CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2011–2012 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 2223


Introduced  by  Assembly Member Williams

February 24, 2012


An act to amend Section 11011 of the Government add Section 84750.7 to the Education Code, relating to state property community colleges.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2223, as amended, Williams. Surplus state property. Community colleges: Santa Barbara Community College District.
Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law establishes a community college funding system, among the components of which is the apportionment of state funds to community college districts. Existing law provides for the calculation of the amounts of these apportionments on the basis of the number of full-time equivalent students (FTES) in attendance at community college campuses.
This bill, notwithstanding existing law, would authorize the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges to apportion full funding per FTES to educational centers in the Santa Barbara Community College District irrespective of the number of FTES enrolled at those educational centers.
This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the Santa Barbara Community College District.

Existing law requires each state agency to annually make a review of all proprietary state lands, with certain exceptions for, among other things, lands under the jurisdiction of specified state entities, over which it has jurisdiction to determine what, if any, land is in excess of its foreseeable needs and report thereon to the Department of General Services.

This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.

Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NOYES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 84750.7 is added to the Education Code, to read:

84750.7.
 Notwithstanding any other law, the chancellor may apportion full funding per full-time equivalent student (FTES) to educational centers in the Santa Barbara Community College District irrespective of the number of FTES enrolled at those educational centers.

SEC. 2.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique circumstances facing the Santa Barbara Community College District.
SECTION 1.Section 11011 of the Government Code is amended to read:
11011.

(a)On or before December 31 of each year, each state agency shall make a review of all proprietary state lands, other than tax-deeded land, land held for highway purposes, lands under the jurisdiction of the State Lands Commission, land that has escheated to the state or that has been distributed to the state by court decree in estates of deceased persons, and lands under the jurisdiction of the State Coastal Conservancy, over which it has jurisdiction to determine what, if any, land is in excess of its foreseeable needs and report thereon in writing to the Department of General Services. These lands shall include, but not be limited to, the following:

(1)Land not currently being used, or currently being underused, by the state agency for any existing or ongoing state program.

(2)Land for which the state agency has not identified any specific use relative to future programmatic needs.

(3)Land not identified by the state agency within its master plans for facility development.

(c)The Department of General Services shall report to the Legislature annually, the land declared excess and request authorization to dispose of the land by sale or otherwise.

(d)The Department of General Services shall review and consider reports submitted to the Director of General Services pursuant to Section 66907.12 of this code and Section 31104.3 of the Public Resources Code prior to recommending or taking any action on surplus land, and shall also circulate the reports to all agencies that are required to report excess land pursuant to this section. In recommending or determining the disposition of surplus lands, the Director of General Services may give priority to proposals by the state that involve the exchange of surplus lands for lands listed in those reports.

(e)Except as otherwise provided by law, whenever any land is reported as excess pursuant to this section, the Department of General Services shall determine whether or not the use of the land is needed by any other state agency. If the Department of General Services determines that any land is needed by any other state agency it may transfer the jurisdiction of this land to the other state agency upon the terms and conditions it may deem to be in the best interests of the state.

(f)When authority is granted for the sale or other disposition of lands declared excess, and the Department of General Services has determined that the use of the land is not needed by any other state agency, the Department of General Services shall sell the land or otherwise dispose of the same pursuant to the authorization, upon any terms and conditions and subject to any reservations and exceptions the Department of General Services may deem to be in the best interests of the state.

Thereafter, the net proceeds received pursuant to this section shall be deposited in the Special Fund for Economic Uncertainties.

For purposes of this section, net proceeds shall be defined as proceeds less any outstanding loans from the General Fund, or outstanding reimbursements due to the Property Acquisition Law Money Account for costs incurred prior to June 30, 2005, related to the management of the state’s real property assets, including, but not limited to, surplus property identification, legal research, feasibility statistics, activities associated with land use, and due diligence.

(h)The Director of Finance may approve loans from the General Fund to the Property Acquisition Law Money Account, which is hereby created in the State Treasury, to support the management of the state’s real property assets.

(i)Rentals or other revenues received by the department from real properties, the jurisdiction of which has been transferred to the Department of General Services under this section, shall be deposited in the Property Acquisition Law Money Account and shall be available for expenditure by the Department of General Services upon appropriation by the Legislature.

(j)This section shall not be construed to prohibit the sale, letting, or other disposition of any state lands pursuant to any law now or hereafter enacted authorizing the sale, letting, or disposition.

(k)(1)The disposition of a parcel of surplus state real property, pursuant to Section 11011.1, made on an “as is” basis shall be exempt from Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 21100) to Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 21165), inclusive, of Division 13 of the Public Resources Code.

(2)If the disposition of a parcel of surplus state real property, pursuant to Section 11011.1, is not made on an “as is” basis and close of escrow is contingent on the satisfaction of a local governmental land use entitlement approval requirement or compliance by the local government with Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 21100) to Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 21165), inclusive, of Division 13 of the Public Resources Code, the execution of the purchase and sale agreement or of the exchange agreement by all parties to the agreement shall be exempt from Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 21100) to Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 21165), inclusive, of Division 13 of the Public Resources Code.
