CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 58


Introduced by Assembly Member Travis Allen

December 06, 2016


An act to amend Section 5002.4 5080.40 of the Public Resources Code, relating to the state park system.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 58, as amended, Travis Allen. State park system: operating agreements.
Existing law authorizes the Department of Parks and Recreation and any public agency to enter into agreements for the care, maintenance, administration, and control by any party to the agreement of lands under the jurisdiction of any party to the agreement for the purposes of the state park system. Existing law prohibits an operating lease or agreement from being entered into, or amended, unless certain conditions are met. Existing law exempts this prohibition from amendments to existing leases or agreements if, among other things, the amendment’s impact to the park unit will not exceed $1,000,000, as provided.
This bill would instead provide the exemption if, among other things, the amendment’s impact to the park unit will not exceed $2,000,000, as provided.

Under existing law, the Department of Parks and Recreation controls the state park system, which is made up of units. Existing law requires the department to prepare or revise a general plan for a unit, as specified, and requires the department to furnish a copy of the general plan for any unit of the state park system for which a plan has been prepared to any Member of the Legislature upon request.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to these state park system provisions.
