Assemblymember Holly Mitchell (D-Culver City) is the author of AB 1432, dubbed Caylee's Law.
The California bill will also make it a felony not to report a child's death within two hours.
The legislation was sparked by the recent Florida murder trial, during which it was revealed that Caylee's mother /*Casey Anthony*/ failed to report her daughter missing for one month after her disappearance. In a controversial verdict, Anthony was acquitted on murder charges.
There are now 17 states with pending Caylee laws.
