   SB 170, as amended, Pavley.  South Coast Air Quality
Management District:   Air pollution control district:

   Existing law  creates the South Coast Air Quality
Management District with jurisdiction over air quality within the
South Coast Air Basin, including in the Counties of Los Angeles,
Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino   authorizes local
and regional districts with jurisdiction over the control of air
pollution from all sources, other than emissions from motor vehicles
 .
   This bill would authorize the  south coast district
  districts  to sponsor, coordinate, and promote
projects that will lead to the prevention, mitigation, or cure of the
adverse effects of air pollution, including the adverse health
effects of air pollution. The bill would authorize  the south
coast district   a district  to  determine
  negotiate  what share, if any, of the
intellectual property, or benefits resulting from intellectual
property, developed from the use of district funds, including funds
discharged as grants, will accrue to  the south coast
  that  district.  The bill would require
revenues generated to be deposited into a special account and used
for specified purposes. If the state or a subdivision of the state
purchases or licenses a good, service, or process for which a
district accrues benefit resulting from the intellectual property
interest, the bill would require the district, upon the request of
the Department of General Services, to provide reimbursement to the
General Fund for the amount of the benefit accrued.
