Introduced by Senator McGuire

(Principal coauthor: Assembly Member Wood)

January 26, 2015


An act to amend Section 23 of the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation, and Conservation District Act (Chapter 1283 of the Statutes of 1970), relating to tide and submerged lands.

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL’S DIGEST

SB 141, as introduced, McGuire. Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation, and Conservation District Act: land use.

Existing law, the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation, and Conservation District Act regulates the use of specified tide and submerged lands within Humboldt Bay and provides for the fill, improvement, and reclamation of those tidelands, as prescribed. The act further requires that all grants, franchises, leases, permits, rights or privileges be made in accordance with those rules and regulations as the board of commissioners of the district prescribes by resolution, and prohibits irrevocable grants of fee title from being granted or issued.

This bill would eliminate that provision prohibiting irrevocable grants of fee title, thereby authorizing these grants subject to the other provisions of the act.

Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no. State-mandated local program: no.

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
