LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1253, Davis. Counties: recommended budget.
Existing law requires the board of supervisors of a county to consider and approve a recommended budget, including any necessary revisions to the recommended budget, on or before June 30 of each year. Existing law requires the board of supervisors to conduct a public hearing on the recommended budget, and to adopt a budget on or before October 2 of each year.
