California has a bicameral legislature, named the California State Legislature, which consists of the California State Assembly and the California State Senate. The Assembly has 80 members representing 80 districts, with members serving a two-year term. The Senate has 40 members representing 40 districts, each serving a four-year term. Members of the California State Legislature can serve for a combined 12 years in both chambers.
Municipal codes are not created by the state legislature, but by counties, cities, and other local government bodies. For more information about researching municipal codes, visit the Law Library's guide on the topic.
