Assembly Bill No. 751

An act to repeal Section 100.4 of the Streets and Highways Code, relating to transportation, and declaring the urgency thereof, to take effect immediately.

[ Approved by Governor  October 03, 2011. Filed with Secretary of State  October 03, 2011. ]


AB 751, Cedillo. Freeway construction.
Existing law requires the Department of Transportation to enter into an agreement prior to any closure of a city street or county highway due to construction of a freeway with a city council or board of supervisors having jurisdiction. Existing law provides an exception to those provisions for a freeway segment within the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, if specified requirements have been met, including that an agreement with one or more counties and cities is not possible because an impasse has existed for 10 or more years after an initial route was adopted. Existing law requires the department to prepare an environmental impact report and establish an outreach program, as specified, for any freeway constructed pursuant to this exception.
This bill would repeal these provisions establishing an exception for a freeway segment to be constructed without an agreement within the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
Vote: 2/3   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
