LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 584, as amended, Gallagher. Sport fishing licenses. Paradise Irrigation District: water pipeline: design-build process.
Existing law authorizes, until January 1, 2025, local agencies, as defined, to use the design-build project delivery process, as specified, for specified public works.
This bill would authorize the Paradise Irrigation District to utilize the design-build project delivery process to assign contracts for the construction of a water conveyance pipeline from the Town of Paradise to the City of Chico.
This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Paradise Irrigation District.

Existing law requires every person 16 years of age or older who takes any fish, reptile, or amphibian for any purpose other than profit to first obtain a sport fishing license for that purpose, with specified exceptions, and to have that license on their person or in their immediate possession when engaged in carrying out any activity authorized by the license.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to this provision.

Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 22162.8 is added to the Public Contract Code, to read:

22162.8.
 (a) Upon approval of its governing body, the Paradise Irrigation District may use the design-build contracting process described in this chapter to award a contract for a water conveyance pipeline from the Town of Paradise to the City of Chico.
(b) Notwithstanding Section 22169, this section shall not be repealed on January 1, 2025, but shall remain in effect after January 1, 2025.
(c) On and after January 1, 2025, the Paradise Irrigation District may continue to use the design-build process as described by the provisions of this chapter as they read on December 31, 2024, for the conveyance pipeline from the Town of Paradise to the City of Chico.

SEC. 2.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special statute is necessary and that a general statute cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique need to restore adequate water service to the Town of Paradise.
SECTION 1.Section 7145 of the Fish and Game Code is amended to read:
7145.

(a)Except as otherwise provided in this article, every person 16 years of age or older who takes any fish, reptile, or amphibian for any purpose other than profit shall first obtain a valid license for that purpose and shall have that license on their person or in their immediate possession or where otherwise specifically required by law or regulation to be kept when engaged in carrying out any activity authorized by the license. In the case of a person diving from a boat, the license may be kept in the boat, or in the case of a person diving from the shore, the license may be kept within 500 yards of the shore.

(b)(1)This section does not apply to an owner of privately owned real property, or the owner’s invitee, who, without providing compensation, takes fish for purposes other than profit from a lake or pond that is wholly enclosed by that owner’s real property and that is located offstream and does not at any time derive water from, or supply water to, any permanent or intermittent artificial or natural lake, pond, stream, wash, canal, river, creek, waterway, aqueduct, or similar water conveyance system of the state. Access and control of the real property shall be under the direct authority of the owner and not that of another person or entity.

(2)This subdivision does not, and shall not be construed to, authorize the introduction, migration, stocking, or transfer of aquatic species, prohibited species, or any other nonnative or exotic species into state waters or waterways. This subdivision does not supersede or otherwise affect any provision of law that governs aquaculture, including, but not limited to, the operation of trout farms, or any activity that is an adjunct to or a feature of, or that is operated in conjunction with, any other enterprise operated for a fee, including, but not limited to, private parks or private recreation areas.
