LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 209, as amended, Dahle. State of emergency: termination after 7 45 days: extension by the Legislature.
Existing law, the California Emergency Services Act, authorizes the Governor to proclaim a state of emergency when specified conditions of disaster or extreme peril to the safety of persons and property exist, and authorizes the Governor to exercise certain powers in response to that emergency, including, but not limited to, suspending specified statutes, ordinances, orders, regulations, or rules. Existing law requires all of the powers granted the Governor by the California Emergency Services Act with respect to a state of emergency to terminate when the state of emergency has been terminated by proclamation of the Governor or by concurrent resolution of the Legislature declaring it at an end.
This bill would require a state of emergency to terminate 7 45 days after the Governor’s proclamation of the state of emergency unless the Legislature extends it by a concurrent resolution.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
