Bill Subjects

Local Revenue Fund 2011.

Abstract

Existing law establishes the Local Revenue Fund 2011, a continuously appropriated fund, and creates various accounts and subaccounts within that fund, for purposes of funding Public Safety Services, as defined. Existing law requires counties to create, as specified, a County Local Revenue Fund 2011, and to create within that fund the Trial Court Security Account, the District Attorney and Public Defender Account, the Juvenile Justice Account, the Health and Human Services Account, and the Supplemental Law Enforcement Account. Existing law requires that those moneys in the fund and its accounts be used exclusively for Public Safety Services, as defined, and for other specific services, including funding grants pertaining to county probation, mental health, drug and alcohol, and other county departments to provide rehabilitative, housing, and supervision services to youthful offenders. This bill would create the Undistributed Account, the Foster Care Assistance Subaccount, and the Foster Care Administration Subaccount within the Local Revenue Fund 2011. The bill would allocate funding to those accounts, as specified, and make other conforming changes. The bill would authorize a county or counties to contract directly with the State Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, the State Department of Health Care Services, and the State Department of Social Services, as applicable and subject to certain conditions, to provide for the provision or administration of specified Medi-Cal drug treatment and agency adoption programs. The bill would require that savings achieved by counties as a result of the shift of residential placement costs for seriously emotionally disturbed youth from the State Department of Social Services to the State Department of Education, as specified, be redirected to supplement foster care, child welfare services, and adoptions program expenditures, as specified. Existing law requires in each county treasury a Supplemental Law Enforcement Services Account (SLESA) , to receive all amounts allocated to a county for purposes of specified law enforcement services. Existing law also requires that in any fiscal year for which a county receives moneys to be expended for those purposes, that the county auditor allocate the moneys in the county's SLESA as specified, including any interest or other return earned on the investment of those moneys. This bill would delete language requiring the allocated funds to include interest or other return earned on the investment of those moneys. Existing law provides that commencing with the 2011–12 fiscal year, the Controller shall allocate 9% of the amount deposited in the Local Law Enforcement Services Account in the Local Revenue Fund 2011 to the California Emergency Management Agency, and that these funds shall be allocated by the California Emergency Management Agency according to the agency's existing programmatic guidelines. Existing law also requires that of the amount allocated, the California Emergency Management Agency shall distribute these funds according to specified percentages. Existing law further provides that beginning in the 2009–10 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter the California Emergency Management Agency may retain up to 3% of the funds allocated, as specified, for program administrative costs. This bill would provide that the funds instead be allocated by the Controller pursuant to a schedule provided by the California Emergency Management Agency which shall be developed according to the agency's existing programmatic guidelines and according to specified percentages. This bill would abolish the annual 3% retainer, and instead provide that for the 2011–12 fiscal year, the California Emergency Management Agency be reimbursed up to $511,000, as specified, for program administrative costs. Existing law requires that for the 2010–11 fiscal year, and each fiscal year thereafter, a specified amount shall be transferred from the General Fund to the Youthful Offender Block Grant Fund. This bill would instead provide that for the 2011–12 fiscal year no money would be transferred from the General Fund to the Youthful Offender Block Grant Fund, and that for the 2012–13 fiscal year, and each fiscal year thereafter, a specified amount shall be transferred from the General Fund to the Youthful Offender Block Grant Fund. Existing law establishes a statewide automated welfare system for specified public assistance programs, and requires the Office of Systems Integration to migrate counties into the system, as specified. Existing law requires the office to produce a related report in 2012. This bill would additionally require the Office of Systems Integration to oversee the migration of 39 counties into a system jointly designed by the 39 counties in addition to the County of Los Angeles under a specified contract, among other requirements for implementation. The bill would also make a related change to the required report. Existing law establishes the Local Revenue Fund, a continuously appropriated fund with specified accounts and subaccounts. Existing law requires each county and city and county receiving funds from the Local Revenue Fund to establish and maintain a local health and welfare trust fund comprised of specified accounts. This bill would create the CalWORKs Maintenance of Effort Subaccount within the Local Revenue Fund, and require creation of a CalWORKs Maintenance of Effort Subaccount within local health and welfare trust funds, as specified. Existing law provides that, as to counties, certain funds that would have otherwise been deposited into the Mental Health Subaccount, as specified, shall instead be deposited in the Social Services Subaccount. This bill would instead provide that those funds be deposited in the CalWORKs Maintenance of Effort Subaccount. The bill would also specify a county's annual contribution towards the cost of CalWORKs grants. Existing law provides that moneys within the Local Revenue Fund 2011 shall, upon order of the Director of Finance, be used to reimburse the General Fund for costs incurred and expenditures made by the state on behalf of any local governmental entity in providing Public Safety Services, as defined. This bill would provide that moneys within the Local Revenue Fund 2011 and the Undistributed Account shall, upon order of the Director of Finance, be used to reimburse the General Fund for costs incurred and expenditures made by the state on behalf of any local governmental entity in providing Public Safety Services, as defined. The bill would require that, for the 2011–12 fiscal year, moneys within the Undistributed Account, upon order of the Director of Finance, be used to reimburse the General Fund for costs incurred and expenditures made by the state on behalf of any local governmental entity in providing Public Safety Services, as defined. This bill would require the Department of Finance to submit a report to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee regarding the funding of the Local Revenue Fund 2011, as specified. The bill would state the intent of the Legislature that legislation enacted to implement the 2011 Realignment shall address, at a minimum, funding necessary for local public safety to achieve successful outcomes from the implementation of criminal justice realignment provisions and funding for the child welfare services and foster care programs necessary to achieve critical outcomes, including state and federal performance reviews. The bill would appropriate $1,000 from the General Fund to the California Emergency Management Agency for specified program administrative costs. The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. Governor Schwarzenegger issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on December 6, 2010. Governor Brown issued a proclamation on January 20, 2011, declaring and reaffirming that a fiscal emergency exists and stating that his proclamation supersedes the earlier proclamation for purposes of that constitutional provision. This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared and reaffirmed by the Governor by proclamation issued on January 20, 2011, pursuant to the California Constitution. This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.
