LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1897, as amended, Committee on Appropriations. California Victim Compensation Board. Board: claim.

Existing law generally provides for the reimbursement of victims and derivative victims of specified types of crimes by the California Victim Compensation Board from the Restitution Fund, a continuously appropriated fund, for specified losses suffered as a result of those crimes. Existing law sets forth eligibility requirements and limits on the amount of compensation the board may award, and requires the application for compensation to be verified under penalty of perjury.

This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to appropriate funds for the payment of claims against the state approved by the California Victim Compensation Board.

Existing law requires the California Victim Compensation Board, in cases in which evidence shows that a crime with which a claimant was charged was either not committed at all, or not committed by the claimant, to report the facts of the case and its conclusions to the Legislature with a recommendation that the Legislature make an appropriation for the purpose of indemnifying the claimant for the injury.
This bill would appropriate $92,260 from the General Fund to the executive officer of the board for payment of the claim of a specified individual.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
