CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill No. 20


Introduced by Senator Dodd
(Principal coauthor: Assembly Member Aguiar-Curry)

December 03, 2018


An act to amend Section 11011.24 of the Government Code, relating to surplus state property, and making an appropriation therefor.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 20, as introduced, Dodd. Surplus state property: Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District.
(1) Existing law authorizes the Director of General Services, by January 1, 2015, to sell or exchange, at fair market value based upon an appraisal approved by the Department of General Services, all or part of a specified parcel of state property only to the County of Napa upon those terms, conditions, reservations, and exceptions the director determines are in the best interest of the state, and subject to other requirements. Existing law requires reimbursement of the Department of General Services for any cost or expense incurred in the disposition of the property from the proceeds of the disposition of the property.
This bill would apply the authorization described above to the Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District and the County of Napa, and would extend the period within which the sale described above may be made to January 1, 2026.
(2) The California Constitution requires that the proceeds from the sale of surplus state property be used to pay the principal and interest on bonds issued pursuant to the Economic Recovery Bond Act, until the principal and interest on those bonds are fully paid, the final payment of which was made in the 2015–16 fiscal year, after which these proceeds are required to be deposited into the Special Fund for Economic Uncertainties, a continuously appropriated fund.
By increasing the amount transferred into the Special Fund for Economic Uncertainties, a continuously appropriated fund, this bill would make an appropriation. This bill would make clarifying changes to this effect.
(3) This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for Napa County and the Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District.
Vote: 2/3   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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

(b) An agreement for the sale or exchange of the property identified in, and pursuant to, subdivision (a), shall require the County of Napa or the Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District to retain title to the entire property sold or exchanged for use as a park or wilderness preserve, or in the event of the future sale or exchange of that property by the County of Napa, Napa or Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District, shall require the County of Napa, Napa or the Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District, by recorded easement, to limit future uses of the property to a park or wilderness preserve.

(d) The Department of General Services shall be reimbursed for any cost or expense incurred in the disposition of the property described in subdivision (a) from the proceeds of the disposition. The net proceeds of any moneys received from the disposition of the property shall be paid into the Deficit Recovery Bond Retirement Sinking Fund Subaccount, Special Fund for Economic Uncertainties, as established by subdivision (f) of Section 20 of Article XVI of the California Constitution.

SEC. 2.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special statute is necessary and that a general statute cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique circumstances applicable to the County of Napa and Napa County Regional Park and Open Space District.
