Introduced by Assembly Member Reyes Members Reyes and Rubio

February 17, 2017


An act to add Section 66014.1 to the Education Code, relating to public postsecondary education. An act to add Section 13823.19 to, and to add and repeal Section 13823.18 of, the Penal Code, relating to domestic violence.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1268, as amended, Reyes. Public postsecondary education: instruction in financial literacy. Domestic violence.
Existing law establishes the Office of Emergency Services Domestic Violence Advisory Council, and requires the Office of Emergency Services and the council to collaboratively administer the Comprehensive Statewide Domestic Violence Program, through which the office provides financial and technical assistance to local domestic violence centers in implementing specified services for victims of domestic violence and their children.
This bill would, on or before January 1, 2019, require the council, in consultation with the office and the Department of Justice, to provide a report to the Legislature that includes an evaluation of existing domestic violence assistance initiatives and policies in place to reduce domestic violence in the state. The bill would also create the California Domestic Violence Prevention Fund and require that moneys in the fund be used, upon appropriation by the Legislature, to provide grants to nonprofit organizations, local education agencies, and local governments for the purpose of funding initiatives to educate communities on domestic violence and the available resources for victims of domestic violence.

Existing law establishes the University of California, under the administration of the Regents of the University of California, the California State University, under the administration of the Trustees of the California State University, and the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges as the 3 segments of public postsecondary education in this state.

This bill would require the California State University and the California Community Colleges, and would request the University of California, to provide each student with at least 2 hours of instruction in financial literacy, except as specified. To the extent the bill would impose additional duties on community colleges, the 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.
