    Summary: The California Emergency Services Act (CESA), among other things, authorizes the Governor to proclaim a state of emergency under certain circumstances and provides that a state of war emergency exists, with or without proclamation by the Governor, when specified conditions exist. During a state of war emergency or a state of emergency, the CESA authorizes the Governor to suspend any regulatory statute, or statute prescribing the procedure for the conduct of state business, or the orders, rules, or regulations of any state agency where the Governor determines and declares that strict compliance with any statute, order, rule, or regulation would in any way prevent, hinder, or delay the mitigation of the effects of the emergency. This bill would provide that the Governor may only suspend a statute or regulation during a state of emergency or state of war emergency, as described above, in connection with the specific conditions of emergency proclaimed by the Governor or state of war emergency, as applicable.

    AB 2960 (Committee on Judiciary)   Judiciary omnibus.    

    Current Text: Amended: 6/6/2022   html   pdf

    Last Amend: 6/6/2022

    Status: 6/30/2022-Read third time. Passed. Ordered to the Assembly. (Ayes 37. Noes 0.). In Assembly. Concurrence in Senate amendments pending.

    Location: 6/30/2022-A. CONCURRENCE

    Summary: The California Self-Service Storage Facility Act specifies remedies and procedures for self-service storage facility owners when occupants are delinquent in paying rent or other charges. Under current law, if rent or other charges due from an occupant remain unpaid for 14 consecutive days, an owner may terminate the right of the occupant to the use of the storage space at a self-service storage facility by sending a preliminary lien notice by certified mail to the occupant’s last known address, defined to mean the address provided by the occupant, as specified. Current law attaches the lien if the charges remain unpaid by a specified time and allows the owner to take specified actions. At that time, existing law requires the owner to send documentation related to the lien sale to the occupant’s last known address, as defined. Current law, until January 1, 2023, authorizes the notice and documentation to be sent by electronic mail subject to specified conditions and allows the owner to demonstrate actual delivery and receipt of documents by, among other methods, the occupant acknowledging receipt of the electronic transmission of the notice by executing an electronic signature or by transmitting the notice to the occupant through an application on a personal electronic device. This bill would remove the January 1, 2023, repeal date and would thereby extend indefinitely the authority to send the notice and documentation by electronic mail and the associated method of demonstrating actual delivery.

    (Aguiar-Curry D)   Local government financing: affordable housing and public infrastructure: voter approval.

    Status: 4/22/2021-Referred to Coms. on L. GOV. and APPR.


    Location: 4/22/2021-A. L. GOV.


    Summary: The California Constitution prohibits the ad valorem tax rate on real property from exceeding 1% of the full cash value of the property, subject to certain exceptions. This measure would create an additional exception to the 1% limit that would authorize a city, county, city and county, or special district to levy an ad valorem tax to service bonded indebtedness incurred to fund the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement of public infrastructure, affordable housing, or permanent supportive housing, or the acquisition or lease of real property for those purposes, if the proposition proposing that tax is approved by 55% of the voters of the city, county, or city and county, as applicable, and the proposition includes specified accountability requirements.

    Summary: Current law requires, when applying to a city or a county for an initial business license or business license renewal, a person who conducts a business operation that is a regulated industry, as defined, to demonstrate enrollment with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program by providing specified information, under penalty of perjury, on the application, including, among other things, the Standard Industrial Classification Code for the business, and an applicable identification number, as specified. Current law applies these provisions to all applications for initial business licenses and business license renewals submitted on and after January 1, 2020. This bill would expand the application of these provisions to instruments or permits equivalent to business licenses and to the renewals of those equivalent instruments or permits.

The bill would require the Office of Emergency Services to post all applicable proclamations and declarations on its website, and would specify that these provisions would not be enforceable until the proclamation or declaration is posted on the office’s website. The bill would also exclude housing that was issued a certificate of occupancy for residential use within the 3 months preceding a proclamation of a state of emergency or declaration of local emergency or within the duration of the proclamation or declaration.
