CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1336


Introduced  by  Assembly Member Fletcher

February 18, 2011


An act to amend Section 30500 of the Public Resources Code, relating to coastal resources.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1336, as introduced, Fletcher. Coastal resources: local coastal programs.
Existing law requires each local government lying, in whole or in part, within the coastal zone to prepare a local coastal program for that portion of the coastal zone within its jurisdiction. Existing law requires that the local coastal program prepared pursuant to these provisions also contain a specific public access component to assure that maximum public access to the coast and public recreation areas is provided.
This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to these provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 30500 of the Public Resources Code is amended to read:

30500.
 (a) Each local government lying, in whole or in part, within the coastal zone shall prepare a local coastal program for that portion of the coastal zone within its jurisdiction. However, any local government may request, in writing, the commission to prepare a local coastal program, or a portion thereof, for the local government. Each local coastal program prepared pursuant to this chapter shall contain a specific public access component to assure ensure that maximum public access to the coast and public recreation areas is provided.
(b) Amendments to a local general plan for the purpose of developing a certified local coastal program shall not constitute an amendment of a general plan for purposes of Section 65358 of the Government Code.
(c) The precise content of each local coastal program shall be determined by the local government, consistent with Section 30501, in full consultation with the commission and with full public participation.
