                        FEBRUARY 27, 2009

   An act  to amend Section 67951 of the Government Code,
  relating to transportation.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 1204, as amended, Huber. El Dorado County Transportation
Commission.
   Existing law requires the Director of Transportation to designate
a transportation planning agency in each county for the purpose of
allocating funds in the local transportation fund derived from1/4 of
1% of the sales tax, pursuant to the Mills-Alquist-Deddeh Act, also
known as the Transportation Development Act, and for other related
transportation purposes. Existing law creates the El Dorado County
Transportation Planning Agency, also known as the El Dorado County
Transportation Commission, as the transportation planning agency in
the portion of El Dorado County outside of the Tahoe Basin. Existing
law provides that the agency is composed of 6 members, with 3 members
appointed by the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors and 3 members
appointed by the city council of the City of Placerville.
   This bill would  expand the membership of the agency to 9
members, with the 3 additional members to be appointed by the board
of the El Dorado Community Services District. Because the bill would
impose additional duties on local agencies, it would thereby impose a
state-mandated local program   state the intent of the
Legislature that the membership of the El Dorado County
Transportation Commission be comprised of individuals equally
balanced from all regions within El Dorado County outside of the
Tahoe Basin  . 
   The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.  
   This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates
determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state,
reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these
statutory provisions. 
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee:  yes
  no  . State-mandated local program:  yes
  no  .
