As Amends the Law on Nov 18, 2020


SECTION 1.

 Section 20460 of the Government Code is amended to read:

20460.
 (a)  Any public agency may participate in and make all or part of its employees members of  this system by contract entered into between its governing body and the board pursuant to this part. However, a public agency may shall  not enter into the contract within three years of termination of a previous contract for participation.
(b) The changes to this section made by the act adding this subdivision shall apply to a contract entered into, amended, or extended on and after January 1, 2021.

SEC. 2.

 Section 20502 of the Government Code is amended to read:

20502.
 (a)  (1)  The initial  contract shall include in this system all firefighters, police officers, county peace officers, local sheriffs, and other employees of the contracting agency, except as exclusions in addition to the exclusions applicable to state employees may be agreed to by the agency and the board. The contract shall not provide for the exclusion of some, but not all, firefighters, police officers, county peace officers, or local sheriffs. The exclusions of employees, other than firefighters, police officers, county peace officers, or local sheriffs, shall be based on groups of employees such as departments or duties, and not on individual employees. The exclusions of groups may be made by amendments to contracts, with respect to future entrants into the group. The board may disapprove the exclusion of a group, if in its opinion the exclusion adversely affects the interest of this system. Membership in this system is compulsory for all employees included under a contract. This section shall not be construed to supersede Sections 20303 and 20305. 
(2) The exclusions of groups shall not be made by amendments to contracts. An amendment to a contract to enumerate or clarify provisions related to groups of employees in a manner that does not expand those already subject to exclusion shall not be considered an exclusion prohibited by this paragraph.
(3) Membership in this system is compulsory for all employees included under a contract.
(b) This section shall not be construed to supersede Sections 20303 and 20305.
(c) The changes to this section made by the act adding this subdivision shall apply to a contract entered into, amended, or extended on and after January 1, 2021.
