LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 491, as introduced, Muratsuchi. California Civil Liberties Public Education Act.
The California Civil Liberties Public Education Act establishes a grant program, administered by the State Librarian, for the stated purpose of sponsoring educational activities and the development of educational materials to ensure that the events surrounding the exclusion, forced removal, and internment of citizens and permanent residents of Japanese ancestry will be remembered and so that the causes and circumstances of this and similar events may be illuminated and understood. The act provides that funding for the grant program is subject to an appropriation in the annual Budget Act or other act.
This bill instead would continuously appropriate $1,000,000 from the General Fund for each of 3 specified fiscal years to the State Librarian for the purposes of the grant program, thereby making an appropriation.
Vote: 2/3   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
