Assembly Bill No. 513
CHAPTER 499

An act to add and repeal Section 42872.1 of the Public Resources Code, relating to tire recycling.

[ Approved by Governor  October 03, 2013. Filed with Secretary of State  October 03, 2013. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 513, Frazier. Tire recycling program: rubberized asphalt.
The California Tire Recycling Act requires a person who purchases a new tire to pay a California tire fee, for deposit in the California Tire Recycling Management Fund, for expenditure by the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, upon appropriation by the Legislature, to pay the costs of operating the tire recycling program. The act provides that the tire recycling program may include the awarding of grants, loans, subsidies, and rebates and the payment of incentives for various purposes related to reducing landfill disposal of used whole tires and tire recycling. Existing law requires the moneys in the fund, except as specified, to be appropriated to the department in the annual Budget Act in a manner consistent with the department’s 5-year plan.
This bill would establish the Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Market Development Act and would require the department, in accordance with the tire recycling program, to award grants for certain public agency projects that utilize rubberized asphalt concrete.
The bill would require the department to award these grants in the amount of $2 for every 12 pounds of crumb rubber used in a public works or disability access project, but would authorize the department to adjust this rate if it finds that the adjusted amount would further the purposes of the tire recycling act. The bill would make the act inoperative on June 30, 2019, and would repeal the act on January 1, 2020.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 42872.1 is added to the Public Resources Code, to read:

42872.1.
 (a) This section shall be known, and may be cited, as the Rubberized Asphalt Concrete Market Development Act.
(b) In accordance with the tire recycling program authorized by Section 42872, the department shall award grants in the following manner:
(1) To cities, counties, and other local governmental agencies for the funding of public works projects that utilize rubberized asphalt concrete.

(c) (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), the department shall award the grants pursuant to subdivision (b) in the amount of two dollars ($2) for every 12 pounds of crumb rubber used in a public works or disability access project by a state or local governmental agency, including a regional park district.
(2) The department may adjust the amount of grants awarded pursuant to paragraph (1) to an amount that is greater than, or less than, two dollars ($2) for every 12 pounds of crumb rubber if the department finds this adjustment would further the purposes of this article.
