Assembly Bill
No. 1862


Introduced by Assembly Member Melendez

February 19, 2014


An act to amend Section 69999.26 of the Education Code, relating to postsecondary education repeal and add Section 25060 of the Government Code, relating to county government.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1862, as amended, Melendez. Postsecondary education: financial aid. County board of supervisors: vacancy: appointment.
Existing law requires the Governor to fill a vacancy on any county board of supervisors.
This bill would, instead, authorize a quorum of a board of supervisors, for 90 days after the date of the vacancy, to appoint an individual to fill the vacancy, and, if the board does not, would require the Governor to make the appointment.

Existing law establishes various student financial aid programs under the administration of the Student Aid Commission, and establishes eligibility requirements for the receipt of awards under those programs by participating students attending qualifying institutions. Existing law, until July 1, 2019, establishes the California National Guard Education Assistance Award Program, which provides financial aid to qualifying members of the California National Guard, the State Military Reserve, and the Naval Militia, under the administration of the commission. Existing law requires the Legislative Analyst, on or before January 1, 2016, to prepare and submit to the Legislature a report on the program.

This bill would instead require the Legislative Analyst to submit that report to the Legislature on or before January 31, 2015.
