AB-93 Budget Act of 2015.(2015-2016)



SECTION 1.00.
 This act shall be known and may be cited as the “Budget Act of 2015.”
SEC. 1.50.
 (a) In accordance with Section 13338 of the Government Code, it is the intent of the Legislature that this act and other financial transactions authorized outside of this act utilize a coding scheme or structure compatible with the Governor’s Budget and the records of the Controller, and provide for the appropriation of federal funds received by the state and deposited in the State Treasury.
(b) Essentially, the format and style are as follows:
(1) Appropriation item numbers have a structure which is common to all the state’s fiscal systems. The meaning of this structure is as follows:
2720—​Business Unit (known as organization code in legacy systems, indicates the department or entity) (e.g., 2720 represents the Department of the California Highway Patrol)
001—​Reference Code (indicates whether the item is from the Budget Act or some other source and its character (e.g., state operations))
0044—​Fund Code (e.g., 0044 represents the Motor Vehicle Account, State Transportation Fund)
(2) Appropriation items are organized in Business Unit order.
(3) All the appropriation items, reappropriation items, and reversion items, if any, for each business unit are adjacent to one another.
(4) Federal funds received by the state and deposited in the State Treasury are appropriated in separate items.
(c) The Department of Finance may authorize revisions to the codes or structures used in this act or used in other spending authority outside of this act to provide compatibility between the codes or structures used in this act and those used in the Governor’s Budget and in the records of the Controller.
(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Department of Finance may revise the schedule of any appropriation made in this act where the revision is of a technical nature and is consistent with legislative intent. These revisions may include, but shall not be limited to, the distribution of any unallocated amounts within an appropriation and the adjustment of schedules to facilitate departmental accounting operations. These revisions shall include a certification that the revisions comply with the intent and limitation of expenditures as appropriated by the Legislature.
(e) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, and in accordance with legislative intent, the Department of Finance may authorize technical changes or corrections in the Financial Information System for California (FI$Cal) resulting from or related to the conversion or implementation of FI$Cal, including, but not limited to, any of the following:
(1) Corrections to errors inadvertently created during the data conversion process from legacy systems into FI$Cal.
(2) Corrections or changes related to renumbering of programs and capital outlay projects. FI$Cal requires a different numbering scheme for the programs, elements, components, and tasks and projects. A new set of numbers is being utilized in FI$Cal different from what is reflected in prior budget acts and other authorizing sources. A comprehensive crosswalk is being utilized to facilitate the translation from programs, elements, components, and tasks to programs and subprograms and projects.
(3) Corrections or changes necessary to ensure compatibility among the legacy systems of the State Controller and departments, and with that of the FI$Cal system. Multiple coding systems and structures (or chart of accounts) are being utilized during the transition period and until a department is implemented in FI$Cal.
SEC. 1.80.
 (a) The following sums of money and those appropriated by any other sections of this act, or so much thereof as may be necessary unless otherwise provided herein, are hereby appropriated for the use and support of the State of California for the 2015–16 fiscal year beginning July 1, 2015, and ending June 30, 2016. All of these appropriations, unless otherwise provided herein, shall be paid out of the General Fund in the State Treasury.
(b) All capital outlay appropriations and reappropriations, unless otherwise provided herein, are available as follows:
(1) Studies, preliminary plans, working drawings, performance criteria, and minor capital outlay appropriations are available for encumbrance until June 30, 2016.
(2) Construction and design-build appropriations are available for encumbrance until June 30, 2018, if allocated through fund transfer or approval to proceed to bid or approval to solicit design-build bids or proposals by the Department of Finance by June 30, 2016. Any funds not allocated by June 30, 2016, shall revert on July 1, 2016, to the fund from which the appropriation was made.
(3) All other capital outlay appropriations are available for encumbrance until June 30, 2018.
(c) Whenever by constitutional or statutory provision the revenues or receipts of any institution, department, board, bureau, commission, officer, employee, or other agency, or any moneys in any special fund created by law therefor, are to be used for salaries, support, or any proper purpose, expenditures shall be made therefrom for any such purpose only to the extent of the amount therein appropriated, unless otherwise stated herein.

 (a) It is the intent of the Legislature, in enacting this section, to provide flexibility for the administrative approval of intraschedule transfers within individual items of appropriation in those instances where the transfers are necessary for the efficient and cost-effective implementation of the programs, projects, and functions funded by this act. No transfer shall be authorized under this section to either eliminate any program, project, or function, except when implementation is found to be no longer feasible in light of changing circumstances or new information, or establish any new program, project, or function.
(b) The Director of Finance may, pursuant to a request by the officer, department, division, bureau, board, commission, or other agency to which an appropriation is made by this act, authorize the augmentation of the amount available for expenditure in any schedule set forth for that appropriation, by making a transfer from any of the other designated programs, projects, or functions within the same schedule. No intraschedule transfer may be made under this section to fund any capital outlay purpose, regardless of whether budgeted in a capital outlay or a local assistance appropriation. Upon the conclusion of the 2015–16 fiscal year, the Director of Finance shall furnish the chairpersons of the committees in each house of the Legislature that consider appropriations and the State Budget, and the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, with a report on all authorizations given pursuant to this section during that fiscal year.

Augmentations for items which can be deferred to the 2016–17 fiscal year should be included in the administration’s 2016–17 fiscal year budget proposals.
(b) The Director of Finance may authorize the augmentation of the amount available for expenditure for any program, project, or function in the schedule of any appropriation in this act or any additional program, project, or function equal to the amount of any additional, unanticipated funds that he or she estimates will be received by the state during the 2015–16 fiscal year from any agency of local government or the federal government, or from any other nonstate source, provided that the additional funding meets all of the following requirements:

(2) The funds are made available to the state under conditions permitting their use only for a specified purpose, and the additional expenditure proposed under this section would apply to that specified funding purpose.
(3) Acceptance of the additional funding does not impose on the state any requirement to commit or expend new state funds for any program or purpose.
(4) The need exists to expend the additional funding during the 2015–16 fiscal year.
(c) In order to receive consideration for an augmentation, an agency shall either (1) notify the director within 45 days of receiving official notice of the availability of additional, unanticipated funds, or (2) explain in writing to the director why that notification was infeasible or impractical.

(b) Subdivision (a) does not apply to any of the following:

SEC. 31.00.
 (a) The appropriations made by this act shall be subject, unless otherwise provided by law, to Section 13320 and Article 2.5 (commencing with Section 13332) of Chapter 3 of Part 3 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code, requiring expenditures to be made in accordance with the allotments and other provisions of departmental budgets approved by the Department of Finance.
(b) The departmental budgets shall authorize, in the manner that the Department of Finance shall prescribe, all established positions whose continuance for the year is approved. Authorization by the Department of Finance is required for (1) the reclassification of any position to a monthly maximum salary of $7,331 or above, regardless of range, (which is equivalent to the monthly maximum salary of the Staff Services Manager II Managerial classification as of July 1, 2015) and (2) the establishment of any new position not (A) specifically identified in the Governor’s Budget and approved by the Legislature or (B) approved by the Legislature and specifically documented in the Final Change Book or enacted legislation.
(c) The Department of Finance shall, for a period of not less than two years, keep and preserve documentation concerning position changes approved as specified in subdivision (b). The Department of Finance may use electronic means to keep and preserve this documentation.
(d) It is the intent of the Legislature that all positions administratively established pursuant to this section that are intended by the administration to be ongoing be submitted to the Legislature for approval through the regular budget process as soon as possible. All positions administratively established pursuant to this section during the 2015–16 fiscal year shall terminate on June 30, 2016, except for those positions that have been (1) approved by the Legislature as part of the regular budget process for the 2016–17 fiscal year as new positions or (2) approved by the Department of Finance after the 2016–17 Governor’s Budget submission to the Legislature and subsequently reported to the Legislature prior to July 1, 2016. The positions identified in (2) above may be reestablished by the Department of Finance during the 2016–17 fiscal year, provided that these positions are shown in the Governor’s Budget for the 2017–18 fiscal year as submitted to the Legislature, and provided that these positions do not result in the reestablishment of positions deleted by the Legislature through the budget process for the 2016–17 fiscal year. The Department of Finance shall provide written notification to the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee within 30 days of the reestablishment of positions approved in the 2016–17 fiscal year pursuant to (2) above.

Prior to certification, the Department of Finance shall determine whether the increase in salary range or employee compensation action will require supplemental funding in the 2016–17 fiscal year. If the Department of Finance determines that supplemental funding will be required, the department may certify only if it notifies in writing, at least 30 days before, the chairpersons of the committees in each house of the Legislature that consider appropriations and the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, or a lesser time which the chairperson of the joint committee, or his or her designee, determines.
(f) A certification on a payroll claim that expenditures therein are in accordance with current budgetary provisions as approved by the Department of Finance shall be sufficient evidence to the Controller that these expenditures comply with this section.
(g) Requests to continue administratively established positions as ongoing positions pursuant to subdivision (d) shall include information on the date the positions were administratively established. This information shall be included in the administration’s budget change proposals and finance letters. If the administration requests to establish new positions in the 2016–17 fiscal year, and subsequently decides to administratively establish the positions in the 2015–16 fiscal year, the Department of Finance shall provide written notification to the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee within 30 days of the administrative establishment of the positions.
SEC. 32.00.
 (a) The officers of the various departments, boards, commissions, and institutions, for whose benefit and support appropriations are made in this act, are expressly forbidden to make any expenditures in excess of these appropriations. Any indebtedness attempted to be created against the state in violation of this section shall be null and void, and shall not be allowed by the Controller nor paid out of any state appropriation.
(b) Any member of a department, board, commission, or institution who shall vote for any expenditure, or create any indebtedness against the state in excess of the respective appropriations made by this act shall be liable both personally and on his or her official bond for the amount of the indebtedness, to be recovered in any court of competent jurisdiction by the person or persons, firm, or corporation to which the indebtedness is owing. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of law, a person may not be held personally liable for the amount of any indebtedness created by an expenditure in excess of an appropriation made by this act if all of the following occur: (1) the expenditure is in response to increases in enrollment, population, or caseload by the State Department of Social Services, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the State Department of Developmental Services, the State Department of State Hospitals, the State Department of Health Care Services, or the State Department of Public Health; (2) that expenditure is incurred no sooner than 30 days after the Director of Finance provides written notification of its necessity to the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee; and (3) if the chairperson does not advise in response that the expenditure shall not occur. The director’s notification shall include a certification of any amounts required by enrollment, population, or caseload, rather than management decisions or policy changes.
(c) Neither subdivision (a) nor (b) applies to the expenditure of moneys to fund continuous appropriations, including appropriations made in the California Constitution, and federal laws mandating the expenditure of funds.
SEC. 33.00.
 If any item of appropriation in this act is vetoed, eliminated, or reduced by the Governor under Section 10 of Article IV of the California Constitution, while approving portions of this act, such veto, elimination, or reduction shall not affect the other portions of this act, and these other portions of this act, so approved, shall have the same effect in law as if any vetoed or eliminated items of appropriation had not been present in this act, and as if any reduced item of appropriation had not been reduced.
SEC. 34.00.
 If any portion of this act is held unconstitutional, that decision shall not affect the validity of any other portion of this act. The Legislature hereby declares that it would have passed this act, and each portion thereof, irrespective of the fact that any other portion be declared unconstitutional.
SEC. 35.21.
 Notwithstanding any other law, the Department of Finance shall not use the estimated net final payment accrual methodology for the accrual of revenues, except for tax revenues that are accrued pursuant to an initiative measure that is enacted on or after January 1, 2012.
SEC. 35.35.
 (a) To ensure cash needs in any state operations appropriation are met, departments shall make every reasonable effort to promptly collect reimbursements or amounts payable from other funds, or collect the amounts in advance. Payments between departments may be made by transferring funds pursuant to Section 11255 of the Government Code.
(b) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, if a department implementing FI$Cal demonstrates to the Department of Finance that it is unable to collect reimbursements or amounts payable from other funds as specified in subdivision (a) and a temporary cash shortage arises in a state operations appropriation for the department, the Director of Finance may authorize a short­ term cash loan from the General Fund or from other funds administered or used by the requesting department. The cash loan shall be subject to the terms and conditions for repayment as may be prescribed by the Department of Finance. Interest charges may be waived pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 16314 of the Government Code. Within 10 days after approval, the Director of Finance shall notify the Joint Legislative Budget Committee of loans approved pursuant to this subdivision.
(c) For purposes of the budgetary and legal bases of accounting and budgeting, the principal amount of any loans made pursuant to this section shall not be considered part of the balance of the fund that receives the loan, nor shall it be deducted from the balance of the fund from which the loan is made. These loans are considered cashflow loans for temporary cash shortages and shall not constitute budgetary loans, revenues, or expenditures. The Department of Finance shall make the final determination of the budgetary and accounting transactions and treatments to ensure proper implementation of the provisions of this section, pursuant to Section 13344 of the Government Code.
SEC. 35.50.
