SB 137 (Allen) Transit districts: ordinances

Position:Watch
Status:Assembly Transportation Committee
Summary:
Existing law imposes various requirements on transit districts relating to the passage of ordinances.
 
This bill would, in addition to any other requirements, require a transit district to publish an ordinance on its Internet Web site, or the otherwise appropriate Internet Web site, within 15 days after the ordinance’s passage and in a manner that is accessible and easily navigable.  By requiring a local agency to perform an additional duty, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
 
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
 
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Comments:

Mandate Exception:  No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because a local agency or school district has the authority to levy service charges, fees, or assessments sufficient to pay for the program or level of service mandated by this act, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code.
