SB 830 Amendments – The NUMMI EZ

Thank you to Senator Wright’s office for faxing me the bill amendments prior to publication.  Here is a PDF copy of the bill’s new language, and here is the language specifically related to creating a new Enterprise Zone for the NUMMI auto manufacturing plant in Fremont:

Section 7090 is added to the Government Code, to read:

7090. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of the Enterprise Zone Act, the Governor may designate a facility that manufactures automobiles in Fremont, California, to be an enterprise zone and waive any requirements for so designating that facility under the Enterprise Zone Act.

(b) The Governor shall exercise the authority under subdivision (a), to designate a facility that manufactures automobiles in Fremont, California, to be an enterprise zone or waive any requirements for the designation of that facility under the Enterprise Zone Act only by executive order.

In reading the remainder of the bill, it is interesting to see how all of the other preferences and incentives being offered to NUMMI are hinged on it being in an Enterprise Zone.
