CA Health & Safety Code Section 40457


The south coast district board shall convene a task force, that shall, on or before July 1, 2000, review, and assist in updating, the south coast district’s data base to ensure that any small business, as determined by the task force, that is located within the district and that may be affected by the adoption, amendment, or repeal of an air quality regulation by the district board, is included on the south coast district’s mailing list.


On and after July 1, 2000, the district shall mail, to each small business identified pursuant to subdivision (a) and to each local or regional authority within the district, notice of the time and place of any public workshop scheduled by the south coast district pursuant to Section 40440.7, to consider the adoption, amendment, or repeal of any district rule or regulation that may affect that small business or local or regional authority. The inadvertent failure to mail notice to any particular business or local or regional authority, as required by this subdivision, shall not invalidate any action taken by the district board regarding the adoption, amendment, or repeal of the district rule or regulation.


In addition to the office of public adviser and small business assistance required to be maintained pursuant to Section 40448, the south coast district board shall establish a small business advisory group comprised of district board members, industry trade association representatives, and small business owners. The advisory group shall provide guidance to the district board in implementing this section and shall provide recommendations for public outreach, business assistance, and rulemaking activities. The advisory group shall meet on a regular basis, as determined by the district board.


To the extent that the requirements of this section duplicate or overlap with the requirements established pursuant to Section 40448 or 40448.8, the district may combine or consolidate its activities in order to promote efficiency and nonduplication of effort.
