As Amends the Law Today


SECTION 1.

 Section 118.8 is added to the Streets and Highways Code, to read:

118.8.
 (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the department, upon terms and conditions that are in the best interest of the state, shall transfer vacant real property geographically bounded by North Gaffey Street on the west, the south terminus of the State Highway Route 110 Freeway on the south and east, and the Vincent Thomas Bridge and State Highway Route 47 south off ramp on the north in the City of Los Angeles to that city for use by its park and recreation department as a park. The park shall be operated for the benefit of the general public.
(b) The department shall transfer the property described in subdivision (a) in “as is” condition. The contract shall provide that the City of Los Angeles shall be fully responsible for the maintenance and operation of the property in a manner that the property does not become a public nuisance. The state shall not have any liability for any improvement, construction, operation, or maintenance of the park or park facilities.
SEC. 2.
 The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is necessary and that a general law 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 relinquishment of vacant land in Los Angeles.
