	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 1217, Daly. Orange County Fire Authority.
   Existing law authorizes 2 or more public agencies, by agreement,
to form a joint powers authority to exercise any power common to the
contracting parties, as specified. Existing law authorizes the
agreement to set forth the manner by which the joint powers authority
will be governed. Existing law authorizes the board of supervisors
of any county to contract with any local agency within the county or
with the state for services relating to the prevention and
suppression of fires.
   This bill would prohibit the composition of the Board of Directors
of the Orange County Fire Authority from including alternate
members.
   This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to
the necessity of a special statute for the Orange County Fire
Authority.


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

  SECTION 1.  Section 6539 is added to the Government Code, to read:
   6539.  Notwithstanding any other law, the composition of the Board
of Directors of the Orange County Fire Authority shall not include
alternate members.
  SEC. 2.  The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is
necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the
meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution
because of the challenges faced as a result of the current governance
structure of the Orange County Fire Authority.
