Assembly Bill
No. 1810


Introduced by Committee on Transportation

March 04, 2019


An act to amend Sections 13975 and 14500 of, and to repeal Section 14534.1 of, the Government Code, to amend Section 10326.2 of the Public Contract Code, to amend Sections 120050 and 180257 of the Public Utilities Code, to amend Sections 372 and 2101 of the Streets and Highways Code, and to amend Sections 12509.5, 12804.9, and 34621 of the Vehicle Code, relating to transportation.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1810, as amended, Committee on Transportation. Transportation: omnibus bill.

(1)Existing law establishes in state government the Transportation Agency, which includes various departments and state entities, including the California Transportation Commission. Existing law vests the California Transportation Commission with specified powers, duties, and functions relative to transportation matters. Existing law requires the commission to retain independent authority to perform the duties and functions prescribed to it under any provision of law.

This bill would exclude the California Transportation Commission from the Transportation Agency, establish it as an entity in state government, and require it to act in an independent oversight role. The bill would also make conforming changes.

(2)

(1) Existing law authorizes the Department of General Services, until January 1, 2021, to purchase and equip heavy mobile fleet vehicles and special equipment for use by the Department of Transportation by means of best value procurement, using specifications and criteria developed in consultation with the Department of Transportation. Existing law defines “best value procurement” as a contract award determined by objective criteria related to price, features, functions, and life-cycle costs. Existing law limits the total value of vehicles and equipment purchased through this best value procurement authorization to $20,000,000 dollars annually.
This bill would extend, until January 1, 2022, the Department of General Services authorization to purchase and equip heavy mobile fleet vehicles and special equipment for use by the Department of Transportation. The bill would also increase the cap on the total value of vehicles and equipment purchased through this best value procurement authorization to $50,000,000 dollars each fiscal year.

(3)

(2) Existing law establishes the San Diego Metropolitan Transit Development Board in a specified portion of the County of San Diego.
This bill would exempt the board from regulation by counties and cities regarding building, zoning, and related matters. The bill would specify that the board is included within the meaning of “public agency” for the purposes of work performed on a county highway.

(4)

(3) Existing law requires that the bonds, or each series of bonds, issued by a local transportation authority are to be signed by the chairperson or vice chairperson of the authority and the auditor-controller of the authority.
This bill would provide that an authorized officer of the authority may sign the bonds in lieu of the chairperson or the vice chairperson of the authority.

(5)

(4) Existing law authorizes the California Transportation Commission to adopt locations for state highways on routes authorized by law, and authorizes the relinquishment of certain segments of state highways from the state to local agencies if certain conditions are met. Existing law specifies the former portions of Route 72 that have been relinquished and are not state highways.
This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City of Whittier and the County of Los Angeles the portion of Route 72 within their respective jurisdictional limits if the city and the county and the Department of Transportation enter into an agreement providing for the relinquishment, as specified.

(6)

(5) Existing law provides that all moneys in the Highway Users Tax Account in the Transportation Tax Fund are continuously appropriated for, among other things, the research, planning, construction, improvement, maintenance, and operation of public streets and highways, as specified.
This bill would provide that the “maintenance of public streets and highways” includes the maintenance or removal of cattle guards within the right-of-way of a county highway.

(7)

(6) Existing law requires the Department of Motor Vehicles, upon application for an original driver’s license, except a student license, to require an examination of the applicant, and requires the applicant to submit to an examination appropriate to the type of motor vehicle or combination of vehicles the applicant desires a license to drive. Under existing law, the license classifications include Class A, Class B, Class C, Class M1, and Class M2. Class M2 designated vehicles include a motorized bicycle or moped, a bicycle with an attached motor, except an electric bicycle, as specified, and a motorized scooter, defined as a 2-wheeled device that has handlebars, has a floorboard that is designed to be stood upon when riding, and is powered by an electric motor or by a source other than electric power. Existing law also requires a person to obtain an instruction permit prior to before operating, or being issued a class M1 or M2 driver’s license to operate, those vehicles. Under existing law, a valid driver’s license or instruction permit is required to operate a motorized scooter.
This bill would delete motorized scooters from the list of vehicles requiring a Class M2 license or permit, thus allowing a person with a valid license or permit of any class to operate a motorized scooter.

(8)

(7) Existing law provides for the initial application for a motor carrier permit and for the permit’s annual renewal.
This bill would authorize a motor carrier of property to continue to operate for 30 days past the expiration date of the motor carrier permit, if the motor carrier of property meets specified conditions that include, among others, having applied to the department for a renewal of a motor carrier permit before the expiration of the motor carrier permit and not being rated unsatisfactory for any of the motor carriers’ terminals inspected by the Department of the California Highway Patrol for the 30-day period.
