CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1189


Introduced by Assembly Member Bloom

February 18, 2021


An act to add and repeal Section 114.7 of the Streets and Highways Code, relating to transportation.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1189, as introduced, Bloom. Transportation: indirect cost recovery: wildlife crossing projects.
Existing law vests the Department of Transportation with possession and control of the state highway system and associated property. Existing law provides for cooperative agreements between the department and public entities for the performance of work by the department and those entities and apportionment of associated expenses.
This bill would, on and before June 30, 2024, prohibit the department from charging for administration indirect cost recovery, as outlined in the department’s Indirect Cost Recovery Proposal, for any wildlife crossing project that receives private funding for more than 50% of the project cost, and would require the department to charge these projects for functional overhead. The bill would require the department to report, on or before July 1, 2024, to the Legislature on the amount of private funding invested in wildlife crossing projects for the 2020–21, 2021–22, 2022–23, and 2023–24 fiscal years.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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