Establishes priority to sites that interface with currently planned or operating systems and sites that allow for expansion. Specifies criteria for urban and rural site selection. Requires any selected monorail system to include specified components, including dual-track length, number of cars, passenger capacity, restrooms, and refreshment areas. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Costs to the state would be at least in the hundreds of millions of dollars, to the extent the Legislature appropriates funds for this measure.
