CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 2082


Introduced by Assembly Member Calderon

February 05, 2020


An act to amend Section 2851 of add Section 5888 to the Health and Safety Code, relating to public mental health.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2082, as amended, Calderon. Public health: pest abatement districts. Mental Health Student Services Act.
Existing law establishes the Mental Health Student Services Act as a mental health partnership competitive grant program for the purpose of establishing mental health partnerships between a county’s mental health or behavioral health departments and school districts, charter schools, and the county office of education within the county. Existing law requires the Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission to establish criteria for the grant program and requires that applicants for the program submit a plan that, among other things, describes the need for mental health services for children and youth, including campus-based mental health services.
This bill would require a school district, charter school, or county office of education that receives a grant under the program to submit an annual data report to the Legislature indicating how the funds were used, including, among other things, the amount of grant funds received and the number of mental health service workers that were compensated with those funds. The bill would require the data report to be submitted to the Legislature on or before January 15 of each year, and would require the data report to cover the grant funds received by the school district, charter school, or county office of education for the prior year.

Existing law authorizes the organization of a pest abatement district by a petition describing the exterior boundaries of the proposed district and the nature of the pest or pests to be controlled or abated. Existing law requires members of the pest abatement district board to serve without compensation, except for their necessary traveling and other expenses incurred in performance of their official duties.

This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to those provisions.
