LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 151, Correa. State employees: memoranda of understanding.
Existing law provides that a provision of a memorandum of understanding reached between the state employer and a recognized employee organization representing state civil service employees that requires the expenditure of funds does not become effective unless approved by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act.
This bill would approve provisions of memoranda of understanding entered into between the state employer and State Bargaining Units 2, 6, 7, 9, 10, and 13, and would approve addenda to memoranda of understanding entered into by the state employer and State Bargaining Units 1, 3, 4, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21, that require the expenditure of funds, and would provide that these provisions will become effective even if funds for these provisions are approved by the Legislature in legislation other than the annual Budget Act.
The bill would provide that provisions of the memoranda of understanding and addenda to memoranda of understanding approved by this bill that require the expenditure of funds will not take effect unless funds for those provisions are specifically appropriated by the Legislature, and would require the state employer and the affected employee organization to meet and confer to renegotiate the affected provisions if funds for those provisions are not specifically appropriated by the Legislature.
The annual Budget Act appropriates specified amounts from the General Fund, unallocated special funds, and unallocated nongovernmental cost funds, for state employee compensation. In the event that the annual Budget Act is not enacted prior to July 1 of each year covered by the memoranda of understanding for State Bargaining Units 1, 3, 4, 11, 14, 15, 17, 20, and 21, existing law provides for a continuous appropriation for the amount necessary for the payment of compensation and benefits to members of those bargaining units.
This bill would expand that provision to also include members of State Bargaining Units 2, 6, 7, 9, 10, and 13.
The Public Employees’ Retirement Law (PERL) prescribes contribution rates for state employees who are state miscellaneous, state industrial, state safety members, patrol members, or state peace officer/firefighter members, among others, in amounts based on percentages of monthly compensation, as specified. Member contributions are deposited into the Public Employees’ Retirement Fund, which is a continuously appropriated trust fund.
This bill would increase the contribution rates by 5% for state miscellaneous, state industrial, or state safety members who are represented by State Bargaining Unit 13, by 3% for state miscellaneous, state industrial, or state safety members who are represented by State Bargaining Unit 2, 6, 7, 9, or 10, by 3% for state peace officer/firefighter members who are represented by State Bargaining Unit 6, and by 2% for state peace officer/firefighter members who are represented by State Bargaining Unit 7, beginning on the first day of the pay period following the operative date of the bill. By increasing member contributions into a continuously appropriated fund, this bill would make an appropriation. The bill would reduce the contribution rates by 1% for excluded state miscellaneous or state industrial members related to State Bargaining Unit 2.
Existing law requires the state to pay sworn members of the California Highway Patrol who are rank-and-file members of State Bargaining Unit 5 the estimated average total compensation for each corresponding rank in specified local police departments. Existing law requires any increase in total compensation resulting from a survey of the average compensation for those departments to be implemented through a memorandum of understanding negotiated pursuant to the Ralph C. Dills Act. Existing law requires that any amount that would otherwise be used to permanently increase compensation for those members of State Bargaining Unit 5 pursuant to those provisions, effective on July 1, 2009, and on July 1, 2010, to permanently prefund postemployment health care benefits for patrol members, as provided.
This bill would authorize the Director of the Department of Personnel Administration to apply the provision directing the use of those amounts to prefund postemployment health care benefits for patrol members to excluded patrol members and an officer or employee of the executive branch who is not a member of civil service.
The bill would also delete duplicative provisions of law.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.

22944.3.
 (a) Any amount that would otherwise be used to permanently increase compensation pursuant to Section 19827, effective on July 1, 2009, and on July 1, 2010, shall instead be used to permanently prefund postemployment health care benefits for patrol members. The amount used to prefund benefits relative to any increases under the survey methodology effective July 1, 2010, shall not exceed 2 percent. The state shall take credit for these prefunding contributions in the survey methodology established in Section 19827 in the same manner as it would for an increase to the base salary for patrol members.
(b) Patrol members shall contribute an additional 0.5 percent of base pay toward prefunding retiree health benefit obligations effective on the first day of the pay period following the effective date of the act adding this section and the ratification of the addendum by the members of State Bargaining Unit 5.

(c) Effective July 1, 2012, the state shall contribute toward prefunding retiree health benefits, on a prospective basis, an amount at least equal to the combined contribution rate established pursuant to subdivisions (a) and (b). These contributions may be used in the survey methodology established by Section 19827 if mutually agreed in a memorandum of understanding.
(d) Contributions paid pursuant to this section shall be used exclusively for the cost of providing postemployment health care to eligible enrolled patrol member annuitants and their eligible enrolled dependents, beneficiaries, and survivors.
(e) Contributions paid pursuant to this section shall not be refundable under any circumstances to a patrol member or his or her beneficiary or survivor.
(f) Any amount used to prefund postemployment health care for patrol members pursuant to subdivision (a) shall not be included in any calculation for benefits using final compensation.
(g) If the provisions of this section are in conflict with the provisions of a memorandum of understanding reached pursuant to Section 3517.5, the memorandum of understanding shall be controlling without further legislative action, except that if those provisions of a memorandum of understanding require the expenditure of funds, the provisions shall not become effective unless approved by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act.
(h) For purposes of this section, “patrol member” has the same meaning as in Section 20390. This section shall not apply to an employee of a county.
