LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 105, Committee on Budget. Transportation.
(1) Existing law provides for payment of current general obligation bond debt service for specified voter-approved transportation bonds from gasoline excise tax revenue in the Highway Users Tax Account and revenue in the Public Transportation Account, and requires the Controller to make specified transfers of revenues in that regard to the Transportation Debt Service Fund. Existing law, pursuant to the Budget Act of 2010, provides for a loan of $761,639,000 from gasoline excise tax revenue in the Highway Users Tax Account to the General Fund, to be repaid with interest by June 30, 2013.
Proposition 22, approved by the voters on November 2, 2010, amends the California Constitution to, among other things, impose new restrictions on the use of fuel excise tax revenues allocated to the state and revenues deposited in the Public Transportation Account.
This bill, in fiscal years 2010–11 and 2011–12, would require the Controller to transfer specified amounts of revenues deposited in the State Highway Account from vehicle weight fees to the Transportation Debt Service Fund to be used for reimbursement of the General Fund for payment of current general obligation bond debt service for specified voter-approved transportation bonds, in lieu of the previously authorized gasoline excise tax revenues and Public Transportation Account revenues. In subsequent years, the bill would require all vehicle weight fee revenues to be transferred for this purpose. The bill would make appropriations in this regard. The bill would require the Department of Finance to notify the Controller of the amount of debt service relating to expenditures for eligible mass transit guideway projects that may be paid from revenues restricted by Article XIX of the California Constitution.
This bill, in fiscal year 2010–11, would require the Controller to transfer specified amounts of revenues deposited in the State Highway Account from vehicle weight fees to the General Fund as a loan, in lieu of the previously authorized loan of gasoline excise tax revenues. The loan amount for 2010–11 would be repaid over 3 years beginning on June 30, 2014. The bill would also authorize an additional loan in fiscal year 2011–12 of specified vehicle weight fee revenues, to be repaid by June 30, 2015. The bill would make appropriations in this regard.
This bill would require the Controller to take various other conforming actions as of November 2, 2010, due to voter approval of Proposition 22 and to the extent the Controller has previously taken actions inconsistent with the requirements imposed by this bill.
(2) Existing law, in the 2011–12 fiscal year, requires certain revenues deposited in the State Highway Account that are not restricted as to expenditure by Article XIX of the California Constitution to be transferred to the Transportation Debt Service Fund for payment of current year debt service on certain mass transportation bonds. Thereafter, these revenues are to be transferred to the Public Transportation Account.
This bill would, instead, transfer these revenues to the Transportation Debt Service Fund for payment of current year debt service on certain mass transportation bonds in the 2011–12 and 2012–13 fiscal years. Beginning in 2013–14, these revenues would be retained in the State Highway Account until appropriated by the Legislature.
(3) Proposition 26, approved by the voters on November 2, 2010, amends the California Constitution to, among other things, require a 2/3 vote of both houses of the Legislature for any change in statute that results in any taxpayer paying a higher tax. Proposition 26 also provides that any tax adopted after January 1, 2010, but prior to November 3, 2010, that was not adopted in compliance with the 2/3 vote requirement shall be void on November 3, 2011, unless the tax is reenacted by the Legislature with a 2/3 vote.
Existing law, as of July 1, 2010, eliminates the state sales and use tax on motor vehicle fuel (gasoline) and increases the excise tax. Existing law, as of July 1, 2011, increases the sales and use tax on diesel and decreases the excise tax. Existing law requires the State Board of Equalization to annually modify both the gasoline and diesel excise tax rates on a going-forward basis so that the various changes in the taxes imposed on gasoline and diesel, as described above, are revenue neutral. Existing law enacts other provisions related to the implementation of these provisions.
This bill would repeal all of these provisions. The bill would enact new, similar replacement provisions, and state the intent of the Legislature that the changes are being made in order to comply with Proposition 26. The bill would also increase the new diesel sales and use tax rates to be applicable in fiscal years 2011–12, 2012–13, and 2013–14 above the rates currently in effect that the bill would repeal. These increases in the diesel sales and use tax rates would be offset by a reduction in the diesel excise tax rate as of July 1, 2011, and a requirement for the State Board of Equalization to adjust diesel excise tax rates on a going-forward basis to ensure that the overall changes in these diesel fuel taxes are revenue neutral.
(4) Existing statutory law provides that 75% of diesel sales tax revenues at the 4 ¾% rate are to be allocated by the Controller from the Public Transportation Account to local agencies for public transportation purposes 014. The bill would also eliminate the authority of the department to transfer funds as short-term loans to and from the Transportation Investment Fund, the Transportation Deferred Investment Fund, and the Public Transportation Account.
(7) Existing law creates the California Transportation Commission, with various duties and responsibilities relative to the programming and allocation of funds for transportation capital projects. Existing law requires the commission to submit, by December 15 of each year, an annual report to the Legislature summarizing the commission’s prior-year decisions in allocating transportation capital funds and identifying timely and relevant transportation issues facing the state. Existing law, the Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Bond Act of 2006, authorizes the issuance of $19.25 billion of general obligation bonds for specified purposes, including $2 billion to be transferred to the Trade Corridors Improvement Fund to be available, upon appropriation in the annual Budget Act by the Legislature and subject to such conditions and criteria as the Legislature may provide by statute, for allocation by the commission. Existing law requires the Department of Transportation to, on or before February 18, 2009, report to specified committees of the Legislature a summary of any memorandum of understanding or any other agreement executed between a railroad company and any state or local transportation agency relative to any project funded with moneys allocated from the Trade Corridors Improvement Fund.
This bill would instead require the commission to provide that report to specified committees of the Legislature within 30 days of receiving such a memorandum of understanding or executed agreement. The bill would also, commencing January 1, 2012, require the commission to provide semiannual reports to those committees on the status of all railroad projects programmed in the Trade Corridors Improvement Fund program. The bill would make these reporting requirements inoperative on January 1, 2015.
(8) The Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Bond Act of 2006 also requires that $1 billion of bond funds be deposited in the Transit System Safety, Security, and Disaster Response Account, administered by the California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA), for capital projects that provide increased protection against a security and safety threat, and for capital expenditures to increase the capacity of transit operators to develop disaster response transportation systems, as specified. Existing law requires 25% of available funds to be allocated to certain regional public waterborne transit agencies. Existing law requires entities receiving funds from that account to expend those funds within 3 fiscal years of the fiscal year in which the funds were allocated and requires that funds remaining unexpended after those 3 years revert to Cal EMA for reallocation in subsequent fiscal years.
This bill, notwithstanding these provisions, would provide that entities receiving an allocation of the funds set aside for regional public waterborne transit agencies, relative to allocations of funds made prior to June 30, 2011, shall have 4 fiscal years from the last day of the fiscal year in which the funds were received by that entity to expend those funds.
(9) Existing law requires funds from the Local Street and Road Improvement, Congestion Relief, and Traffic Safety Account of 2006 to be made available to the Controller for allocation to cities, counties, and a city and county, for purposes of the Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Bond Act of 2006, as specified. Upon receipt of funds, a city, county, or city and county is required to expend those funds within 3 fiscal years from the date that the funds are allocated to it by the Controller, and any funds not expended within that period are required to be returned to the Controller and reallocated to other cities, counties, or a city and county, as specified.
Existing law establishes the Highway Users Tax Account in the Transportation Tax Fund with revenues in the account restricted to expenditure on various purposes, including public street and highway purposes and certain mass transit guideway purposes.
This bill would authorize a city, county, or city and county that receives these funds in a fiscal year in which funds from the Highway Users Tax Account are deferred, suspended, borrowed, or shifted, to expend those funds within 4 fiscal years from the last date of the fiscal year in which the funds are allocated to it by the Controller.
(10) Existing law, the California High-Speed Rail Act, creates the High-Speed Rail Authority to develop and implement a high-speed rail system in the state, with specified powers and duties. Existing law provides for appointment of an executive director by the authority, who is exempt from civil service and serves at the pleasure of the authority. Existing law requires the executive director to be paid a salary established by the authority and approved by the Department of Personnel Administration.
This bill, for purposes of managing and administering the ongoing work of the authority in implementing the high-speed train project, would authorize the Governor, upon the recommendation of the executive director, to appoint up to 6 additional individuals, exempt from civil service, who would serve in specified positions at the pleasure of the executive director. The bill would require a salary survey to be conducted to determine the compensation for the executive director and additional exempt persons, and would require the salaries to be established by the authority and approved by the Department of Personnel Administration.
This bill would impose certain reporting requirements on the authority with respect to a portion of funds appropriated to the authority in the 2010 and 2011 Budget Acts, to be submitted to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
(11) Existing law provides that the Department of Transportation has full possession and control of the state highway system. Existing law creates various programs to fund transportation capital improvement programs and provides for allocation of those funds. Existing law requires the department to prepare an annual budget, as specified, for submission to the Governor.
This bill would require the department to submit specified supplemental information by May 1 of each year to the Legislative Analyst and to the Senate Committee on Appropriations and the Assembly Committee on Appropriations to substantiate the department’s proposed capital outlay support budget.
(12) Existing law provides for apportionment by the Controller of a specified amount of gasoline excise tax revenues in the Highway Users Tax Account to cities and counties for local street and road purposes, including revenues from the increase in the gasoline excise tax, pursuant to Chapters 11 and 12 of the 8th Extraordinary Session of the Statutes of 2010. These revenues, including the revenues from the increase in the gasoline excise tax, are not subject to expenditure requirements and restrictions that were applicable to revenues from the gasoline sales tax that was repealed by the above-referenced legislation.
This bill would clarify that the revenues apportioned to cities and counties from the increase in the gasoline excise tax may be used for any local street and road purpose and are not subject to the requirements and restrictions applicable to the former gasoline sales tax revenues.
(13) Under existing law, when the Department of Motor Vehicles determines that an applicant is lawfully entitled to a driver’s license, the department is required to issue that license to the applicant. Existing law specifies the contents of a driver’s license. Existing law requires that the front of an application for an original or renewal of a driver’s license or identification card contain a space for an applicant to give his or her consent to be an organ and tissue donor upon death.
This bill would also require the application for a driver’s license or identification card to contain a space for an applicant to indicate whether he or she has served in the Armed Forces of the United States and to give his or her consent to be contacted regarding eligibility to receive state or federal veterans benefits. The bill would require the Department of Motor Vehicles to electronically transmit to the Department of Veterans Affairs specified information on an applicant who has identified on his or her application for a driver’s license or identification card that he or she has served in the Armed Forces of the United States and consents to being contacted about veterans benefits.
(14) The bill would enact other related provisions.
(15) The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. Governor Schwarzenegger issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on December 6, 2010. Governor Brown issued a proclamation on January 20, 2011, declaring and reaffirming that a fiscal emergency exists and stating that his proclamation supersedes the earlier proclamation for purposes of that constitutional provision.
This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared and reaffirmed by the Governor by proclamation issued on January 20, 2011, pursuant to the California Constitution.
(16) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
Vote: 2/3   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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

(e) Subject to the requirements and conditions of this section, it is the intent of the Legislature to appropriate funds from the account so that the Controller may allocate the balance of these funds to eligible local agencies over the next four years, following the 2007–08 fiscal year.

 Section 6480.1 of the Revenue and Taxation Code is repealed.

SEC. 21.

 Section 6480.1 is added to the Revenue and Taxation Code, to read:

6480.1.
 (a) At any time that motor vehicle fuel tax or diesel fuel tax is imposed or would be imposed, but for the dyed diesel fuel exemption in paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 60100, or the train operator exemption in paragraph (7) of subdivision (a) of Section 60100 or paragraph (11) of subdivision (a) of Section 7401, or, pursuant to subdivision (f) of Section 6480, would be deemed to be imposed, on any removal, entry, or sale in this state of motor vehicle fuel, aircraft jet fuel, or diesel fuel, the supplier shall collect prepayment of retail sales tax from the person to whom the motor vehicle fuel, aircraft jet fuel, or diesel fuel is sold. However, if no sale occurs at the time of imposition of motor vehicle fuel tax or diesel fuel tax, the supplier shall prepay the retail sales tax on that motor vehicle fuel, aircraft jet fuel, or diesel fuel. The prepayment required to be collected by the supplier constitutes a debt owed by the supplier to this state until paid to the board, until satisfactory proof has been submitted to prove that the retailer of the fuel has paid the retail sales tax to the board, or until a supplier or wholesaler who has consumed the fuel has paid the use tax to the board. Each supplier shall report and pay the prepayment amounts to the board, in a form as prescribed by the board, in the period in which the fuel is sold. On each subsequent sale of that fuel, each seller, other than the retailer, shall collect from his or her purchaser a prepayment computed using the rate applicable at the time of sale. Each supplier shall provide his or her purchaser with an invoice for, or other evidence of, the collection of the prepayment amounts which shall be separately stated thereon.
(b) (1) A wholesaler shall collect prepayment of the retail sales tax from the person to whom the motor vehicle fuel, aircraft jet fuel, or diesel fuel is sold. Each wholesaler shall provide his or her purchaser with an invoice for or other evidence of the collection of the prepayment amounts, which shall be separately stated thereon.
(2) Each wholesaler shall report to the board, in a form as prescribed by the board and for the period in which the motor vehicle fuel, aircraft jet fuel, or diesel fuel was sold, all of the following:
(A) The number of gallons of fuel sold and the amount of sales tax prepayments collected by the wholesaler.
(B) The number of tax-paid gallons purchased and the amount of sales tax prepayments made by the wholesaler.
(C) In the event that the amount of sales tax prepayments collected by the wholesaler is greater than the amount of sales tax prepayments made by the wholesaler, then the excess constitutes a debt owed by the wholesaler to the state until paid to the board, or until satisfactory proof has been submitted that the retailer of the fuel has paid the tax to the board.
(c) A supplier or wholesaler who pays the prepayment and issues a resale certificate to the seller, but subsequently consumes the motor vehicle fuel, aircraft jet fuel, or diesel fuel, shall be entitled to a credit against his or her sales and use taxes due and payable for the period in which the prepayment was made, provided that he or she reports and pays the use tax to the board on the consumption of that fuel.
(d) The amount of a prepayment paid by the retailer or a supplier or wholesaler who has consumed the motor vehicle fuel, aircraft jet fuel, or diesel fuel to the seller from whom he or she acquired the fuel shall constitute a credit against his or her sales and use taxes due and payable for the period in which the sale was made. Failure of the supplier or wholesaler to report prepayments or the supplier’s or wholesaler’s failure to comply with any other duty under this article shall not constitute grounds for denial of the credit to the retailer, supplier, or wholesaler, either on a temporary or permanent basis or otherwise. To be entitled to the credit, the retailer, supplier, or wholesaler shall retain for inspection by the board any receipts, invoices, or other documents showing the amount of sales tax prepaid to his or her supplier, together with the evidence of payment.
(e) The rate of the prepayment required to be collected during the period from July 1, 1986, through March 31, 1987, shall be four cents ($0.04) per gallon of motor vehicle fuel distributed or transferred.
(f) On April 1 of each succeeding year, the prepayment rate per gallon for motor vehicle fuel, rounded to the nearest one-half of one cent ($0.005), of the required prepayment shall be established by the board based upon 80 percent of the combined state and local sales tax rate established by Sections 6051, 6051.2, 6051.3, 6051.5, 7202, and 7203.1, and Section 35 of Article XIII of the California Constitution on the arithmetic average selling price (excluding sales tax) as determined by the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission, in its latest publication of the “Quarterly Oil Report,” of all grades of gasoline sold through a self-service gasoline station. In the event the “Quarterly Oil Report” is delayed or discontinued, the board may base its determination on other sources of the arithmetic average selling price of gasoline. The board shall make its determination of the rate no later than November 1 of the year prior to the effective date of the new rate. Immediately upon making its determination and setting of the rate, the board shall each year, no later than January 1, notify by mail every supplier, wholesaler, and retailer of motor vehicle fuel. In the event the price of fuel decreases or increases or an exemption from sales tax for sales of fuel is enacted, and the established rate results in or could result in prepayments which consistently exceed or are significantly lower than the retailers’ sales tax liability, the board may readjust the rate.
(g) On April 1 of each succeeding year, the prepayment rate per gallon for aircraft jet fuel, rounded to the nearest one-half of one cent ($0.005), shall be established by the board based upon 80 percent of the combined state and local sales tax rate established by Sections 6051, 6051.2, 6051.3, 6051.5, 7202, and 7203.1, and Section 35 of Article XIII of the California Constitution on the arithmetic average selling price (excluding sales and state excise tax) as determined by the board. The board shall make its determination of the rate no later than November 1 of the year prior to the effective date of the new rate. The rate of the prepayment required to be collected for aircraft jet fuel shall be equal to 80 percent of the arithmetic average selling price of aircraft jet fuel as specified by industry publications. Immediately upon making its determination and setting of the rate, the board shall each year, no later than January 1, notify by mail every supplier, wholesaler, and retailer of aircraft jet fuel. In the event the price of aircraft jet fuel decreases or increases, and the established rate results in prepayments that consistently exceed or are significantly lower than the retailers’ sales tax liability, the board may readjust the rate.
(h) On April 1 of each succeeding year, the prepayment rate per gallon for diesel fuel, rounded to the nearest one-half of one cent ($0.005), shall be established by the board based upon 80 percent of the combined state and local sales tax rate established by Sections 6051, 6051.2, 6051.3, 6051.5, 7202, and 7203.1, and Section 35 of Article XIII of the California Constitution on the arithmetic average selling price (excluding sales and state excise tax) as determined by the board. The board shall make its determination of the rate no later than November 1 of the year prior to the effective date of the new rate. The rate of the prepayment required to be collected for diesel fuel shall be equal to 80 percent of the arithmetic average selling price of diesel fuel as specified by industry publications. Immediately upon making its determination and setting of the rate, the board shall each year, no later than January 1, notify by mail every supplier, wholesaler, and retailer of diesel fuel. In the event the rate of sales tax imposed on sales of diesel fuel increases or decreases or the price of diesel fuel decreases or increases, and the established rate results in or could result in prepayments that consistently exceed or are significantly lower than the retailers’ sales tax liability, the board may readjust the rate.
(i) (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, motor vehicle fuel sold by a supplier or wholesaler to a qualified purchaser who, pursuant to a contract with the State of California or its instrumentalities, resells that fuel to the State of California or its instrumentalities shall be exempt from the prepayment requirements.
(2) A qualified purchaser who acquires motor vehicle fuel for subsequent resale to the State of California or its instrumentalities pursuant to this subdivision shall furnish to the supplier or wholesaler from whom the fuel is acquired an exemption certificate, completed in accordance with any instructions or regulations as the board may prescribe. The supplier or wholesaler shall retain the certificate in his or her records in support of the exemption. To qualify for the prepayment exemption, both of the following conditions shall apply:
(A) The qualified purchaser does not take possession of the fuel at any time.
(B) The fuel is delivered into storage tanks owned or leased by the State of California or its instrumentalities via facilities of the supplier or wholesaler, or by common or contract carriers under contract with the supplier or wholesaler.
(3) For purposes of this subdivision, “qualified purchaser” means a wholesaler who does not have or maintain a storage facility or facilities for the purpose of selling motor vehicle fuel.

To the extent that the Controller has distributed any of the revenues identified in this paragraph to cities and counties pursuant to subparagraph (C) of paragraph (3) between October 14, 2010, and the effective date of this subparagraph, the Controller shall subsequently reduce the amount transferred to cities and counties on a monthly basis pursuant to subparagraph (C) of paragraph (3) and shall instead transfer these funds to the State Highway Account until all of the revenues that would have been transferred to the General Fund as a loan pursuant to Item 2660-011-0062 of Section 2.00 of the Budget Act of 2010 on and after November 2, 2010, have instead been transferred to the State Highway Account.
(D) Any remaining amount of the loans to the General Fund authorized pursuant to Item 2660-011-0062 of Section 2.00 of the Budget Act of 2010 that has not been made pursuant to subparagraph (B) on and after November 2, 2010, shall instead be made pursuant to subdivisions (a) and (b) of Section 9400.4 of the Vehicle Code from revenues in the State Highway Account derived from weight fees deposited in the account pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 9400.1 and Section 42205 of the Vehicle Code.
