As Amends the Law Today


 Section 130067 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

 (a) Notwithstanding any other law, including, but not limited to Sections 130060 and 130061, the office may waive the requirements for the Seton Medical Center in Daly City to comply with this chapter, in whole or in part, if both of the following occur:
(1) The Seton Medical Center submits a plan to the office, on or before January 15, 2022, that proposes compliance with the applicable seismic safety standards of this chapter, and the regulations promulgated pursuant to this chapter, on or before July 1, 2023.
(2) The office accepts the plan submitted by the Seton Medical Center as feasible to complete and promoting public safety.
(b) If the office accepts the plan pursuant to subdivision (a), the Seton Medical Center shall report to the office, in the manner required by the office, on its progress to timely complete the plan, on or before all of the following dates:
(1) April 1, 2022.
(2) July 1, 2022.
(3) October 1, 2022.
(4) January 1, 2023.
(5) April 1, 2023.
(c) The office may revoke its waiver, in whole or in part, of the requirements of this chapter, if the Seton Medical Center fails to timely report progress that the office deems is sufficient to complete the plan.
SEC. 2.
 The Legislature finds and declares that a special statute is necessary and that a general statute cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique financial challenges the Seton Medical Center is resolving while providing medical and care services during the COVID-19 pandemic to underserved and vulnerable populations.
SEC. 3.
 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution.
