As Amends the Law Today


SECTION 1.

 Section 93006 is added to the Government Code, to read:

93006.
 (a) State moneys shall not be used to initiate or operate rail service on the North Coast Railroad Authority’s, or Great Redwood Trail Agency’s, rail rights-of-way north of the City of Willits or for a project that is designed to rehabilitate, modernize, maintain, or repair an existing operation or facility, including a rail terminal, a railyard, a rail facility, and rail infrastructure, on the North Coast Railroad Authority’s, or Great Redwood Trail Agency’s, rail rights-of-way north of the City of Willits.
(b) State moneys, including proceeds from the sale of general obligation bonds, shall not be spent for any new bulk coal terminal project within the County of Humboldt.
(c) For purposes of this section, “new bulk coal terminal” means a terminal that stores, handles, or transports coal in bulk to a degree or significance that is categorized as having the potential for significant impacts in an environmental document prepared pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (Division 13 (commencing with Section 21000) of the Public Resources Code) as a result of the storage, handling, or transport of coal in bulk.
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 geological and environmental conditions existing in and around the North Coast Rail Authority’s rail rights-of-way north of the City of Willits and in the County of Humboldt.
