CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill No. 1135


Introduced by Assembly Member Wood

February 17, 2017


An act to add Section 34019.2 to the Revenue and Taxation Code, relating to marijuana.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1135, as introduced, Wood. California Marijuana Tax Fund.
Existing law establishes the California Marijuana Tax Fund, which is funded by the taxes paid on nonmedical marijuana, to be used for specified purposes. Existing law, after other specified disbursements, requires the Controller to disburse 60% of the remaining funds to the State Department of Health Care Services for use for specified purposes, including prevention and early intervention services to recognize and reduce risks related to substance use and early signs of problematic use and substance use disorders.
This bill would require the State Department of Public Health and the State Department of Education to establish an inclusive public stakeholder process to seek input from stakeholders to determine a disbursement formula for the funds provided to the State Department of Health Care Services from the California Marijuana Tax Fund and would require the findings of the stakeholder meetings to be given to the State Department of Health Care Services and considered by that department when determining funding priorities for those moneys.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
