	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 588, Goldberg  Statistical districts: Hollywood.
   Existing law requires any state agency or department that develops
and maintains data and statistics on the municipal level, to make a
separate breakdown of the San Fernando Valley, in the preparation and
maintenance of any statistical analyses by city, and authorizes
state agencies to require the City of Los Angeles to provide all
necessary data in this regard, except that an alternate method may be
used to determine the separate breakdown of the San Fernando Valley
if a tax area code is used in the statistical analysis.
   This bill would similarly require designated state entities to
make a separate breakdown of statistical data regarding the community
of Hollywood, as described.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:


SECTION 1.  The Legislature finds and declares all of the
following:
   (a) World famous Hollywood attracts about 10 million tourists each
year. It has turned a corner from the crime and dilapidation that
plagued the area for decades and today has attracted billions of
dollars in new development.
   (b) Hollywood now ranks as having one of the highest hotel
occupancy rates, gathering one of the highest room rates in all of
Los Angeles County.
   (c) Last year, Hollywood also experienced the largest
year-over-year increase in hotel occupancy rates and had the highest
room rate jump of all submarkets in Los Angeles County.
   (d) Because of the recent spur of development, the Hollywood
community now receives numerous requests each month for information
on the area. Developers and entrepreneurs interested in opening
businesses, civic and education leaders, and residents are
continually requesting specific data on Hollywood's population,
median income, employment, housing stock, general land use, tourism,
and infrastructure.
   (e) This critical data is either inaccessible or not collected at
all. It is also often scattered among multiple city agencies and
departments or not reported on a regular basis.
   (f) The difficulty, or sometimes impossibility, of gathering the
information in a timely manner jeopardizes bringing major development
to the area, and it poses significant barriers to planning and
promoting the economic and social growth of the community of
Hollywood.
SECTION 2.  Section 11093.4 is added to the Government Code, to read:

   11093.4.  (a) (1) The State Board of Equalization, Employment
Development Department, Department of Industrial Relations,
Department of Finance, and the Department of Transportation, shall,
in the preparation and maintenance of any statistical analyses and
data, by city, either by population, fiscal, or other bases, make a
separate breakdown of the community of Hollywood, and shall require
the City of Los Angeles to provide all necessary data at the sole
expense of the City of Los Angeles.
   (2) If the use of a tax area code is required in order to comply
with paragraph (1), an alternate method may be used to determine the
separate breakdown of the community of Hollywood.
   (3) The state entities specified in paragraph (1) are required to
implement the data reporting and analysis requirements of this
subdivision only to the extent that data is available from federal,
state, or local sources that provide data for other jurisdictions or
is provided by the City of Los Angeles. Those state entities are not
required to develop or collect data. No data shall be reported that
would violate data confidentiality agreements or rules. The state
entities are not required to report data that would not meet the
statistical accuracy standards for the publication or data series to
which they relate. The state entities may report special analyses or
data compilations for the community of Hollywood, if reimbursement or
other funding is provided.
   (b) For purposes of this section, the community of Hollywood is
all the portion of Los Angeles City that is described as follows:
   (1) The City of Los Angeles Hollywood Community Plan Area, which
was established in 1974 (Council File 72 -1629). For statistical
reporting purposes, the City of Los Angeles' Hollywood Community Plan
Area is comprised of selected United States Census Tracts. Per the
tracts established by the 2000 United States Census, the area's
selected tract numbers are: 188200, 189100, 189200, 189300, 189400,
189500, 189600, 189701, 189702, 189800, 189901, 189902, 190100,
