CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 1165


Introduced by Assembly Member Gloria Caballero

February 17, 2017


An act to amend Section 69.5 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, relating to taxation, to take effect immediately, tax levy. add Section 50717 to the Health and Safety Code, relating to housing.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1165, as amended, Gloria Caballero. Property taxation: base year value transfers. Migrant farm labor centers: eligibility for admission.
Existing law authorizes the Director of Housing and Community Development to contract with local public and private nonprofit agencies to provide housing services, including shelter, education, sanitation, and day care services, for migrant agricultural workers, through the development, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or operation of a migrant farm labor center.
This bill would prohibit the department from imposing a requirement upon an individual that the individual reside, either alone or together with his or her immediate family, outside any particular radius of a migrant farm labor center for any period of time to obtain eligibility for admission to that migrant farm labor center.

The California Constitution and existing property tax law authorize a person who is either severely disabled or over 55 years of age to transfer the base year value, as defined, of property that is eligible for the homeowners’ property tax exemption to a replacement dwelling that is of equal or lesser value located within the same county as the property from which the base year value is transferred, and if a county ordinance so providing has been adopted, to a replacement dwelling that is located in a different county.

This bill would expand this authorization to transfer the base year value of an original property to a person who is the parent or legal guardian of a severely and permanently disabled child and resides with the child.

By changing the manner in which local assessors assess property for property taxation purposes, 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, 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 the statutory provisions noted above.

Existing law requires the state to reimburse local agencies annually for certain property tax revenues lost as a result of any exemption or classification of property for purposes of ad valorem property taxation.

This bill would provide that, notwithstanding those provisions, no appropriation is made and the state shall not reimburse local agencies for property tax revenues lost by them pursuant to the bill.

This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy but would become operative only if Assembly Constitutional Amendment 12 of the 2017–18 Regular Session is approved by the voters.

Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YESNO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 50717 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

50717.
 The Department of Housing and Community Development shall not impose upon any individual a requirement that the individual reside, either alone or together with his or her immediate family, outside any particular radius of a migrant farm labor center for any period of time to obtain eligibility for admission to that migrant farm labor center.
