Proclaimed state and local emergencies: proclamations, communications, and materials: translation.

Abstract

Existing law, the California Emergency Services Act, authorizes the Governor to proclaim a state of emergency when specified conditions of disaster or extreme peril to the safety of persons and property exist, and to exercise certain powers in response to that emergency. The act also authorizes the governing body of a city, county, city and county, or an official designated by ordinance adopted by that governing body, to proclaim a local emergency, and to exercise certain powers in response to that emergency. Existing law defines the terms "state of emergency" and "local emergency" to mean the duly proclaimed existence of conditions of disaster or of extreme peril to the safety of persons and property within the state caused by, among other things, fire, storm, riot, epidemic, or cyberterrorism. Existing law requires the State Department of Health Care Services to require managed care plans providing Medi-Cal services to provide language assistance services to limited-English-proficient (LEP) beneficiaries. Existing law requires the department to determine, at least every 3 years, or more often as specified, when an LEP population meets the requirement for translation services by using a numeric threshold, including a population group of at least 3,000 or 5% of the beneficiary population, whichever is fewer, mandatory managed care Medi-Cal beneficiaries, residing in the service area, who indicate their primary language as other than English. This bill would require all proclamations, communications, materials, and announcements made by the Governor or a state agency related to a duly proclaimed state of emergency to be made available in all the threshold languages spoken by LEP speakers. The bill would define the term "threshold languages spoken by limited-English-proficient speakers " to mean the Medi-Cal threshold languages that are determined by the State Department of Health Care Services pursuant to the above-described language assistance services provisions. This bill would also require each county to translate all emergency-related proclamations, communications, materials, and announcements made by the county related to a duly proclaimed state of emergency or a local emergency duly proclaimed by the county into all languages spoken by 1,000 or more of the county's residents.
