Sec. § 93001


It is the intent of the Legislature, in enacting this title, to provide an alternative for ensuring railroad service if the Interstate Commerce Commission authorizes the abandonment or discontinuance of service on, or in the event of the bankruptcy or sale of, the current Eureka Southern Railroad line, the Northwestern Pacific Railroad line, or the California Western Railroad line.
It is the intent of the Legislature to provide a means to consider and, if justified, to pursue economic development opportunities and projects related to rail service along these railroad lines.
It is the further intent of the Legislature that this title not provide a justification for the commission to grant a petition for abandonment or discontinuance of service on any of those lines.
