CA SB 1006: California Strategic Growth Council to incorporate adaptation
California Senate Bill 1006, Chapter No. 632, chaptered by the Secretary of State, was enacted September 30, 2010. This bill amends existing law requiring the Strategic Growth Council to take certain actions with regard to coordinating programs to address climate change impacts and to award financial assistance to a city, county, or nonprofit organization for the preparation, planning, and implementation of urban greening projects and urban greening plans. The bill also requires the council to manage and award revolving loans or grants to specified local entities for these urban greening projects and plans.
Eligible projects for funding must provide multiple benefits including (but not limited to): a decrease in air and water pollution, a reduction in the consumption of natural resources and energy, an increase in the reliability of local water supplies, or an increased adaptability to climate change. A project cannot include a mitigation action that is required under existing law.
