Assembly Bill No. 199
CHAPTER 768

An act to amend Sections 26003 and 26011.8 of the Public Resources Code, relating to alternative energy, and declaring the urgency thereof, to take effect immediately.

[ Approved by Governor  October 11, 2015. Filed with Secretary of State  October 11, 2015. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 199, Eggman. Alternative energy: recycled feedstock.
Existing law establishes the California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority to provide financial assistance for projects that promote the use of alternative energies. Existing law, until January 1, 2021, authorizes the authority to approve a project for financial assistance in the form of a sales and use tax exclusion. Existing law prohibits the authority from granting sales and use tax exclusions that exceed $100,000,000 for each calendar year.
This bill would expand projects eligible for the sales and use tax exclusion to include projects that process or utilize recycled feedstock, but would not include a project that processes or utilizes recycled feedstock in a manner that constitutes disposal.
This bill would incorporate additional changes to Sections 26003 and 26011.8 of the Public Resources Code proposed by AB 1269 that would become operative only if this bill and AB 1269 are chaptered and become effective on or before January 1, 2016, and this bill is chaptered last.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
Vote: 2/3   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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

 (a) The purpose of this section is to promote the creation of California-based manufacturing, California-based jobs, advanced manufacturing, the reduction of greenhouse gases, or reductions in air and water pollution or energy consumption. In furtherance of this purpose, the authority may approve a project for financial assistance in the form of the sales and use tax exclusion established in Section 6010.8 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
(b) For purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:
(1) “Project” means tangible personal property if at least 50 percent of its use is either to process recycled feedstock that is intended to be reused in the production of another product or using recycled feedstock in the production of another product or soil amendment, or tangible personal property that is used in the state for the design, manufacture, production, or assembly of advanced manufacturing, advanced transportation technologies, or alternative source products, components, or systems, as defined in Section 26003. “Project” does not include tangible personal property that processes or uses recycled feedstock in a manner that would constitute disposal as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 40192.
(2) “Recycled feedstock” means materials that would otherwise be destined for disposal, having completed their intended end use and product lifecycle.
(3) “Soil amendments” may include “compost,” as defined in Section 14525 of the Food and Agricultural Code, “fertilizing material,” as defined in Section 14533 of the Food and Agricultural Code, “gypsum” or “phosphatic sulfate gypsum,” as those terms are defined in Section 14537 of the Food and Agricultural Code, or a substance distributed for the purpose of promoting plant growth or improving the quality of crops by conditioning soils through physical means.
(c) The authority shall publish notice of the availability of project applications and deadlines for submission of project applications to the authority.
(d) The authority shall evaluate project applications based upon all of the following criteria:
(1) The extent to which the project develops manufacturing facilities, or purchases equipment for manufacturing facilities, located in California.
(2) The extent to which the anticipated benefit to the state from the project equals or exceeds the projected benefit to the participating party from the sales and use tax exclusion.
(3) The extent to which the project will create new, permanent jobs in California.
(4) To the extent feasible, the extent to which the project, or the product produced by the project, results in a reduction of greenhouse gases, a reduction in air or water pollution, an increase in energy efficiency, or a reduction in energy consumption, beyond what is required by federal or state law or regulation.
(5) The extent of unemployment in the area in which the project is proposed to be located.
(6) Any other factors the authority deems appropriate in accordance with this section.
(e) At a duly noticed public hearing, the authority shall approve, by resolution, project applications for financial assistance.
(f) Notwithstanding subdivision (j), and without regard to the actual date of any transaction between a participating party and the authority, any project approved by the authority by resolution for the sales and use tax exclusion pursuant to Section 6010.8 of the Revenue and Taxation Code before March 24, 2010, shall not be subject to this section.
(g) The Legislative Analyst’s Office shall report to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee on the effectiveness of this program, on or before January 1, 2019, by evaluating factors, including, but not limited to, the following:

(i) (1) The authority shall study the efficacy and cost benefit of the sales and use tax exemption as it relates to advanced manufacturing projects. The study shall include the number of jobs created, the costs of each job, and the annual salary of each job. The study shall also consider a dynamic analysis of the economic output to the state that would occur without the sales and use tax exemption. Before January 1, 2017, the authority shall submit to the Legislature, consistent with Section 9795 of the Government Code, the result of the study.
(2) Before January 1, 2015, the authority shall, consistent with Section 9795 of the Government Code, submit to the Legislature an interim report on the efficacy of the program conducted pursuant to this section. The study shall include recommendations on program changes that would increase the program’s efficacy in creating permanent and temporary jobs, and whether eligibility for the program should be extended or narrowed to other manufacturing types. The authority may work with the Legislative Analyst’s Office in preparing the report and its recommendations.
(j) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2021, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that becomes operative on or before January 1, 2021, deletes or extends that date. The sale or purchase of tangible personal property of a project approved before January 1, 2021, shall continue to be excluded from sales and use taxes pursuant to Section 6010.8 of the Revenue and Taxation Code for the period of time set forth in the authority’s resolution approving the project pursuant to this section.
