LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 281, as amended, Wiener. Cow Palace Joint Powers Authority.
(1) Existing law authorizes 2 or more public agencies, by agreement, to form a joint powers authority to exercise any power common to the contracting parties, as specified. Existing law authorizes the agreement to set forth the manner by which the joint powers authority will be governed.
Existing law divides the state into district agricultural associations for the purposes of, among other things, holding fairs and expositions exhibiting all of the industries and industrial enterprises, resources, and products of every kind or nature of the state with a view toward improving, exploiting, encouraging, and stimulating those industries. Existing law provides that the 1-A District Agricultural Association governs the agricultural district that encompasses the County of San Mateo and the City and County of San Francisco.
This bill would require, on or before January 1, 2020, the City and County of San Francisco, the City of Daly City, and the County of San Mateo to enter into a joint powers agreement to form the Cow Palace Joint Powers Authority for the purposes of managing, developing, or disposing of the real property known as the Cow Palace. This bill, the Cow Palace Authority Act, would establish the Cow Palace Authority (hereafter “the authority”) for the purpose of managing, developing, or disposing of the real property known as the Cow Palace. The bill would establish the governing board of the authority, comprised of members appointed by the Mayor of the City of Daly City, the Mayor of the City and County of San Francisco, and the Board of Supervisors of the County of San Mateo. The bill would grant the board the power to exercise various duties, including the power to accept and receive grants, incur indebtedness, and raise revenue, subject to applicable voter approval requirements and other specified election procedures, as provided. The bill would also require the board to convene a Cow Palace Advisory Committee to assist and advise the board in carrying out its functions, as specified. The bill would further require the board of the authority to provide for regular audits of the authority and annual financial reports.
This bill would transfer require the real property known as the Cow Palace to be transferred from the 1-A District Agricultural Association to the Cow Palace Joint Powers Authority, authority on or before January 1, 2021, and would provide that the Cow Palace Joint Powers Authority authority is the successor in interest to any contact contract entered into by the 1-A District Agricultural Association on or before December 31, 2019. This bill would make findings and declarations that this transfer constitutes a public purpose. This bill would authorize the Cow Palace Joint Powers Authority authority to, among other things, enter into contracts or agreements for the development of the property for affordable and market-rate mixed-use housing and establish minimum local zoning standards, including including, but not limited to, standards for height, density, parking, and floor area ratio, that apply to a project on the property that are different from those adopted by any other affected local jurisdiction. By increasing the duties of local officials, this bill would establish a state-mandated local program.
(2) Existing law generally regulates the transfer of firearms. A violation of the statutes governing agricultural districts is generally a misdemeanor.
Existing law provides that it is an offense to bring or possess, among other things, a firearm within any state or local public building. Among other exceptions, existing law provides an exception for guns brought to a gun show conducted pursuant to specified provisions of law, including the Gun Show Enforcement and Security Act of 2000. A violation of this provision is a felony.
Existing law, the Gun Show Enforcement and Security Act of 2000, generally regulates gun shows and requires all firearms transfers at a gun show or event to be in accordance with applicable state and federal laws. A violation of the act is a misdemeanor or infraction, as specified.
This bill bill, on and after January 1, 2020, would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition on any property owned, occupied, operated, or controlled by by, the 1-A District Agricultural Association, or by another Association or other state agency, for district or association purposes, and, on and after January 1, 2020, on the real property known as the Cow Palace, as specified. or by the authority, except as provided in any contract entered into by the 1-A District Agricultural Association on or before December 31, 2019. The bill would exclude from its provisions a gun buy-back event held by a law enforcement agency. A violation of this prohibition these prohibitions could be a felony, misdemeanor, or infraction pursuant to the provisions described above.
(3) This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the City and County of San Francisco, the City of Daly City, and the County of San Mateo.
The provisions of the bill would remain in effect until January 1, 2120.
By creating a new crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
(4) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
