personnel to enforce these provisions.  The bill would declare that
its provisions do not change existing law.
  (2) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse
local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state.  Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.

projects, for coastal resource enhancement projects, and for
