CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 1226


Introduced by Assembly Member McCarty

February 17, 2017


An act to amend Sections Section 6830.1 and 6894.1 of the Harbors and Navigation Code, relating to river port districts.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1226, as amended, McCarty. River port districts: Sacramento-Yolo Port District.
Existing law provides for the formation of the Sacramento-Yolo Port District, as prescribed, and establishes the Sacramento-Yolo Port Commission, composed of 5 members. Existing law requires that 4 members be appointed by the City Council of the City of West Sacramento, and one member be appointed by the Board of Supervisors of Yolo County.
This bill would specify that the term of those members appointed to the commission is 4 years from the date of appointment, and would provide that commission members serve at the pleasure of the appointing authority. The bill would authorize the replacement of commission members by the appointing authority prior to the end of that 4-year term, in the manner set by law for appointments by the appointing authority.

Existing law authorizes the district to acquire and dispose of real and personal property, as specified. Existing law, notwithstanding that authorization, prohibits the district from selling or dismantling the Deepwater Channel or the North Terminal Property without the prior consent of the City of Sacramento, the County of Sacramento, and the County of Yolo, or selling or leasing, for nonmaritime purposes, land in excess of 10 acres located north of Southport Parkway and west of Lake Washington, unless, prior to executing a sale or lease, the board of the Sacramento-Yolo Port District makes a written finding, based on substantial evidence in the record, that the proposed sale or lease is necessary to maintain the financial viability of the port.

This bill would delete that provision prohibiting the port district from selling or leasing for nonmaritime purposes, those lands north of Southport Parkway and west of Lake Washington, unless, prior to executing a sale or lease, the board makes that specified finding.
