LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1148, Beth Gaines. Republican county central committees: Placer County.
Existing law requires that candidates for the Republican county central committee appear on the local ballot and specifies the manner of their election. In a county containing less than 5 Assembly districts, a committee must be elected by supervisor districts, in accordance with a specified formula. In a county containing more than 4 and less than 20 Assembly districts, a committee must be elected from Assembly districts and consist of 6 members from each district.
This bill would impose a state-mandated local program by requiring that, notwithstanding the above, the committee in Placer County be elected by supervisor districts, and that the committee be composed of 7 members elected from each of the supervisor districts.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 7400.2 is added to the Elections Code, to read:

7400.2.
 Notwithstanding Sections 7400 and 7401, in the County of Placer, the county central committee shall be elected by supervisor districts and shall be composed of seven members elected from each of the supervisor districts.

SEC. 2.

 If the Commission on State Mandates determines that this act contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement to local agencies and school districts for those costs shall be made pursuant to Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code.
