LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1290, as amended, Gloria. California Housing Finance Agency: stakeholder group: housing. Water projects: financial assistance and construction financing: Pure Water San Diego Program.
Existing law, the Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Law of 1997, establishes the Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Fund to provide grants or revolving fund loans for the design and construction of projects for public water systems that will enable those systems to meet safe drinking water standards.
Existing law, the Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act, establishes the State Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund program pursuant to which state and federal funds are continuously appropriated from the State Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund to the State Water Resources Control Board for loans and other financial assistance for, among other purposes in accordance with the federal Clean Water Act, measures to reduce the demand for publicly owned treatment works capacity through water conservation, efficiency, or reuse and for reusing or recycling wastewater, stormwater, or subsurface drainage water.
This bill would require, as a condition of receiving construction financing from the Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Fund and as a condition of receiving financial assistance from the State Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund, for specified work performed at the City of San Diego’s North City Water Reclamation Plant, North City Pure Water Facility, or any other portion of the Pure Water San Diego Program, an applicant to ensure a construction contract awarded on or after January 1, 2020, requires the contractor to enter into a project labor agreement in accordance with specified existing law. The bill would provide that this condition on receiving construction financing and financial assistance remains in effect only until completion of all phases of the Pure Water San Diego Program.
This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the City of San Diego.

Existing law establishes the California Housing Finance Agency in the Department of Housing and Community Development for the primary purpose of meeting the housing needs of persons and families of low or moderate income.

This bill would require the California Housing Finance Agency, in collaboration with the Treasurer’s office, to convene a stakeholder group that includes developers to identify actions that can be taken to streamline the application process for specified housing finance programs. The bill would require the stakeholder process to be completed by January 1, 2021, and the actions identified to be reported to the Legislature on or before June 30, 2021.
