LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1450, as amended, Gabriel. Security planning: major Public safety: large-scale sporting and entertainment events.
The California Emergency Services Act, among other things, establishes the Office of Emergency Services within the office of the Governor, under the charge of a Director of Emergency Services appointed by the Governor. The act and other existing laws set forth the duties and authority of the office and the director, with respect to specified emergency preparedness, mitigation, and response activities within the state.
This bill would require the office to collaborate with cities hosting large-scale sporting and associated events, and to prepare for the planning, resourcing, management, and delivery of safety and security of those events. The bill would require the office to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the host cities and with other necessary parties to enhance safety and security, and would require the memorandum of understanding to comply with the state’s Master Mutual Aid Agreement.
This bill would require the office to prepare for the planning, resourcing, management, and delivery of safety and security at the potential 2026 FIFA World Cup hosting sites in the City of Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area. The bill would require the office, no later than one year from the date the final selection of host cities is made, to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the cities hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup games, the chosen host committees, and with other necessary parties to implement those safety and security activities. The bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2027.
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.
