Self Storage Association Bill List 

  • Monday, May 09, 2022 1:45 PM | Ross Hutchings (Administrator)

    (Committee on Judiciary)   Judiciary omnibus.

    Current Text: Amended: 4/7/2022   html   pdf

    Introduced: 3/8/2022

    Last Amend: 4/7/2022

    Status: 5/5/2022-Read second time. Ordered to Consent Calendar.

    Summary: The California Self-Service Storage Facility Act specifies remedies and procedures for self-service storage facility owners when occupants are delinquent in paying rent or other charges. Current law attaches a lien if the charges remain unpaid by a specified time and allows the owner to take specified actions. At that time, Current law requires the owner to send documentation related to the lien sale to the occupant’s last known address, as defined. Current law, until January 1, 2023, authorizes the notice and documentation to be sent by electronic mail subject to specified conditions and allows the owner to demonstrate actual delivery and receipt of documents by, among other methods, the occupant acknowledging receipt of the electronic transmission of the notice by executing an electronic signature or by transmitting the notice to the occupant through an application on a personal electronic device. This bill would remove the January 1, 2023, repeal date and would thereby extend indefinitely the authority to send the notice and documentation by electronic mail and the associated method of demonstrating actual delivery.

    (Hertzberg D)   Business licenses: stormwater discharge compliance.

    Current Text: Amended: 3/9/2022   html   pdf

    Introduced: 1/31/2022

    Last Amend: 3/9/2022

    Status: 4/28/2022-From committee: Do pass and re-refer to Com. on APPR. (Ayes 5. Noes 0.) (April 27). Re-referred to Com. on APPR.

    Summary: Current law requires, when applying to a city or a county for an initial business license or business license renewal, a person who conducts a business operation that is a regulated industry, as defined, to demonstrate enrollment with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program by providing specified information, under penalty of perjury, on the application, including, among other things, the Standard Industrial Classification Code for the business. Current law requires the city or county to determine, as specified, the applicability of any Standard Industrial Classification Code and, if applicable, to confirm that the information submitted to demonstrate enrollment corresponds to the business requesting the initial business license or business license renewal, and requires the city or county to transfer that information to the State Water Resources Control Board upon request. Current law requires the State Water Resources Control Board, on or before April 1, 2020, to post on its internet website a list of applicable Standard Industrial Classification Codes applicable to a specified permit, known as the Industrial General Permit, for the purpose of the determinations made by cities or counties, and requires the state board to update that list, as specified. This bill would prohibit a city or county from developing its own processes for determining whether a business is appropriately covered by the Industrial General Permit.

    (Archuleta D)   Price gouging: state of emergency.

    Current Text: Amended: 4/7/2022   html   pdf

    Introduced: 2/16/2022

    Last Amend: 4/7/2022

    Status: 4/26/2022-Read second time. Ordered to third reading.

    Summary: Would, for a state of emergency or local emergency that has been in effect for a year or more, make application of specified provisions contingent upon any proclamation of a state of emergency or declaration of local emergency including specific findings that the emergency has caused, or will continue to cause, abnormal disruptions of the housing market necessitating the application of these provisions to prevent excessive and unjustified increases in rental prices. The bill would require the Office of Emergency Services to post all applicable proclamations and declarations on its website, and would specify that these provisions would not be enforceable until the proclamation or declaration is posted on the office’s website. The bill would also exclude housing that was issued a certificate of occupancy for residential use within the 3 months preceding a proclamation of a state of emergency or declaration of local emergency or within the duration of the proclamation or declaration.

    Last Amend: 4/28/2022

    Status: 5/3/2022-Set for hearing May 9.

    Summary: would require the Employment Development Department (EDD) to conduct a feasibility study, as specified, that examines the idea of extending unemployment insurance benefits to self-employed individuals and reports on what actions are necessary to implement the expansion. The bill would require the EDD to complete and submit the feasibility study to the Legislature and the Senate Committee on Labor, Public Employment and Retirement by December 1, 2023.
