AB 739, as amended, Salas. Local officers: deputy coroner. Integrated Regional Water Management Plans: conveyance projects.
Existing law, the Integrated Regional Water Management Planning Act, authorizes a regional water management group to prepare and adopt an integrated regional water management plan with specified components relating to water supply and water quality. Existing law authorizes the Department of Water Resources to award grants to eligible projects consistent with an adopted integrated regional water management plan.
This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to enact future legislation that would require the department to provide grants and expenditures, consistent with an integrated regional water management plan, for the planning, design, and construction of local and regional conveyance projects that support regional and interregional connectivity and water management and provide certain benefits.

Existing law generally sets forth the duties of a coroner. Existing law specifically requires a coroner to hold an inquest under certain circumstances and authorizes a coroner holding an inquest to, among other things, issue subpoenas.

This bill would, for purposes relating to the duty of a coroner to hold an inquest, provide that a coroner’s appointed deputy or authorized deputy shall include a deputy coroner or part-time or volunteer personnel of the sheriff coroner’s office who is a reserve officer, as specified.
