LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 30, Blumenfield. Budget Act of 2011: revisions.
The Budget Act of 2011 made appropriations for the support of state government during the 2011–12 fiscal year.
This bill would make changes in specified items of appropriation in connection with the Healthy Families Program, as administered by the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board.
This bill would become operative only if revenues, net of refunds, derived from an imposition of tax, that is effective on and after July 1, 2011, and before July 1, 2012, on Medi-Cal managed care plans are deposited into the Children’s Health and Human Services Special Fund.
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 Budget Bill.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
