   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  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   instead
provide for the agency to be comprised of 4 members appointed by the
board of supervisors and 2 members appointed by each incorporated
city in the portion of El Dorado County outside of the Tahoe Basin.
However, if there is only one incorporated city, that city would
appoint 3 members. Because the bill would impose additional duties on
local agencies, it would thereby impose a state-mandated local
program  . 
   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:  no
  yes  . State-mandated local program:  no
  yes  .


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

   SECTION 1.    Section 67951 of the  
Government Code   is amended to read: 
   67951.  The agency shall be composed of  three 
 four  members appointed by the county board of supervisors
and  three   two  members appointed by the
city council of  the City of Placerville   each
incorporated city in that portion of the county described in Section
67950, unless there is only one   incorporated city, in
which   case that city shall have three appointed members
 . The appointing authority, for each regular member it
appoints, may appoint an alternate member to serve in place of the
regular member when the regular member is absent or disqualified from
participating in a meeting of the agency.
   SEC. 2.    If the Commission on State Mandates
determines that this act contains costs mandated by the state,
reimbursement to local agencies and school districts for those costs
shall be made pursuant to Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of
Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code.  
  SECTION 1.   It is 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.
