LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1022, Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review. Correctional facilities.
Existing law, the Public Safety and Offender Rehabilitation Services Act of 2007, authorizes certain revenue bond construction of prison facilities. Under phase I of the act, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is authorized to design, construct, or renovate housing units, support buildings, and programming space in order to add up to 12,000 beds at facilities under its jurisdiction. The department is also authorized to acquire land, design, construct, and renovate reentry program facilities to provide housing for up to 6,000 inmates, as specified, and to design and construct new, or renovate existing, buildings and any necessary ancillary improvements, at facilities under the jurisdiction of the department to provide medical, dental, and mental health treatment or housing for up to 6,000 inmates. The provisions of phase I of the act authorize the State Public Works Board to issue revenue bonds, negotiable notes, or negotiable bond anticipation notes to finance the acquisition, design, and construction pursuant to those provisions, and provides that the authorized costs for the acquisition, design, and construction shall not exceed $1,800,000,000, $975,000,000, and $857,100,000, respectively, for the costs of the projects specified above. The provisions of phase I also authorize the board to borrow funds for project costs, including acquisition, design, construction, and construction-related costs, from the Pooled Money Investment Account, as specified.
This bill would instead authorize the department to design and construct new, or renovate existing, housing units, support buildings, programming space, and any necessary ancillary improvements in order to add capacity at facilities and to provide medical, dental, and mental health treatment or housing to inmates, and would specify the facilities and projects for which funds may be used. The bill would revise the maximum amount of costs authorized for the design and construction of the projects specified above. The bill would delete the provisions authorizing the department to acquire land, design, construct, and renovate reentry program facilities.
Existing law appropriates $300,000,000 from the General Fund for capital outlay to be allocated to renovate, improve, or expand infrastructure capacity at existing prison facilities. Existing law authorizes the funds to be used for specified other purposes, including for study and acquisition of options to purchase real property for reentry facilities, as specified.
This bill would eliminate the authorization to use the funds for study and acquisition of options to purchase real property for reentry facilities and would authorize the funds to be used for the design and construction of improvements to medication distribution facilities at state prison facilities. The bill would also revise various reporting and accounting requirements with respect to the funds.
Under phase II of the act, the department is required to complete site assessments at facilities where it intends to construct or renovate additional housing units, support buildings, and programming space in order to add up to 4,000 beds at facilities under its jurisdiction. Those provisions authorize the department to design and construct new, or renovate existing, buildings and any necessary ancillary improvements at facilities to provide medical, dental, and mental health treatment or housing for up to 2,000 inmates, and to acquire land, design, construct, and renovate reentry program facilities throughout the state that will house up to 10,000 inmates. Phase II of the act authorizes the State Public Works Board to issue revenue bonds, negotiable notes, or negotiable bond anticipation notes to finance those projects.
This bill would repeal phase II of the act.
Existing law authorizes the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, participating counties, and the State Public Works Board to acquire, design, and construct local jail facilities approved by the Corrections Standards Authority. Existing law authorizes the State Public Works Board to issue revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes in the amounts of $617,119,000 and $602,881,000 to finance the acquisition, design, and construction, and a reasonable construction reserve, of approved local jail facilities, as specified. The funds derived from those revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes are continuously appropriated for the purposes described above.
This bill would decrease the authorization for revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes from $617,119,000 to $445,771,000 and increase the authorization of $602,881,000 to $774,229,000. By increasing moneys deposited into a continuously appropriated fund, this bill would make an appropriation.
The bill would authorize the Board of State and Community Corrections, the State Public Works Board, and a participating county, as defined, to acquire, design, and construct an adult local criminal justice facility approved by the Board of State and Community Corrections, or to acquire a site or sites owned by, or subject to a lease option to purchase held by, a participating county. The bill would authorize the State Public Works Board to issue up to $500,000,000 in revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipate notes to finance the acquisition, design, and construction of approved adult local criminal justice facilities, and would continuously appropriate the funds for those purposes.
The bill would authorize the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to design and construct 3 level II dorm facilities adjacent to specified institutions, including Folsom State Prison, and would authorize the department to use specified funds previously appropriated to complete site suitability studies at those locations. The bill would authorize the State Public Works Board to issue up to $810,000,000 in revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes to finance design, construction, and construction-related costs for this project, and would continuously appropriate those funds for purposes relating to the project. The bill would also require the department, after completion of 3 Level II dorm facilities, to remove all inmates from, cease operations of, and close the California Rehabilitation Center in Norco, as specified.
The bill would also make nonsubstantive, technical changes.
The bill would appropriate the sum of $1,000 from the General Fund to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for administration.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.

CHAPTER  3.13. Financing of Adult Local Criminal Justice Facilities

15820.92.
 For purposes of this chapter, “participating county” means any county, or regional consortium of counties, within the state that has been certified to the State Public Works Board (the board) by the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) as having satisfied all of the requirements set forth in Section 15820.925 for financing an adult local criminal justice facility pursuant to this chapter. For purposes of this chapter, an adult local criminal justice facility may include any custodial housing, reentry, program, mental health, or treatment space necessary to manage the adult offender population consistent with the legislative intent described in Sections 17.5 and 3450 of the Penal Code under the jurisdiction of the sheriff or county department of corrections, as may be applicable, to be further defined by the BSCC in duly adopted regulations.
(a) The BSCC, a participating county, and the board are authorized to acquire, design, and construct an adult local criminal justice facility approved by the BSCC pursuant to Section 15820.925, or to acquire a site or sites owned by, or subject to a lease or option to purchase held by, a participating county. For the purposes of this chapter, acquisition shall include, but is not limited to, acquisition of completed facilities through a build-to-suit purchase. Facilities financed pursuant to this chapter may be delivered through either a design-bid-build or a design-build process. The ownership interest of a participating county in the site or sites for an adult local criminal justice facility shall be determined by the board to be adequate for purposes of its financing in order to be eligible under this chapter.
(b) Notwithstanding Section 14951, the participating county may assign an inspector during the construction of the adult local criminal justice facility.
(c) The BSCC, a participating county, and the board shall enter into an agreement for each adult local criminal justice facility that shall provide, at a minimum, performance expectations of the parties related to the acquisition, design, and construction, including, without limitation, renovation, of the adult local criminal justice facility; guidelines and criteria for use and application of the proceeds of revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes issued by the board to pay for the cost of the approved adult local criminal justice facility; and ongoing maintenance and staffing responsibilities for the term of the financing.
(d) The agreement shall include a provision that the participating county agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the State of California for any and all claims and losses arising out of the acquisition, design, and construction of the adult local criminal justice facility. The agreement may also contain additional terms and conditions that facilitate the financing by the board.
(e) The scope and cost of the adult local criminal justice facilities shall be subject to approval and administrative oversight by the board.
(f) For purposes of compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (Division 13 (commencing with Section 21000) of the Public Resources Code), neither the board nor the BSCC shall be deemed a lead or responsible agency and the participating county shall be the lead agency.

15820.921.
 Upon a participating county’s receipt of responsive construction bids or design-build proposals, or a participating county’s notification to the board of its intent to exercise a purchase option, the board and the BSCC may borrow funds for project costs after the adult local criminal justice facility has been certified pursuant to Section 15820.92 from the Pooled Money Investment Account pursuant to Sections 16312 and 16313, or from any other appropriate source. In the event any of the revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes authorized by this chapter are not sold, the BSCC shall commit a sufficient amount of its support appropriation to repay any loans made for an approved adult local criminal justice facility.

15820.922.
 (a) The board may issue up to five hundred million dollars ($500,000,000) in revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes, pursuant to Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 15830) to finance the acquisition, design, and construction, including, without limitation, renovation, and a reasonable construction reserve, of approved adult local criminal justice facilities described in Section 15820.920, and any additional amount authorized under Section 15849.6 to pay for the cost of financing.
(b) Proceeds from the revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes may be used to reimburse a participating county for the costs of acquisition, design, and construction, including, without limitation, renovation, for approved adult local criminal justice facilities.
(c) Notwithstanding Section 13340, funds derived pursuant to this section and Section 15820.921 are continuously appropriated for purposes of this chapter.

15820.923.
 In support of this state financing, the Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(a) The county adult criminal justice system needs more housing, program, and treatment space to manage the adult offender population under its jurisdiction.
(b) Appropriate county adult criminal justice housing, program, and treatment space will enhance public safety throughout the state by providing increased access to appropriate programs or treatment.
(c) By expanding county adult criminal justice capacity, this financing will serve a critical state purpose by promoting public safety.
(d) This purpose represents valuable consideration in exchange for this state action.

15820.924.
 With the consent of the board, the BSCC and a participating county are authorized to enter into leases or subleases, as lessor or lessee, for any property or approved adult local criminal justice facility and are further authorized to enter into contracts or other agreements for the use, maintenance, and operation of the adult local criminal justice facility in order to facilitate the financing authorized by this chapter. In those leases, subleases, or other agreements, the participating county shall agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the State of California for any and all claims and losses accruing and resulting from or arising out of the participating county’s use and occupancy of the adult local criminal justice facility.

15820.925.
 (a) The BSCC shall adhere to its duly adopted regulations for the approval or disapproval of adult local criminal justice facilities. The BSCC shall also consider cost-effectiveness in determining approval or disapproval. No state moneys shall be encumbered in contracts let by a participating county until one of the following occur:
(1) Final architectural plans and specifications have been approved by the BSCC, and subsequent construction bids have been received.
(2) Documents prepared by a participating county pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (d) of Section 20133 of the Public Contract Code have been approved by the BSCC, and subsequent design-build proposals have been received pursuant to that section.
(3) The participating county has notified the board of its intent to exercise an option to purchase the completed facility pursuant to Section 15820.921.
(b) The review and approval of plans, specifications, or other documents by the BSCC are for the purpose of ensuring the proper administration of moneys and the determination of whether the adult local criminal justice facility specifications comply with law and regulation. The BSCC may require changes in construction materials to enhance safety and security if materials proposed at the time of final plans and specifications are not essential and customary as used statewide for facilities of the same security level. Participating counties are responsible for the acquisition, design, construction, staffing, operation, repair, and maintenance of the adult local criminal justice facility.
(c) The BSCC shall establish minimum standards, funding schedules, and procedures, which shall take into consideration, but not be limited to, the following:
(1) Certification by a participating county of control of the adult local criminal justice facility site through either fee simple ownership of the site or comparable long-term possession of the site, and right of access to the adult local criminal justice facility sufficient to ensure undisturbed use and possession.
(2) Documentation of the need for the adult local criminal justice facility.
(3) A written adult local criminal justice facility proposal.
(4) Submittal of a staffing plan for the adult local criminal justice facility, including operational cost projections and documentation that the adult local criminal justice facility will be able to be safely staffed and operated within 90 days of completion, as may be applicable.
(5) Submittal of architectural drawings, which shall be approved by the BSCC for compliance with minimum adult detention facility standards and that shall also be approved by the State Fire Marshal for compliance with fire safety and life safety requirements.
(6) Documentation evidencing compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act.
(7) Provisions intended to maintain the tax-exempt status of the bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes issued by the board.

15820.926.
 (a) The participating county contribution for adult local criminal justice facilities financed under this chapter shall be a minimum of 10 percent of the total project costs. The BSCC may reduce contribution requirements for participating counties with a general population below 200,000 upon petition by a participating county to the BSCC requesting a lower level of contribution.
(b) The BSCC shall determine the funding criteria. Funding consideration shall be given to counties that are seeking to replace existing compacted, outdated, or unsafe housing capacity or are seeking to renovate existing or build new facilities that provide adequate space for the provision of treatment and rehabilitation services, including mental health treatment. Funding preference shall be given to counties that are most prepared to proceed successfully with this financing in a timely manner. The determination of preparedness to proceed shall include, but not be limited to, counties providing documentation of adequate, available matching funds authorized by the county board of supervisors from a source or sources compatible with this financing authority as determined by the State Public Works Board in its sole discretion. A participating county may only add housing capacity using this financing authority if the requesting county clearly documents an existing housing capacity deficiency. Any county requesting to add housing capacity using this financing authority shall be required to certify and covenant in writing that the county is not and will not be leasing housing capacity to any other public or private entity for a period of 10 years beyond the completion date of the adult local criminal justice facility.
