Existing law vests in the State Department of Developmental Services jurisdiction over state hospitals referred to as developmental centers for the provision of residential care to individuals with developmental disabilities. Existing law requires the department to comply with procedural requirements when closing a developmental center, including submitting a detailed plan to the Legislature and holding at least one public hearing. Under existing law, the department allocates funds to private nonprofit entities known as regional centers, which are required to provide, or arrange for the provision of, services and supports for persons with developmental disabilities. This bill would require the Department of Finance, upon the closure of the Sonoma Developmental Center, Fairview Developmental Center, or the nonsecured portion of the Porterville Developmental Center, to deposit the net savings from the closure of each center, as defined, into the Lanterman Act Community-Based Services Fund, s newly created fund. The bill would make the moneys in the fund available to the department, upon appropriation, to be used to supplement existing purchase-of-service funds used by regional centers to purchase services and supports for persons with developmental disabilities.
