TITLE
Recommendation to respectfully request the City Council approve the 2020 State Legislative Agenda as recommended by the State Legislation Committee.

DISCUSSION
Each year the City Council adopts a State Legislative Agenda, which outlines the City’s State Legislative priorities for the coming year. This document provides policy direction to staff on State legislative issues, and allows the City to support, oppose or work with State elected officials on advancing priorities adopted by the City Council.

At the State Legislation Committee (Committee) meeting on December 17, 2019, the Committee voted to forward staff’s recommended changes for the 2020 State Legislative Agenda to the City Council for consideration and adoption. The Committee did not have any changes to the 2020 State Legislative Agenda.

Proposed Legislative Agenda Changes
ABOUT LONG BEACH
The Committee proposes to revise the section on the Port of Long Beach:
Located at the Port, Long Beach Container Terminal at Middle Harbor will be the world’s first zero emissions terminal operation. The Port is investing over $4 billion to improve its infrastructure and create additional jobs through projects like the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement and Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility.

The revised paragraph would state:
The Port of Long Beach is undertaking multiple programs to enhance competitiveness and environmental sustainability. Over the next 10 years, the Port will invest more than $2 billion in capital improvements, including $1 billion in projects that will expand on-dock rail use and minimize cargo truck trips on local roads and freeways. The Port is currently engaged in $150 million worth of projects to demonstrate the effectiveness of zero-emissions cargo-handling and power-storage equipment.
