2008 Update SB 1691: The Mechanics Lien Law That Is Before the Legislature

Over the past several years, the California Law Review Commission has been reviewing the existing mechanics lien laws and considering changes to those laws. Proposed changes to the existing mechanics lien laws will affect both public and private mechanics liens, stop notices, and payment bonds. The bill includes substantive and nonsubstantive changes to the existing laws.. As part of the California Law Review Commission process, the Commission received comments from members of the construction industry.

COMPILATION OF NEW 2008 CALIFORNIA CONSTRUCTION RELATED LAWS

Existing law establishes standards for the designation of a highway or road segment as a Safety Enhancement-Double Fine Zone and limits the term of such a zone to 4 years. This bill would modify the standards for the designation of a segment of a state highway as a Safety Enhancement-Double Fine Zone, including requiring the Director of Transportation, in consultation with the Commissioner of the California Highway Patrol, to certify that a segment of state highway meets specified criteria. The bill would provide that designation as a Safety Enhancement-Double Fine Zone would be valid for a minimum of 2 years and would authorize the renewal and revocation of a designation, as specified. The bill would declare that a specified segment of State Highway Route 12 is eligible for designation as a Safety Enhancement-Double Fine Zone. The bill would also require the Department of Transportation to conduct a Safety Enhancement-Double Fine Zone study, as specified.
