(b) Beginning January 1, 2013, and each January 1 thereafter, the department may adjust each of the fees specified in this section by increasing each fee by an amount not to exceed the percentage that the Consumer Price Index (United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, West Region, All Urban Consumers, All Items, Base Period 1982-84 =100) for the preceding April 2011, and each April annually thereafter, has increased under the same index over the month of April 2010, which shall be the base period. No fee shall be decreased pursuant to this adjustment below the fee currently in effect on each December 31. In the event that this index is discontinued, the department shall consult with the Department of Finance to convert the increase calculations to an index then available. When approved by the Department of Finance, the new index shall replace the discontinued index.
(c) The department shall calculate the percentage increase as specified in subdivision (b) and shall apply this increase to each fee. The increase to each fee shall be rounded to the nearest whole dollar. The adjusted fee list shall be published by the department department, posted on the department’s Internet Web site, and transmitted to the Legislature for approval as part of the department’s budget submission for the fiscal year in which the adjusted fees would be implemented. This adjustment of fees and publication of the adjusted fee list is not subject to the requirements of Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code.
