5099.2.
  

The director shall maintain and keep up to date a comprehensive plan for the development of the outdoor recreation resources of the state.

The director shall apply to the Department of the Interior of the United States for participation in or the receipt of aid under the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965. He shall enter into contracts and agreements with the Department of the Interior of the United States, keep financial and other records relating thereto, and furnish to appropriate officials thereof such reports and information as may be reasonably necessary to enable such officials to perform their duties under the act. In connection with obtaining the benefits of the act, the director shall coordinate his activities with, and represent the interests of, all state and local governmental agencies and subdivisions of the state having interests in the planning, development, and maintenance of outdoor recreation resources and facilities. In so doing, the director shall give equal consideration to urban and rural areas in disbursing the fund.

(Added by Stats. 1967, Ch. 1322.)

5099.35.
  

The Legislature recognizes that it is the intended purpose of the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965, as expressed in such act, that such federal financial assistance as may be provided to the state pursuant to the act shall be in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, state and local outdoor recreation funds.

(Added by Stats. 1972, Ch. 1222.)

5099.4.
  

The director may receive, on behalf of state and local agencies and subdivisions of the state, and disburse any federal funds for outdoor recreation purposes received pursuant to the act. Such funds shall be deposited in the Special Deposit Fund in the State Treasury provided for by Section 16370 of the Government Code, and may be expended under such terms and conditions as may be required by the federal government.

(Added by Stats. 1967, Ch. 1322.)

5099.5.
  

The director shall make no commitment or enter into any agreement pursuant to an exercise of authority under this chapter until he has determined that any money or property required to be furnished as the state’s share, if any, of project cost is available for such purpose. It is the legislative intent that, to such extent as may be necessary to assure the proper operation and maintenance of areas and facilities acquired or developed pursuant to the act participated in by this state under authority of this chapter, such areas and facilities shall be publicly maintained for outdoor recreation purposes. The director may enter into and administer agreements with the Department of the Interior of the United States for planning, acquisition, and development projects involving participation in or receipt of aid under the act on behalf of any local governmental agency or subdivision of this state.

The director may disburse any of those funds to the local agency or subdivision only when he or she determines the standards established pursuant to Section 115880 of the Health and Safety Code are being complied with.

(Amended by Stats. 1996, Ch. 1023, Sec. 401. Effective September 29, 1996.)
