Assembly Bill
No. 3123


Introduced by Assembly Member Limón

February 16, 2018


An act to amend Section 10001 of the Public Utilities Code, relating to municipal corporations.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 3123, as introduced, Limón. Utilities owned by municipal corporations.
Existing law authorizes a municipal corporation to acquire, construct, own, operate, or lease any public utility and authorizes a municipal corporation to operate a public utility within or without the corporate limits when necessary to supply the municipality, or its inhabitants or any portion thereof, with the service desired. Existing law defines “public utility” for these purposes.
This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to the provision defining “public utility.”
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 10001 of the Public Utilities Code is amended to read:

10001.
 “Public utility” utility, as used in this article, means the supply of a municipal corporation alone or together with its inhabitants, or any portion thereof, with water, light, heat, power, sewage collection, treatment, or disposal for sanitary or drainage purposes, transportation of persons or property, means of communication, or means of promoting the public convenience.
