CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 1041


Introduced by Assembly Member Levine

An act to amend Section 10632 of the Water 11051 of the Vehicle Code, relating to water. transportation.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1041, as amended, Levine. Urban water suppliers: urban water shortage contingency analysis. Transportation funding: transportation improvement fee.
The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, as proposed to be enacted by SB 1 of the 2017–18 Regular Session, imposes a transportation improvement fee on each vehicle, as specified. The act requires that the revenues from that fee be available for expenditure only on specified transportation purposes.
This bill would amend a provision to be added by SB 1 to correct an erroneous cross-reference in these provisions.

Existing law, the Urban Water Management Planning Act, requires every public and private urban water supplier that directly or indirectly provides water for municipal purposes to prepare and adopt an urban water management plan and to update its plan once every 5 years on or before December 31 in years ending in 5 and zero, except as specified. Existing law requires that the plan provide an urban water shortage contingency analysis, including an estimate of the minimum water supply available during each of the following 3 water years based on the driest 3-year historic sequence for the agency’s water supply.

This bill would instead require an estimate of the minimum water supply available during each of the following 5 years to be based on the driest 5-year historic sequence for the agency’s water supply.

Existing law requires that the analysis include stages of action to be undertaken by the urban water supplier in response to water supply shortages, including up to a 50% reduction in water supply, and an outline of specific water supply conditions that are applicable to each stage.

This bill would instead require stages of action to be undertaken by the urban water supplier in response to specified percentage reductions in water supply.

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
