California Government Code
The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(a) It is in the best interest of the state to facilitate the transfer and reuse of property and infrastructure comprising military bases designated for closure by the federal government in the most expeditious manner.
(b) The disruption caused by the closure of any military base on the civilian economy and the people of the surrounding communities should be minimized.
(c) The state should facilitate the reuse and development of the military base in ways that enhance the economy and quality of life of the communities surrounding the base.
(d) Any reuse and development of the military base should to the maximum extent possible maintain and protect the unique environmental resources of the state.
(e) The objectives set forth above are most likely to be achieved if an effective governmental structure exists to plan for, finance, and carry out the transfer and reuse of the base in a cooperative, coordinated, balanced, and decisive manner.
