CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2013–2014 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill No. 1421


Introduced by Senator Fuller
(Coauthor: Senator Vidak)

February 21, 2014


An act to add Section 17070.72 to the Education Code, relating to school facilities.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1421, as amended, Fuller. School facilities: schoolsites on military bases.
Existing law establishes a system of public elementary and secondary schools in this state, and provides for the funding of the construction of new school facilities and the modernization of existing facilities. Existing law requires the State Allocation Board to apportion certain state funds to eligible school districts for school facilities. Existing federal law provides for construction funding assistance for schoolsites that are located on United States military bases and that meet specified criteria.
This bill would authorize the State Allocation Board, if requested by an applicant, to give priority on its Applications Received Beyond Bond Unfunded Approval-Lack of Authority List to applications submitted before May 1, 2014, for certain state funds for projects schools located on military installations that are eligible for specified federal school construction grants, except as specified. The bill would provide that a school district that requests this priority for an application shall not apply for school facilities state bond funds for the 3 years after the date the board grants priority for an application, as described above.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.
