CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill
No. 214


Introduced by Senator Bates

January 12, 2021


An act to repeal Section 1965.7 of the Streets and Highways Code, relating to neighborhood electric vehicles.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 214, as introduced, Bates. Neighborhood electric vehicles: County of Orange: Ranch Plan Planned Community.
Existing law, until January 1, 2022, authorizes the County of Orange to establish a neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) transportation plan for the Ranch Plan Planned Community in that county. Existing law requires the plan to include specified elements, including provisions relating to parking, charging, NEV only lanes, and shared use with conventional vehicle lanes. Existing law makes operating a NEV in violation of certain provisions an infraction.
This bill would repeal the January 1, 2022, sunset date, thereby indefinitely extending the County of Orange’s authority to establish a NEV transportation plan for the Ranch Plan Planned Community. By indefinitely extending the operative period of a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 1965.7 of the Streets and Highways Code is repealed.
1965.7.

This article shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2022, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2022, deletes or extends that date.

SEC. 2.

 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution.
