CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 1933


Introduced by Assembly Member Maienschein

January 24, 2018


An act relating to greenhouse gases, and making an appropriation therefor.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1933, as introduced, Maienschein. Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund: appropriations: recycling infrastructure projects.
The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 designates the State Air Resources Board as the state agency charged with monitoring and regulating sources of emissions of greenhouse gases. The act requires the state board to approve a statewide greenhouse gas emissions limit equivalent to the statewide greenhouse gas emissions level in 1990 to be achieved by 2020 and to ensure that statewide greenhouse gas emissions are reduced to at least 40% below the 1990 level by 2030. The act authorizes the state board to include the use of market-based compliance mechanisms in implementing the act. Existing law requires all moneys, except for fines and penalties, collected by the state board as part of a market-based compliance mechanism to be deposited in the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund and to be available upon appropriation.
Existing law makes a legislative declaration that it is the policy goal of the state that not less than 75% of solid waste generated be source reduced, recycled, or composted by 2020.
This bill would appropriate $200,000,000 from the fund to the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery for organic waste recycling infrastructure projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and solid waste recycling infrastructure projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 The amount of two hundred million dollars ($200,000,000) is hereby appropriated from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund, without regard to fiscal year, to the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, to be allocated as follows:
(a) One hundred million dollars ($100,000,000) for organic waste recycling infrastructure projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including, but not limited to, water treatment facilities and composting facilities.
(b) One hundred million dollars ($100,000,000) for solid waste recycling infrastructure projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
