LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1834, Committee on Budget. Corrections: omnibus.
Existing law authorizes the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to design and construct new, or renovate existing, buildings and any necessary ancillary improvements, at facilities under the jurisdiction of the department to provide medical, dental, and mental health treatment or housing. Existing law limits financing pursuant to this authorization to specified facilities and projects, including all projects established by the board in the Health Care Facility Improvement Program. Existing law prohibits costs for design and construction, including, without limitation, renovation, and construction-related costs for all projects approved for financing by the State Public Works Board from exceeding $1,046,579,000. Existing law continuously appropriates the funds derived from interim financing, revenue bonds, negotiable notes, or negotiable bond anticipation notes issued pursuant to these provisions to the board on behalf of the department for these purposes.
This bill would increase that maximum amount of costs authorized for those purposes to $1,089,579,000. The bill would make the additional $43,000,000 available for allocation to any project established by the board in the Health Care Facility Improvement Program, but would impose restrictions on the allocations of the additional amount by requiring that each allocation be approved by the board and that not less than 20 days prior to the board’s approval, the Department of Finance report specified information regarding the project to the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee and the chairpersons of the respective fiscal committee of each house of the Legislature. By increasing the amount of funds that are continuously appropriated to the board on behalf of the department for these purposes, the bill would make an appropriation.
(2) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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