LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1094, as amended, John A. Pérez Swanson. California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank. Public school campuses: recycling and composting bins.
Existing law requires the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery to develop and implement a source reduction and recycling program for school districts that is designed to assist school districts in establishing and implementing source reduction and recycling programs and to complement and further prescribed educational goals and the integrated waste management issues addressed within the science curriculum framework developed by the State Board of Education.
Existing law authorizes and encourages school districts to establish and maintain a paper recycling program in all classrooms, administrative offices, and other areas owned or leased by the school district where a significant quantity of wastepaper is generated or collected. The Department of Resource Recycling and Recovery, in conjunction with the State Department of Education, is required to coordinate the implementation of this program by providing materials, technical assistance, and other resources that it deems necessary to aid and encourage educational agencies to establish paper recycling programs.
This bill would authorize a school district to provide recycling and composting bins on the campus of each public elementary and secondary school. The bill would authorize a school district to determine the number of bins to be located on a campus on the basis of the size of both the pupil population and the surface area of that campus.

Existing law establishes the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank in the Business, Transportation and Housing Agency. Existing law establishes that the board of directors of the bank consists of 5 members, as specified.

This bill would add a member of the Assembly and a member of the Senate as advisory members of the board. This bill would require the bank to serve as the primary state agency for purposes of developing an application for, and applying to, any federal infrastructure bank or financing authority.
