   An act to amend Section 435 of the Military and Veterans Code,
relating to the state militia.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 1481, as introduced, Committee on Governmental Organization.
State militia: armories: leases and sales.
   Existing law establishes a statutory process for the
identification of surplus state property and for the use of proceeds
from their sale or lease for the payment of principal and interest on
state deficit recovery bonds and, thereafter, for the deposit of
those proceeds into the special fund for economic uncertainties.
Existing law authorizes the Director of General Services, with the
approval of the Adjutant General, to lease and sell real property
held for armory purposes, subject to legislative approval. Existing
law establishes the Armory Fund and requires that the proceeds from
the sale or lease of armories be deposited in the fund, for use, upon
appropriation by the Legislature, for specified purposes related to
armories.
   This bill would specify that proceeds from the sale or lease of
armories be deposited in the Armory Fund, notwithstanding the
statutory provisions that require proceeds from the sale or lease of
surplus state property be applied to retire state deficit recovery
bonds and, subsequently, be deposited in the Special Fund for
Economic Uncertainties.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: no.


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

  SECTION 1.  Section 435 of the Military and Veterans Code is
amended to read:
   435.  (a) The Director of General Services, with the approval of
the Adjutant General, may lease for not more than 99 years or sell
for fair market value upon terms and conditions and subject to any
reservations and exceptions as may be determined to be in the best
interests of the state any real property held for armory purposes. No
real property shall be sold or lease entered into pursuant to this
subdivision unless the Legislature, by statute, approves the sale or
lease of the property.
   (b) There is in the State Treasury the Armory Fund.  All
  Notwithstanding   subdivision (g) of Section
11011 of the Government Code, all  proceeds from the sale or
lease of armories shall be deposited in the fund. The money in the
fund is available, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for the
maintenance of existing armories, and for the acquisition or
construction of new or replacement armories, including, but not
limited to, the cost of design.
