CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill
No. 1351


Introduced by Senator Beall

February 21, 2020


An act to amend Section 90 of the Streets and Highways Code, relating to transportation. An act to amend Sections 99233.2 and 99282.5 of the Public Utilities Code, relating to transportation.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1351, as amended, Beall. Department of Transportation: state highways. Transportation planning.
Existing law requires transportation planning agencies to conduct certain transportation planning and programming activities, including to prepare and adopt regional transportation plans. Existing law authorizes certain statutorily created transportation planning agencies to allocate up to 3% of their annual revenues for transportation planning and programming processes, and alternatively authorizes the allocation of a greater amount upon approval by the Director of Transportation.
This bill would prohibit the director from approving an allocation of an amount greater than 5% of a transportation planning agency’s annual revenues.
Existing law requires each transportation planning agency and county transportation commission that has 2 or more transit operators within its jurisdiction, and the San Diego Metropolitan Transit Development Board, to adopt rules and regulations to provide for transfers between the operators’ public transportation services so that the services will be coordinated.
This bill would require those rules and regulations to be updated at least every 4 calendar years to reflect changes to the operators’ transfer policies, payment methods, and any other relevant policy changes.
By expanding the duties of certain local agencies, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
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, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.

Existing law establishes the Department of Transportation and the California Transportation Commission and vests the department with full possession and control of all state highways and all property and rights in property acquired for state highway purposes.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to the latter provision.
