          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 27, 2015


          Bill  
          Summary:  AB 530 would establish the Lower Los Angeles River  
          Working Group which would be responsible for developing a  
          revitalization plan for the Lower Los Angeles River and the  
          communities through which it passes by March 1, 2017.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  
           One-time costs estimated between $40,000 and $80,000 to the  
            General Fund or the Environmental License Plate Fund (special)  
            for the Rivers and Mountains Conservancy to staff the LA River  
            Working Group.

           Cost pressures, likely in the hundreds of millions of dollars  
            and possibly over a billion dollars, to the General Fund and  
            various special funds, to implement the plan.
