CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 2119


Introduced  by  Assembly Member Nielsen

February 23, 2012


An act to amend Section 68511.9 of the Government Code, relating to courts.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2119, as introduced, Nielsen. Courts: information technology projects.
Existing law provides that the California Case Management System, and all other administrative and infrastructure information technology projects of the Judicial Council or the courts with total costs estimated at more than $5,000,000, shall be subject to the review and recommendations of the California Technology Agency, as specified. Existing law requires the Secretary of California Technology to submit a copy of those reviews and recommendations to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
Existing law renames the office of the State Chief Information Officer as the California Technology Agency and the position of the State Chief Information Officer as the Secretary of California Technology and imposes duties on both regarding state information technology governance and implementation.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to the provisions requiring review of judicial information technology projects by correcting obsolete cross-references to the State Chief Information Officer and the office of the State Chief Information Officer.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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