(a) The director shall, within 120 days of the operative date of this section, compile and maintain an inventory of state-owned real property that may be available for lease to providers of wireless telecommunications services for location of wireless telecommunications facilities. This inventory shall be the state’s sole inventory of state-owned real property available for this purpose. The term “state-owned real property,” as used in this section, excludes property owned or managed by the Department of Transportation, property owned or managed by the High-Speed Rail Authority, and property subject to Section 7901 of the Public Utilities Code.

(b) The director shall provide, in a cost-effective manner, upon payment of any applicable fee, a requesting party a copy of the inventory.

(c) On behalf of the state, the director may negotiate and enter into an agreement to lease department-managed and state-owned real property to any provider of wireless telecommunications services for location of its facilities. A lease for this purpose shall do all of the following:

(1) Provide for fair market value to be paid by the provider of wireless telecommunications service to the state to the extent permitted under existing state law.

(2) Designate a lease term that is acceptable to the director and the state agency that has control over the property. The duration of the initial lease term for any wireless facility may not exceed 10 years, and the lease may provide for a negotiated number of renewal terms, not to exceed five years for each term.

(3) Provide for the use of the wireless provider’s facilities located on the state-owned real property by any appropriate state agency if technically, legally, aesthetically, and economically feasible.

(4) Facilitate, to the greatest extent possible, agreements among providers of wireless telecommunications services for collocation of their facilities on state-owned real property.

(d) Nothing in this section alters any existing rights of telegraph or telephone corporations pursuant to Section 7901 of the Public Utilities Code.

(e) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any revenue collected from a lease entered into pursuant to this section to use property that was acquired with money from a fund other than the General Fund shall be deposited into the fund from which the money was obtained. Money received and deposited into a fund pursuant to this section shall be available upon appropriation by the Legislature, notwithstanding any other provision of law.

(f) Before making any state-owned real property that is part of the State Water Resources Development System, as described in Section 12931 of the Water Code, available for leasing under this section, the director shall consult with the Department of Water Resources as to whether the proposed location of a wireless telecommunication facility is technically, legally, environmentally, and economically feasible for wireless telecommunication purposes.
