SB 912, Beall. California Housing Finance Agency: management compensation.
Existing law establishes the California Housing Finance Agency, within the Department of Housing and Community Development, with a primary purpose of meeting the housing needs of persons and families of low or moderate income. Existing law, among other officers within the agency, provides for a director of enterprise risk management and compliance with specified duties related to the development of new programs or changes to existing law or regulations that may result in new or increased risk to the agency. Existing law requires that the board of directors of the agency establish the compensation of key exempt management positions in the agency’s annual budget, as provided.
This bill, with respect to the compensation of those key exempt management positions, would include the director of enterprise risk management and compliance and the risk manager among those positions, and would delete obsolete references.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
