Existing law, with limited exceptions, requires each city and county to submit to the Controller a complete report of expenditures for street and road purposes by October 1 of each year relative to the preceding fiscal year ending on June 30.
This bill would instead require the report to be submitted to the Controller within 7 months after the close of the fiscal year adopted by a county, city, or city and county. The bill would make other conforming changes. by December 1 of each year relative to the preceding fiscal year ending on June 30.

This bill would delete the requirement that this tabulation and compilation report be distributed to the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, the Members of the Legislature, the department, the California State Auditor, the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, the cities, and the counties and to any legislative committee charged with the investigation of streets, roads, highways, or bridges in this state, and would instead require that the Controller publish and make the report publicly available on its Internet Web site in a format that may be printed and downloaded.

Existing law establishes the California Uniform Construction Cost Accounting Commission, comprised of 14 members who are charged with, among other duties, recommending for adoption by the Controller, uniform construction cost accounting procedures for implementation by local agencies in contracts for construction on public projects. Existing law requires the Controller, after determining that the recommended uniform construction cost accounting procedures will serve the best interests of the state and public agencies, and upon formal adoption, to promulgate the uniform procedure for all public agencies electing to participate in the uniform procedure.

This bill would require the Controller to adjust related timelines in the uniform procedure to conform with the submission by a governing body of a county, city, or city and county of its expenditures for street and road purposes during the preceding fiscal year.
