Assembly Bill No. 1207


Introduced by Assembly Member Brough

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1207, as amended, Brough. Radioactive material: transportation.
Existing law requires the State Department of Public Health to adopt reasonable regulations that, in its judgment, promote the safe transportation of radioactive materials. Existing law requires the Department of the California Highway Patrol to adopt regulations specifying the time at which shipments may occur and the routes that are to be used in the transportation of cargoes of hazardous radioactive materials.
This bill would require the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission California Nuclear Transport Working Group to conduct a study by January 1, 2019, to assess the efficacy of those regulations in minimizing the risks to public health and safety resulting from the transportation of hazardous radioactive materials.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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