LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1199, Brownley. School bonds: citizens’ oversight committee.
Existing law requires, if a bond measure that provides financing for certain types of school facilities is approved by voters, the governing board of a school district or community college to establish and appoint members to an independent citizens’ oversight committee. Existing law also requires members of a citizens’ oversight committee to serve for a term of 2 years without compensation and for no more than 2 consecutive terms.
This bill would instead provide that members of a citizens’ oversight committee serve for a minimum term of 2 years without compensation and for no more than 3 consecutive terms.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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