CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill
No. 554


Introduced by Senator Archuleta

February 18, 2021


An act to amend Section 50110 of the Government Code, relating to local government.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 554, as introduced, Archuleta. Cities and counties: publications at public expense: distribution.
Existing law prescribes powers and duties that are common to cities and counties. In this regard, existing law requires the legislative body of these entities, among others, to furnish the applicable clerk 3 copies of each printed, mimeographed, or processed book, pamphlet, report, bulletin, or other publication issued by them at the expense of the local agency and the clerk is, in turn, required to send copies to specified repositories for reference use in those institutions.
This bill would increase the number of each printed, mimeographed, or processed book, pamphlet, report, bulletin, or other publication that is required to be provided to a clerk, as described above, to 5 copies. By increasing the duties of local officials, 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:


SECTION 1.

 Section 50110 of the Government Code is amended to read:

50110.
 The legislative body, and each office, officer, or employee of a local agency agency, shall furnish the clerk three five copies of each printed, mimeographed, or processed book, pamphlet, report, bulletin, or other publication issued by them at the expense of the local agency. The clerk shall send one copy of each publication to the State Library at Sacramento, the Institute of Governmental Studies of the University of California at Berkeley, and the Public Affairs Service of the University of California at Los Angeles, to be preserved for reference use in those institutions.

SEC. 2.

 If the Commission on State Mandates determines that this act contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement to local agencies and school districts for those costs shall be made pursuant to Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code.
