LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1385, Leyva. California Disaster Assistance Act: Inland Regional Center.
The California Disaster Assistance Act generally provides that the state share for disaster project allocations to local agencies is no more than 75% of total state eligible costs, except for specified events for which the state share is up to 100% of state eligible costs.
This bill would add the December 2, 2015, shooting that occurred at the Inland Regional Center to the list of events for which the state share of state eligible cost is up to 100%, and would make findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special law.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 8686.5 is added to the Government Code, to read:

8686.5.
 Notwithstanding subdivision (a) of Section 8686, the state share shall be 100 percent of the total state eligible costs connected with the shooting that occurred at the Inland Regional Center on December 2, 2015.

SEC. 2.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique costs incurred by local agencies in responding to the December 2, 2015, shooting that occurred at the Inland Regional Center.
