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. This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City of Yorba Linda a specified portion of State Highway Route 90, upon terms and conditions the commission finds to be in the best interests of the state. The relinquishment would become effective immediately following the recordation by the county recorder of the relinquishment resolution containing the commission's approval. The portion of State Highway Route 90 relinquished would cease to be a state highway on the effective date of the relinquishment. This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute. THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: SECTION 1.
