LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 977, as amended, Harkey. Water. Harbors and ports: loans: OC Dana Point Harbor.
Existing law authorizes the Department of Boating and Waterways, subject to the approval of the Legislature, to make loans to qualified cities, counties, or districts having the power to acquire, construct, and operate small craft harbors, for the design, planning, acquisition, construction, improvement, maintenance, or operation of small craft harbors and facilities in connection with the harbors, and connecting waterways, if the department finds that the project is feasible.
This bill would require the department to extend until June 30, 2016, all phases of certain loan contracts between the department and the County of Orange, OC Dana Point Harbor.

Existing law requires there to be incorporated in the planning and construction of any physical structure to provide for the conservation, storage, regulation, transportation, or use of water, constructed by the state itself or by the state in cooperation with the United States, features, including, additional storage capacity, that the Department of Water Resources determines necessary or desirable for the preservation of fish and wildlife, and necessary or desirable to permit, on a year-round basis, full utilization of the project for the enhancement of fish and wildlife and for recreational purposes to the extent that those features are consistent with other uses of the project, if any. In making this determination, existing law requires the department to give full consideration to any recommendations that may be made by the Department of Fish and Game, the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Department of Boating and Waterways, any federal agency, and any local governmental agency with jurisdiction over the area involved.

This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes in this provision.
