NFPA is reporting that this is true.  Below is the text from an internal NFPA memo I copied from a pdf file.

RE:  California Building Code Adoption  

I am pleased to report that the California Building Standards Commission voted on Tuesday to adopt NFPA 5000 and NFPA 1 for the State of California. This adoption is the result of an enormous effort by the staff, our volunteers, members and supporters who helped make the case that NFPA’s consensus process would best serve the interest of the people of California. The adoption will take effect in 2005 after the completion of the state amendment process. NFPA will be working closely with the state agencies to ensure a smooth transition.
