A spot bill.

Existing law authorizes the California Energy Commission to designate a transmission corridor zone on its own motion or by application of a person who plans to construct a high‑voltage electrical transmission line within the state. Under existing law, designating a transmission corridor zone serves to identify a feasible corridor where future high-voltage electrical transmission lines can be built that are consistent with the state’s needs and objectives as set forth in the strategic plan for the state’s electric transmission grid adopted by the CEC.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to that provision.

Committee Location: Introduced February 15; awaiting committee assignment as of March 20.
