SB 11

  • Introduced in Senate Jan 20, 2010

Transportation: general obligation bonds: letters of no prejudice.


Existing law, the Clean Air and Transportation Improvement Act of 1990, authorizes the issuance of $1.99 billion in general obligation bonds for rail and transit purposes. Existing law provides for the California Transportation Commission to allocate bond funds to eligible projects. Existing law, the Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Bond Act of 2006, authorizes the issuance of $19.925 billion in general obligation bonds for various transportation purposes. Existing law designates an administrative agency that is responsible for programming these bond funds for the various categories of projects funded by the act. Existing law authorizes a regional or local agency that is a lead agency for a project to be funded under the act to apply to the administrative agency for a letter of no prejudice that permits the applicant to spend its own resources on the project and then to be reimbursed at a later date when bond funds become available, subject to various requirements and conditions. This bill would enact similar provisions applicable to local agencies relative to projects to be funded by the Clean Air and Transportation Improvement Act of 1990. The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. The Governor issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on January 8, 2010. This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared by the Governor by proclamation issued on January 8, 2010, pursuant to the California Constitution.
