When local organizations have agreed with the Secretary of Agriculture upon a plan for works of improvement pursuant to the authorization contained in said Department of Agriculture Appropriation Act or in said Public Law 566 and desire financial assistance from the State pursuant to this chapter, they shall file an application with the department requesting the department to recommend to the Legislature that an appropriation of funds be made for the next fiscal year.

(Amended by Stats. 1957, Ch. 1932.)


The department shall make such a recommendation to the Legislature if it finds that the requirements of Section 12867 or Section 12868 have been met.

(Amended by Stats. 1957, Ch. 1932.)


The findings of the department required by subsection (d) of Section 12867 or of subsection (f) of Section 12868 shall be based upon current cost estimates or actual costs incurred or expended.

(Amended by Stats. 1957, Ch. 1932.)


The findings of the department required by subsection (c) of Section 12867 or by subsections (a) to (e) of Section 12868 need be made only once, at the time the department first recommends an entire project or such portion or portions thereof as constitute complete and usable independent units to the Legislature, and need not be made again each year thereafter in which the department recommends an allocation of funds therefor. If conditions change so as in the judgment of the department to warrant new or different findings, the department may however make additional or contrary findings, and make recommendations thereon to the Legislature.

(Amended by Stats. 1957, Ch. 1932.)


Money appropriated to the department for reallocation to local organizations shall be reallocated to local organizations upon order of the department after application therefor has been made to it by such local organizations showing the necessity, purpose and use to be made of the money or showing that such organizations have made necessary advances or incurred obligations for the purpose of expediting projects for which the allocation is made and giving such other information as the department may require. Such application may be filed with or as a part of the application for recommendation to the Legislature for appropriation of funds. Expenditures of the reallocated sums shall be reported to the department as and when required by it. The reports shall give such information as the department may require.

(Amended by Stats. 1959, Ch. 1269.)


The department may refuse to make any order for the reallocation of any of the funds if the provisions of this chapter are violated.
