Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Gov. Code, Sec. 11549.54
Reasons for Exemption
Senate Bill 156 (2021) as codified, requires the CPUC to work with stakeholders, especially Caltrans, to identify and prioritize locations on state highway rights-of-way where the open access middle-mile network infrastructure can be constructed. (Gov. Code, § 11549.54.) As part of the legislative package to support this initiative, a statutory CEQA exemption was adopted (Pub. Res. Code, § 21080.51.).
