Information collected pursuant to this section shall be transmitted on request to the Legislature and to other state agencies, including, but not limited to, the State Board of Equalization, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the Department of Food and Agriculture.

History.—Stats. 1972, p. 2393, in effect December 13, 1972, renumbered and amended former Section 16119 as Section 16154. Stats. 1973, Ch. 140, p. 376, in effect January 1, 1974, added "Food and" in the first sentence of the second paragraph. Stats. 1984, Ch. 193, in effect January 1, 1985, substituted "Section 8 of Article XIII" for "the provisions of Article 28" in the first paragraph.

* Section 7 of Stats. 1976, Ch. 658, provided that the intent of the Legislature is to reallocate the open-space subventions to give greater priority to lands which are threatened with development or urbanization. It is also the intent of the Legislature that the provisions of this bill apply only until a revised system is developed by the state to more clearly express its interest in the preservation of certain categories of land.
