Assembly Bill No. 1666
CHAPTER 93

[ Approved by Governor  July 25, 2016. Filed with Secretary of State  July 25, 2016. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1666, Brough. Community facilities districts: reports.
The Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act of 1982 authorizes the formation of a community facilities district to finance various services. The act requires a community facilities district formed after January 1, 1992, to prepare, if requested by a person who resides in or owns property in the district and within 120 days after the last day of each fiscal year, a separate document titled an “Annual Report.” The act requires a legislative body to report specific information regarding the sale of bonds to the California Debt and Investment Advisory Commission (CDIAC). Other existing law requires each county, city, and special district that assesses a parcel tax to provide specific information to the Controller in connection with reports compiled and published by the Controller on the financial transactions of counties, cities, and special districts.
This bill would require a legislative body that has an Internet Web site, within 7 months after the last day of each fiscal year of the district, to display prominently on its Internet Web site a copy of that annual report, if requested, a copy of the report to CDIAC, and a copy of the report to the Controller. By increasing the duties of local officials, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
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 no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 53343.2 is added to the Government Code, to read:

53343.2.
 A local agency that has an Internet Web site, within seven months after the last day of each fiscal year of the district, shall display prominently on its Internet Web site all of the following information:
(a) A copy of an annual report for that fiscal year if requested pursuant to Section 53343.1.
(b) A copy of the report provided to the California Debt and Investment Advisory Commission pursuant to Section 53359.5.
(c) A copy of the report provided to the Controller’s office pursuant to Section 12463.2.

SEC. 2.

 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because a local agency or school district has the authority to levy service charges, fees, or assessments sufficient to pay for the program or level of service mandated by this act, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code.
