15100.
  

A revolving fund in the State Treasury is hereby created to be known as the Welfare Advance Fund. All moneys in the fund are appropriated for the purpose of making payments or advances to counties, Indian tribes, the federal Social Security Administration, or other federal, state, or governmental entities, of the state and federal shares of local assistance programs, and for the payment of refunds. In addition, the fund may be used for the purpose of making a consolidated payment, comprised of the state and federal shares of local assistance costs, to any payee associated with programs administered by the State Department of Social Services.

Payments or advances of funds to counties, Indian tribes, the federal Social Security Administration, or other federal, state, or governmental entities, or to any payee, which payments or advances are properly chargeable to appropriations made from other funds in the State Treasury, may be made by Controller’s warrant drawn against the Welfare Advance Fund. For every warrant so issued, the several purposes and amounts for which it was drawn shall be identified for the payee.

The amounts to be transferred to the Welfare Advance Fund at any time shall be determined by the department, and, upon order of the Controller, shall be transferred from the funds and appropriations otherwise properly chargeable therewith to the Welfare Advance Fund.

Refunds of amounts disbursed from the Welfare Advance Fund shall, on order of the Controller, be deposited in the Welfare Advance Fund, and, on order of the Controller, shall be transferred therefrom to the funds and appropriations from which the amounts were originally derived. Claims for amounts erroneously paid into the Welfare Advance Fund shall be submitted by the department to the Controller who, if he or she approves the claims, shall draw his or her warrant in payment thereof against the Welfare Advance Fund.

All amounts increasing the cash balance in the Welfare Advance Fund, which were derived from the cancellation of warrants issued therefrom, shall, on order of the Controller, be transferred to and in augmentation of the appropriations from which the amounts were originally derived.

(Amended by Stats. 2003, Ch. 323, Sec. 4. Effective January 1, 2004.)
