Title
CONSIDER RESOLUTION 21-011 SUPPORTING AB 78 (O'DONNELL) EXPANDING THE TERRITORY OF THE SAN GABRIEL AND LOWER LOS ANGELES RIVERS AND MOUNTAINS CONSERVANCY TO INCLUDE THE DOMINGUEZ CHANNEL WATERSHED AND SANTA CATALINA ISLAND (CITY COUNCIL)

It was reintroduced in 2020 as AB 2103 but it was held in the Senate Appropriations Committee's Suspense File. Assembly Member O'Donnell, the sponsor of the bill, has reintroduced it in the new session as AB 78.
