CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2013–2014 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1088


Introduced by Assembly Member Muratsuchi

February 22, 2013


An act to amend Section 65007 of the Government Code, relating to land use add Section 12096.45 to the Government Code, relating to the California Office of Business and Economic Development.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1088, as amended, Muratsuchi. Planning and Zoning Law. The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development: trade office: Japan.
Existing law establishes the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, which is administered by a director appointed by the Governor. The office serves the Governor as the lead entity for economic strategy and the marketing of California on issues relating to business development, private sector investment, and economic growth. The office exercises powers related to economic development, including, among others, making recommendations to the Governor and the Legislature regarding policies, programs, and actions to advance statewide economic goals.
This bill would require the office, no later than January 1, 2016, to establish under its jurisdiction an overseas trade office in Tokyo, Japan, as specified.

The Planning and Zoning Law requires a city or county general plan to include specified mandatory elements, including a land use element that designates the proposed general distribution and general location and extent of the uses of the land for various purposes and a conservation element that considers, among other things, the effect of development within the jurisdiction, as described in the land use element, on natural resources located on public lands. The land use element is required to identify areas that are subject to flooding, and the conservation element may also cover, among other things, flood control.

This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to a provision of the Planning and Zoning Law.
