NATURAL GAS. LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACQUISITION AND CONTROL. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Authorizes any county, city, public district or municipal corporation, including an irrigation district, to buy or otherwise acquire natural gas from any public or private entity, and to acquire, operate and control equipment and facilities for the exploration, development, production, distribution, sale or lease of natural gas for any public or private use. Exempts local governments, districts and municipal corporations exercising this authority from regulatory control by the Public Utilities Commission. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: The measure would result in the fiscal impact of potential increased spending by local governments on natural gas-related activities, offset by fees charged to energy users.
