LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2272, as amended, Mayes. State highways: relinquishment.
Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has full possession and control of all state highways. Existing law describes the authorized routes in the state highway system and establishes a process for adoption of a highway on an authorized route by the California Transportation Commission. Existing law authorizes the commission to relinquish to local agencies state highway segments that have been deleted from the state highway system by legislative enactment or have been superseded by relocation, and in certain other cases.
This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City of Palm Springs any portion, or the entirety, of Route 111 within its city limits or sphere of influence, limits, upon terms and conditions the commission finds to be in the best interests of the state, if the department and the city enter into an agreement providing for that relinquishment.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
