CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 2434


Introduced by Assembly Member Quirk-Silva

February 19, 2020


An act to add Article 13 (commencing with Section 29560) to Chapter 2 of Division 3 of Title 3 of the Government Code, relating to local government.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2434, as introduced, Quirk-Silva. County government: allocation of state funds.
Existing law provides that the general fund of a county consists of money received in the treasury and not specially appropriated to any other fund. Existing law provides for the allocation of state moneys under various housing programs to counties for specified purposes, including, among others, the Multifamily Housing Program.
This bill would require a county that receives qualified state housing funds, defined to include specified moneys received under various housing programs, to ensure, to the extent practicable and consistent with the terms of any applicable law, equitable distribution of those moneys, as provided. The bill would exclude from these requirements state housing funds received pursuant to a program that requires the county to dedicate moneys received under that program to a particular project.
By adding to the duties of local officials with respect to allocating certain state moneys, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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