Senate Bill
No. 799

(Principal coauthor: Assembly Member Bauer-Kahan)

An act to add Section 5090.42 to the Public Resources Code, relating to parks and recreation.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 799, as introduced, Glazer. Off-highway vehicular recreation: Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area: Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area.
The Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Act of 2003 creates the Division of Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation within the Department of Parks and Recreation. The act gives the division certain duties and responsibilities, including the planning, acquisition, development, conservation, and restoration of lands in state vehicular recreation areas. Existing law creates the Off-Highway Vehicle Trust Fund to be the repository of certain moneys, including certain fees received by the department for the use of state vehicular recreation areas. Existing law requires the revenues in the fund to be available, upon appropriation, for grants and cooperative agreements, as specified, the support of the division, and the planning, acquisition, development, mitigation, construction, maintenance, administration, operation, restoration, and conservation of lands in state vehicular recreation areas and certain other areas.
This bill would require the Department of Parks and Recreation to preserve the portion of the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area known as the “Alameda-Tesla Expansion Area” for conservation purposes, as specified. The bill would make implementation of this provision contingent upon at least $9,000,000 being appropriated by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act or another statute, transferred, or donated to the Off-Highway Vehicle Trust Fund for its purposes.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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