Sacramento Regional Transit District: board of directors: voting procedures.

Abstract

Existing law authorizes the formation of the Sacramento Regional Transit District with various powers and duties with respect to transportation planning, programming, construction, and operations. Existing law vests the government of the district in a board of directors. Existing law prescribes a weighted voting procedure, based on a total of 100 votes, for board action. Existing law defines a quorum for the transaction of business at a noticed meeting as the presence of members eligible to cast a majority of the 100 votes. Existing law requires an affirmative vote of members casting a majority of the 100 votes for official acts of the board, as specified. This bill would instead establish that each board member has one vote, that a majority of the members of the board constitutes a quorum, and that all official acts of the board require the affirmative vote of a majority of all the members of the board. The bill would require the board to post the new voting procedure on the district's internet website. The bill would also make conforming changes. By imposing new duties on the Sacramento Regional Transit District, the bill would create 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, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
