LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 25, as amended, Blumenfield. Redevelopment.
Existing law requires a redevelopment agency, for the 2009–10 and 2010–11 fiscal years, to deposit revenue payments in its county’s Supplemental Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund for allocation to school entities. Existing law authorizes an agency, in order to make these payments, to borrow the amount required to be allocated to that agency’s Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund and requires the agency to repay the borrowed funds by a specified date.
This bill would authorize an agency to extend the date of repayment for the borrowed funds by 5 years.
Existing law suspends various activities of redevelopment agencies and prohibits the agencies from incurring indebtedness for a specified period. Existing law also dissolves redevelopment agencies and community development agencies, as of October 1, 2011, and designates successor agencies, as defined. Existing law exempts from dissolution a redevelopment agency of a community where the city or county that created the agency participates in a voluntary alternative redevelopment program, as prescribed. Existing law requires a participating city or county to make specified remittances for deposit in the Special District Allocation Fund and authorizes that city or county to enter into an agreement with an agency whereby the agency would transfer a portion of its tax increment to the city or county for the purpose of financing specified activities.
This bill would make technical, clarifying, and conforming changes to these provisions. The bill would modify provisions relating to agency indebtedness and the transfer of housing funds and responsibilities associated with dissolved redevelopment agencies. The bill would also provide, for the 2012–13 and 2013–14 fiscal years only, that an agreement to transfer tax increment between a city or county and an agency may include an additional amount to reimburse the city for a specified shortfall. The bill would make certain provisions operative only if a specified provision of law is operative.
The bill would appropriate $1,000 from the General Fund to the Department of Finance for the costs to comply with the bill.
The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. Governor Schwarzenegger issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on December 6, 2010. Governor Brown issued a proclamation on January 20, 2011, declaring and reaffirming that a fiscal emergency exists and stating that his proclamation supersedes the earlier proclamation for purposes of that constitutional provision.
This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared and reaffirmed by the Governor by proclamation issued on January 20, 2011, pursuant to the California Constitution.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 33334.2 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to read:

33334.2.
 (a) Except as provided in subdivision (k), not less than 20 percent of all taxes that are allocated to the agency pursuant to Section 33670 shall be used by the agency for the purposes of increasing, improving, and preserving the community’s supply of low- and moderate-income housing available at affordable housing cost, as defined by Section 50052.5, to persons and families of low or moderate income, as defined in Section 50093, lower income households, as defined by Section 50079.5, very low income households, as defined in Section 50105, and extremely low income households, as defined by Section 50106, that is occupied by these persons and families, unless one of the following findings is made annually by resolution:
(1) (A) That no need exists in the community to improve, increase, or preserve the supply of low- and moderate-income housing, including housing for very low income households in a manner that would benefit the project area and that this finding is consistent with the housing element of the community’s general plan required by Article 10.6 (commencing with Section 65580) of Chapter 3 of Division 1 of Title 7 of the Government Code, including its share of the regional housing needs of very low income households and persons and families of low or moderate income.
(B) This finding shall only be made if the housing element of the community’s general plan demonstrates that the community does not have a need to improve, increase, or preserve the supply of low- and moderate-income housing available at affordable housing cost to persons and families of low or moderate income and to very low income households. This finding shall only be made if it is consistent with the planning agency’s annual report to the legislative body on implementation of the housing element required by subdivision (b) of Section 65400 of the Government Code. No agency of a charter city shall make this finding unless the planning agency submits the report pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 65400 of the Government Code. This finding shall not take effect until the agency has complied with subdivision (b) of this section.
(2) (A) That some stated percentage less than 20 percent of the taxes that are allocated to the agency pursuant to Section 33670 is sufficient to meet the housing needs of the community, including its share of the regional housing needs of persons and families of low- or moderate-income and very low income households, and that this finding is consistent with the housing element of the community’s general plan required by Article 10.6 (commencing with Section 65580) of Chapter 3 of Division 1 of Title 7 of the Government Code.
(B) This finding shall only be made if the housing element of the community’s general plan demonstrates that a percentage of less than 20 percent will be sufficient to meet the community’s need to improve, increase, or preserve the supply of low- and moderate-income housing available at affordable housing cost to persons and families of low or moderate income and to very low income households. This finding shall only be made if it is consistent with the planning agency’s annual report to the legislative body on implementation of the housing element required by subdivision (b) of Section 65400 of the Government Code. No agency of a charter city shall make this finding unless the planning agency submits the report pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 65400 of the Government Code. This finding shall not take effect until the agency has complied with subdivision (b) of this section.
(C) For purposes of making the findings specified in this paragraph and paragraph (1), the housing element of the general plan of a city, county, or city and county shall be current, and shall have been determined by the department pursuant to Section 65585 to be in substantial compliance with Article 10.6 (commencing with Section 65580) of Chapter 3 of Division 1 of Title 7 of the Government Code.
(3) (A) That the community is making a substantial effort to meet its existing and projected housing needs, including its share of the regional housing needs, with respect to persons and families of low and moderate income, particularly very low income households, as identified in the housing element of the community’s general plan required by Article 10.6 (commencing with Section 65580) of Chapter 3 of Division 1 of Title 7 of the Government Code, and that this effort, consisting of direct financial contributions of local funds used to increase and improve the supply of housing affordable to, and occupied by, persons and families of low or moderate income and very low income households is equivalent in impact to the funds otherwise required to be set aside pursuant to this section. In addition to any other local funds, these direct financial contributions may include federal or state grants paid directly to a community and that the community has the discretion of using for the purposes for which moneys in the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund may be used. The legislative body shall consider the need that can be reasonably foreseen because of displacement of persons and families of low or moderate income or very low income households from within, or adjacent to, the project area, because of increased employment opportunities, or because of any other direct or indirect result of implementation of the redevelopment plan. No finding under this subdivision may be made until the community has provided or ensured the availability of replacement dwelling units as defined in Section 33411.2 and until it has complied with Article 9 (commencing with Section 33410).
(B) In making the determination that other financial contributions are equivalent in impact pursuant to this subdivision, the agency shall include only those financial contributions that are directly related to programs or activities authorized under subdivision (e).
(C) The authority for making the finding specified in this paragraph shall expire on June 30, 1993, except that the expiration shall not be deemed to impair contractual obligations to bondholders or private entities incurred prior to May 1, 1991, and made in reliance on the provisions of this paragraph. Agencies that make this finding after June 30, 1993, shall show evidence that the agency entered into the specific contractual obligation with the specific intention of making a finding under this paragraph in order to provide sufficient revenues to pay off the indebtedness.
(b) Within 10 days following the making of a finding under either paragraph (1) or (2) of subdivision (a), the agency shall send the Department of Housing and Community Development a copy of the finding, including the factual information supporting the finding and other factual information in the housing element that demonstrates that either (1) the community does not need to increase, improve, or preserve the supply of housing for low- and moderate-income households, including very low income households, or (2) a percentage less than 20 percent will be sufficient to meet the community’s need to improve, increase, and preserve the supply of housing for low- and moderate-income households, including very low income households. Within 10 days following the making of a finding under paragraph (3) of subdivision (a), the agency shall send the Department of Housing and Community Development a copy of the finding, including the factual information supporting the finding that the community is making a substantial effort to meet its existing and projected housing needs. Agencies that make this finding after June 30, 1993, shall also submit evidence to the department of its contractual obligations with bondholders or private entities incurred prior to May 1, 1991, and made in reliance on this finding.
(c) In any litigation to challenge or attack a finding made under paragraph (1), (2), or (3) of subdivision (a), the burden shall be upon the agency to establish that the finding is supported by substantial evidence in light of the entire record before the agency. If an agency is determined by a court to have knowingly misrepresented any material facts regarding the community’s share of its regional housing need for low- and moderate-income housing, including very low income households, or the community’s production record in meeting its share of the regional housing need pursuant to the report required by subdivision (b) of Section 65400 of the Government Code, the agency shall be liable for all court costs and plaintiff’s attorney’s fees, and shall be required to allocate not less than 25 percent of the agency’s tax increment revenues to its Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund in each year thereafter.
(d) Nothing in this section shall be construed as relieving any other public entity or entity with the power of eminent domain of any legal obligations for replacement or relocation housing arising out of its activities.
(e) In carrying out the purposes of this section, the agency may exercise any or all of its powers for the construction, rehabilitation, or preservation of affordable housing for extremely low, very low, low- and moderate-income persons or families, including the following:
(1) Acquire real property or building sites subject to Section 33334.16.
(2) (A) Improve real property or building sites with onsite or offsite improvements, but only if both (i) the improvements are part of the new construction or rehabilitation of affordable housing units for low- or moderate-income persons that are directly benefited by the improvements, and are a reasonable and fundamental component of the housing units, and (ii) the agency requires that the units remain available at affordable housing cost to, and occupied by, persons and families of extremely low, very low, low, or moderate income for the same time period and in the same manner as provided in subdivision (c) and paragraph (2) of subdivision (f) of Section 33334.3.
(B) If the newly constructed or rehabilitated housing units are part of a larger project and the agency improves or pays for onsite or offsite improvements pursuant to the authority in this subdivision, the agency shall pay only a portion of the total cost of the onsite or offsite improvement. The maximum percentage of the total cost of the improvement paid for by the agency shall be determined by dividing the number of housing units that are affordable to low- or moderate-income persons by the total number of housing units, if the project is a housing project, or by dividing the cost of the affordable housing units by the total cost of the project, if the project is not a housing project.
(3) Donate real property to private or public persons or entities.
(4) Finance insurance premiums pursuant to Section 33136.
(5) Construct buildings or structures.
(6) Acquire buildings or structures.
(7) Rehabilitate buildings or structures.
(8) Provide subsidies to, or for the benefit of, extremely low income households, as defined by Section 50106, very low income households, as defined by Section 50105, lower income households, as defined by Section 50079.5, or persons and families of low or moderate income, as defined by Section 50093, to the extent those households cannot obtain housing at affordable costs on the open market. Housing units available on the open market are those units developed without direct government subsidies.
(9) Develop plans, pay principal and interest on bonds, loans, advances, or other indebtedness, or pay financing or carrying charges.
(10) Maintain the community’s supply of mobilehomes.
(11) Preserve the availability to lower income households of affordable housing units in housing developments that are assisted or subsidized by public entities and that are threatened with imminent conversion to market rates.
(f) The agency may use these funds to meet, in whole or in part, the replacement housing provisions in Section 33413. However, nothing in this section shall be construed as limiting in any way the requirements of that section.
(g) (1) The agency may use these funds inside or outside the project area. The agency may only use these funds outside the project area upon a resolution of the agency and the legislative body that the use will be of benefit to the project. The determination by the agency and the legislative body shall be final and conclusive as to the issue of benefit to the project area. The Legislature finds and declares that the provision of replacement housing pursuant to Section 33413 is always of benefit to a project. Unless the legislative body finds, before the redevelopment plan is adopted, that the provision of low- and moderate-income housing outside the project area will be of benefit to the project, the project area shall include property suitable for low- and moderate-income housing.
(2) (A) The Contra Costa County Redevelopment Agency may use these funds anywhere within the unincorporated territory, or within the incorporated limits of the City of Walnut Creek on sites contiguous to the Pleasant Hill BART Station Area Redevelopment Project area. The agency may only use these funds outside the project area upon a resolution of the agency and board of supervisors determining that the use will be of benefit to the project area. In addition, the agency may use these funds within the incorporated limits of the City of Walnut Creek only if the agency and the board of supervisors find all of the following:
(i) Both the County of Contra Costa and the City of Walnut Creek have adopted and are implementing complete and current housing elements of their general plans that the Department of Housing and Community Development has determined to be in compliance with the requirements of Article 10.6 (commencing with Section 65580) of Chapter 3 of Division 1 of Title 7 of the Government Code.
(ii) The development to be funded shall not result in any residential displacement from the site where the development is to be built.
(iii) The development to be funded shall not be constructed in an area that currently has more than 50 percent of its population comprised of racial minorities or low-income families.
(iv) The development to be funded shall allow construction of affordable housing closer to a rapid transit station than could be constructed in the unincorporated territory outside the Pleasant Hill BART Station Area Redevelopment Project.
(B) If the agency uses these funds within the incorporated limits of the City of Walnut Creek, all of the following requirements shall apply:
(i) The funds shall be used only for the acquisition of land for, and the design and construction of, the development of housing containing units affordable to, and occupied by, low- and moderate-income persons.
(ii) If less than all the units in the development are affordable to, and occupied by, low- or moderate-income persons, any agency assistance shall not exceed the amount needed to make the housing affordable to, and occupied by, low- or moderate-income persons.
(iii) The units in the development that are affordable to, and occupied by, low- or moderate-income persons shall remain affordable for a period of at least 55 years.
(iv) The agency and the City of Walnut Creek shall determine, if applicable, whether Article XXXIV of the California Constitution permits the development.
(h) The Legislature finds and declares that expenditures or obligations incurred by the agency pursuant to this section shall constitute an indebtedness of the project.
(i) This section shall only apply to taxes allocated to a redevelopment agency for which a final redevelopment plan is adopted on or after January 1, 1977, or for any area that is added to a project by an amendment to a redevelopment plan, which amendment is adopted on or after the effective date of this section. An agency may, by resolution, elect to make all or part of the requirements of this section applicable to any redevelopment project for which a redevelopment plan was adopted prior to January 1, 1977, subject to any indebtedness incurred prior to the election.
(j) (1) (A) An action to compel compliance with the requirement of Section 33334.3 to deposit not less than 20 percent of all taxes that are allocated to the agency pursuant to Section 33670 in the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund shall be commenced within 10 years of the alleged violation. A cause of action for a violation accrues on the last day of the fiscal year in which the funds were required to be deposited in the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund.
(B) An action to compel compliance with the requirement of this section or Section 33334.6 that money deposited in the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund be used by the agency for purposes of increasing, improving, and preserving the community’s supply of low- and moderate-income housing available at affordable housing cost shall be commenced within 10 years of the alleged violation. A cause of action for a violation accrues on the date of the actual expenditure of the funds.
(C) An agency found to have deposited less into the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund than mandated by Section 33334.3 or to have spent money from the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund for purposes other than increasing, improving, and preserving the community’s supply of low- and moderate-income housing, as mandated, by this section or Section 33334.6 shall repay the funds with interest in one lump sum pursuant to Section 970.4 or 970.5 of the Government Code or may do either of the following:
(i) Petition the court under Section 970.6 for repayment in installments.
(ii) Repay the portion of the judgment due to the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund in equal installments over a period of five years following the judgment.
(2) Repayment shall not be made from the funds required to be set aside or used for low- and moderate-income housing pursuant to this section.
(3) Notwithstanding clauses (i) and (ii) of subparagraph (C) of paragraph (1), all costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees if included in the judgment, are due and shall be paid upon entry of judgment or order.
(4) Except as otherwise provided in this subdivision, Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 970) of Part 5 of Division 3.6 of Title 1 of the Government Code for the enforcement of a judgment against a local public entity applies to a judgment against a local public entity that violates this section.
(5) This subdivision applies to actions filed on and after January 1, 2006.
(6) The limitations period specified in subparagraphs (A) and (B) of paragraph (1) does not apply to a cause of action brought pursuant to Chapter 9 (commencing with Section 860) of Title 10 of Part 2 of the Code of Civil Procedure.
(k) (1) From July 1, 2009, to June 30, 2010, inclusive, an agency may suspend all or part of its required allocation to the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund from taxes that are allocated to that agency pursuant to Section 33670.
(2) An agency that suspends revenue pursuant to paragraph (1) shall pay back to its low- and moderate-income housing fund the amount of revenue that was suspended in the 2009–10 fiscal year pursuant to this subdivision from July 1, 2010, to June 30, 2015, inclusive except that the agency may pay back this revenue from July 1, 2010, to June 30, 2020, inclusive, providing the agency complies with the requirements of paragraph (3) of subdivision (c) of Section 33690.
(3) An agency that suspends revenue pursuant to paragraph (1) and fails to repay or have repaid on its behalf the amount of revenue suspended pursuant to paragraph (2) shall, commencing July 1, 2015, or if the agency complies with the requirements of paragraph (3) of subdivision (c) of Section 33690, commencing July 1, 2020, be required to allocate an additional 5 percent of all taxes that are allocated to that agency pursuant to Section 33670 for low- and moderate-income housing for the remainder of the time that the agency receives allocations of tax revenue pursuant to Section 33670.
(4) An agency that fails to pay or have paid on its behalf the full amount calculated pursuant to subparagraph (J) of paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of Section 33690, or subparagraph (J) of paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of Section 33690.5, as the case may be, shall, commencing July 1, 2010, or July 1, 2011, as applicable, be required to allocate an additional 5 percent of all taxes that are allocated to that agency pursuant to Section 33670 for low- and moderate-income housing for the remainder of the time that the agency receives allocations of tax revenue pursuant to Section 33670.

(I) Add the amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (D) to the amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (H).
(J) Notify each agency, each legislative body, and each county auditor of each agency’s amount. The county auditor shall deposit these amounts in the county Supplemental Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund pursuant to paragraph (1).
(3) The obligation of any agency to make the payments required pursuant to this subdivision shall be subordinate to the lien of any pledge of collateral securing, directly or indirectly, the payment of the principal, or interest on any bonds of the agency including, without limitation, bonds secured by a pledge of taxes allocated to the agency pursuant to Section 33670. Agencies shall factor in the fiscal obligations created by this subdivision when issuing bonded indebtedness.

(c) (1) Notwithstanding any other law, to make the full allocation required by this section, an agency may borrow from either the amount required to be allocated to the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund, pursuant to Sections 33334.2, 33334.3, and 33334.6, or any moneys in that fund, or both, unless executed contracts exist that would be impaired if the agency reduced the amount allocated to the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund or the amount of moneys in the fund, or both, pursuant to the authority of this subdivision.
(2) As a condition of borrowing pursuant to this subdivision, an agency shall make a finding that there are insufficient other moneys to meet the requirements of subdivision (a).

For indebtedness that bears interest at a variable rate, or for short-term indebtedness that is maturing during the fiscal year and that is expected to be refinanced, the amount of payments during the fiscal year shall be estimated by the agency.
(D) A repayment schedule for the funds borrowed pursuant to this subdivision, with such repayment structured that any unpaid balance, as of July 1, 2015, is repaid in annual amounts of not less than 20 percent of the outstanding balance as of that date.
(E) The information contained in the resolution required by this subdivision shall be reviewed for accuracy by the chief fiscal officer of the agency and the legislative body shall additionally adopt the resolution required by this section.
(d) The legislative body shall by March 1, 2010, report to the county auditor as to how the agency intends to fund the allocation required by this section, or that the legislative body intends to remit the amount in lieu of the agency pursuant to Section 33692.
(e) The allocation obligations imposed by this section, including amounts owed, if any, created under this section, are hereby declared to be an indebtedness of the redevelopment project to which they relate, payable from taxes allocated to the agency pursuant to Section 33670, and shall constitute an indebtedness of the agency with respect to the redevelopment project until paid in full.
(f) It is the intent of the Legislature, in enacting this section, that these allocations directly or indirectly assist in the financing or refinancing, in whole or in part, of the community’s redevelopment project pursuant to Section 16 of Article XVI of the California Constitution.
(g) In making the determination required by subdivision (a), the Director of Finance shall use those amounts reported in “Table 7, Assessed Valuation, Tax Increment Distribution and Statement of Indebtedness” for all agencies and for each agency in the 2006–07 edition of the Controller’s Community Redevelopment Agencies Annual Report made pursuant to Section 12463.3 of the Government Code, subject to any adjustments required by subdivision (h).
(h) With respect to the use of amounts reported in the 2006–07 edition of the Controller’s Community Redevelopment Agencies Annual Report for purposes of subdivision (a), both of the following shall apply:
(1) If revised reports were accepted by the Controller on or before September 1, 2008, the Director of Finance shall use appropriate data that has been certified by the Controller for the purpose of making the determinations required by subdivision (a).
(2) The director shall adjust the reported amounts of net and total tax increment revenue to exclude amounts apportioned to any redevelopment agency from any territory that has been deleted from any project area, as reported to the State Board of Equalization in accordance with Section 33375 prior to August 1, 2009, and that deletion is not reflected in the Controller’s 2006–07 published report or in the revised reports described in paragraph (1).
(i) Except as provided in Section 33331.5, nothing in this section shall be construed as extending the time limits on the ability of agencies to do both of the following:
(1) Establish loans, advances, or indebtedness.
(2) Exercise eminent domain powers.
(j) (1) Notwithstanding Sections 97.2 and 97.3 of Revenue and Taxation Code, the county auditor-controller shall distribute the funds that are remitted to the county Supplemental Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund by a redevelopment agency pursuant to this section only to a K-12 school district or county office of education that is located partially or entirely within any project area of that redevelopment agency in an amount proportional to the average daily attendance of each school district.
(2) The county auditor-controller shall notify each K-12 school district, and the State Department of Education, of the amount of Supplemental Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund moneys a district receives pursuant to this section from each redevelopment agency. The county auditor-controller shall also notify each K-12 school district receiving funds pursuant to paragraph (1) of the project area boundaries of each redevelopment agency from which the K-12 school district received funds.
(3) (A) The county superintendent of schools shall provide the average daily attendance reported for each school district as of the Second Principal Apportionment for the 2009–10 fiscal year to the county auditor-controller.

(3) Third, on January 16, 2012, and June 1, 2012, and each January 16 and June 1 thereafter, to each successor agency for the administrative cost allowance, as defined in Section 34171, for administrative costs set forth in an approved administrative budget for those payments required to be paid from former tax increment revenues.
(4) Fourth, on January 16, 2012, and June 1, 2012, and each January 16 and June 1 thereafter, any moneys remaining in the Redevelopment Property Tax Trust Fund after the payments and transfers authorized by paragraphs (1) to (3), inclusive, shall be distributed to local agencies and school entities in accordance with Section 34188.
(b) If the successor agency reports, no later than December 1, 2011, and May 1, 2012, and each December 1 and May 1 thereafter, to the county auditor-controller that the total amount available to the successor agency from the Redevelopment Property Tax Trust Fund allocation to that successor agency’s Redevelopment Obligation Retirement Fund, from other funds transferred from each redevelopment agency, and from funds that have or will become available through asset sales and all redevelopment operations, are insufficient to fund the payments required by paragraphs (1) to (3), inclusive, of subdivision (a) in the next six-month fiscal period, the county auditor-controller shall notify the Controller and the Department of Finance no later than 10 days from the date of that notification. The county auditor-controller shall verify whether the successor agency will have sufficient funds from which to service debts according to the Recognized Obligation Payment Schedule and shall report the findings to the Controller. If the Controller concurs that there are insufficient funds to pay required debt service, the amount of the deficiency shall be deducted first from the amount remaining to be distributed to taxing entities pursuant to paragraph (4), and if that amount is exhausted, from amounts available for distribution for administrative costs in paragraph (3). If an agency, pursuant to the provisions of Section 33492.15, 33492.72, 33607.5, 33671.5, 33681.15, or 33688, made passthrough payment obligations subordinate to debt service payments required for enforceable obligations, funds for servicing bond debt may be deducted from the amounts for passthrough payments under paragraph (1), as provided in those sections, but only to the extent that the amounts remaining to be distributed to taxing entities pursuant to paragraph (4) and the amounts available for distribution for administrative costs in paragraph (3) have all been exhausted.
(c) The county treasurer may loan any funds from the county treasury that are necessary to ensure prompt payments of redevelopment agency debts.
(d) The Controller may recover the costs of audit and oversight required under this part from the Redevelopment Property Tax Trust Fund by presenting an invoice therefor to the county auditor-controller who shall set aside sufficient funds for and disburse the claimed amounts prior to making the next distributions to the taxing jurisdictions pursuant to Section 34188. Subject to the approval of the Director of Finance, the budget of the Controller may be augmented to reflect the reimbursement, pursuant to Section 28.00 of the Budget Act.

 Section 34194 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to read:

34194.
 (a) A city or county that includes a redevelopment agency that has complied with this part shall make the remittances required by this section to the county auditor-controller. The county auditor-controller shall deposit an amount as determined by Section 34194.4 into the Special District Allocation Fund, and remaining funds shall be remitted to the county Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund, created pursuant to Article 3 (commencing with Section 97) of Chapter 6 of Part 0.5 of Division 1 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
(b) (1) For the 2011–12 fiscal year, a city or county shall remit an amount equal to the amount determined for the redevelopment agencies in that city or county pursuant to subparagraph (I) of paragraph (2).

(A) Determine the net tax increment apportioned to each redevelopment agency pursuant to Section 33670, calculated as a redevelopment agency’s tax increment revenue, excluding any amounts apportioned to affected taxing agencies pursuant to Section 33401, 33492.140, 33607, 33607.5, 33607.7, or 33676, and excluding all amounts used to pay for tax allocation bonds and interest payments specified in the Controller’s report, in the 2008–09 fiscal year.
(B) Determine the net tax increment apportioned to all redevelopment agencies pursuant to Section 33670, calculated as all redevelopment agencies’ tax increment revenue, excluding any amounts apportioned to affected taxing agencies pursuant to Section 33401, 33492.140, 33607, 33607.5, 33607.7, or 33676, and excluding all amounts used to pay for tax allocation bonds and interest payments specified in the Controller’s report, in the 2008–09 fiscal year.
(C) Determine each redevelopment agency’s proportionate share of statewide net tax increment by dividing the amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (A) by the amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (B).
(D) Determine a proportionate amount of net tax increment for each redevelopment agency by multiplying one billion seven hundred million dollars ($1,700,000,000) by the proportionate share determined pursuant to subparagraph (C).
(E) Determine the total amount of property tax revenue apportioned to each redevelopment agency pursuant to Section 33670, calculated as a redevelopment agency’s tax increment revenue, including any amounts apportioned to affected taxing agencies pursuant to Section 33401, 33492.140, 33607, 33607.5, 33607.7, or 33676, and including all amounts used for payments of tax allocation bonds and interest payments specified in the Controller’s report, in the 2008–09 fiscal year.

(G) Determine each redevelopment agency’s proportionate share of property tax revenue by dividing the amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (E) by the amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (F).
(H) Determine a proportionate amount of property tax revenue for each redevelopment agency by multiplying one billion seven hundred million dollars ($1,700,000,000) by the proportionate share determined pursuant to subparagraph (G).
(I) Average the amounts determined pursuant to subparagraphs (D) and (H).
(J) On or before August 1, 2011, notify each city or county of the amount determined pursuant to subparagraph (I) for a redevelopment agency of that city or county.
(K) Notify each county auditor-controller of the amounts determined pursuant to subparagraph (I) for each agency in his or her county.
(L) (i) After receiving the notification from the Director of Finance pursuant to subparagraph (J), a city or county may appeal the amount of remittance to the director on or before August 15, 2011, on the basis that the information in the Controller’s report was in error or that the percentage of tax increment necessary to pay for tax allocation bonds and interest payments has increased by 10 percent or more over the percentage calculated pursuant to the Controller’s redevelopment agency 2008–09 annual report. Any appeal shall include documentation that clearly and convincingly establishes the basis of the appeal and the amount of the claimed discrepancy.
(ii) The director may reject the appeal or approve it, in whole or in part, at the director’s sole discretion. The director shall notify the city or county and the county auditor-controller of the decision on the appeal by September 15, 2011. However, the director may extend the decision deadline, at the director’s discretion and upon notification of the city or county and the county auditor-controller, until October 15, 2011, in which case the date by which the city or county must enact the ordinance required by this part shall be extended until December 1, 2011. If the director determines that the percentage of tax increment necessary to pay for tax allocation bonds or interest payments has increased by 10 percent or more, as described by this subparagraph, then the director shall recalculate the remittance amount for the city or county identified in subparagraph (I) by reducing the amount in subparagraph (D) to reflect any percentage increase that is in excess of 10 percent.
(iii) An appeal to the director by a city or county of a community remittance amount pursuant to this subparagraph also may be based on the permanent termination, prior to the 2012–13 fiscal year, of the allocation of tax increment to an agency for a project area that received tax increment in the 2008–09 fiscal year. If the director approves an appeal on this basis, then the director may recalculate the remittance amount for that city or county by excluding any amounts pertaining to that project area from the calculations specified in subparagraphs (A) to (I), inclusive. A city or county may file an appeal on this basis with the director on or before September 30, 2011, in which case the extended decision and ordinance enactment deadlines specified in clause (ii) shall apply, except that the director’s deadline for a decision on the appeal shall be October 28, 2011.
(c) For the 2012–13 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter a participating community shall remit an amount equal to the sum of the amounts specified in paragraphs (1) and (2):
(1) For a community subject to a remittance amount determined for the 2011–12 fiscal year pursuant to subdivision (b), a base payment equal to the base payment in the prior fiscal year, increased by the percentage growth or decreased by the percentage reduction, as appropriate, from the prior fiscal year in the total adjusted amount of property tax increment revenue allocated to the redevelopment agency of the community pursuant to Section 33670 with respect to project areas that were in existence, and for which the agency received allocations of tax increment revenue, during the 2011–12 fiscal year. For the purposes of this calculation, “base payment in the prior fiscal year” shall not be less than one dollar ($1).
(A) For the 2012–13 fiscal year, the base payment in the prior fiscal year shall be the remittance amount determined pursuant to subdivision (b) for the 2011–12 fiscal year multiplied by the ratio of four hundred million dollars ($400,000,000) to one billion seven hundred million dollars ($1,700,000,000).
(B) The “adjusted amount of property tax increment revenue” described in this paragraph means an amount of property tax increment in any fiscal year for a project area that is calculated by subtracting the amount of any debt service or other payments for new debt issuances or obligations, as provided in paragraph (2), from the total amount of property tax increment revenue allocated in that year to the agency with respect to that project area.
(2) (A) An amount equivalent to 80 percent, or any lesser amount as may be authorized by law for qualifying projects, of the total net school share, as described in subparagraph (B), of debt service or other payments made in that fiscal year for new debt or obligations issued or incurred on or after November 1, 2011, as shown on the agency’s statement of indebtedness, excluding any debts issued or incurred on behalf of the agency’s Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund, established pursuant to Section 33334.3. “New debt” means debt that is displayed on a statement of indebtedness filed after a statement of indebtedness filed on October 1, 2011, that was not displayed on the statement of indebtedness filed on October 1, 2011.
(B) For the purpose of subparagraph (A), the net school share shall be the school share of the property tax increment revenues, less any passthrough payments to school entities, that would have been received in the absence of redevelopment by school entities, as defined in subdivision (f) of Section 95 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, in the jurisdictional territory of the redevelopment agency, including, but not limited to, the amounts specified in Section 97.68 and 97.70 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
(C) It is the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation in the 2011–12 session to prescribe a schedule of reductions in the community remittance, described in subparagraph (A), that will authorize payments of less than 80 percent of the school share of property taxes to the Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund. The reductions shall apply for bonds issued for the purpose of funding projects that advance the achievement of statewide goals with respect to transportation, housing, economic development and job creation, environmental protection and remediation, and climate change, including, but not limited to, projects that are consistent with the Sustainable Communities Strategy developed pursuant to Chapter 4.2 (commencing with Section 21155) of Division 13 of the Public Resources Code.
(3) On or before November 1 of each year, the city or county shall notify the Department of Finance, the Controller, and the county auditor-controller of the remittance amount required by the calculations described in this subdivision. The Director of Finance, the Controller, and the county auditor-controller shall each be authorized to audit and verify the remittance amount that is determined by the city or county. The county auditor-controller, based upon an audit conducted by that office, or upon notification by the Director of Finance or the Controller based on an audit conducted by those offices, that determines that the city or county has miscalculated its remittance payment amount, shall adjust the amount of the next remittance payment that shall be paid by the city or county to reflect the correct amount of payment previously owed by the city or county as identified in that audit, as required by this subdivision.
(d) (1) A city or county shall pay one-half of the total remittance amount, as calculated pursuant to subdivision (b) or (c), on or before January 15 of each year and shall pay the remaining one-half of the remittance amount on or before May 15 of each year.
(2) If a city or county fails to make its remittance payment as required by paragraph (1), the county auditor-controller shall notify the Director of Finance of the failure to make the payment within 30 days. Upon receipt of the notification, the Director of Finance may determine that the redevelopment agency in the city or county shall be subject to the requirements of Part 1.8 (commencing with Section 34161) and Part 1.85 (commencing with Section 34170) as described in Section 34195.

 Section 34194.4 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to read:

34194.4.
 (a) The county auditor-controller in each county in which a redevelopment agency exists shall establish in the county treasury a Special District Allocation Fund. The county auditor-controller shall deposit the following amounts into the fund out of each annual remittance by a city or county that includes a special district under this section paid pursuant Section 34194 as follows:
(1) For the 2011–12 fiscal year, the amount shall be the city’s or county’s remittance amount multiplied by the ratio of four million three hundred thousand dollars ($4,300,000) to one billion seven hundred million dollars ($1,700,000,000).
(2) For the 2012–13 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the amount shall be the city’s or county’s remittance amount multiplied by the ratio of sixty million dollars ($60,000,000) to four hundred million dollars ($400,000,000).
(3) Amounts derived from the remittance payments of each city or county shall be maintained in separate accounts in the fund.
(b) On or before May 15 each year, the county auditor-controller shall make payments out of each account in the Special District Allocation Fund to each special district whose boundaries include all or any portion of a redevelopment project area of the city’s or county’s redevelopment agency for special district services that the district determines further redevelopment purposes. Each special district shall receive a proportionate share of the total annual deposit in the account, determined as follows:
(1) For each special district, the auditor-controller shall determine the annual amount of tax increment revenue of the city’s or county’s redevelopment agency that is attributable to the special district. This amount shall be the amount of additional property tax revenue that the special district would have received in that year had property tax collected on incremental assessed value within the redevelopment project areas been allocated to the district under the property tax allocation laws then in effect. From this amount, the auditor-controller shall subtract any passthrough payments received in that year by the special district from the redevelopment agency.
(2) The county auditor-controller shall sum all of the annual amounts for individual special districts determined in paragraph (1).
(3) For each special district, the county auditor-controller shall calculate the ratio of the amount determined for that special district under paragraph (1) to the total amount determined in paragraph (2). This ratio shall be each special district’s proportion of the total payment from the account.
(c) For the purposes of this section, “special district” means a district that provides fire protection services and a transit district. A special district that has both excluded and nonexcluded functions and that serves nonexcluded functions within a redevelopment project area shall receive a prorated share proportionate to the special district’s overall share of countywide property tax that is received for its nonexcluded functions.
(d) The auditor-controller shall report the payments made to special districts pursuant to this section to the Controller by June 30 each year in a form and manner as specified by the Controller.
(e) The county auditor-controller may require special districts to provide, as a condition of receiving payments from the Special District Allocation Fund, any relevant information necessary to the determination of the payments made pursuant to this section.
