Amended  IN  Assembly  March 24, 2011

CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1018


Introduced  by  Assembly Member Donnelly

February 18, 2011


An act to add Section 1232 to the Government Code, relating to public employees.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1018, as amended, Donnelly. Public employees.
Existing law authorizes the state, each city, each city and county, and each county to employ people.
This bill would require all state, city, city and county, and county employees to verify each person who requests state-funded benefits through the United States E-Verify Program that is an electronic verification of work authorization program of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigration Responsibility Act of 1996 Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program. By imposing new duties on local officials, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

SEC. 2.

 If the Commission on State Mandates determines that this act contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement to local agencies and school districts for those costs shall be made pursuant to Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code.
