LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 288, Levine. California Coastal Commission: meeting notices.
The existing California Coastal Act of 1976 establishes the California Coastal Commission and prescribes the membership and functions and duties of the commission. The act requires the commission, among other things, to take various actions with regard to the issuance of permits for development in the coastal zone, as defined, and to conduct public meetings and hearings pertaining to matters before the commission. Existing law requires the commission to provide a notice, including a specific agenda, prior to any meeting or hearing of the commission, as specified.
This bill would require the commission to make the notice of any public meeting or hearing of the commission available in both English and Spanish, and would authorize the commission also to make the notice available in any other language.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 30315.5 is added to the Public Resources Code, to read:

30315.5.
 Notwithstanding any other law, the commission shall make the notice of any public meeting or hearing of the commission available in both English and Spanish, and may also make the notice available in any other language.
