  ( Division 6 enacted by Stats. 1937, Ch. 368. )

PART 2. HARBORS AND PORTS MITIGATION PROJECTS [1720 - 1770]

  ( Part 2 added by Stats. 1993, Ch. 752, Sec. 2. )

CHAPTER 2. Port Congestion Relief and Port Mitigation Relief [1740 - 1770]
  ( Chapter 2 added by Stats. 2011, Ch. 427, Sec. 2. )

1740.
  

The Legislature hereby finds and declares all of the following:

(a) The Ports of Long Beach, Los Angeles, and Oakland operate in unique communities, environments, and markets that require infrastructure improvements and air pollution reduction measures tailored to the nature and degree of need in each port of each community.

(b) There is a need to mitigate the enormous burden imposed on the highway transportation system serving the Ports of Long Beach, Los Angeles, and Oakland by the overland movement of container cargo shipped to and from those ports.

(c) The operations at the ports, including the movement of locomotives, ships, and trucks that move cargo containers to and from the ports, cause air pollution that requires mitigation. This pollution contributes to the thousands of premature deaths and billions of dollars of health costs each year attributable to goods movement pollution in California.

(Added by Stats. 2011, Ch. 427, Sec. 2. (SB 739) Effective January 1, 2012.)

(a) Beginning January 1, 2012, the Port of Long Beach shall assess its infrastructure and air quality improvement needs.

(b) The port, when assessing infrastructure projects, shall consult with the Southern California Association of Governments on projects that improve the efficiency of cargo movement and reduce congestion impacts associated with the movement of cargo to and from the port through the southern California region. The port shall identify any project lists and provide any updated information for the projects on those lists. In the assessment, the port, at a minimum, shall identify the projects, funding source or possible funding source, and estimated timelines for completion.

(c) The port, when assessing air quality projects, shall consult with the South Coast Air Quality Management District on projects that reduce pollution associated with the movement of cargo to and from the port through the southern California region, including, but not limited to, projects that reduce pollution from trucks, cargo handling equipment, locomotives, and ships that move cargo within and to and from the port. The port shall identify any project lists, such as the Goods Movement Emission Reduction Plan or the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan, and provide updated information for the projects on those lists, where feasible. In the assessment, the port, at a minimum, shall identify the projects, funding source or possible funding source, and estimated timelines for implementation.

(d) On or before July 1, 2012, the port shall provide this assessment to the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources, Assembly Committee on Transportation, Senate Committee on Environmental Quality, and Senate Committee on Transportation and Housing. The report shall include, but not be limited to, an assessment of total costs, including updating cost estimates from previous reports or project lists, for the infrastructure and air quality improvements, as well as identifying funding for projects that may have a source of funding and identifying possible funding options for projects without a funding source.

(1) The requirement for submitting a report imposed under this subdivision is inoperative on January 1, 2016, pursuant to Section 10231.5 of the Government Code.

(2) A report to be submitted pursuant to this subdivision shall be submitted in compliance with Section 9795 of the Government Code.
