LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2731, Perea. County of Fresno: maintenance of effort: streets and roads allocations.
Existing law gives the County of Fresno until June 30, 2020, to meet the maintenance of effort requirement associated with its receipt of streets and roads funds from gasoline sales tax revenues in the Transportation Investment Fund in the 2009–10 fiscal year, as long as it continues to provide medical services to indigent individuals and undocumented individuals consistent with the eligibility and benefit levels in effect in the 2013–14 fiscal year.
This bill would instead give the County of Fresno until June 30, 2020, to meet that maintenance of effort requirement if it expends no less than $5.5 million of funds to provide specialty medical services in conjunction with federally funded clinics to indigent individuals.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
Vote: 2/3   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 8 of Chapter 27 of the Statutes of 2014 is amended to read:

Sec. 8.

 (a) Notwithstanding subdivision (f) of Section 7104.2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code or any other provision of law, the County of Fresno shall have until June 30, 2020, to meet the maintenance of effort requirement applicable to counties in order to receive a streets and roads allocation from the Transportation Investment Fund for the 2009–10 fiscal year, as long as the County of Fresno expends no less than five million five hundred thousand dollars ($5,500,000) of funds to provide specialty medical services in conjunction with federally qualified health clinics, or other federally funded clinics, to indigent individuals, including, but not limited to, those individuals who are ineligible for full-scope Medi-Cal.
(b) Subdivision (a) shall not be construed to require the County of Fresno to expend more than a total of five million five hundred thousand dollars ($5,500,000) on the medical services described in subdivision (a).
(c) The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique transportation funding needs in the County of Fresno.
