LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 146, Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review. Correctional facilities.
(1) Existing law establishes various programs that authorize the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation or the Board of State and Community Corrections, participating counties, and the State Public Works Board to acquire, design, and construct local jail facilities or adult local criminal justice facilities, as defined, approved by the Board of State and Community Corrections. Existing law authorizes the State Public Works Board to issue revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes to finance the acquisition, design, and construction of approved county jails or adult local criminal justice facilities under these programs in the amounts of $867,434,000, $509,060,000, $500,000,000, and $270,000,000. The funds derived from those revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes are continuously appropriated for the purposes described above.
This bill would decrease the amounts of revenue bonds, notes, or anticipation notes that the State Public Works Board may issue for these programs to $840,445,397, $412,474,000, $420,000,000, and $244,516,000, as specified, thereby making an appropriation.
(2) Existing law authorizes the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to design and construct new, or renovate existing, buildings and any necessary ancillary improvements at facilities under the department’s jurisdiction to provide medical, dental, and mental health treatment or housing. Existing law limits financing pursuant to this authorization to specified facilities and projects, including all projects established by the board in the Health Care Facility Improvement Program. Under existing law, costs for design and construction, including renovation, and construction-related costs for all projects approved for financing by the State Public Works Board may not exceed $1,171,961,000. Existing law makes an increase in these funds available for allocation to any project established by the board in the Health Care Facility Improvement Program, subject to requirements, including that each allocation be approved by the board and that the Department of Finance report specified information regarding the project to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee and the fiscal committees of each house of the Legislature at least 20 days before the board’s approval. Existing law continuously appropriates the funds derived from interim financing, revenue bonds, negotiable notes, or negotiable bond anticipation notes issued pursuant to these provisions to the board on behalf of the department for these purposes.
This bill would reduce the maximum amount of costs authorized for the purposes described above to $1,129,157,000, thereby making an appropriation. The bill would remove the requirements that the board approve each allocation and that the Department of Finance report to the Legislature.
(3) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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