Existing law, the Lanterman Developmental Disabilities Services Act, requires the State Department of Developmental Services to contract with regional centers to provide services and supports to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. Existing law requires the department to enter into contracts with private nonprofit corporations to operate regional centers that provide community services and support for consumers and their families, including, but not limited to, residential placement. Existing law sets forth the department's and the regional center's authority to negotiate and set provider rates, and sets forth certain limitations. Existing law authorizes prescribed provider rate increases and prohibits others. Existing law, commencing July 1, 2014, increases the state minimum wage to no less than $9 per hour, and commencing January 1, 2016, increases the state minimum wage to no less than $10 per hour. Existing law authorizes an adjustment in prescribed provider rates commencing July 1, 2014, as necessary to adjust employee wages to meet that state minimum wage. This bill would instead authorize an adjustment in prescribed provider rates as necessary to adjust employee wages to meet the state minimum wage law.
