(Amended by Stats. 1986, Ch. 879, Sec. 29.)

2241.
  

When a bill is introduced in the Legislature, and each time a bill is amended, the Legislative Counsel shall determine whether the bill requires state reimbursement to local agencies or school districts pursuant to Section 2229 or 2230. The Legislative Counsel shall make this determination known in the digest of the bill and shall describe in the digest the basis for this determination.

In making any determination required by this section the Legislative Counsel shall disregard any provision in a bill which would make inoperative the reimbursement requirements of Section 2229 or 2230, and shall make his or her determination irrespective of any provision to that effect.

(Amended by Stats. 1986, Ch. 879, Sec. 30.)

2242.
  

Whenever the Legislative Counsel determines that a bill will require state reimbursement to a local agency or a school district as provided in Section 2229 or 2230, the Department of Finance shall prepare estimates of the amount of reimbursement which will be required. The estimates shall be prepared for the respective committees of each house of the Legislature which consider taxation measures and appropriation measures and shall be prepared prior to any hearing on such a bill by any such committee.

(Amended by Stats. 1986, Ch. 879, Sec. 31.)

2243.
  

The estimate required by Section 2242 shall be the amount estimated to be required during the first fiscal year of a bill’s operation in order to reimburse local agencies and school districts, pursuant to Section 2229 or 2230, for lost revenue mandated by the bill. In the event that the operative date of such a bill does not begin on July 1, the estimate shall also include the amount estimated to be required for reimbursement for the next following full fiscal year.

(Amended by Stats. 1986, Ch. 879, Sec. 32.)

2244.
  

In the event that a bill is amended on the floor of either house, whether by adoption of the report of a conference committee or otherwise, in such a manner as to require reimbursement pursuant to Section 2229 or 2230, the Legislative Counsel shall immediately inform, respectively, the Speaker of the Assembly and the President of the Senate of this fact. The notification from the Legislative Counsel shall be published in the journal of the respective houses of the Legislature.

(Amended by Stats. 1986, Ch. 879, Sec. 33.)

2246.2.
  

The Director of Finance shall include in the Governor’s Budget an appropriation for statutes identified pursuant to Section 2246 which increase the penalty for a crime or infraction if the director determines that the statutes would increase the total detention and probation costs to local agencies by more than 1 percent of the actual statewide detention and probation costs incurred in the preceding fiscal year, as compiled by the Controller pursuant to Section 12463 of the Government Code. The director shall rely on written requests from affected local agencies, supported by fiscal data. Any funds so appropriated shall be used to reimburse only one-half of the costs incurred by local agencies in excess of the amounts determined to be 1 percent of the actual detention and probation costs to local agencies in the preceding fiscal year. Funds shall be appropriated to the Controller for allocation and disbursement to local agencies.
