(2) For the 1992–93 fiscal year and fiscal years thereafter until the commencement of the 2013–14 fiscal year, the allocations to each county and city and county shall equal the amounts received in the prior fiscal year by each county, city, and city and county from the Sales Tax Account and the Sales Tax Growth Account of the Local Revenue Fund into the health and welfare trust fund.

(b) (1) For the 2013–14 fiscal year, on the 27th day of each month, the Controller shall allocate, in the same proportion as funds in paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) were allocated, to each county’s and city and county’s local health and welfare trust fund health accounts, the amounts deposited and remaining unexpended and unreserved on the 15th day of the month in the Health Subaccount of the Sales Tax Account of the Local Revenue Fund.

(2) (A) Beginning January 2014 and for the remainder of the 2013–14 fiscal year, on or before the 27th day of each month, the Controller shall transfer to the Family Support Subaccount from the Health Subaccount amounts determined pursuant to a schedule prepared by the Department of Finance in consultation with the California State Association of Counties. Cumulatively, no more than three hundred million dollars ($300,000,000) shall be transferred.

(B) Every month, after the transfers in subparagraph (A) have occurred, the remainder shall be allocated to the counties and cities and counties in the same proportions as funds in paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) were allocated.

(C) For counties participating in the County Medical Services Program, transfers from each county shall not be greater than the monthly amount the county would otherwise pay pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (j) of Section 16809 for participation in the County Medical Services Program. Any difference between the amount paid by these counties and the proportional share of the three hundred million dollars ($300,000,000) calculated as payable by these counties and the County Medical Services Program shall be paid from the funds available for allocation to the County Medical Services Program in accordance with this code.

(3) For the 2013–14 fiscal year, the Controller, using the same timing and criteria used in paragraph (1), shall allocate to each city, not to include a city and county, funds that shall equal the amounts received in the prior fiscal year by each city from the Sales Tax Account and the Sales Tax Growth Account of the Local Revenue Fund into the health and welfare trust fund.

(c) (1) For the 2014–15 fiscal year and for every fiscal year thereafter, the Department of Finance, in consultation with the California State Association of Counties, shall calculate the amount each county or city and county shall contribute to the Family Support Subaccount in accordance with Section 17600.50.

(2) On or before the 27th day of each month, the Controller shall transfer, based on a schedule prepared by the Department of Finance in consultation with the California State Association of Counties, from the funds deposited and remaining unexpended and unreserved on the 15th day of the month in the Health Subaccount of the Sales Tax Account of the Local Revenue Fund to the Family Support Subaccount, funds that equal, over the course of the year, the amount determined in paragraph (1) pursuant to a schedule provided by the Department of Finance.

(3) After the transfer in paragraph (2) has occurred, the Controller shall allocate on or before the 27th day of each month to the Health Account in the local health and welfare trust fund of every county and city and county from a schedule prepared by the Department of Finance, in consultation with the California State Association of Counties, any funds remaining in the Health Account from the funds deposited and remaining unexpended and unreserved on the 15th day of the month in the Health Subaccount of the Sales Tax Account of the Local Revenue Fund. The schedule shall be prepared as the allocations would have been distributed pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (a).

(4) For the 2014–15 fiscal year and for every fiscal year thereafter, the Controller, using the same timing and criteria as had been used in paragraph (2) of subdivision (a), shall allocate to each city, not to include a city and county, funds that equal the amounts received in the prior fiscal year by each city from the Sales Tax Account and the Sales Tax Growth Account of the Local Revenue Fund into the health and welfare trust fund.
