	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 635, Bates.  Highways:  relinquishment:  State Highway Routes 1
and 126.
   Existing law requires the California Transportation Commission to
relinquish to any city or county any portion of any state highway
within the city or county that has been deleted from the state
highway system by legislative enactment.  These relinquishments
become effective upon the first day of the next calendar or fiscal
year, whichever first occurs after the effective date of the
legislative enactment.
   This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City
of Dana Point a specified portion of State Highway Route 1 that is
located within the city limits of that city upon terms and conditions
the commission finds to be in the best interests of the state, if
the commission and the city enter into an agreement providing for
that relinquishment.
   The bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City
of Santa Clarita the portion of State Highway Route 126 that is
between State Highway Route 5 and State Highway Route 14, pursuant to
the terms of a cooperative agreement between the City of Santa
Clarita and the Department of Transportation.
