September/October Changes to California Highways

This month there were a lot of changes, primarily thanks to the end of the state legislative session, meaning a lot of bills reached their final status. See below for all the details.

Although this site is now updated bimonthly, that doesn’t mean road news isn’t happening. I do post articles of interest on the California Highways group on Facebook — I encourage you to follow that.

Processed backed up email changes, notes from my reading of the papers, as well as updates from misc.transport.road (which has become useless) and Facebook. This resulted in changes on the following routes, with credit as indicated [my research(1), contributions of information or leads (via direct mail or Usenet) from Michael Ballard(2), Eric Armourer(3), and Dominic Ielati(4)]:Route 70(4), Route 74(1), Route 76(3), Route 91(1), Route 154(1), I-80(1), I-215(1), I-680(1), I-710(1), I-805(1), I-880(1), San Diego CR S21(2).

Looked for updates for the legislative information page. Noted the passage of the following:

  • AB 84 (Hill) Vote by mail ballots.
    Existing law sets forth procedures for voting by mail and requires the local elections official to compare the signature on a vote by mail ballot received with the voter’s signature that appears on the affidavit of registration. Existing law requires the elections official to establish procedures to track and confirm the receipt of vote by mail ballots that are voted and to make that information available by means of online access using the county’s elections division Internet Web site, or, if it has no Internet Web site, then by toll-free telephone number that may be used to confirm the date the ballot was received. This bill would further require the local elections official to establish a free access system by which a vote by mail voter may find out whether his or her ballot was counted and, if not, the reason why it was not counted, thereby imposing a state-mandated local program.
    Vetoed by Governor, October 11, 2009

  • AB 101 (Anderson) Elections: vote by mail ballots.
    Existing law requires that a ballot contain all supplies necessary for the return of the ballot and that the identification envelope for a vote by mail ballot contain specified information. This bill would also require a notice that the identification envelope of a vote by mail ballot must be actually received by elections officials before the polls close on election day in order to be counted, except as specified.

    Vetoed by Governor. October 11, 2009

  • AB 798 (Nava) California Transportation Financing Authority: toll facilities.
    (1) Existing law generally provides for programming and allocation of transportation capital improvement funds pursuant to the state transportation improvement program process administered by the California Transportation Commission. Existing law authorizes the development of toll road projects under certain conditions. Existing law authorizes the commission and the Department of Transportation to operate and manage the Transportation Finance Bank to make loans for transportation projects. Existing law creates the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank to assist in the financing of various public infrastructure projects. Existing law authorizes the state to issue tax-exempt revenue anticipation notes backed by federal transportation appropriations. This bill would create the California Transportation Financing Authority with specified powers and duties relative to issuance of bonds to fund transportation projects to be backed, in whole or in part, by various revenue streams of transportation funds, and toll revenues under certain conditions, in order to increase the construction of new capacity or improvements for the state transportation system consistent with specified goals. The bill would set forth the requirements for a project sponsor to obtain bond funding from the authority, would allow the authority to approve the imposition and collection of tolls on a proposed project under certain conditions, and would require the authority to report to the California Transportation Commission annually beginning June 30, 2011. The bill would create the California Transportation Financing Authority Fund, which would be continuously appropriated for these purposes. The bill would enact other related provisions.

    (2) Existing law, until January 1, 2012, authorizes a regional transportation agency, in cooperation with the department, to apply to the commission to develop and operate high-occupancy toll lanes, with not more than 4 facilities to be approved under these provisions. Following public hearings by the commission, the commission is required to forward an eligible application and public comments to the Legislature for approval or rejection of the project, with approval to be achieved by the enactment of a statute. This bill, with respect to these 4 projects, would delete the requirement for the commission to forward the applications to the Legislature for approval or rejection.

    Chaptered October 11, 2009. Chapter 474

  • AB 882 (Fuller) Highways: victim memorial signs.
    Existing law requires the Department of Transportation to design, construct, place, and maintain, or cause to be designed, constructed, placed, and maintained, “Please Don’t Drink and Drive” signs on state highways in memory of accident victims killed in accidents involving another party who was convicted of drunk driving or various other alcohol-related offenses, as specified, if the sign is requested or consented to by an immediate family member of the accident victim and the requester pays a fee to cover the department’ s costs, as specified. This bill would expand these provisions to also include “Please Drive Safely” signs in memory of victims killed in vehicular accidents unrelated to drugs or alcohol. The bill would limit to 20 the number of signs that may be placed each calendar year under these new provisions.
    Vetoed by Governor. October 11, 2009

  • AB 1143 (Ma) Marriage: name.
    Existing law allows one or both parties to a marriage to change the middle or last name by which that party wishes to be known after solemnization of the marriage. Existing law also requires the adoption of a new name, or the choice not to adopt a new name, by means of a marriage license application to be made only at the time the license is issued, as provided. This bill would allow one or both parties to change both the middle and last names by which that party wishes to be known after solemnization of the marriage. This bill would also allow for an amendment to be issued to correct a clerical error in the new name fields on the marriage license, as provided.
    Chaptered October 11, 2009. Chapter 512.

  • AB 1175 (Torlakson) Toll facilities.
    (mostly uninteresting, except) (2) This bill would add seismic safety improvement projects on the Antioch and Dumbarton Bridges to the toll bridge seismic safety program. The bill would provide that surplus cost overrun revenues to be shared between the state and the Bay Area Toll Authority be redirected to the authority for the Antioch and Dumbarton seismic safety projects, and would appropriate those funds for that purpose. The bill would require the authority to provide all other funds necessary to complete those seismic safety projects. The bill would provide for the authority to increase tolls on all Bay Area state-owned toll bridges in that regard. The bill would continuously appropriate to the department all amounts paid to the department by the authority for various purposes relative to the toll bridges. The bill would also authorize the authority to make contributions to the commission in furtherance of the exercise of the authority’s powers, as specified.

    (5) Existing law provided for submission of 2 regional measures to the voters of 7 Bay Area counties in 1988 and 2004 relative to respective $1 increases in bridge auto tolls on the Bay Area state-owned toll bridges, subject to approval by a majority of the voters. This bill would generally authorize the Bay Area Toll Authority to submit a regional measure containing a toll increase to the voters of those counties for approval along with a statement of the projects and programs to be undertaken with the increased toll revenues. The bill would require the projects and programs to consist of infrastructure projects, the acquisition of transit vehicles, transit operating assistance, and other improvement projects intended to reduce congestion and improve travel options in the bridge and associated transportation corridors. The bill would require the boards of supervisors of these counties to call a special election, which may be consolidated with a general or primary election, upon the request of the authority, and would require the authority to reimburse the counties from bridge toll revenues for the incremental cost of submitting the regional measure to the voters.

    (6) Existing law specifies the basic uniform toll rate for various classes of vehicles for all of the Bay Area state-owned toll bridges, but authorizes the authority to increase tolls as may be necessary to meet bond obligations. This bill, notwithstanding these provisions, would authorize the authority to vary the toll structure on each bridge and to provide discounts for vehicles classified by the authority as high-occupancy vehicles and for vehicles paying tolls via electronic toll collection.

    (7) Existing law authorizes the Bay Area Toll Authority to reduce the amount of the seismic toll surcharge to encourage electronic toll payment. This bill would delete this provision.

    (8) This bill would also require the Bay Area Toll Authority to contract with a nationally recognized independent entity with expertise in privacy issues associated with the electronic transmission and storage of data to conduct a review and an analysis of the privacy issues associated with the authority’s electronic toll payment collection system, and to report to the Legislature in that regard by January 31, 2011. The bill would thereby impose a state-mandated local program.

  • AB 1381 (John A. Perez) High-occupancy toll lanes.
    Existing law authorizes a regional transportation agency, in cooperation with the Department of Transportation, to apply to the California Transportation Commission to develop and operate high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, including administration and operation of a value-pricing program and exclusive or preferential lane facilities for public transit. Existing law specifically authorizes a value-pricing and transit development demonstration program involving HOT lanes to be conducted, administered, developed, and operated on Route 10 and Route 110 in Los Angeles County by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) under certain conditions. This bill would require the LACMTA program to be implemented with the active participation of the Department of the California Highway Patrol. The bill would require LACMTA, with the consent of the department, to establish appropriate performance measures for the purpose of ensuring optimal use of the HOT lanes without adversely affecting other traffic on the state highway system. The bill would also state that the authorization for this project shall not prevent the construction of competing facilities, and that LACMTA is not entitled to compensation for the adverse effects on toll revenue due to those facilities.
    Chaptered October 11, 2009. Chapter 289

  • AB 1386 (Hayashi) State highways.
    Existing law authorizes a city or county in which a planned transportation facility was to be located on Route 238 in Alameda County to develop and file with the California Transportation Commission a local alternative transportation improvement program that addresses transportation problems and opportunities, and provides for the use of revenues from the sales of excess properties acquired for the planned state facility in order to fund the local alternative transportation improvement program, but limits the use of revenues from excess property sales to state highway purposes. Existing law provides that the commission may not approve a local alternative transportation improvement program under these provisions after July 1, 2010. Similar provisions apply to Route 84 in the Cities of Fremont and Union City, except that the use of revenues from excess property sales in that corridor are limited to state highway purposes or projects in the local voter-approved transportation sales tax measure. This bill would modify the restriction limiting use of revenues from excess property sales to state highway purposes applicable to Route 238 by authorizing those revenues to be used for any highway purpose. This bill would require revenues from excess property sales for Route 238 and Route 84 to be deposited into separate accounts in the Special Deposit Fund, a continuously appropriated fund, to be available for expenditure by local agencies for purposes of an approved local alternative transportation improvement program for the applicable corridor route. The bill would thereby make an appropriation. This bill would also authorize local agencies to advance projects in the local alternative transportation improvement program with local funds, to be repaid when revenues from excess property sales become available, as specified.

    Existing law requires a local alternative transportation improvement program for Route 238 to provide, among other things, relocation assistance and replacement housing units for persons displaced as a result of the sale of excess properties to fund the local alternative transportation improvement program. This bill would make these provisions inoperative, and would enact new provisions to become operative, on the date on which the superior court issues the final approval order for the settlement agreement related to the disposition of excess properties acquired for the Route 238 Hayward Bypass Project signed by the department, the City of Hayward, and representatives for members of the class of residents, or on January 1, 2010, whichever comes later. The new provisions would, among other things, require monetary assistance to eligible tenant households and provision of 237 additional new low-income housing units. The new provisions would also require the department to offer the direct sale of eligible excess single-family residences on an as-is, fair market value basis, to current tenants meeting specified requirements and would enact other related provisions in that regard. The bill would authorize proceeds from the sale of excess properties to be used for the cost of selling the properties and various administrative, commercial, or legal costs, including program administration costs to develop and administer the home purchase program and an administrative hearing process for tenants. This bill would require the California Transportation Commission to adopt guidelines in that regard.

    Existing law provides for state highways to be constructed, as determined by the California Transportation Commission, on routes authorized by law. Existing law provides for relinquishment by the commission of state highways to local agencies under certain conditions. This bill would authorize the commission to relinquish portions of Route 92, Route 185, and Route 238 in the City of Hayward to that city subject to various conditions.

  • AB 1403 (Eng) Local transportation funds: planning and programming.
    Existing law, pursuant to the Mills-Alquist-Deddeh Act, also known as the Transportation Development Act, provides for allocation by the transportation planning agency of 1/4% of the sales tax in each county deposited in the local transportation fund to various transportation purposes, including transportation planning and programming, public transit, and, in some cases, local streets and roads. Up to 3% of annual revenues may be allocated to the transportation planning agency, if it is statutorily created, for transportation planning and programming purposes. In the multicounty region that is within the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), which is also known as the multicounty designated transportation planning agency, specified percentages of annual revenues may be allocated to the statutorily created county transportation commissions in 5 individual counties, and up to ¾ of 1% of annual revenues, but not more than $1,000,000, may be allocated by the commissions in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties, proportionately, to SCAG for its transportation planning and programming functions. This bill would delete the $1,000,000 limitation on allocations of these funds by the 4 county transportation commissions to SCAG.

  • AB 1464 (Smyth) Transportation: California Bicycle Routes of National, State or Regional Significance Act.
    This bill would enact the California Bicycle Routes of National, State or Regional Significance Act, which would authorize the department to establish a process for identifying and promoting bicycle routes of national, state, or regional significance, as specified. The bill would authorize the department to form an advisory committee to help implement the process for identifying and promoting these bicycle routes. The bill would authorize the department to establish a process for organizations, including, but not limited to, local bicycle organizations, private entities, or local or state government entities to nominate a route for inclusion in the system of bicycle routes of national, state, or regional significance. The bill would authorize the department to install bicycle route signs identifying these bicycle routes, as specified.

This bill would also provide a recorder shall be deemed to be in compliance if he or she uses due diligence to truncate social security numbers in documents recorded, as provided . Existing law requires an abstract of judgment ordering a party to pay spousal, child, or family support to contain the social security number of the party who is ordered to pay.

    Existing law requires the Department of Transportation to enter into an agreement prior to any closure of a city street or county highway due to construction of a freeway with a city council or board of supervisors having jurisdiction. Existing law provides an exception to those provisions for a freeway segment within the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, if specified requirements have been met, including that an agreement with one or more counties and cities is not possible because an impasse has existed for 10 or more years after an initial route was adopted. This bill would limit this exception to construction of a segment of a freeway that consists solely of a subsurface transportation facility, as specified. The bill would also require, as a condition for the exception to apply, that an agreement with one or more counties and cities is not possible because an impasse has existed for 20 or more years after an initial route was adopted.

  • SB 716 (Wolk) Local transportation funds.
    Existing law requires that ¼% of the local sales and use tax be transferred to the local transportation fund of the county for allocation, as directed by the transportation planning agency, to various transportation purposes. Existing law specifies the allowable uses for local transportation funds, and generally requires these funds to be used for transit purposes in urban counties, while in counties with a population under 500,000 as of the 1970 census and certain other counties, these funds may also be used for local streets and roads, if the transportation planning agency finds that there are no unmet transit needs or no unmet transit needs that are reasonable to meet, and for other specified purposes.

    This bill, for counties that had a population of less than 500,000 as of the 1970 decennial census, but that have a population of 500,000 or more as of the 2000 decennial census or at a subsequent census, would require the local transportation funds apportioned to the urbanized areas of those counties to generally be allocated for public transit purposes and not for street and road purposes, except that cities in those counties with a population of 100,000 or fewer would be exempt from this requ irement. Local transportation funds apportioned to the nonurbanized areas in those counties would remain available for allocation to street and road purposes and for other specified purposes. The bill would delay, until July 1, 2014, the application of these new provisions in counties where they apply.

    The bill exempt Ventura County from these provisions and instead would authorize the Ventura County Transportation Commission to submit, by December 31, 2011, a report to the Legislature analyzing options for organizing public mass transportation services in the county and for expenditure of revenues in the local transportation fund, along with a recommended legislative proposal. If a legislative proposal is not enacted by the end of the 2011-12 Regular Session of the Legislature, local transportation funds in Ventura County would be available solely for transit purposes beginning July 1, 2014.

    The bill, in counties and areas of counties where local transportation funds may be allocated to local streets and roads, would also authorize allocation of those funds for specified farmworker vanpool purposes upon a finding by the transportation planning agency that there are no unmet transit needs or no unmet transit needs that are reasonable to meet and after all of the capital and operating funds necessary to meet unmet transit needs that are reasonable to meet are allocated. The bill would make other related changes .
