SECTION 5096.320-5096.324



5096.320.  The Legislature hereby recognizes that public financial
resources are inadequate to meet all capital outlay needs of the
state park system and that the need for the acquisition, development,
restoration, rehabilitation, improvement, and protection of state
park system lands and facilities has increased to the point that
their continued well-being and the realization of their full public
benefit is in jeopardy.
   (a) The department shall annually submit to the Legislature and to
the secretary a report, consisting of a prioritized listing and
comparative evaluation of needs.
   (b) Projects approved by the secretary shall be forwarded by the
secretary to the Director of Finance for inclusion in the Budget
Bill.

determine the amount of funding that is necessary to complete all
deferred maintenance projects within each unit of the state park
system.
   (b) Except as provided in subdivision (c), no proceeds of the
bonds issued and sold pursuant to this chapter may be used to acquire
improved property for a unit of the state park system until 75
percent of the amount determined pursuant to subdivision (a) has been
appropriated, and allocated to complete deferred maintenance
projects within that unit from an appropriated funding source other
than the proceeds of the bonds issued and sold pursuant to this
chapter.
   (c) Real property may be acquired under this chapter for a unit of
the state park system that does not meet the requirements of
subdivision (b) only if the director finds, with respect to that
unit, that a unique opportunity is presented to acquire real property
that will constitute a significant improvement of the state park
system.
   (d) As used in this section, "deferred maintenance project" means
any project identified in the department's 2001 Deferred Maintenance
Assessment that rehabilitates or repairs a facility to a safe and
usable condition for the visiting public.



5096.323.  Fifty million dollars ($50,000,000) of the funds
allocated pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 5096.310 shall be

high priority for both the state parks system and for habitat
purposes, with priority given to projects that protect habitat for
rare, threatened, or endangered species pursuant to a natural
community conservation plan adopted pursuant to Chapter 10
(commencing with Section 2800) of Division 10 of the Fish and Game
Code, if the acquisition of the land is conducted in conjunction with
a natural community conservation plan approved by the Department of
Fish and Game prior to January 1, 1999, or if the acquisition is
approved by statute. Notwithstanding paragraph (2) of subdivision (a)
of Section 5096.310, those land acquisitions may be for either new
or existing units of the state park system.

restores cultural and historical immigration resources in northern
California.
   (b) The sum of two million six hundred thousand dollars
($2,600,000) to construct visitor centers in state parks, state
recreation areas, and state historic parks. The department shall give

   (c) Up to six hundred fifty thousand dollars ($650,000) for
playground equipment upgrades in state recreation areas.
   (d) The sum of two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($250,000) for

   (f) The sum of five million dollars ($5,000,000) for restoration,
study, and curation of paleontological, archaeological, and
historical resource site protection. Priority shall be given to
projects that combine curation of archaeological, paleontological,
and historical resources with education and basic and applied
research, and that emphasize specimens of California's extinct
prehistoric plants and animals.
   (g) The sum of two million seven hundred fifty thousand dollars
($2,750,000), two million five hundred thousand dollars ($2,500,000)
