LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 245, as amended, Portantino. Child care: contractors: electronic payment.
Existing law authorizes the Superintendent of Public Instruction to enter into and execute local contractual agreements with any public or private entity or agency for the delivery of child care and development services or the furnishing of property, facilities, personnel, supplies, equipment, and administrative services related to the delivery of child care development services.
This bill would require the Controller State Department of Education, on and after January 1, 2013, to pay those contracts at the request of a contractor for a contract executed by the department, as described above, to request the Controller to make a payment via direct deposit by electronic fund transfer into the contractor’s account at the financial institution of the contractor’s choice. The bill would require the Controller to make an agreement with one or more financial institutions participating in the Automated Clearing House to establish a program for direct deposit by electronic fund transfer, as specified.

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