                        FEBRUARY 9, 2010

Code, relating to state highways.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 993, Huff. State Highway Routes 19 and 66: relinquishment.
   Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has
full possession and control of all state highways. Existing law
describes the authorized routes in the state highway system and
establishes a process for adoption of a highway on an authorized
route by the California Transportation Commission. Existing law
authorizes the commission to relinquish certain state highway
segments to local agencies. Existing law described the authorized
routes of State Highway Routes 19 and 66 and authorizes certain
portions of those routes to be relinquished to the specified cities.
   This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish to the City
of Lakewood the portion of State Highway Route 19 within its city
limits or sphere of influence under certain conditions. The bill
would revise the description of State Highway Route 66 to indicate
portions of the route that have been relinquished or that have been
authorized to be relinquished, as specified. The bill would also
authorize the commission to relinquish to the City of Claremont that
portion of State Highway Route 66 within its city limits or sphere of
influence under specified conditions.
   The bill would incorporate additional changes in Section 319 of
the Streets and Highways Code proposed by SB 1318, to be operative if
SB 1318 and this bill become effective on or before January 1, 2011,
and this bill is enacted last.
