LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2464, as introduced, Harper. California Coastal Act of 1976: Port of Newport Beach.
The California Coastal Act of 1976 establishes the California Coastal Commission and prescribes the membership, and functions, and duties of the commission with regard to the regulation and protection of coastal resources. The act specifies that after a port master plan for the port of Hueneme, Long Beach, Los Angeles, or San Diego Unified Port District located within the coastal zone, as provided, is certified by the commission, the permit authority of the commission is thereafter delegated to the appropriate port governing body, except as specified. Existing law requires certain cities and counties to incorporate the master plan in its local coastal program.
This bill would additionally apply this port master plan provision to the Port of Newport Beach located within the coastal zone, except as provided. By imposing duties on local officials, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 30700 of the Public Resources Code is amended to read:

30700.
 For purposes of this division, notwithstanding any other provisions of this division except as specifically stated in this chapter, this chapter shall govern those portions of the Ports of Hueneme, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Newport Beach, and San Diego Unified Port District located within the coastal zone, but excluding any wetland, estuary, or existing recreation area indicated in Part IV of the coastal plan.

SEC. 2.

 If the Commission on State Mandates determines that this act contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement to local agencies and school districts for those costs shall be made pursuant to Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code.
