LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 130, Committee on Budget. Health and human services.
(1) Existing law establishes the county-administered In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program, under which qualified aged, blind, and disabled persons are provided with services in order to permit them to remain in their own homes and avoid institutionalization. Under existing law, a county board of supervisors may elect to contract with a nonprofit consortium to provide for the delivery of in-home supportive services, or establish, by ordinance, a public authority to provide for the delivery of in-home supportive services. Existing law requires, until January 1, 2020, a specified mediation process to be held if a public authority or nonprofit consortium fails to reach agreement on a bargaining contract with its in-home supportive services workers by January 1, 2018.
This bill would clarify that the specified mediation process is required if a public authority or nonprofit consortium and the employee organization have not reached an agreement on a bargaining contract with in-home supportive services workers by January 1, 2018.
Existing law requires the state and counties to share the annual cost of providing in-home supportive services and requires all counties to have a County IHSS Maintenance of Effort (MOE) commencing July 1, 2017, as prescribed. Existing law requires that a portion of IHSS costs that are the counties’ responsibility to be offset using a combination of General Fund moneys appropriated in the annual Budget Act and redirected 1991 Realignment Vehicle License Fee growth revenues, as specified.
Existing law requires the Controller to deposit into the Caseload Subaccount of the Sales Tax Growth Account of the Local Revenue Fund, from revenues deposited into the Sales Tax Growth Account, an amount determined by the Department of Finance that is sufficient to fund the net cost for the realigned portion of the county or city and county share of growth in social services caseloads and any share of growth from the previous year or years for which sufficient revenues were not available in the Caseload Subaccount, and requires the Controller to allocate funds to counties based on those calculations. Existing law requires the Controller, for the 2015– 16 fiscal year and fiscal years thereafter and after satisfying the above-mentioned obligation to deposit revenues into the Caseload Subaccount from the Sales Tax Growth Account, to deposit into the County Medical Services Program Growth Subaccount 4.027% of the amounts remaining and unexpended in the Sales Tax Growth Account, as specified.
This bill, for the 2016–17 fiscal year, would instead require the Controller to allocate to the social services account of each county and city and county the amount that would otherwise have been deposited into the County Medical Services Program Growth Subaccount, as specified.
Existing law requires the Controller, for the 2013–14 fiscal year and every fiscal year thereafter, to allocate a specified amount to the Mental Health Account and health account of each county, city, or city and county from the General Growth Subaccount of the Sales Tax Growth Account based on a schedule provided by the Department of Finance.
This bill, for the 2016–17 fiscal year, would instead require the Controller to allocate to the social services account of each county and city and county the amount that would otherwise have been deposited into the Mental Health Account and health account of each county, or city and county, as specified.
Existing law defines “growth” for purposes of the above-mentioned obligation to deposit revenues into the Caseload Subaccount from the Sales Tax Growth Account to mean the increase in the actual caseload expenditures for the prior fiscal year over the actual caseload expenditures for the fiscal year preceding the prior fiscal year for costs from specified social services programs, including the County IHSS MOE in effect on June 30, 2017. Commencing with the caseload growth calculation for the 2017–18 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, “growth” includes the County IHSS MOE costs to counties commencing on July 1, 2017, for the current fiscal year over the County IHSS MOE costs to counties for the prior fiscal year, less specified amounts.
This bill would revise these factors used to calculate the caseload growth, by changing the definition of “growth” to exclude the County IHSS MOE in effect on June 30, 2017, and by including offsets provided by General Fund moneys and redirected 1991 Realignment Vehicle License Fee growth revenues, and, for the 2016–17 fiscal year, the redirected sales tax growth revenues, as specified above, in the calculation of the County IHSS MOE costs. The bill would also require the State Controller, commencing with the caseload growth calculation for the 2017–18 fiscal year, to annually post on its Internet Web site the total amount of unfunded caseload growth by county.
(2) Existing law requires the State Department of Social Services to provide grants to qualifying nonprofit organizations for purposes of providing services that include, among other things, services relating to the application process for initial or renewal requests of deferred action under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
This bill would appropriate $20,000,000 to the department for immigration services funding to be available for payment to existing entities under contract pursuant to those provisions for work on behalf of clients involved in, applying for, or subject to, federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.
(3) Existing law provides for the licensure and regulation of health facilities, including skilled nursing facilities, by the State Department of Public Health. Among other requirements, these provisions generally require skilled nursing facilities to have a minimum number of nursing hours per patient day of 3.2 hours, and effective July 1, 2018, requires skilled nursing facilities, except as specified, to have a minimum number of direct care service hours, as defined, of 3.5 hours per patient day. Existing law requires the department to adopt regulations to create a waiver of the direct care service hour requirements.
Existing law requires the State Department of Health Care Services, in connection with its administration of the Medi-Cal program, to develop the Skilled Nursing Facility Quality and Accountability Supplemental Payment System, and requires the system to be utilized to, among other things, assign quality and accountability payments or penalties relating to direct care staffing levels at a skilled nursing facility, including the nursing hours or direct care service hours per patient per day requirements. Existing law establishes the Skilled Nursing Facility Quality and Accountability Special Fund in the State Treasury, which is a continuously appropriated fund that contains moneys from the assessment of specified administrative penalties and setasides of General Fund moneys, for the purposes of making the quality and accountability payments.
Existing law, to a specified extent, provides that a skilled nursing facility shall remain eligible to participate in the supplemental payment program so long as the facility meets applicable nursing hours per patient per day requirements that would have applied in the absence of the direct care service hour requirements described above. Existing law, to a specified extent, prohibits using compliance with the direct care service hour requirements to determine facility qualification for supplemental payments and instead requires the department to apply the nursing hour requirements for purposes of administering the supplemental payments until the performance period beginning in the 2019–20 fiscal year.
This bill, instead, would specify that for performance periods in the 2017–18 and 2018–19 fiscal years, a skilled nursing facility shall remain eligible to participate in the supplemental payment program so long as the facility meets applicable nursing hours per patient per day requirements. The bill would, for performance periods beginning in the 2019–20 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, provide that a skilled nursing facility that is granted a waiver of the direct care service hour requirements shall remain eligible to participate in the supplemental payment program so long as the facility meets the applicable nursing hour requirements that would have applied in the absence of the direct care service hour requirements described above for the duration of time for which the waiver is granted. By expanding the number of facilities that would be eligible to participate in the supplemental payment program and therefore expanding the payments from a continuously appropriated fund, the bill would make an appropriation.
(4) The Budget Act of 2017 appropriated a specified sum to the State Department of Social Services for local assistance relating to the CalWORKs program and other assistance payments.
This bill would require the department to allocate $5,400,000 from the General Fund moneys in the above-described appropriation to the City of San Jose for purposes of assisting homeless and low-income individuals displaced by the Coyote Creek flooding that occurred in February 2017, and, as a condition of receiving these funds, the bill would require the City of San Jose to provide quarterly reports to the department, as specified.
(5) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.

If the parties fail to agree on a mediator, the Public Employment Relations Board shall appoint one from the pool described in subdivision (c). The mediation shall be held no more than 15 business days from the date requested by either party.
(b) If the parties are unable to effect settlement through mediation as described in subdivision (a), the parties shall then submit their differences to factfinding, pursuant to Section 3505 and 3505.4 of the Government Code.

(1) The factfinding panel shall make findings of fact and recommend terms of settlement, which shall be advisory only, within 30 days after the panel is appointed by the Public Employment Relations Board.
(2) Within 15 days after the factfinding panel has released its findings of fact and recommended settlement terms, either party may request post-factfinding mediation consistent with Section 3505.2 of the Government Code, which shall be mandatory. If the parties fail to agree on a mediator, the Public Employment Relations Board shall appoint one from the pool described in subdivision (c).

SEC. 2.

 Section 12306.16 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read:

12306.16.
 (a) Commencing July 1, 2017, all counties shall have a County IHSS Maintenance of Effort (MOE).
(b) (1) (A) The statewide total County IHSS MOE base for the 2017–18 fiscal year shall be established at one billion seven hundred sixty-nine million four hundred forty-three thousand dollars ($1,769,443,000). This amount reflects the estimated county share of IHSS program base costs calculated pursuant to Sections 10101.1 and 12306, as those sections read on June 1, 2017, and reflected in the department’s 2017 May Revision local assistance subvention table for the 2017–18 fiscal year.
(B) If actual IHSS program base costs, as determined by the Department of Finance on or before May 14, 2018, attributable to the 2017–18 fiscal year are lower than the costs assumed in the 2017 May Revision local assistance subvention table, the statewide total County IHSS MOE base for the 2017–18 fiscal year shall be adjusted accordingly pursuant to Sections 10101.1 and 12306, as those sections read on June 1, 2017.
(2) The Department of Finance shall consult with the California State Association of Counties to determine each county’s share of the statewide total County IHSS MOE base amount. The County IHSS MOE base shall be unique to each individual county.
(3) (A) Administration expenditures are included in the County IHSS MOE and shall include both county administration, including costs associated with the IHSS case management, information, and payrolling system, and public authority administration.
(B) The amount of General Fund moneys available for county administration and public authority administration is limited to the amount of General Fund moneys appropriated for those specific purposes in the annual Budget Act, and increases to this amount do not impact the County IHSS MOE.
(C) To be eligible to receive its share of General Fund moneys appropriated in a fiscal year for county administration and public authority administration costs, the county is only required to expend the full amount of its County IHSS MOE that is attributable to county and public authority administration for that fiscal year and no additional county share of cost shall be required. The department shall consult with the California State Association of Counties to determine the county-by-county distribution of the amount of General Fund moneys appropriated in the annual Budget Act for county administration and public authority administration.
(D) Amounts expended by a county or public authority on administration in excess of the amount described in subparagraphs (A) and (B) shall not be attributed towards the county meeting its County IHSS MOE requirement.
(E) As part of the preparation of the 2018–19 Governor’s Budget, the department shall work with the California State Association of Counties, County Welfare Directors Association of California, and the Department of Finance to examine the workload and budget assumptions related to administration of the IHSS program for the 2017–18 and 2018–19 fiscal years.
(c) (1) On July 1, 2018, the County IHSS MOE base as specified in subdivision (b) shall be adjusted by an inflation factor of 5 percent.
(2) Beginning on July 1, 2019, and annually thereafter, the County IHSS MOE from the previous year shall be adjusted by an inflation factor of 7 percent.
(3) (A) Notwithstanding paragraphs (1) and (2), in fiscal years when the total of 1991 realignment revenues received pursuant to Sections 6051.2 and 6201.2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, for the prior fiscal year is less than the total received for the next prior fiscal year, the inflation factor shall be zero.
(B) Notwithstanding paragraphs (1) and (2), in fiscal years when the total of 1991 realignment revenues received pursuant to Sections 6051.2 and 6201.2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, for the prior fiscal year is equal to or up to 2 percent greater than the total received for the next prior fiscal year, the inflation factor shall be one-half of the amount specified in either paragraph (1) or (2).
(C) The Department of Finance shall provide notification to the appropriate fiscal committees of the Legislature and the California State Association of Counties by May 14 of each year of the inflation factor that will apply for the following fiscal year, based on the calculation in subparagraph (A) and (B).
(d) In addition to the adjustment in subdivision (c), the County IHSS MOE shall be adjusted for the annualized cost of increases in provider wages or health benefits that are locally negotiated, mediated, or imposed, on or after July 1, 2017, including any increases in provider wages or health benefits adopted by ordinance pursuant to Article 1 (commencing with Section 9100) of Chapter 2 of Division 9 of the Elections Code.
(1) (A) If the department approves an increase in provider wages or health benefits that are locally negotiated, mediated, imposed, or adopted by ordinance pursuant to Section 12306.1, the state shall pay 65 percent, and the affected county shall pay 35 percent, of the nonfederal share of the cost increase in accordance with subparagraph (B).
(B) With respect to any increase in provider wages or health benefits approved on or after July 1, 2017, pursuant to subparagraph (A), the state shall participate in that increase as provided in subparagraph (A) up to the amount specified in paragraphs (1), (2), and (3) of subdivision (d) of Section 12306.1. The county shall pay the entire nonfederal share of any cost increase exceeding the amount specified in paragraphs (1), (2), and (3) of subdivision (d) of Section 12306.1.
(C) With respect to an increase in benefits, other than individual health benefits, locally negotiated, mediated, or imposed by a county, public authority, or nonprofit consortium, or adopted by ordinance, the county’s County IHSS MOE shall include a one-time adjustment equal to 35 percent of the nonfederal share of the increased benefit costs.
(D) The county share of increased expenditures pursuant to subparagraphs (A) to (C), inclusive, shall be included in the County IHSS MOE, in addition to the amount established under subdivisions (b) and (c). For any increase in provider wages or health benefits, or increase in other benefits pursuant to subparagraph (C), that becomes effective on a date other than July 1, the Department of Finance shall adjust the county’s County IHSS MOE to reflect the annualized cost of the county’s share of the nonfederal cost of the wage or health benefit increase. This adjustment shall be calculated based on the county’s 2017–18 paid IHSS hours and the appropriate cost-sharing ratio as grown by the applicable number of inflation factors pursuant to subdivision (c) that have occurred up to and including the fiscal year in which the increase becomes effective.
(2) (A) If the department does not approve the increase in provider wages or health benefits, or increase in other benefits pursuant to subparagraph (C) of paragraph (1), that are locally negotiated, mediated, imposed, or adopted by ordinance pursuant to Section 12306.1 or paragraph (3), the county shall pay the entire nonfederal share of the cost increases.
(B) The county share of increased expenditures pursuant to subparagraph (A) shall be included in the County IHSS MOE, in addition to the amount established under subdivisions (b) and (c). For any increase in provider wages or health benefits that becomes effective on a date other than July 1, the Department of Finance shall adjust the county’s County IHSS MOE to reflect the annualized cost of the county’s share of the nonfederal cost of the wage or health benefit increase. This adjustment shall be calculated based on the county’s 2017–18 paid IHSS hours and the appropriate county sharing ratio as grown by the appropriate number of applicable inflation factors pursuant to subdivision (c) that have occurred up to and including the fiscal year in which the increase becomes effective.
(3) In addition to the rate approval requirements specified in subdivisions (a) to (c), inclusive, of Section 12306.1, it shall be presumed by the department that rates and other economic terms that are locally negotiated, mediated, imposed, or adopted by ordinance are approved.
(4) (A) With respect to any rate increases to existing contracts that a county has already entered into pursuant to Section 12302, the state shall pay 65 percent, and the affected county shall pay 35 percent, of the nonfederal share of the amount of the rate increase up to the maximum amounts established pursuant to Sections 12302.1 and 12303. The county shall pay the entire nonfederal share of any portion of the rate increase exceeding the maximum amount established pursuant to Sections 12302.1 and 12303. This adjustment shall be calculated based on the county’s 2017–18 paid IHSS contract hours, or the paid contract hours in the fiscal year in which the contract becomes effective if the contract becomes effective on or after July 1, 2017, using the appropriate cost-sharing ratio as grown by the applicable number of inflation factors pursuant to subdivision (c) that have occurred up to and including the fiscal year in which the increase becomes effective.
(B) With respect to rates for new contracts entered into by a county pursuant to Section 12302 on or after July 1, 2017, the state shall pay 65 percent, and the affected county shall pay 35 percent, of the nonfederal share of the difference between the locally negotiated, mediated, imposed, or adopted by ordinance, provider wage and the contract rate for all of the hours of service to IHSS recipients to be provided under the contract up to the maximum amounts established pursuant to Sections 12302.1 and 12303. The county shall pay the entire nonfederal share of any portion of the contract rate exceeding the maximum amount established pursuant to Sections 12302.1 and 12303. This adjustment shall be calculated based on the county’s paid contract hours in the fiscal year in which the contract becomes effective using the appropriate cost-sharing ratio.
(C) The county share of these expenditures shall be included in the County IHSS MOE, in addition to the amounts established under subdivisions (b) and (c). For any rate increases for existing contracts or rates for new contracts, entered into by a county pursuant to Section 12302 on or after July 1, 2017, that become effective on a date other than July 1, the Department of Finance shall adjust the county’s County IHSS MOE to reflect the annualized cost of the county’s share of the nonfederal cost of the increase or rate for new contracts. This adjustment shall be calculated as follows:
(i) For a contract described in subparagraph (A), the first-year cost of the amount of the rate increase calculated using the pro rata share of the number of hours of service provided in the contract for the fiscal year in which the increase became effective.
(ii) For a contract described in subparagraph (B), the first-year cost of the difference between the locally negotiated, mediated, imposed, or adopted by ordinance, provider wage and the contract rate for all of the hours of service to IHSS recipients calculated using the pro rata share of the number of hours of service provided in the contract for the fiscal year in which the contract became effective.
(5) In the event the state ceases to receive enhanced federal financial participation for the provision of services pursuant to Section 1915(k) of the federal Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. Sec. 1396n(k)), the County IHSS MOE shall be adjusted one time to reflect a 35-percent share of the enhanced federal financial participation that would have been received pursuant to Section 1915(k) of the federal Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. Sec. 1396n(k)) for the fiscal year in which the state ceases to receive the enhanced federal financial participation.
(6) The County IHSS MOE shall not be adjusted for increases in individual provider wages that are locally negotiated pursuant to subdivision (a) of, and paragraphs (1) and (2) of subdivision (d) of, Section 12306.1 when the increase has been specifically negotiated to take effect at the same time as, and to be the same amount as, state minimum wage increases.
(7) (A) A county may negotiate a wage supplement. The first time the wage supplement is applied, the county’s County IHSS MOE shall include a one-time adjustment by the amount of the increase, as specified in subparagraphs (A), (B), and (C) of paragraph (1).
(B) A wage supplement negotiated pursuant to subparagraph (A) shall subsequently be applied to the county individual provider wage when the county individual provider wage meets all of the following criteria:
(i) The increase to the county individual provider wage takes effect at the same time as the state minimum wage increase.
(ii) The increase to the county individual provider wage is the same amount as the state minimum wage increase.
(iii) The minimum wage increase exceeds the county individual provider wage prior to applying the minimum wage increase.
(8) The Department of Finance shall consult with the California State Association of Counties to develop the computations for the annualized amounts pursuant to this subdivision.
(e) The County IHSS MOE shall only be adjusted pursuant to subdivisions (c) and (d).
(f) A county’s County IHSS MOE costs paid to the state shall be reduced by the amount of any General Fund offset provided to the county pursuant to Section 12306.17.

(o) The department shall seek necessary approvals from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to implement this section. The department shall implement this section only in a manner that is consistent with federal Medicaid law and regulations, and only to the extent that approval is obtained from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and federal financial participation is available.
(p) In implementing this section, the department and the State Department of Public Health may contract as necessary, with California’s Medicare Quality Improvement Organization, or other entities deemed qualified by the department or the State Department of Public Health, not associated with a skilled nursing facility, to assist with development, collection, analysis, and reporting of the performance data pursuant to subdivision (i), and with demonstrated expertise in long-term care quality, data collection or analysis, and accountability performance measurement models pursuant to subdivision (i).

For the 2013–14 and 2014–15 rate years, any rate increase shall be reduced by the amounts described in subdivisions (j) to (l), inclusive.
(s) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, but only to the extent the department determines federal financial participation is available and not otherwise jeopardized, for performance periods in the 2017–18 and 2018–19 fiscal years, a skilled nursing facility shall remain eligible to participate in the supplemental payment program pursuant to this section so long as the facility meets the applicable nursing hours per patient per day requirements pursuant to Section 1276.5 of the Health and Safety Code.

17605.
 (a) For the 1992–93 fiscal year, the Controller shall deposit into the Caseload Subaccount of the Sales Tax Growth Account of the Local Revenue Fund, from revenues deposited into the Sales Tax Growth Account, an amount to be determined by the Department of Finance, that represents the sum of the shortfalls between the actual realignment revenues received by each county and each city and county from the Social Services Subaccount of the Local Revenue Fund in the 1991–92 fiscal year and the net costs incurred by each of those counties and cities and counties in the fiscal year for the programs described in Sections 10101, 10101.1, 11322.2, 12306, 15200, 15204.2, and 18906.5, and former Section 11322. The Department of Finance shall provide the Controller with an allocation schedule on or before August 15, 1993, that shall be used by the Controller to allocate funds deposited to the Caseload Subaccount under this subdivision. The Controller shall allocate these funds no later than August 27, 1993.
(b) (1) (A) For the 1993–94 fiscal year and fiscal years thereafter, the Controller shall deposit into the Caseload Subaccount of the Sales Tax Growth Account of the Local Revenue Fund, from revenues deposited into the Sales Tax Growth Account, an amount determined by the Department of Finance, in consultation with the appropriate state departments and the California State Association of Counties, that is sufficient to fund the net cost for the realigned portion of the county or city and county share of growth in social services caseloads, as specified in paragraph (2), and any share of growth from the previous year or years for which sufficient revenues were not available in the Caseload Subaccount. The Department of Finance shall provide the Controller with an allocations schedule on or before March 15 of each year. The schedule shall be used by the Controller to allocate funds deposited into the Caseload Subaccount under this subdivision.
(B) It is the intent of the Legislature that counties shall receive allocations from the Caseload Subaccount as soon as possible after funds are received in the Sales Tax Growth Account. The Department of Finance shall recommend to the Legislature, by January 10, 2005, a procedure to expedite the preparation and provision of the allocations schedule described in subparagraph (A) and the allocation of funds by the Controller.
(2) (A) (i) For the 1992–93 fiscal year through the caseload growth calculation for the 2017–18 fiscal year, “growth” means, for purposes of this subdivision, the increase in the actual caseload expenditures for the prior fiscal year over the actual caseload expenditures for the fiscal year preceding the prior fiscal year for the programs described in Sections 10101, 12306, 15200, 15204.2, and 18906.5, and for which funds are allocated pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 123940 of the Health and Safety Code.
(ii) Commencing with the caseload growth calculation for the 2018–19 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, for purposes of this subdivision, “growth” means the increase in the actual caseload expenditures for the prior fiscal year over the actual caseload expenditures for the fiscal year preceding the prior fiscal year for the programs described in Sections 10101, 15200, 15204.2, and 18906.5, and for which funds are allocated pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 123940 of the Health and Safety Code.
(B) Commencing with the caseload growth calculation for the 2017–18 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, in addition to subparagraph (A), “growth” shall also include the following:
(i) The additional County IHSS MOE costs to counties pursuant to Sections 12306.16 and 12306.17 for the current fiscal year over the County IHSS MOE costs to counties for the prior fiscal year, less the amount of sales tax revenues received pursuant to subdivision (g) of Section 17600.15 to fund the amount specified in subparagraph (B) of paragraph (3) of subdivision (f) of Section 17600.15 and the amount of vehicle license fee revenues received pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 17606.20, and, for the 2016–17 fiscal year, the amount of sales tax revenues received pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 17605.07 and subdivision (g) of Section 17606.10.
(ii) Any additional County IHSS MOE costs to counties pursuant to Sections 12306.16 and 12306.17 for the prior fiscal year over the County IHSS MOE costs to counties for the preceding prior fiscal year that were not included in caseload growth calculation pursuant to clause (i) from the prior caseload growth calculation.
(3) (A) For the 1993–94 fiscal year through the 2016–17 fiscal year, the difference in caseload expenditures between the fiscal years shall be multiplied by the factors that represent the change in county or city and county shares of the realigned programs. These products shall then be added or subtracted, taking into account whether the county’s or city and county’s share of costs was increased or decreased as a result of realignment, to yield each county’s or city and county’s allocation for caseload growth. Allocations for counties or cities and counties with allocations of less than zero shall be set at zero.
(B) For the caseload growth calculation for the 2017–18 fiscal year the difference in caseload expenditures between the fiscal years as determined by clause (i) of subparagraph (A) of paragraph (2) shall be multiplied by the factors that represent the change in county or city and county shares of the realignment programs. These products shall then be added or subtracted, taking into account whether the county’s or city and county’s share of costs was increased or decreased as a result of realignment, and added to the amounts determined pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (2) to yield each county’s or city and county’s allocation for caseload growth. Allocations for counties or cities and counties with allocations of less than zero shall be set at zero.
(C) Commencing with the caseload growth calculation for the 2018–19 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the difference in caseload expenditures between the fiscal years as determined by clause (ii) of subparagraph (A) of paragraph (2) shall be multiplied by the factors that represent the change in county or city and county shares of the realignment programs. These products shall then be added or subtracted, taking into account whether the county’s or city and county’s share of costs was increased or decreased as a result of realignment, and added to the amounts determined pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (2) to yield each county’s or city and county’s allocation for caseload growth. Allocations for counties or cities and counties with allocations of less than zero shall be set at zero.
(c) Annually, the Controller shall allocate, to the local health and welfare trust fund social services account, the amounts deposited and remaining unexpended and unreserved in the Caseload Subaccount, pursuant to the schedules of allocations of caseload growth described in subdivision (b), within 45 days of receiving those schedules from the Department of Finance. If there are insufficient funds to fully satisfy all caseload growth obligations, each county’s or city and county’s allocation for each program specified in subdivision (d) shall be prorated.
(d) Prior to allocating funds pursuant to subdivision (b), to the extent that funds are available from funds deposited in the Caseload Subaccount in the Sales Tax Growth Account in the Local Revenue Fund, the Controller shall allocate moneys to counties or cities and counties to correct any inequity or inequities in the computation of the child welfare services portion of the schedule required by subdivision (a) of Section 17602.
(e) (1) For the 2003–04 fiscal year, no Sales Tax Growth Account funds shall be allocated pursuant to this chapter until the caseload portion of the base of each county’s social services account in the county’s health and welfare trust fund is funded to the level of the 2001–02 fiscal year. Funds to meet this requirement shall be allocated from the Sales Tax Account of the Local Revenue Fund. If sufficient funds are not available in the Sales Tax Account of the Local Revenue Fund to achieve that funding level in the 2003–04 fiscal year, this requirement shall be funded in each succeeding fiscal year in which there are sufficient funds in the Sales Tax Account of the Local Revenue Fund until the caseload base funding level for which each county would have otherwise been eligible in accordance with subdivision (e) of Section 17602 for that year.
(2) The caseload portion of each county’s social services account base shall be determined by subtracting its noncaseload portion of the base, as determined by the Department of Finance in its annual calculation of General Growth Account allocations, from the total base of each county’s social services account for the 2001–02 fiscal year.
(f) Commencing with the caseload growth calculation for the 2017–18 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter, the Controller shall annually post on his or her Internet Web site the total amount of unfunded caseload growth by county.
