California Government Code

Sec. § 67848


(a)

The board is encouraged to look first to contracting with, and providing funding to, the California Conservation Corps for the purpose of carrying out conservation and environmental projects, including, but not limited to, the cleanup of low hazardous toxic materials.

(b)

It is the intent of the Legislature that the California Conservation Corps be considered a resource for the board for carrying out conservation and environmental projects, including, but not limited to, the cleanup of low hazardous toxic materials, because of the training and safety requirements associated with those activities and the established, cost-effective program and infrastructure that the corps can provide through its own resources, or in partnership with local corps or public or private entities, for the hiring, training, and personal development of those young adults in local communities that carry out meaningful conservation and environmental projects.

(c)

Nothing in this section shall be construed to preclude the board from utilizing the resources of local residents to the greatest extent possible in carrying out conservation and environmental projects.
