	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 79, Dutra.  Written reports:  preparation.
   (1) Existing law requires various written reports to be prepared
and submitted by state and local agencies to the Legislature or the
Governor.
   This bill would, until January 1, 2008, provide that a public
agency, as defined, may, but is not required to prepare or submit any
written report to the Legislature, the Governor, or any state
legislative or executive body unless any one of specified conditions
is met or the report is required to be prepared and submitted
pursuant to this bill.  This bill would provide that its provision
requiring that specified reports by the California Environmental
Protection Agency be prepared and submitted become operative only if
AB 2701 is enacted and becomes operative.
   This bill would provide that its provisions may not be construed
to require resubmission of a one-time report that is required by
statute if that report already has been submitted as required.
  (2) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately
as an urgency statute.
