LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1593, Lorena Gonzalez. State claims: California Victim Compensation Board: Government Claims Program.
Existing law requires the California Victim Compensation Board, in cases in which evidence shows that a crime with which a claimant was charged was either not committed at all, or not committed by the claimant, to report the facts of the case and its conclusions to the Legislature with a recommendation that the Legislature make an appropriation for the purpose of indemnifying the claimant.
This bill would appropriate $5,675,880 from the General Fund to the executive officer of the board for payment of the claims of specified individuals.
Existing law requires the Department of General Services to ensure that all claims that have been approved by the department, and for which there exists no legally available appropriation, are submitted for legislative approval at least once each calendar year.
This bill would appropriate $1,146 to the Department of General Services, as specified, for the payment of claims against the state, approved by the department.
This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
Vote: 2/3   Appropriation: YES   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
