LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2117, Achadjian. Santa Barbara San Luis Obispo Regional Health Authority.
Existing law authorizes the Board of Supervisors of the County of Santa Barbara to order the formation of a health authority and authorizes the Board of Supervisors of the County of San Luis Obispo to authorize the provision of medical services by the authority within the County of San Luis Obispo. Existing law authorizes the Board of Supervisors of either the County of San Luis Obispo or the County of Santa Barbara, or the board of directors of the authority, to terminate the authority’s operation of a health care system or systems in the County of San Luis Obispo, as specified. Existing law authorizes the Board of Supervisors of the County of Santa Barbara to order the dissolution of the authority by declaring that there is no need for the authority to function in the county.
This bill would instead authorize the boards of supervisors of the County of Santa Barbara and the County of San Luis Obispo to order the dissolution of the authority, and would require both boards of supervisors to order the dissolution of the authority in order for the dissolution to become effective.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 101780 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to read:
