 Section 1978 is added to the Welfare and Institutions Code, immediately following Section 1977, to read:

1978.
 In the event that a county that has been conditionally awarded financing, pursuant to this article, later determines that participating with other counties in a shared regional facility would provide an improved solution to the county’s needs and the needs of other counties, the original county may apply to the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) for redirection of the conditional award to another county that will be the lead county for the regional facility, in conjunction with the original county and, potentially, other counties. If the BSCC determines, based on findings submitted by the regional consortium of counties, that the redirection will result in cost savings, regional efficiencies, increased services, and improved outcomes, and that the design of the joint facility will enhance program delivery, health and mental health services, and the safety and security of minors, the BSCC may authorize the redirection of the conditional award. Redirection may only be considered prior to any approval or establishment of the project by the board.
