Default Final Action by Governor on Pending Bills for 2010

SIGNED INTO LAW:

AB 1254 (T. Berryhill, R-Modesto) – Purpose: Amend Sections of the Fish and Game Code
AB 1254 covers three areas. First, AB 1254 will serve as a cost savings measure allowing the Fish and Game Commission to set meeting locations based on funding availability. The Commission will hold ten regular meetings per year with no more than three of those meetings to be held in Sacramento. Second, AB 1254 will allow the Department of Fish and Game set up special hunt drawings for Hunter Education Program instructors to serve as an incentive for folks to volunteer to serve as an instructor. And, third, AB 1254 provides for the Department of Fish and Game, following an audit, to temporarily suspend or seek reimbursement of fish and game fine monies from counties that are not using the funds for fish and wildlife conservation as required by law.

AB 1995 (Gaines, R-Roseville) – Purpose: Establish a Department of Fish and Game Automated License Data System
This bill will establish an automated license data system that will allow hunters and anglers to purchase licenses at kiosks located at licensed agent stores throughout the state. The system will be operated under the authority of the Department of Fish and Game. Similar systems are now operated successfully in many other states.

AB 2324 (Perez, D-Los Angeles) – Purpose: Possession of Firearms in Public Transit Facilities/Systems
This bill provides state regulations for transportation of firearms in public transit facilities, systems and vehicles consistent with federal regulations for transporting firearms in airport facilities. Public transit facility means any land, building, or equipment, or any interest therein, including any station on a public transportation route, to which access is controlled in a manner consistent with the public transit authority’s security plan, whether or not the operation thereof produces revenue, that has as its primary purpose the operation of a public transit system or the providing of services to the passengers of a public transit system. A public transit system includes the vehicles used in the system, including, but not limited to, motor vehicles, streetcars, trackless trolleys, buses, light rail systems, rapid transit systems, subways, trains, or jitneys, that transport members of the public for hire. Among others, this bill exempts a duly appointed peace officer, as defined under existing law and a retired peace officer with authorization to carry concealed weapons as described under existing law. This bill also permits a person to carry a handgun in a transit facility if he or she is a person who is exempt from the prohibition against carrying a handgun under existing law, as specified, and is carrying the handgun in accordance with that exemption.

SB 1058 (Harmon, R-Orange) – Purpose: Department of Fish and Game Hunting License Fee Accountability
SB 1058 is designed to provide more transparency and accountability in the handling of hunting license fees collected and spent by the Department of Fish and Game. AB 1058 will prevent the Department of Fish and Game from using big game tag and upland bird stamp funds for non-game programs as is currently allowed.

Senator Harmon stated that “The Governor’s signature on Senate Bill 1058 means wildlife and habitat restoration will once again be the priority of hunting tag and stamp fees. That is what those fees are supposed to be used for – not bureaucratic paperwork,” said Harman. “I am very pleased my bill has become law. SB 1058 furthers two causes that I am passionate about: increased transparency in government spending and conservation of the environment.”

SB 1080 & SB 1115 – Purpose: Renumber and Reorganize Existing Penal Code Sections Related to Firearms
These two companion bills are designed to renumber the Penal Code sections dealing with firearms and to organize the firearms related sections into one area of the code. The language of the firearms sections will not be changed in any way – they will only be renumbered and reorganized in the Penal Code. The new code sections will take effect January 1, 2012.

SB 1179 (Hollingsworth, R-Murietta) Purpose: Establish Two Free Hunting Days for New Hunters
This bill will establish two free hunting days for new hunters – a program similar to the dedicated two free fishing days currently provided for new anglers. To qualify hunters must be 18 or older and must comply with Department of Fish and Game hunter education training online. Senator Hollingsworth stated that “This new law provides a low-cost opportunity for those who are interested in hunting to be able to explore the sport with another experienced individual. With passage of this bill, Californians will be able to join licensed hunters in this time-honored activity, a sport and a pastime with deep roots in our nation’s culture. Responsible, licensed hunters provide tremendous means for wildlife conservation in California. Hunters are correctly said to be the original conservationists. Therefore, bringing more hunters into the fold isn’t just good for the continuance of the sport, it’s essential for conserving wildlife.”

SB 1345 (Calderon, D-Montebello) – Purpose Exemption for Importation of Kangaroo Parts
SB 1345 extends the exception for importation of kangaroo parts into California indefinitely.

VETOED:


AB 979 (T. Berryhill, R-Modesto) – Purpose: Prohibit Local Regulation of Hunting and Fishing
AB 979 sought to prevent local jurisdictions from enacting hunting and fishing ordinances in city and county areas. It would have placed the primary authority to regulate hunting and fishing activities with the state Fish and Game Commission.

AB 1956 (Monning, D-Santa Cruz) – Purpose: Regulate California Condor Feeding
This bill would have allowed California condor preservation organizations that participate in a memorandum of understanding with the Department of Fish and Game to receive dead animals (such as cattle) to provide food for free-ranging California condors. AB 1956 would have authorized the Secretary of the Department of Food and Agriculture to issue a special permit to condor preservation organizations to receive and transport dead animals. There was no provision in the bill to ensure that the animal carcasses were free of lead contamination.

CRPA THANKS YOU FOR SPEAKING OUT DURING THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION AND HELPING TO PRESERVE YOUR RIGHTS!

Does the bolded passage refer to CCW holders?
