          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 11, 2016






          Bill  
        Summary:  SB 2616 requires that three of the 12 voting representatives on  
          the Coastal Commission (Commission) are individuals who reside  
          in or work with communities disproportionately burdened by, and  
          vulnerable to, high levels of pollution and environmental  
          justice issues. The bill also states that when acting on a  
          coastal development permit, the issuing agency, or the  
          Commission on appeal, may consider environmental justice.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  No fiscal impact.
