This bill will support the renaming of a portion of Chino Hills State Park, formerly as Brea -Olinda Wilderness Area in honor of late and former CA Assemblyman and Senator Ross Johnson. This bill supports the opportunity to expand the Chino Hills State Park by preserving open space and natural habitats for future generations. This bill requires local government agencies to post on its internet website a copy of any specified statement, report, or other document filed with that agency in paper format. This bill would require that the statement, report, or other document be made available for four years from the date of the election associated with the filing. This bill requires that all municipal animal shelters to microchip any dog or cat that is adopted or recovered by their owner. By requiring dogs and cats to be microchipped at the time of adoption or upon being returned to their owner, will help in reducing the population at animal shelters and save the taxpayers dollars that are currently being spent on euthanizing animals. April 8, 2019 Page Two 03-18-2019 SB 50 (Wiener) Planning and Zoning: Housing Development: Equitable Communities Incentives. (Letter of Opposition) 03-20-2019 AB 147 (Burke) Sales and Use Tax Collection (Letter of Support) 03-21-2019 Prado Regional Park — Letter to Colonel Barta CM2019-018 SB 50 would require City, County, or City and County to grant upon request an equitable communities incentive when a development proponent seeks and agrees to construct a residential development, as defined, that satisfies specified criteria. This proposed law would create additional uncertainties, including precisely how a job -rich area would be identified and why a jurisdiction that has an inclusionary housing ordinance that is by its nature designed to increase housing opportunities should be bound to more requirements than a jurisdiction that has not adopted such an ordinance. This proposed law also diminishes a jurisdiction's ability to ensure that a residential project does not create unintended negative impacts to surrounding areas, including impacts to public streets and light and glare. Internet -based sales are a major concern and how the law would be interpreted on the collection of local transaction and use taxes. Should this issue be left unaddressed, the state, local agencies and retailers would face nightmarish complexities attempting to track and audit compliance for hundreds of district taxes. Moreover, tens of millions of local revenue would remain uncollected. Request a joint meeting with the City of Chino to discuss the Prado Regional Park in San Bernardino County. The County has been working with the Los Angeles District office to replace the leasehold at Prado with easements funded with Proposition 70 park grant funds. This will allow the County to increase recreational amenities and fund improvements that are consistent with the Corps' mission of developing multi -use flood control projects.
