	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 2179, Monning. Tidelands and submerged lands: City of Santa
Cruz and City of Long Beach.
   Under existing law, the State Lands Commission has jurisdiction
over tidelands and submerged lands of the state. Existing law
authorizes grants to local entities of the right, title, and interest
of the State of California in and to certain tidelands and submerged
lands in trust for certain purposes.
   This bill would grant to the City of Santa Cruz and the City of
Long Beach, respectively, all the right, title, and interest of the
state in certain trust lands pursuant to an agreement of the
commission. The bill would require the cities to hold, operate, and
manage, in trust for the benefit of the statewide public, the
described trust lands in accordance with the common law public trust
doctrine and specified statutory provisions.
   This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to
the necessity of a special statute for the City of Santa Cruz and the
City of Long Beach.
