2021 – Assembly Bill 762 (Lee, Alex), Hazardous Emissions and Substances on Private and Charter School Sites (Dead)
Would have expanded existing school site acquisition and environmental certification requirements under the California Education Code for public and State-funded schools to include private and charter schools. The requirements include evaluation of the schoolsite for hazardous substances, waste, and air emissions, among other provisions. The bill would have also extended the requirements for the purchase of a schoolsite or the construction of a school under the California Environmental Quality Act to include charter and private schools. Held on suspense in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
