LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1742, as amended, Santiago. California Conservation Corps. Korean American National Museum.
Existing law establishes in state government the Natural Resources Agency under the supervision of the Secretary of the Natural Resources Agency. Existing law, the California Cultural and Historical Endowment Act, establishes the California Cultural and Historical Endowment in the Natural Resources Agency. Among other things, the act authorizes the endowment to award grants and loans on a competitive basis to public agencies and nonprofit organizations to encourage development of California’s historical and cultural resources. Existing law establishes the Museum and Cultural Resources Program, under the administration of the endowment, to assist and enhance the services of California’s museums and of other groups and institutions that undertake cultural projects that are deeply rooted in and reflective of previously underserved communities.
This bill would appropriate $4,000,000 from the General Fund to the Natural Resources Agency to be distributed as a grant, during the 2019–2020 fiscal year, by the Secretary of the Natural Resources Agency to the Korean American National Museum located in the City of Los Angeles for the purpose of assisting construction of that museum. The bill would require, before the secretary distributes those funds, that the secretary confirm, in the manner as determined by the secretary, that the Korean American National Museum satisfies specified criteria.

Existing law establishes the California Conservation Corps and requires that young women and men participating in the corps program generally be engaged in projects that, among other things, preserve, maintain, and enhance environmentally important lands and waters.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to this provision.
