Affordable housing: alternative forms of development.
01/03/2022 - From committee chair, with author's amendments: Amend, and re-refer to Com. on H. & C.D. Read second time and amended.
AB 1068, as amended, Santiago. Affordable housing: alternative forms of development. Existing law establishes various programs and funding sources administered by the Department of Housing and Community Development to enable the development of affordable housing, including the Building Homes and Jobs Act, the Multifamily Housing Program, the Housing for a Healthy California Program, and the Veterans Housing and Homeless Prevention Act of 2014. Under existing law governing the State Community Development Block Grant Program, the department is required to distribute funds made available under the program in order to provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expand economic opportunities, consistent with federal requirements. Existing federal law also establishes the HOME Investment Partnership Act to, among other things, expand the supply of affordable housing. Existing law designates the department as the state agency responsible for administering the HOME Investment Partnership Act. Existing law authorizes the Department of General Services (DGS) to dispose of surplus state real property, as provided. Under existing law, DGS is required to offer surplus state real property, that has been determined by DGS not to be needed by any state agency, to any local agency, as defined, and then to nonprofit affordable housing sponsors, as defined, prior to being offered for sale to private entities or individuals.This bill would require the department to solicit and consider proposals for adaptive reuse, as defined, that demonstrate cost efficiencies and timely completion in implementing the affordable housing loan and grant programs described above. The bill would require any notice of funding availability issued by the department to state that adaptive reuse of a property for affordable housing purposes is an eligible activity. The bill would require an adaptive reuse proposal to result in at least 50% of all units being affordable to persons who are extremely low and very low income and would require an adaptive reuse proposal to ensure that construction workers on the projects are paid prevailing wages, as defined, and that the contractors use a construction workforce that is skilled and trained, as defined.This bill would require a local agency, nonprofit affordable housing sponsor, private entity, or individual that receives surplus state real property to consider adaptive reuse in any housing development on the acquired property.This bill would prohibit a local affordable housing bond measure, including any current local bond program for which the funds are not fully encumbered, from prohibiting or excluding a project proposal that uses an adaptive reuse model solely on the basis that the proposal is for an adaptive reuse project.The bill would include findings that changes proposed by this bill address a matter of statewide concern rather than a municipal affair and, therefore, apply to all cities, including charter cities.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.

Rental housing unlawful housing practices: applications: criminal records.
01/03/2022 - From committee chair, with author's amendments: Amend, and re-refer to Com. on H. & C.D. Read second time and amended.
AB 1241, as amended, Jones-Sawyer. Rental housing unlawful housing practices: applications: criminal records. Existing law, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, generally prohibits housing discrimination with respect to the personal characteristics of race, color, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, ancestry, familial status, source of income, disability, veteran or military status, or genetic information.This bill would make it an unlawful housing practice for the owner of a rental housing accommodation to inquire about, or require an applicant for a rental housing accommodation to disclose, a criminal record during the initial application assessment phase, as defined, unless otherwise required by state or federal law. After the successful completion of the initial application assessment phase, the bill would permit an owner to request a criminal background check of the applicant and consider an applicant’s criminal record in deciding whether to rent or lease to the applicant. The bill would require an owner who is considering denying an application on the basis of the applicant’s criminal record to, within 5 days of receiving the information that is the basis of the possible denial, provide the applicant with a written statement listing the reasons for the possible denial before making a final decision. If, within 3 days of receipt of the written statement of the possible denial, the applicant provides the owner notice of evidence demonstrating the inaccuracy of the item or items within the applicant’s criminal record or evidence of rehabilitation or other mitigating factors, as specified, the bill would require the owner to reconsider their decision for a specified time, and would require the owner to provide written notification to the applicant of the owner’s final decision to deny the application.The bill would prohibit the owner, in a rental application or as otherwise part of the application process, from seeking, considering, using, or taking an adverse action based in whole or in part on specified information or occurrences, including, among others, arrests that did not result in conviction, convictions that have been voided, and juvenile justice determinations. The bill would also require an owner to provide an applicant notice, as specified, in the application itself and before requesting a criminal background check. The bill would provide that its provisions do not apply under specified circumstances, including if the rental housing accommodation is a single-family home, duplex, triplex, or accessory dwelling unit in which the owner occupies a unit or bedroom as a principal residence. The act provides that, in connection with specified unlawful practices related to housing discrimination, proof of a violation causing a discriminatory effect is shown if an act or failure to act has the effect, regardless of intent, of unlawfully discriminating on the basis of any of the personal characteristics described above. The act provides that a business establishment whose action or inaction has an unintended discriminatory effect shall not be considered to have committed an unlawful housing practice in violation of the act if the business establishment can establish that the action or inaction is necessary to the operation of the business and effectively carries out the significant business need it is alleged to serve.This bill would instead provide that a business establishment whose action or inaction has an unintended discriminatory effect shall not be considered to have committed an unlawful housing practice in violation of the act if the business establishment can establish that the action or inaction is necessary to achieve one or more substantial, legitimate, nondiscriminatory business interests and effectively carries out the significant business interest it is alleged to serve.The act establi

09/29/2021 - Chaptered by Secretary of State - Chapter 356, Statutes of 2021.
AB 1297, Holden. California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank: public and economic development facilities: housing. The Bergeson-Peace Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank Act authorizes the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank, governed by a board of directors, to, among other things, make loans, issue bonds, and provide other financial assistance for various types of projects that qualify as public development or economic development facilities. The act defines “public development facilities” for these purposes to mean real and personal property, structures, conveyances, equipment, thoroughfares, buildings, and supporting components thereof, excluding any housing, that are directly related to providing, among other things, housing-related infrastructure, as specified. The act defines “economic development facilities” for these purposes to mean real and personal property, structures, buildings, equipment, and supporting components thereof that are used to provide industrial, recreational, research, commercial, utility, goods movement, or service enterprise facilities, community, educational, cultural, or social welfare facilities and any parts or combinations thereof, and all necessary facilities or infrastructure, excluding any housing.Existing law establishes the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank Fund and continuously appropriates the money in the fund to the bank for purposes of the act. This bill would authorize economic development facilities and public development facilities to include housing if the housing meets certain financing requirements and limits, as specified.Existing law authorizes the bank, in order to provide or arrange for the financing of economic development facilities to, among other actions, issue tax-exempt revenue bonds, in accordance with certain conditions.This bill would prohibit the proceeds of private activity bonds issued by the bank under any state allocation from being used to finance any housing.Existing law requires the bank, with respect to financing economic development facilities, to utilize existing local economic development networks to identify projects and to prepare a plan, in consultation with local economic development networks and organizations and representatives, as specified.This bill would require housing financed pursuant to these provisions to meet specified conditions. The bill, among other conditions, would provide that any housing financed as part of an economic development facility be required for the operation of the facility, would prohibit funds from the Infrastructure State Revolving Loan Program from being used to finance any housing component of an economic development facility, and would limit housing finance costs from representing more than a certain percentage of the overall project costs financed by the bank. The bill, with respect to public development facilities, would also require any housing financed to meet specified conditions, including prohibiting tax-exempt revenue bonds issued by the bank from financing any housing component of a public development facility, and prohibiting funds from the Infrastructure State Revolving Loan Program from being used to finance any housing component of a public development facility. By authorizing an additional type of expenditure from the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank Fund, the bill would make an appropriation.

Student financial aid: Cal Grant Reform Act.
09/20/2021 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 3 p.m.
AB 1456, Medina. Student financial aid: Cal Grant Reform Act. (1) Existing law establishes the Cal Grant A and B Entitlement awards, the California Community College Transfer Entitlement awards, the Competitive Cal Grant A and B awards, the Cal Grant C awards, and the Cal Grant T awards under the administration of the Student Aid Commission, and establishes eligibility requirements for these awards for participating students attending qualifying institutions.This bill would enact the Cal Grant Reform Act, which would revise and recast the provisions establishing and governing the existing Cal Grant Program into a new Cal Grant Program. The bill would specify that the Cal Grant Reform Act would only become operative upon the appropriation by the Legislature, in the annual Budget Act or another statute, of sufficient funds to fully implement its provisions. The bill would authorize the commission to adopt emergency regulations to implement the Cal Grant Reform Act. The new Cal Grant Program would also include a Cal Grant 2 Program and a Cal Grant 4 Program, with eligibility requirements as specified.The provisions rendering several existing provisions of the Cal Grant Program inoperative would take effect on July 1, 2024, or on a date determined in the annual Budget Act, whichever date is later. The Cal Grant Reform Act would become operative for students to apply for aid beginning October 1, 2023, and to receive aid for the 2024–25 academic year.The bill would require the Trustees of the California State University, and request the Regents of the University of California, to adopt a statement of policy on or before June 30, 2023, on how their institutional aid programs address student basic needs and how these institutional funds are prioritized for disbursement. The bill would require the University of California, the California State University, private nonprofit and for-profit institutions of higher education, and community college districts whose students receive Cal Grant aid to report specified data to the Department of Finance, the Legislative Analyst’s Office, and the higher education policy and fiscal committees of the Legislature for each academic year, starting with the 2021–22 academic year, by March 31 of the subsequent academic year. To the extent that this provision would impose new duties on community college districts, it would constitute a state-mandated local program.(2) This bill would incorporate additional changes to Section 66025.9 of the Education Code proposed by SB 512 to be operative only if this bill and SB 512 are enacted and this bill is enacted last.(3) This bill would incorporate additional changes to Section 76300 of the Education Code proposed by AB 1113 to be operative only if this bill and AB 1113 are enacted and this bill is enacted last.(4) 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.

Real property: discriminatory restrictions.
09/29/2021 - Chaptered by Secretary of State - Chapter 359, Statutes of 2021.
AB 1466, McCarty. Real property: discriminatory restrictions. Existing law, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, ancestry, familial status, source of income, disability, veteran or military status, or genetic information, and provides that discrimination in housing through a restrictive covenant includes the existence of a restrictive covenant, regardless of whether accompanied by a statement that the covenant is repealed or void. Existing law also provides that a provision in any deed of real property in California that purports to restrict the right of any person to sell, lease, rent, use, or occupy the property to persons having the characteristics specified above by providing for payment of a penalty, forfeiture, reverter, or otherwise, is void, except as specified. Additionally, existing law provides that any deed or other written instrument that relates to title to real property, or any written covenant, condition, or restriction annexed or made a part of, by reference or otherwise, any deed or instrument, that contains any provision that purports to forbid, restrict, or condition the right of any person or persons to sell, buy, lease, rent, use, or occupy the property on account of any of characteristics specified above, is deemed to be revised to omit that provision. Existing law requires a county recorder, title insurance company, escrow company, real estate broker, real estate agent, or association that delivers a copy of a declaration, governing document, or deed, to place a cover page or stamp on the first page of the previously recorded document stating that if the document contains any restriction that unlawfully discriminates based on any of the characteristics specified above, that document is void. This bill would require a title company, escrow company, real estate broker, real estate agent, or association that delivers a copy of a declaration, governing document, or deed to a person who holds an ownership interest of record in property to also provide a Restrictive Covenant Modification form with specified procedural information.Existing law authorizes a person who holds an ownership interest of record in property that they believe is the subject of an unlawfully restrictive covenant, as specified, to record a Restrictive Covenant Modification, which is required to include a copy of the original document with the illegal language stricken. Existing law requires the county recorder, before recording the modification document, to submit the modification document and the original document to the county counsel who is required to determine whether the original document contains an unlawful restriction based on any of the characteristics specified above. Existing law requires the county counsel to return these documents and inform the county recorder of their determination, and requires the county recorder to refuse to record the modification document if the county counsel finds that the original document does not contain an unlawful restriction. Existing law requires the county recorder to make Restrictive Covenant Modification forms available to the public. This bill would additionally authorize a title company, escrow company, county recorder, real estate broker, real estate agent, or other person to record a Restrictive Covenant Modification. The bill, beginning July 1, 2022, would require a title company, escrow company, real estate broker, or real estate agent that has actual knowledge of a declaration, governing document, or deed that is being directly delivered to a person who holds or is acquiring an ownership interest in property and includes a possible unlawfully restrictive covenant to notify the person of the existence of that covenant and their ability to have it removed through the r

AB 1574, Committee on Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy. Public contracts: small business liaisons and advocates and disabled veteran business enterprises: preferences. The Small Business Procurement and Contract Act requires the Director of General Services and the heads of other state agencies that enter into contracts for the provision of goods, services, and information technology and for the construction of state facilities to establish goals for the participation of small businesses in these contracts, to provide for small business preferences in the award of these contracts, to give special consideration and special assistance to small businesses, and, whenever possible, to make awards to small businesses, as specified. Existing law requires each state agency to consolidate its existing staff functions that relate to contract opportunities for small businesses into a single point of contact for small businesses, and to designate a small business advocate as a liaison to small business suppliers. Existing law requires each state agency that significantly regulates small business or significantly impacts small business to designate at least one individual who shall serve as a small business liaison for the agency. Existing law requires the Director of the Office of Small Business Advocate to, among other duties, seek the assistance and cooperation of all state agencies and departments providing services to, or affecting, small business, including the small business liaison, and maintain, publicize, and distribute an annual list of persons serving as small business ombudspersons throughout state government. Existing law also requires the small business advocate to identify potential certified small business and certified disabled veteran business enterprise (DVBE) subcontractors and potential subcontracting opportunities, as well as establish a California multiple award schedule program, as provided.Under existing law, the administering agency for the California Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program is the Department of General Services, except in the case of contracts for professional bond services. Existing law requires the Director of General Services to adopt written policies and guidelines establishing a uniform process for state contracting to provide a DVBE participation incentive to bidders, which all state agencies are required to use when awarding contracts. That law requires the Department of Veterans Affairs to carry out specified duties relating to the program, including by maintaining complete records of its promotional efforts. That law requires the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs to appoint the California Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program Advocate and for that advocate to carry out certain duties. That law requires each awarding department, as defined, to appoint an agency Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program Advocate to carry out certain duties, including by meeting regularly with the California Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program Advocate and contract and procurement staffs of their departments to disseminate information about the California Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program. This bill would enact the Leveraging State Procurement for an Inclusive Economic Recovery Act of 2021, which would require the Director of the Office of Small Business Advocate to maintain, publicize, and distribute an annual list of persons serving as small business liaisons throughout state government. The bill would require the Director of the Office of Small Business Advocate to collaborate with the California Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program Advocate regarding the implementation of the California Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise Program, as provided.

AB 1606, as introduced, Irwin. Public postsecondary education: veterans: waiver of mandatory systemwide tuition and fees. Existing law establishes the segments of the public postsecondary education system in the state, including the University of California administered by the Regents of the University of California, the California State University administered by the Trustees of the California State University, and the California Community Colleges administered by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges. The Donahoe Higher Education Act prohibits campuses of those segments from charging mandatory systemwide tuition or fees to specified students who apply for a waiver, including a child of any veteran of the United States military who has a service-connected disability, has been killed in service, or has died of a service-connected disability.This bill would additionally include the spouse or unmarried surviving spouse of any veteran of the United States military who has a service-connected disability, has been killed in service, or has died of a service-connected disability. The bill would also make nonsubstantive changes to provisions relating to this waiver of mandatory systemwide tuition and fees. To the extent these provisions would add additional duties on community college districts, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.Existing law establishes various educational benefits for dependents of veterans who were killed during military service or are totally disabled, as specified. Existing law prohibits a dependent of a veteran from receiving these educational benefits during the time the dependent is entitled to receive specified federal educational benefits or duplicative assistance from any other government source.This bill would repeal that provision prohibiting a dependent of a veteran from receiving those educational benefits, as specified.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.

Income taxation: exclusion: military survivor benefits.

AB 1629, as amended, Seyarto. Income taxation: exclusion: military survivor benefits. The Personal Income Tax Law, in modified conformity with federal law, generally defines “gross income” as income from whatever source derived, except as specifically excluded, and provides various exclusions from gross income for purposes of computing tax liability. Existing law requires any bill authorizing a new tax expenditure to contain, among other things, specific goals, purposes, and objectives that the tax expenditure will achieve, detailed performance indicators, and data collection requirements.This bill, for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2022, and before January 1, 2027, would provide an exclusion from gross income for survivor benefits or payments, not to exceed $20,000 per taxable year, received on or after January 1, 2021, and before January 1, 2027, under the federal Survivor Benefit Plan. The bill would require the Franchise Tax Board to submit, on or before June 15, 2025, a report to the Legislature on the income brackets of taxpayers who claimed this exclusion, and would provide findings and declarations relating to the goals, purposes, and objectives of this exclusion. This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy.

AB 1633, as amended, Seyarto. Public postsecondary education: veterans’ educational benefits: information sharing. Under existing law, the Department of Veterans Affairs within state government has specified powers and duties relating to veterans, including those relating to education benefits. Existing law provides federal educational benefit awards for certain members and veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States. Existing law authorizes the California State University, and encourages the University of California, to report to the Department of Veterans Affairs, on an annual basis, specified information, including the total education benefits obtained by all qualified students assisted by a specified office. Existing law establishes the Student Aid Commission as the primary state agency for the administration of state-authorized student financial aid programs available to students attending all segments of postsecondary education. This bill would require the California State University, and request the University of California, to electronically transmit specified personal information regarding students whose tuition or fees, or both, are paid, or intended to be paid, using GI Bill educational benefits, as defined, to the Department of Veterans Affairs for each academic year, starting with the 2023–24 academic year, as provided. The bill would also require, on or before June 1, 2023, the Student Aid Commission to develop a template for a written consent that permits a student to opt in to having the student’s personal information shared with the Department of Veterans Affairs, as provided.

Existing law appropriates $300,000,000 from the General Fund to the State Department of Education for allocation to local educational agencies for grants for the 2021–22 fiscal year. Existing law requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to allocate $200,000,000 of that amount to local educational agencies as base grants, enrollment grants, and supplemental grants for specified purposes.This bill would revise the methodology for allocating base grants, enrollment grants, and supplemental grants to local educational agencies under the program.(2) Existing law requires the Controller to draw warrants on the State Treasury throughout each year in specified amounts for purposes of apportioning funding to school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools. Existing law requires the Controller to provide in each warrant a portion of the total amount certified by the Superintendent as apportioned for specified programs during the fiscal year from the State School Fund to the school districts and charter schools under the jurisdiction of the county superintendent of schools of that county, to the county school service fund of that county, and to the county school tuition fund of that county.This bill would add the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program, specified mental health-related services, and the special education early intervention preschool grant to the list of programs for which the Controller is required to provide in each warrant a portion of the total amount certified by the Superintendent during the fiscal year.(3) Existing law requires the Instructional Quality Commission to develop and submit to the State Board of Education, on or before December 31, 2022, and the state board to adopt, modify, revise, or reject, as prescribed, on or before March 31, 2023, model curricula relative to (A) the Vietnamese American refugee experience, (B) the Cambodian genocide, and (C) Hmong history and cultural studies, as specified, for use in elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. Existing law requires the commission to develop and submit to the state board, on or before December 31, 2021, and the state board to adopt, modify, revise, or reject, as prescribed, on before March 31, 2022, a model curriculum in Native American studies to ensure quality courses of study in Native American studies.Existing law, contingent upon the enactment of legislation during the 2021–22 Regular Session prescribing the process for the development of model curricula for Native American studies, the Vietnamese American refugee experience, the Cambodian genocide, and Hmong history and cultural studies, appropriates $1,200,000 from the General Fund to the Superintendent to support the development of those model curricula.This bill would replace the requirement that the commission develop, and that the state board adopt, modify, revise, or reject, the model curricula with a requirement that the department use the $1,200,000 in appropriated funds to enter into a contract with a county office of education or a consortium of county offices of education for the purpose of developing model curricula related to (A) the Vietnamese American refugee experience, (B) the Cambodian genocide, (C) Hmong history and cultural studies, and (D) Native American studies, as provided. The bill would impose different 2022 deadlines for the department, in collaboration with, and subject to the approval of, the executive director of the state board, to enter into the contracts for developing the model curricula,

AB 1786 - Laurie Davies
Intradistrict and interdistrict transfers: low-performing pupils.
02/04/2022 - From printer. May be heard in committee March 6.
AB 1786, as introduced, Davies. Intradistrict and interdistrict transfers: low-performing pupils. Existing law authorizes the governing boards of 2 or more school districts to enter into an agreement, for a term not to exceed 5 school years, for the interdistrict attendance of pupils who are residents of the school districts. Existing law requires a school district of residence to approve an intradistrict transfer request for a victim of an act of bullying, as provided. If there is no available school for an intradistrict transfer, existing law authorizes a victim of an act of bullying to apply for an interdistrict transfer and prohibits a school district of residence from prohibiting that transfer if the school district of proposed enrollment approves the application for transfer. This bill would require a school district of residence to also approve an intradistrict transfer request for a low-performing pupil, as defined, of that school district if the school of attendance is in the red or orange performance band in 2 or more of the state measures for 3 consecutive years on the California School Dashboard, as provided. If there is no available school for an intradistrict transfer, the bill would authorize a low-performing pupil of a school district, if the school of attendance is in the red or orange performance band in 2 or more of the state measures for 3 consecutive years on the California School Dashboard, to apply for an interdistrict transfer and would prohibit the school district of residence from prohibiting that transfer if the school district of proposed enrollment approves the application for transfer. By requiring school districts to approve intradistrict transfers for certain pupils, the 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.

Existing law, the California Suicide Prevention Act of 2000, allows the State Department of Health Care Services, contingent upon appropriation, to establish and implement a suicide prevention, education, and gatekeeper training program to reduce the severity, duration, and incidence of suicidal behaviors. Existing law authorizes the State Department of Public Health to establish the Office of Suicide Prevention to, among other things, convene experts and stakeholders, including, but not limited to, stakeholders representing populations with high rates of suicide, to encourage collaboration and coordination of resources for suicide prevention.This bill would require the department to establish an Ending Military and Veteran Suicide Task Force within the Office of Suicide Prevention to systematically reduce military and veteran suicides and to develop a plan to eliminate all military and veteran suicides in the state, as specified. Commencing June 1, 2025, the bill would require the task force to submit a specified report to the Governor and the Legislature on the state of veteran suicide prevention, as specified, including, among other things, an analysis of the plans, activities, strategies, and programs undertaken pursuant to the task force’s recommendations and their effects on reducing military and veteran suicides in the state.

Surplus land: former military base land.
09/09/2022 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 4 p.m.
AB 2319, Mia Bonta. Surplus land: former military base land. Existing law prescribes requirements for the disposal of surplus land by a local agency. Existing law defines “surplus land” for these purposes to mean land owned in fee simple by any local agency for which the local agency’s governing body takes formal action declaring that the land is surplus and is not necessary for the agency’s use. Existing law provides that an agency is not required to follow the requirements for disposal of surplus land for “exempt surplus land” except as provided. Existing law categorizes as “exempt surplus land” surplus land that a local agency is transferring to another local, state, or federal agency for the agency’s use.This bill would add to the definition of “exempt surplus land,” land that is a former military base conveyed by the federal government to a local agency, is subject to certain provisions governing the Alameda Naval Air Station and the Fleet Industrial Supply Center, and meets other specified conditions. These conditions would include, among others, that the former military base has an aggregate area greater than 5 acres, is expected to include a mix of residential and nonresidential uses, is expected to include no fewer than 1,400 residential units upon completion of development or redevelopment of the former military base, the affordability requirements for residential units are required to be governed by a settlement agreement entered into prior to September 1, 2020, and that prior to the disposition of the surplus land, the recipient has negotiated a project labor agreement, as specified. The bill would impose a penalty of 30% of the final sale price of the land upon a local agency that disposes of land in violation of these provisions after receiving notification thereof from the Department of Housing and Community Development, and a 50% penalty for subsequent violations, subject to an opportunity to cure or correct an alleged violation. The bill would require a penalty assessed pursuant to these provisions to be deposited into a local housing trust fund or, in certain circumstances, the Building Homes and Jobs Trust Fund or the Housing Rehabilitation Loan Fund, as provided. The bill would make the expenditure of penalty moneys deposited into the Building Homes and Jobs Trust Fund or the Housing Rehabilitation Loan Fund pursuant to these provisions subject to appropriation by the Legislature.This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the City of Alameda.

Lunar New Year holiday.
09/13/2022 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 4 p.m.
AB 2596, Low. Lunar New Year holiday. Existing law designates specific days as holidays in this state. Existing law requires the Governor annually to proclaim the date corresponding with the second new moon following the winter solstice, or the third new moon following the winter solstice should an intercalary month intervene, as the “Lunar New Year.” Existing law entitles state employees, with specified exceptions, to elect to receive 8 hours of holiday credit for “Native American Day,” in lieu of receiving 8 hours of personal holiday credit, and to elect to use 8 hours of vacation, annual leave, or compensating time off, consistent with departmental operational needs and collective bargaining agreements, for “Native American Day,” as specified.This bill would repeal provisions requiring the Governor to annually proclaim the “Lunar New Year,” and would instead recognize the “Lunar New Year” as a state holiday. The bill would authorize state employees, with specified exceptions, to elect to receive 8 hours of holiday credit for the “Lunar New Year” in lieu of receiving 8 hours of personal holiday credit, and to elect to use 8 hours of vacation, annual leave, or compensating time off, consistent with departmental operational needs and collective bargaining agreements, for “Lunar New Year,” as specified.Existing law designates specific days designated as holidays in this state, every Saturday and the day after Thanksgiving Day as judicial holidays, except “Admission Day,” “Columbus Day,” and any other day appointed by the President, but not by the Governor, for a public fast, thanksgiving, or holiday. This bill would additionally exclude “Lunar New Year” from designation as a judicial holiday. This bill would incorporate additional changes to Section 135 of the Code of Civil Procedure proposed by AB 1801 to be operative only if this bill and AB 1801 are enacted and this bill is enacted last.This bill would incorporate additional changes to Sections 6700, 19853, and 19853.1 of the Government Code proposed by AB 1655 and AB 1801 to be operative only if this bill and AB 1655, AB 1801, or both are enacted and this bill is enacted last.

AB 2677 - Jesse Gabriel
Information Practices Act of 1977.
09/19/2022 - Vetoed by Governor.
AB 2677, Gabriel. Information Practices Act of 1977. Existing law, the Information Practices Act of 1977, prescribes a set of requirements, prohibitions, and remedies applicable to agencies, as defined, with regard to their collection, storage, and disclosure of personal information, as defined. Existing law exempts from the provisions of the act counties, cities, any city and county, school districts, municipal corporations, districts, political subdivisions, and other local public agencies, as specified.This bill would, beginning January 1, 2025, recast those provisions to include, among other things, genetic information, IP address, online browsing history, and location information, if reasonably capable of identifying or describing an individual, within the definition of “personal information,” and revise the definition of “regulatory agency” to include the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, for the act’s purposes. The bill would make other technical, nonsubstantive, and conforming changes.Existing law requires an agency to establish rules of conduct for persons involved in the design, development, operation, disclosure, or maintenance of records containing personal information and instruct those persons with respect to specified rules relevant to the act.This bill would require that those rules established by the agency be consistent with applicable provisions of the State Administrative Manual and the State Information Management Manual. The bill would prohibit an agency from using records containing personal information for any purpose or purposes other than the purpose or purposes for which that personal information was collected or generated, except as required by state or federal law.Existing law prohibits an agency from disclosing any personal information in a manner that would link the information disclosed to the individual to whom it pertains, except under specified circumstances. Existing law requires an agency, for disclosures of specified records, to keep an accurate accounting of the date, nature, and purpose of the disclosure, and the name, title, and business address of the person or agency to whom the disclosure was made.This bill would revise the circumstances that may allow the disclosure of personal information in a manner that links or reasonably could link the information disclosed to the individual to whom it pertains, define “privacy board” for these purposes, and would make conforming changes. The bill would also revise the circumstances and types of records that would require agencies to keep an accurate accounting of the disclosure of that record.Existing law makes an intentional violation of any provision of the act, or of any rules or regulations adopted under the act, by an officer or employee of any agency a cause for discipline, including termination of employment. This bill would also make a negligent violation of the act a cause for discipline, and would specify that the relevant discipline may be up to and including termination.Existing law provides that the intentional disclosure of medical, psychiatric, or psychological information in violation of the disclosure provisions of the act, that is not otherwise permitted by law, is punishable as a misdemeanor if the wrongful disclosure results in economic loss or personal injury to the individual to whom the information pertains.This bill would, for a violation to be punishable as a misdemeanor, require that the disclosure be known or should be known to be in violation of the disclosure provisions, and remove the requirement that the wrongful disclosure result in economic loss or personal injury. Because the bill would expand the scope of an existing crime by deleting this condition, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.Existing constitutional provisions require that a statute that limits the right of access to the meetings of public bodies or the writings of public official

Nursing.
09/13/2022 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 4 p.m.
AB 2684, Berman. Nursing. Existing law, the Nursing Practice Act, establishes the Board of Registered Nurses within the Department of Consumer Affairs, until January 1, 2023, for the licensure and regulation of the practice of nursing, and makes a violation of the act a crime. Existing law grants the power to remove, for cause, a member of any board within the department to the appointing authority that appointed that member. Existing law also grants the Governor the power to remove any member of the board from office for cause, as specified. This bill would extend the provisions establishing the board and the power of the board to January 1, 2027. The bill would authorize each appointing power, rather than only the Governor, to remove members of the board for cause, as specified. The bill would also make other nonsubstantive changes.Existing federal law, the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA), requires all United States facilities or sites that test human specimens for health assessment or to diagnose, prevent, or treat disease, to abide by specific standards. Existing law authorizes various licensed medical professionals, as specified, to perform provider-performed microscopy, as described, under CLIA, to dispense, furnish, prescribe, and order contraceptives, drugs, and devices, as appropriate, to their patients, and to apply topical medications, as specified. The bill would extend these authorizations to nurse practitioners, as specified.Existing law authorizes the board, with the permission of the Director of Consumer Affairs, to form advisory committees that advise the board on the implementation of the Nursing Practice Act. The Administrative Procedure Act generally governs the procedure for the adoption, amendment, or repeal of regulations by state agencies and for the review of those regulatory actions by the Office of Administrative Law.This bill would create within the board a Nursing Education and Workforce Advisory Committee, which the bill would require to solicit input from approved nursing programs and members of the nursing and health care profession to study and recommend nursing education standards, simulated clinical experiences, and solutions to workforce issues to the board. The bill would require the committee be comprised of representatives from various sectors of the nursing profession. The bill would limit the terms of these appointments as specified. The bill would authorize the committee to establish subcommittees as specified. The bill would authorize the board to implement, interpret, or make specific the provisions governing the committee in a charter, which would be exempt from the requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act.Existing law specifies that an approved school of nursing, or an approved nursing program, is one that has been approved by the board, gives the course of instruction approved by the board, covering not less than 2 academic years, is affiliated or conducted in connection with one or more hospitals, and is an institution of higher education, as specified. Existing law imposes specified duties on the board related to the approval and regulation of schools of nursing and nursing programs, including a requirement that the board prepare and maintain a list of approved schools of nursing in this state whose graduates are eligible to apply for a license to practice nursing.This bill would provide that the board’s executive officer is required to develop a uniform method for evaluating requests and granting approvals pursuant to the above-described provisions, as specified, and would require the executive officer to post the uniform method and any revisions on the board’s website. The bill would prohibit an institution of higher education or a private postsecondary school of nursing subject to the above-described provisions from paying any clinical agency or facility for clinical experience placements for students enrolled

Income taxation: exclusion: military survivor benefits.
02/01/2022 - From committee: Filed with the Chief Clerk pursuant to Joint Rule 56.
AB 291, as amended, Seyarto. Income taxation: exclusion: military survivor benefits. The Personal Income Tax Law, in modified conformity with federal law, generally defines “gross income” as income from whatever source derived, except as specifically excluded, and provides various exclusions from gross income for purposes of computing tax liability. Existing law requires any bill authorizing a new tax expenditure to contain, among other things, specific goals, purposes, and objectives that the tax expenditure will achieve, detailed performance indicators, and data collection requirements. This bill, for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2021, and before January 1, 2026, would provide an exclusion from gross income for all survivor benefits or payments received on or after January 1, 2021, and before January 1, 2026, under the federal Survivor Benefit Plan. The bill would require the Franchise Tax Board to submit, on or before December 1, 2025, a report to the Legislature on the income brackets of taxpayers who claimed this exclusion, and would provide findings and declarations relating to the goals, purposes, and objectives of this exclusion. This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy.

Elections: vote by mail ballots.
09/28/2021 - Chaptered by Secretary of State - Chapter 312, Statutes of 2021.
AB 37, Berman. Elections: vote by mail ballots. Existing law requires county elections officials to mail a ballot to every registered voter for all elections proclaimed or conducted prior to January 1, 2022. Existing law requires county elections officials to use a specified Secretary of State vote by mail tracking system or a system that meets the same specifications.This bill would extend the requirements to mail a ballot to every registered voter to all elections and apply them to all local elections officials. This bill would require a vote by mail tracking system to be accessible to voters with disabilities. The bill would also make various conforming and technical changes.Existing law requires county elections officials to permit voters with a disability, and military or overseas voters, to cast a ballot using a certified remote accessible vote by mail system, and required county elections officials to permit any voter to cast a ballot using a certified remote accessible vote by mail system for the November 3, 2020, statewide general election.This bill would require county elections officials to permit any voter to cast a ballot using a certified remote accessible vote by mail system for any election.Under existing law, a vote by mail ballot is timely cast if it is voted on or before election day and, if returned by mail, received by the voter’s elections official via the United States Postal Service, or a bona fide private mail delivery company, no later than 3 days after election day.This bill would provide instead that a vote by mail ballot is timely cast if it is voted on or before election day and, if returned by mail, received no later than 7 days after election day. This bill would authorize an elections official to consider any information from the United States Postal Service or a bona fide private mail delivery company that indicates the date on which the ballot was mailed, in order to determine whether a vote by mail ballot was timely cast.Existing law authorizes a jurisdiction in which vote by mail ballots are cast to begin processing vote by mail ballot return envelopes 29 days before the election. Existing law authorizes a jurisdiction having the necessary computer capability to start processing vote by mail ballots on the 15th business day before the election, except, for the statewide general election held on November 3, 2020, these jurisdictions were authorized to start processing the ballots on the 29th day before the election. Existing law authorizes all other jurisdictions to start processing vote by mail ballots at 5 p.m. on the day before the election.Existing law authorizes a county elections official to establish vote by mail ballot drop-off locations, as defined. Existing law authorizes a county to conduct any election as an all-mailed ballot election under certain specified conditions.This bill would require any county that does not conduct an all-mailed ballot election to provide at least two vote by mail ballot drop-off locations within the jurisdiction where the election is held, or at least one vote by mail ballot drop-off location for every 30,000 registered voters within the jurisdiction where the election is held, whichever results in more vote by mail ballot drop-off locations. In a jurisdiction with fewer than 30,000 registered voters, the bill would require at least one vote by mail ballot drop-off location, and would require the elections official to make a reasonable effort to provide a ballot drop-off location in the jurisdiction where the election is held. This bill would require the operation of vote by mail ballot drop-off locations to meet certain specified criteria.This bill would authorize a jurisdiction having the necessary computer capability to start processing vote by mail ballots the 29th day before any election. By requiring local elections officials to mail a ballot to every registered voter, and to take other actions, this bill

AB 614, Aguiar-Curry. Wildlife habitat: birds. (1) Existing law makes it unlawful to take upland game birds without first procuring a hunting license and an upland game bird hunting validation. Under existing law, moneys derived from upland game bird hunting validations are required to be deposited in the Upland Game Bird Account in the Fish and Game Preservation Fund. Existing law provides that moneys in the account are to be available, upon appropriation, to the Department of Fish and Wildlife to be used solely for the purpose of acquiring land, completing projects and implementing programs to benefit upland game bird species, and expanding public hunting opportunities and related public outreach. Existing law requires an advisory committee, as determined by the department, to review and provide comments to the department on all proposed projects funded by the Upland Game Bird Account to help ensure that specified requirements pertaining to the Upland Game Bird Account have been met. Existing law requires the department to post on its internet website budget information and a brief description for all projects funded from the Upland Game Bird Account.Existing law requires a person to procure a hunting license and a state duck hunting validation to take migratory birds, as specified. Under existing law, moneys derived from state duck hunting validations are required to be deposited in the State Duck Stamp Account in the Fish and Game Preservation Fund. Existing law authorizes moneys in the account to be used for, among other things, projects or endowments approved by the Fish and Game Commission for the purpose of protecting, preserving, restoring, enhancing, and developing migratory waterfowl breeding and wintering habitat, evaluating habitat projects, and conducting waterfowl resource assessments and other waterfowl-related research.This bill would raise by $10 the upland game bird hunting validation and the state duck hunting validation fees, as specified, with that $10 to be deposited, and available upon appropriation to the department for the Nesting Bird Habitat Incentive Program, in the Nesting Bird Habitat Incentive Program Account, which the bill would create in the Fish and Game Preservation Fund.This bill instead would require the Upland Game Bird Account advisory committee to annually review and provide comments to the department on all proposed projects and other expenditures funded from the Upland Game Bird Account to help ensure that specified requirements pertaining to the Upland Game Bird Account have been met and require the department to post budget information and a brief description on its internet website for all projects and other expenditures funded from the Upland Game Bird Account.(2) Existing law establishes the Nesting Bird Habitat Incentive Program, which authorizes the department to include direct payments or other incentives to encourage landowners to voluntarily cultivate or retain upland cover crops or other upland vegetation on idled lands to provide waterfowl, upland game bird, and other wildlife habitat cover for certain purposes, including encouraging the use of idled agricultural lands for wildlife habitat, as specified. Existing law authorizes state or federal grants, state bond moneys, and private grants and donations to be allocated by the department for the purposes of the program.This bill would revise and recast the program to authorize the inclusion of direct payments or other incentives to encourage landowners, as defined, to voluntarily cultivate or retain upland cover crops, cereal grains, grasses, forbs, pollinator plants, or a combination thereof to provide waterfowl and other game bird nesting habitat cover for certain purposes, including encouraging the use of agricultural lands for wildlife habitat, as specified.

AB 1041, Wicks. Employment: leave. (1) Existing law, commonly known as the California Family Rights Act, makes it an unlawful employment practice for a California public employer or an employer with 5 or more employees to refuse to grant a request from an employee who meets specified requirements to take up to a total of 12 workweeks in any 12-month period for family care and medical leave, as defined.This bill would expand the class of people for whom an employee may take leave to care for to include a designated person. The bill would define “designated person” to mean any individual related by blood or whose association with the employee is the equivalent of a family relationship. The bill would authorize a designated person to be identified at the time the employee requests the leave. The bill would authorize an employer to limit an employee to one designated person per 12-month period.(2) Existing law, the Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014, generally entitles an employee who works in California for the same employer for 30 or more days within a year to paid sick days, as specified, including the use of paid sick days for diagnosis, care, or treatment of an existing health condition of, or preventive care for, an employee or an employee’s family member. Existing law defines “family member” for this purpose to include individuals who share a prescribed relationship with the employee.This bill would expand the definition of the term “family member” to include a designated person, which, for purposes of these provisions, would mean a person identified by the employee at the time the employee requests paid sick days, subject to limitation by the employer, as prescribed.

AB 1314, Ramos. Emergency notification: Feather Alert: endangered indigenous people. Existing law, the California Emergency Services Act, authorizes use of the Emergency Alert System to inform the public of local, state, and national emergencies. Existing law requires a law enforcement agency to activate the Emergency Alert System within the appropriate area if that agency determines that a child 17 years of age or younger, or an individual with a proven mental or physical disability, has been abducted and is in imminent danger of serious bodily injury or death, and there is information available that, if disseminated to the general public, could assist in the safe recovery of that person. Existing law also authorizes the issuance and coordination of a Blue Alert following an attack upon a law enforcement officer or a Silver Alert relating to a person who is 65 years of age or older who is reported missing.This bill would authorize a law enforcement agency to request the Department of the California Highway Patrol to activate a “Feather Alert,” as defined, if specified criteria are satisfied with respect to an endangered indigenous person who has been reported missing under unexplained or suspicious circumstances. The bill would require the department, if it concurs that specified requirements are met, to activate a Feather Alert within the appropriate geographical area requested by the investigating law enforcement agency and to assist the agency by disseminating specified alert messages and signs. The bill would require the department to create and submit a report to the Governor’s Office and the Legislature that includes an evaluation of the notification system established pursuant to these provisions no later than January 1, 2027.

Existing law requires the Department of Veterans Affairs to acquire, study, design, develop, construct, and equip a state-owned and state-operated Southern California Veterans Cemetery in the County of Orange at one of 2 possible sites, as specified. Existing law requires the department to, after completing acquisition studies on both sites, consult with the Department of General Services to determine which site to pursue based on the economic feasibility, benefits to veterans and City of Irvine residents, and availability of each location. Existing law makes honorably discharged veterans, their spouses, and dependent children eligible for interment in the cemetery, as specified.This bill would delete those site selection requirements and would instead require the department to acquire, study, design, develop, construct, and equip a state-owned and state-operated Southern California Veterans Cemetery in the County of Orange. The bill would require the department to conduct an acquisition study, in consultation with the Department of General Services, to assess the feasibility and costs of construction of the cemetery.The bill would additionally create the Southern California Veterans Cemetery Study Donation Fund, and would authorize any local governmental entity or private organization in the County of Orange to donate to the fund. The bill would authorize the department, upon receipt of sufficient moneys, to conduct a study of the feasibility of a site formally proposed by a local government in the County of Orange for the purpose of establishing a Southern California Veterans Cemetery, as specified. The bill would continuously appropriate moneys in the fund to the department for these purposes. The bill would require any excess funds to be returned to the donor if requested, and to otherwise be used for the design, development, construction, and equipment of the cemetery.This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.

09/29/2022 - Chaptered by Secretary of State - Chapter 771, Statutes of 2022.
AB 160, Committee on Budget. Public safety trailer bill. (1) Existing law prohibits a firearm industry member, as defined, from engaging in advertising or marketing related to firearms that is intended for minors or reasonably appears to be attractive to minors, as specified.This bill would exempt from this prohibition any advertising that is offering or promoting classes or events related to firearm safety, hunting, or sport shooting, as specified, or promoting membership in any organization.(2) Existing law generally provides for the compensation of victims and derivative victims of specified types of crimes by the California Victim Compensation Board from the Restitution Fund, which is continuously appropriated to the board. Existing law prohibits the board from granting compensation to a person who is convicted of a violent felony, as prescribed, until that person has been discharged from probation or has been released from a correctional institution and has been discharged from parole, or has been discharged from postrelease community supervision or mandatory supervision, if any, for that violent crime. This bill would instead prohibit compensation from being granted to a person in the above circumstances until after that person has been released from a correctional institution. (3) Existing law authorizes the board to compensate for pecuniary loss, including compensation equal to the loss of income or loss of support, or both, that a victim or derivative victim incurs as a direct result of the victim’s or derivative victim’s injury or the victim’s death, as specified. Existing law also provides limits on the compensation a victim and derivative victim may receive. This bill would authorize the board, in authorizing compensation for loss of income and support, to base the loss of income on the actual loss the victim sustains or the wages that an employee would earn, as specified, during the period that the victim is unable to work or seek work as a result of the injury for adult victims, and upon the loss the victim actually sustains for victims who are under 18 years of age at the time of the crime, as specified. The bill would also specify that an adult derivative victim and a derivative victim who was legally dependent on the victim at the time of the crime are also similarly eligible for compensation for loss of income, as specified. The bill would specify that if a victim is a minor at the time of the crime, the victim is eligible for future loss of income, calculated as specified.This bill would specify that if an adult victim or derivative victim was not employed or receiving earned income benefits at the time of the crime, the victim or derivative victim, as applicable, shall be eligible for loss of income if they were fully or partially employed or receiving income benefits for a total of at least 2 weeks in the 12 months preceding the qualifying crime, or had an offer of employment at the time of the crime and was unable to begin employment as a result of the crime, as specified. The bill would specify that if a derivative victim who is otherwise eligible for loss of support is eligible for loss of support if the deceased victim was not employed or receiving earned income benefits at the time of the crime, but the deceased victim was fully or partially employed or receiving earned income benefits for a total of at least 2 weeks in the 12 months preceding the qualifying crime, if the victim had an offer of employment at the time of the crime and was unable to begin employment as a result of the crime.This bill would require the board, by July 1, 2025, to adopt new guidelines to rely on a range of evidence in considering and approving claims for loss of income, as specified.The bill would also remove or raise various limits on the compensation a victim and derivative victim may receive, as specified. By expanding the eligibility for, and by increasing or removing limits on, co

Workers’ compensation: COVID-19: critical workers.
09/29/2022 - Chaptered by Secretary of State - Chapter 758, Statutes of 2022.
AB 1751, Daly. Workers’ compensation: COVID-19: critical workers. Existing law establishes a workers’ compensation system, administered by the Administrative Director of the Division of Workers’ Compensation, to compensate an employee, as defined, for injuries sustained in the course of employment. Existing law creates a disputable presumption that specified injuries sustained in the course of employment of a specified member of law enforcement or a specified first responder arose out of and in the course of the employment. Existing law governs the procedures for filing a claim for workers’ compensation, including filing a claim form, and provides that an injury is presumed compensable if liability is not rejected within 90 days after the claim form is filed, as specified. Existing case law provides for how certain presumptions may be rebutted.Existing law defines “injury” for an employee to include illness or death resulting from the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) under specified circumstances, until January 1, 2023. Existing law creates a disputable presumption, as specified, that the injury arose out of and in the course of the employment and is compensable, for specified dates of injury. Existing law requires an employee to exhaust their paid sick leave benefits and meet specified certification requirements before receiving any temporary disability benefits or, for police officers, firefighters, and other specified employees, a leave of absence. Existing law also make a claim relating to a COVID-19 illness presumptively compensable, as described above, after 30 days or 45 days, rather than 90 days. Existing law, until January 1, 2023, allows for a presumption of injury for all employees whose fellow employees at their place of employment experience specified levels of positive testing, and whose employer has 5 or more employees.This bill would extend the above-described provisions relating to COVID-19 until January 1, 2024. The bill would also expand the above-described provisions applicable to firefighters and police officers to include active firefighting members of a fire department at the State Department of State Hospitals, the State Department of Developmental Services, the Military Department, and the Department of Veterans Affairs and to officers of a state hospital under the jurisdiction of the State Department of State Hospitals and the State Department of Developmental Services.

Existing law allows a person convicted of a felony or a person who is convicted of a misdemeanor violation of a registrable sex offense to file a petition for a certificate of rehabilitation and pardon if, among other requirements, the accusatory pleading has since been dismissed and the person has not been incarcerated since the dismissal.This bill would allow a person convicted of a felony, other than a registrable sex offense, to file a petition without certain requirements including, among other requirements, the dismissal of the accusatory pleading and that the person has not been incarcerated since the dismissal. The bill would retain the existing requirements for filing a petition for any person convicted of a registrable sex offense.

AB 2019, Petrie-Norris. Small business enterprises. (1) Existing law requires each state agency that significantly regulates or impacts small business to designate at least one person to serve as a small business liaison for the agency. Existing law requires the small business liaison to be responsible for, among other things, receiving and responding to complaints received by the agency from small businesses and assisting in ensuring that the procurement and contracting processes of the entity are administered in order to meet or exceed the goal of 25% small business participation.This bill would also require the small business liaison to develop an “economic equity first” action plan and policy for the agency to provide, among other things, direction, recommendations, and strategies as to how to ensure that small businesses, as specified, are effectively involved and benefiting from the agency’s procurement process. The bill would require the action plan and policy to be adopted by January 1, 2024. The bill would require the action plan to include, as part of a general outreach effort to all small businesses, education, outreach, and stakeholder engagement with representative business organizations and business enterprises owned by women, minorities, and members of the LGBTQ community.(2) Existing law establishes the Office of Small Business Advocate within the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, also known as GO-Biz, and prescribes the duties and functions of the Small Business Advocate, who is also the Director of the Office of Small Business Advocate. Existing law requires the advocate to prepare and submit a written annual report to the Governor and the Legislature that describes the activities and recommendations of the office, including an evaluation of the efforts of state agencies and, where appropriate, specific departments, that significantly regulate small businesses to assist minority and other small business enterprises, and make appropriate recommendations to assist the development of these enterprises.This bill would require the annual report to also include details regarding the office’s activities to support procurement participation by small businesses, microbusinesses, disabled veteran business enterprises, and businesses owned by women, minorities, or members of the LGBTQ community that also qualify as a small business, microbusiness, or disabled veteran business enterprise, as well as compliance and implementation of specified action plans and policies by state agency liaisons and advocates. The bill would require each state agency to provide information regarding its activities to the advocate upon request.Existing law requires the advocate to post certain information on the GO-Biz or the advocate’s internet website, including how to receive assistance in certifying as a small business and identifying and participating in state procurement opportunities.This bill would require the above-described information, and also information in receiving assistance in certifying as a disabled veteran business enterprise, to be easily accessible from the homepage of the Go-Biz internet website.(3) Existing law, the Small Business Procurement and Contract Act, declares that it is essential that opportunity is provided for full participation in our free enterprise system by small business enterprises. This bill would also declare that the state economy is strengthened by the diversity and resiliency of its small businesses and that it is essential to ensure all small businesses are able to fully participate in the domestic and global markets, including businesses owned by women and other specified groups.Existing law requires the Director of General Services and the heads of other state agencies that enter into contracts for the acquisition of goods, services, and information technology and for the construction of state facilities to establish goals for the partici

AB 2032, Eduardo Garcia. Ending Military and Veteran Suicide Task Force. Existing law, the California Suicide Prevention Act of 2000, allows the State Department of Health Care Services, contingent upon appropriation, to establish and implement a suicide prevention, education, and gatekeeper training program to reduce the severity, duration, and incidence of suicidal behaviors. Existing law authorizes the State Department of Public Health to establish the Office of Suicide Prevention to, among other things, convene experts and stakeholders, including, but not limited to, stakeholders representing populations with high rates of suicide, to encourage collaboration and coordination of resources for suicide prevention.This bill would require the department to establish an Ending Military and Veteran Suicide Task Force within the Office of Suicide Prevention to systematically reduce military and veteran suicides and to develop a plan to eliminate all military and veteran suicides in the state, as specified. Commencing June 1, 2025, the bill would require the task force to submit a specified report to the Governor and the Legislature on the state of veteran suicide prevention, as specified, including, among other things, an analysis of the plans, activities, strategies, and programs undertaken pursuant to the task force’s recommendations and their effects on reducing military and veteran suicides in the state.

AB 2135, Irwin. Information security. Existing law establishes the Office of Information Security within the Department of Technology for the purpose of ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of state systems and applications and to promote and protect privacy as part of the development and operations of state systems and applications to ensure the trust of the residents of this state. The law requires an entity within the executive branch that is under the direct authority of the Governor to implement the policies and procedures issued by the office. The law additionally authorizes the office to conduct, or require to be conducted, an independent security assessment of every state agency, department, or office, as specified. The law authorizes the Military Department to perform an independent security assessment of any state agency, department, or office.This bill would require state agencies not covered by the provisions described above to adopt and implement information security and privacy policies, standards, and procedures based upon standards issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Federal Information Processing Standards, as specified. The bill would require these state agencies to perform a comprehensive, independent security assessment every 2 years and would authorize them to contract with the Military Department, or with a qualified responsible vendor, for that purpose.This bill would require these state agencies to certify, by February 1 annually, to the President pro Tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the Assembly that the agency is in compliance with all adopted policies, standards, and procedures and to include a plan of action and milestones, as specified. The bill would require that the certification be kept confidential and not be disclosed, except that the information and records would be allowed to be shared, maintaining a chain of custody, with the members of the Legislature and legislative employees, at the discretion of the President pro Tempore of the Senate or the Speaker of the Assembly.Because the required certification would be made under penalty of perjury, the bill would expand the crime of perjury and would thereby impose a state-mandated local program.Existing constitutional provisions require that a statute that limits the right of access to the meetings of public bodies or the writings of public officials and agencies be adopted with findings demonstrating the interest protected by the limitation and the need for protecting that interest.This bill would make legislative findings to that effect.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 no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.

AB 2271, Gipson. Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority: contracting: local businesses. Existing law creates the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro), with various powers and duties with respect to transportation planning, programming, construction, and operations. Existing law authorizes LA Metro to provide for a small business preference of 5% of the lowest responsible bidder meeting specifications, with respect to contracts in construction, the construction component of a design-build team, the procurement of goods, or the delivery of services. Existing law also authorizes LA Metro to set aside work for competition, until January 1, 2024, (1) among certified small business enterprises and award each contract to the certified small business enterprise that is the lowest responsible bidder whenever the expected expenditure required exceeds $5,000 but is less than $3,000,000, as specified, and (2) among medium business enterprises for no more than 20 contracts and award each contract to the medium business enterprise that is the lowest responsible bidder whenever the expected expenditure required exceeds $3,000,000 but is less than $30,000,000, as provided. Existing law defines a small business enterprise and medium business enterprise for these purposes.This bill would authorize LA Metro to also provide for a local small business enterprise preference of 5% of the lowest responsible bidder meeting specifications, with respect to contracts in construction, the construction component of a design-build team, the procurement of goods, or the delivery of services, and to provide the preference to nonlocal businesses if the bid includes a 30% participation by local small business enterprises. The bill would define a local small business enterprise for these purposes. The bill would extend, to January 1, 2028, the authorization described above for LA Metro to set aside work for competition among certified small business enterprises and medium business enterprises and award those contracts to those certified small business enterprises and medium business enterprises that are lowest responsible bidders. The bill would increase the limitation on the expected expenditure required for those contracts LA Metro may award to small business enterprises to be less than $5,000,000 instead of $3,000,000. The bill would increase the minimum expected expenditure required for those contracts LA Metro may award to medium business enterprises to be greater than $5,000,000 instead of $3,000,000. If LA Metro awards contracts pursuant to these provisions, the bill would require LA Metro to submit a report to the Legislature by December 31, 2026, on the contracts issued between January 1, 2019, and December 31, 2026, including the number of employees working at a medium business enterprise receiving awards, as provided.

Surplus land: former military base land.
09/30/2022 - Chaptered by Secretary of State - Chapter 963, Statutes of 2022.
AB 2319, Mia Bonta. Surplus land: former military base land. Existing law prescribes requirements for the disposal of surplus land by a local agency. Existing law defines “surplus land” for these purposes to mean land owned in fee simple by any local agency for which the local agency’s governing body takes formal action declaring that the land is surplus and is not necessary for the agency’s use. Existing law provides that an agency is not required to follow the requirements for disposal of surplus land for “exempt surplus land” except as provided. Existing law categorizes as “exempt surplus land” surplus land that a local agency is transferring to another local, state, or federal agency for the agency’s use.This bill would add to the definition of “exempt surplus land,” land that is a former military base conveyed by the federal government to a local agency, is subject to certain provisions governing the Alameda Naval Air Station and the Fleet Industrial Supply Center, and meets other specified conditions. These conditions would include, among others, that the former military base has an aggregate area greater than 5 acres, is expected to include a mix of residential and nonresidential uses, is expected to include no fewer than 1,400 residential units upon completion of development or redevelopment of the former military base, the affordability requirements for residential units are required to be governed by a settlement agreement entered into prior to September 1, 2020, and that prior to the disposition of the surplus land, the recipient has negotiated a project labor agreement, as specified. The bill would impose a penalty of 30% of the final sale price of the land upon a local agency that disposes of land in violation of these provisions after receiving notification thereof from the Department of Housing and Community Development, and a 50% penalty for subsequent violations, subject to an opportunity to cure or correct an alleged violation. The bill would require a penalty assessed pursuant to these provisions to be deposited into a local housing trust fund or, in certain circumstances, the Building Homes and Jobs Trust Fund or the Housing Rehabilitation Loan Fund, as provided. The bill would make the expenditure of penalty moneys deposited into the Building Homes and Jobs Trust Fund or the Housing Rehabilitation Loan Fund pursuant to these provisions subject to appropriation by the Legislature.This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the City of Alameda.

09/28/2022 - Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 721, Statutes of 2022.
SB 1209, Eggman. Sentencing: members of military: trauma. Existing law requires a court, if it concludes that a defendant convicted of a felony offense is or was a member of the United States military who may be suffering from sexual trauma, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, or mental health problems as a result of the defendant’s military service, to consider that circumstance as a factor in mitigation when imposing a sentence. Existing law allows a defendant who is currently serving a felony sentence and meets these criteria to petition for resentencing if those criteria were not considered at the time of sentencing and the person was sentenced prior to January 1, 2015.This bill would allow a defendant meeting these criteria to petition for recall of sentence and resentencing, as specified, without regard to whether the defendant was sentenced prior to January 1, 2015. The bill would also exclude from special consideration and from resentencing, any person convicted of, or having a prior conviction for, certain violent and sexual offenses.

Veterans: protections.
09/27/2022 - Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 620, Statutes of 2022.
SB 1311, Eggman. Veterans: protections. Existing law establishes a statutory cause of action for unfair competition, including any unlawful, unfair, or fraudulent business act or practice and unfair, deceptive, untrue, or misleading advertising. Existing law requires a person who engages or proposes to engage in unfair competition to be liable for a civil penalty of not more than $2,500, per violation, which is assessed and recovered in an action brought by certain public officials, including the Attorney General.This bill, the Military and Veteran Consumer Protection Act of 2022, would make a person who violates those provisions, if the violation is perpetrated against one or more service members or veterans, liable for an additional civil penalty not to exceed $2,500 for each violation, as specified.Existing law prohibits any individual other than the plaintiff and the defendant from taking part in the conduct or defense of a small claims action. Existing law makes various exceptions to this prohibition, including allowing a representative for a plaintiff who is serving on active duty in the United States Armed Forces outside the state, was assigned to their duty station after the claim arose, is on the assignment for more than 6 months, has a representative serving without compensation, and the representative has appeared in small claims actions on behalf of others no more than 4 times during the calendar year.This bill would expand that exception to authorize the plaintiff who is a service member, as defined, to appear via video appearance or have a representative if the service member is assigned to a location more than 100 miles from the court where the action is proceeding, or is otherwise unable to personally appear due to the performance of military duty, the representative is serving without compensation other than compensation from the United States or the State of California, and, except with regards to a representative employed by the United States or the State of California, the representative has appeared in small claims actions on behalf of others no more than 4 times in the calendar year.Existing law prohibits a person, in connection with the collection of any obligation from a member of the active militia or a member of the active or reserve components of the Armed Forces, from contacting the member’s military unit or chain of command without the written consent of the member given after the obligation becomes due and payable.This bill would prohibit a person from, in connection with any transaction or any sale of goods or services, electronically accessing a Common Access Card (CAC) issued to a service member, placing or requiring the placement of such a CAC in a smart card reader, requesting or requesting entry of the personal identification number (PIN) associated with such a CAC, or requiring a service member to log in to any Department of Defense or, in the case of a member of the Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security computer system. The bill would prohibit a person from conditioning the receipt of a military or veteran discount on the waiver by the person of any right under state or federal law. The bill would make a waiver of any right provided by specified laws to service members, former service members, or their dependents void. The bill would make a violation of these provisions a misdemeanor. By expanding the scope of a crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.Existing law authorizes a service member to terminate a lease of a motor vehicle if the service member executes the lease while in a period of military service and then receives military orders for a change of permanent station from a location in the continental United States to a location outside the continental United States, or from a location in a state outside the continental United States to any location outside that state, or to deploy with a military unit, or as an individu

Workers’ compensation: firefighters and peace officers: post-traumatic stress.
09/29/2022 - In Senate. Consideration of Governor's veto pending.
SB 284, Stern. Workers’ compensation: firefighters and peace officers: post-traumatic stress. Existing law establishes a workers’ compensation system, administered by the Administrative Director of the Division of Workers’ Compensation, to compensate an employee for injuries sustained in the course of employment. Existing law provides, only until January 1, 2025, that, for certain state and local firefighting personnel and peace officers, the term “injury” includes post-traumatic stress that develops or manifests during a period in which the injured person is in the service of the department or unit, but applies only to injuries occurring on or after January 1, 2020. Existing law requires the compensation awarded pursuant to this provision to include full hospital, surgical, medical treatment, disability indemnity, and death benefits.This bill would make that provision applicable to active firefighting members of the State Department of State Hospitals, the State Department of Developmental Services, the Military Department, and the Department of Veterans Affairs, and to additional peace officers, including security officers of the Department of Justice when performing assigned duties as security officers and the officers of a state hospital under the jurisdiction of the State Department of State Hospitals or the State Department of Developmental Services, among other officers. The bill would also make that provision applicable to public safety dispatchers, public safety telecommunicators, and emergency response communication employees, as defined.

Contraceptive Equity Act of 2022.
09/27/2022 - Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 630, Statutes of 2022.
SB 523, Leyva. Contraceptive Equity Act of 2022. (1) Existing law, the Knox-Keene Health Care Service Plan Act of 1975, provides for the licensure and regulation of health care service plans by the Department of Managed Health Care and makes a willful violation of the act a crime. Existing law provides for the regulation of health insurers by the Department of Insurance. Existing law establishes health care coverage requirements for contraceptives, including, but not limited to, requiring a health care service plan, including a Medi-Cal managed care plan, or a health insurance policy issued, amended, renewed, or delivered on or after January 1, 2017, to cover up to a 12-month supply of federal Food and Drug Administration approved, self-administered hormonal contraceptives when dispensed at one time for an enrollee or insured by a provider or pharmacist, or at a location licensed or authorized to dispense drugs or supplies. This bill, the Contraceptive Equity Act of 2022, would make various changes to expand coverage of contraceptives by a health care service plan contract or health insurance policy issued, amended, renewed, or delivered on and after January 1, 2024, including requiring a health care service plan or health insurer to provide point-of-sale coverage for over-the-counter FDA-approved contraceptive drugs, devices, and products at in-network pharmacies without cost sharing or medical management restrictions. The bill would require health care service plans and insurance policies offered by public or private institutions of higher learning that directly provide health care services only to its students, faculty, staff, administration, and their respective dependents, issued, amended, renewed, or delivered, on or after January 1, 2024, to comply with these contraceptive coverage requirements. The bill would also require coverage for clinical services related to the provision or use of contraception, as specified. The bill would revise provisions applicable when a covered, therapeutic equivalent of a drug, device, or product is deemed medically inadvisable by deferring to the provider, as specified.This bill would also prohibit a health care service plan contract or disability insurance policy issued, amended, renewed, or delivered on or after January 1, 2024, with certain exceptions, from imposing a deductible, coinsurance, copayment, or any other cost-sharing requirement on vasectomy services and procedures, as specified, under conditions similar to those applicable to other contraceptive coverage.This bill would require a health benefit plan or contract with the Board of Public Relations of the Public Employees’ Retirement System to provide coverage for contraceptives and vasectomies consistent with the bill’s requirements, commencing January 1, 2024. The bill would prohibit the California State University and the University of California from approving a health benefit plan that does not comply with the contraceptive coverage requirements of the bill on and after January 1, 2024.Because a willful violation of the bill’s requirements by a health care service plan would be a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.(2) Existing law, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), establishes the Civil Rights Department within the Business, Consumer Services, and Housing Agency, under the direction of the Director of Civil Rights, to enforce civil rights laws with respect to housing and employment and to protect and safeguard the right of all persons to obtain and hold employment without discrimination based on specified characteristics or status, including, but not limited to, race, age, sex, or medical condition.The FEHA makes certain discriminatory employment and housing practices unlawful, and authorizes a person claiming to be aggrieved by an alleged unlawful practice to file a verified complaint with the Civil Rights Department.

09/30/2022 - Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 918, Statutes of 2022.
SB 532, Caballero. Pupil instruction: high school coursework and graduation requirements: exemptions and alternatives. (1) Existing law requires a local educational agency, as defined, to exempt a pupil in foster care, a pupil who is a homeless child or youth, a former juvenile court school pupil, a pupil who is a child of a military family, or a pupil who is a migratory child who transfers between schools any time after the completion of the pupil’s 2nd year of high school, or a pupil participating in an English language proficiency program for newly arrived immigrant pupils and who is in their 3rd or 4th year of high school, from all coursework and other requirements adopted by the governing body of the local educational agency that are in addition to the statewide coursework requirements necessary to receive a diploma of graduation from high school, unless the local educational agency makes a finding that the pupil is reasonably able to complete the local educational agency’s graduation requirements in time to graduate from high school by the end of the pupil’s 4th year of high school.This bill, among other things, would require the local educational agency to instead consult with a pupil described-above and the person holding the right to make educational decisions for the pupil, of the option to remain in school for a 5th year if the local educational agency determines the pupil is reasonably able to complete the local educational agency’s graduation requirements within the pupil’s 5th year of high school and would, until January 1, 2028, require that consultation and option to be provided if the local educational agency determines the pupil is not reasonably able to complete the local graduation requirements within a 5th year but is reasonably able to complete the statewide graduation requirements within the pupil’s 5th year of high school, as provided.If the pupil does not qualify for an exemption in the year in which the pupil transfers between schools, the bill would require the local educational agency to reevaluate the pupil’s eligibility for the exemption, as specified. The bill would apply these provisions to, among others, pupils described above who are enrolled in an adult education program, regardless of the pupil’s age, as specified, and certain additional pupils in foster care.(2) Existing law requires a school district, county office of education, or a school within those entities, or a charter school, to accept full credit or partial credits for coursework satisfactorily completed by certain pupils at a prior school and prohibits a requirement for the pupil to retake that coursework at the new school, except as specified. Existing law requires any partial credits to be applied to an equivalent course at the new school, as specified.This bill would require the transferring school or entity to issue and the new school or entity to accept and issue those credits on their respective official transcript for the pupil, as specified. The bill would require a new school or entity that enrolls a pupil with a transcript that it knows does not include any of those credits to contact the transferring school or entity within 2 business days and the transferring school or entity to issue the appropriate credits and provide all academic and other records to the new school or entity within 2 business days of the request.(3) Existing law establishes procedures for the transfer of pupils in foster care between schools and requires the transferring local educational agency to compile the complete educational record of the pupil, including a determination of seat time, full or partial credits earned, and current classes and grades. This bill would require the educational record to also include a determination of days of enrollment or seat time, or both if applicable, and an official transcript with full and partial credits earned, or any measure of full or partial coursework being satisfac

SB 599, Hueso. Public Utilities Commission: proceedings, reports, and public utility procurement. (1) The California Constitution establishes the Public Utilities Commission and authorizes the commission to exercise ratemaking and rulemaking authority over all public utilities, as defined, subject to control by the Legislature. The Public Utilities Act requires the commission to determine whether each proceeding is a quasi-legislative, an adjudication, a ratesetting, or a catastrophic wildfire proceeding. Existing law requires the commission to establish a “quiet period” during the 3 business days before the commission’s scheduled vote on a decision in a ratesetting case, and authorizes the commission to establish a quiet period during other specified periods of a ratesetting case and during the 3 business days before the commission’s scheduled vote on a decision in a catastrophic wildfire proceeding, as specified. Existing law authorizes the commission to meet in closed session during the quiet period of a ratesetting case and at any point during the pendency of the catastrophic wildfire proceeding, as specified.This bill would revise and recast these provisions relating to quiet periods and the authority for closed session commission meetings during ratesetting cases and catastrophic wildfire proceedings.(2) Existing law establishes the California Solar Initiative, a program providing ratepayer funded incentives for eligible solar energy systems adopted by the Public Utilities Commission, as provided. Existing law requires, on or before June 30 of each year, the commission to submit to the Legislature an assessment of the success of the program.This bill would repeal that requirement on January 1, 2024.(3) Existing law requires the Public Utilities Commission to require every electrical corporation, gas corporation, water corporation, wireless telecommunications service provider, electric service provider, and telephone corporation with annual gross California revenues exceeding $25,000,000, and their regulated subsidiaries and affiliates, to annually submit a detailed and verifiable plan for increasing procurement from women, minority, disabled veteran, and LGBT business enterprises, as specified. Existing law requires the commission to require every electrical corporation, gas corporation, water corporation, wireless telecommunications service provider, electric service provider, and telephone corporation with gross annual California revenues exceeding $15,000,000, but not more than $25,000,000, to annually submit data in a simplified form to the commission on its procurement from women, minority, disabled veteran, and LGBT business enterprises, as specified. Existing law requires each community choice aggregator with gross annual revenues exceeding $15,000,000 to annually submit a report to the commission regarding its procurement from women, minority, disabled veteran, and LGBT business enterprises, as specified. Existing law requires the commission, by September 1 of each year, to report certain information relative to those activities undertaken in the implementation of those plans.This bill would require the commission to also include in the report the progress of activities undertaken by electric service providers with gross annual California revenues exceeding $25,000,000, by community choice aggregators with gross annual revenues exceeding $15,000,000, and by electrical corporations, gas corporations, water corporations, wireless telecommunications service providers, electric service providers, and telephone corporations with gross annual California revenues exceeding $15,000,000, but not more than $25,000,000.(4) Existing law requires the commission to require every electrical, gas, water, wireless telecommunications service provider, and telephone corporation with gross annual revenues exceeding $25,000,000, and their commission-regulated subsidiaries and affiliates, to implement a

The bill would provide that, to the extent feasible and consistent with other laws, the low-income housing tax credit program and tax-exempt bonds for qualified residential rental property used for affordable housing may be used to support access to housing that would allow households facing or at risk of displacement to remain in the community. The bill would specify that a local tenant preference adopted pursuant to the bill’s provisions is subject to the duty of public agencies to affirmatively further fair housing, as specified. The bill would require any local government adopting a local tenant preference policy to create a webpage on its internet website containing the ordinance and its supporting materials, and to annually submit a link to its tenant preference webpage to the Department of Housing and Community Development. The bill would require the department to post on its internet website a list of jurisdictions that have tenant preference policies. The bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2033.

09/28/2022 - Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 710, Statutes of 2022.
SB 932, Portantino. General plans: circulation element: bicycle and pedestrian plans and traffic calming plans. Existing law states the Legislature’s intention that a county or city general plan and the elements and parts of that general plan comprise an integrated, internally consistent and compatible statement of policies for the adopting agency.This bill would emphasize the intent of the Legislature to support and encourage communities in reaching environmental and climate change objectives with these provisions. Existing law, the Planning and Zoning Law, requires the legislative body of a city or county to adopt a comprehensive general plan that includes various elements, including a circulation element. Existing law requires the circulation element to consist of the general location and extent of existing and proposed major thoroughfares, transportation routes, terminals, any military airports and ports, and other local public utilities and facilities. Existing law requires the legislative body, upon any substantive revision of the circulation element, to modify the circulation element to plan for a balanced, multimodal transportation network that meets the needs of all users of streets, roads, and highways for safe and convenient travel in a manner that is suitable to the rural, suburban, or urban context of the general plan. Existing law defines “users of streets, roads, and highways” to mean bicyclists, children, persons with disabilities, motorists, movers of commercial goods, pedestrians, users of public transportation, and seniors.This bill would require the legislative body, upon any substantive revision of the circulation element, on or after January 1, 2025, to incorporate the principles of the Federal Highway Administration’s Safe System Approach and to develop bicycle plans, pedestrian plans, and traffic calming plans based on the policies and goals in the circulation element that, among other things, sets goals for initiation and completion of all actions identified in the plans within 25 years of the date of adoption of the modified circulation element, as specified. By adding to the duties of county and city officials in the administration of their land use planning duties, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.This bill would require a county or city to begin implementation of the plan within 2 years of the date of adoption of the plan, to regularly review its progress towards completing implementation of the modified circulation element, and to consider revising the circulation element if it determines it will not reach the goals of the bicycle, pedestrian, or traffic calming plans within 25 years of the date of adoption of the modified circulation element.This bill would state the intent of the Legislature that cities and counties use existing transportation funding to achieve the goals of these provisions. The bill would define various terms for its purposes.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state.

Existing federal law also establishes the HOME Investment Partnership Program to, among other things, expand the supply of affordable housing. Existing law designates the department as the state agency responsible for administering the HOME Investment Partnership Act. This bill would prohibit the department from requiring a project-specific transition reserve, as defined, for any unit subject to a qualified project rental or operating subsidy. This bill would create the Pooled Transition Reserve Fund and would continuously appropriate moneys in that fund to the department for the purpose of establishing and maintaining a pooled transition reserve, as defined. This bill would prescribe the sources from which the fund may receive moneys, and would make a transfer of $5,000,000 to the Pooled Transition Reserve Fund from the Housing Rehabilitation Loan Fund. By establishing, and transferring moneys to, a continuously appropriated fund, the bill would make an appropriation. This bill would authorize the department to charge a fee to a development that receives qualified project rental or operating subsidies at the time of permanent loan closing, not to exceed the department’s reasonable costs to capitalize the reserve fund and cover administrative costs, to be deposited in the fund. This bill would authorize the department to adopt guidelines to implement these provisions and would exempt the adoption, amendment, or repeal of those guidelines from the rulemaking provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act. This bill would provide that these provisions apply to units financed by any department-administered program, for which permanent loan closing has not occurred prior to January 1, 2023, as specified.Existing law, the No Place Like Home Program, as ratified and amended by Proposition 2, which was approved by the voters at the November 6, 2018, statewide general election, provides funding to provide permanent supportive housing for a specified target population, which is defined to include individuals who have a serious mental disorder and who are homeless, chronically homeless, or at risk of chronic homelessness. Existing law authorizes the Legislature to amend Proposition 2 by a 2/3 vote, so long as the amendment is consistent with and furthers the intent of that measure.The bill would state the findings of the Legislature that these provisions are consistent with, and further the intent of, the No Place Like Home Act.

09/30/2022 - Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 877, Statutes of 2022.
SB 950, Archuleta. CalFresh: income eligibility: basic allowance for housing. Existing federal law provides for the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), known in California as CalFresh, under which supplemental nutrition assistance benefits allocated to the state by the federal government are distributed to eligible individuals by each county. Existing federal law establishes eligibility requirements, including specified income eligibility standards, for receipt of CalFresh benefits.This bill would require the State Department of Social Services, on or before July 1, 2023, and annually thereafter, to submit a request for a federal waiver to exclude the basic allowance for housing provided to specified uniformed service members from countable income in the determination of eligibility and benefit level for purposes of receiving CalFresh benefits. The bill would, upon federal approval of the waiver, require the department, in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association of California, advocates for CalFresh recipients, and the Military Department, to issue an all-county letter instructing counties on updated eligibility requirements and benefit calculations for uniformed service members receiving a basic allowance for housing. To the extent the bill would expand the duties of counties, the 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.

Sentencing: members of military: trauma.
09/06/2022 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 3:30 p.m.
SB 1209, Eggman. Sentencing: members of military: trauma. Existing law requires a court, if it concludes that a defendant convicted of a felony offense is or was a member of the United States military who may be suffering from sexual trauma, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, or mental health problems as a result of the defendant’s military service, to consider that circumstance as a factor in mitigation when imposing a sentence. Existing law allows a defendant who is currently serving a felony sentence and meets these criteria to petition for resentencing if those criteria were not considered at the time of sentencing and the person was sentenced prior to January 1, 2015.This bill would allow a defendant meeting these criteria to petition for recall of sentence and resentencing, as specified, without regard to whether the defendant was sentenced prior to January 1, 2015. The bill would also exclude from special consideration and from resentencing, any person convicted of, or having a prior conviction for, certain violent and sexual offenses.

SB 1237 - Josh Newman
Licenses: military service.
08/23/2022 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 12:30 p.m.
SB 1237, Newman. Licenses: military service. Existing law provides for the regulation of various professions and vocations by boards within the Department of Consumer Affairs and for the licensure or registration of individuals in that regard. Existing law authorizes any licensee or registrant whose license expired while the licensee or registrant was on active duty as a member of the California National Guard or the United States Armed Forces to reinstate the licensee’s or registrant’s license without examination or penalty if certain requirements are met.Existing law requires the boards described above, with certain exceptions, to waive the renewal fees, continuing education requirements, and other renewal requirements as determined by the board, if any are applicable, of any licensee or registrant who is called to active duty as a member of the United States Armed Forces or the California National Guard if certain requirements are met. Existing law, except as specified, prohibits a licensee or registrant from engaging in any activities requiring a license while a waiver is in effect. This bill would define the phrase “called to active duty” to include active duty in the United States Armed Forces and on duty in the California National Guard, as specified. This bill would also make nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.

SB 1342 - Patricia Carmody Bates
Aging multidisciplinary personnel teams.
09/13/2022 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 3 p.m.
SB 1342, Bates. Aging multidisciplinary personnel teams. Existing law authorizes area agencies on aging and other county agencies that provide services to older adults through an established multidisciplinary team to provide information regarding older adult clients only to other county agencies with staff designated as members of a multidisciplinary team that are, or may be, providing services to the same individuals for purposes of identifying and coordinating the treatment of individuals served by more than one agency. This bill would specifically authorize an area agency on aging or a county, or both, to establish an aging multidisciplinary personnel team, as defined, with the goal of facilitating the expedited identification, assessment, and linkage of older adults to services and to allow provider agencies and members of the personnel team to share confidential information, as specified, for the purpose of coordinating services. Under the bill, any discussion relative to the disclosure or exchange of the information or writings during a team meeting would be confidential and testimony concerning that discussion would not be admissible in any criminal, civil, or juvenile court proceeding. The bill would require the sharing of information permitted under these provisions to be governed by protocols developed by each area agency on aging or county, as specified, and would require each area agency on aging or county to provide a copy of its protocols to the California Department of Aging. The bill would require the protocols to include a requirement that, unless otherwise permitted by law, an area agency on aging or county obtain the affirmative consent of an individual or their representative before the individual’s information is shared and a requirement to notify an individual, among other things, that they may opt out of sharing information at any time.This bill would authorize the aging multidisciplinary personnel team to designate qualified persons to be members of the team for a particular case and would require every member who receives information or records regarding adults and families in their capacity as a member of the team to be under the same privacy and confidentiality obligations and subject to the same confidentiality penalties as the person disclosing or providing the information or records. The bill would also require the information or records to be maintained in a manner that ensures the maximum protection of privacy and confidentiality rights.Existing constitutional provisions require that a statute that limits the right of access to the meetings of public bodies or the writings of public officials and agencies be adopted with findings demonstrating the interest protected by the limitation and the need for protecting that interest.This bill would make legislative findings to that effect.The California Constitution provides for the Right to Truth-In-Evidence, which requires a 2/3 vote of each house of the Legislature to exclude any relevant evidence from any criminal proceeding or any trial or hearing of a juvenile for a criminal offense, as specified. Because this bill would exclude from a criminal or juvenile court proceeding any discussion relative to the disclosure or exchange of information or writings during an aging multidisciplinary personnel team meeting, which would otherwise be admissible, it requires a 2/3 vote of each house of the Legislature.

Law enforcement: training.
10/04/2021 - In Senate. Consideration of Governor's veto pending.
SB 494, Dodd. Law enforcement: training. Existing law establishes the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training. Existing law requires the commission to develop guidelines and implement courses of instruction regarding racial profiling, domestic violence, hate crimes, vehicle pursuits, and human trafficking, among others. Existing law establishes the Robert Presley Institute of Criminal Investigation which provides training courses for criminal investigators, including core instruction on matters common to all investigative activities and specialty courses in various investigative specialties.This bill would require the commission, by January 1, 2023, to implement a course of instruction for the regular and periodic training of law enforcement officers in the use of advanced interpersonal communication skills. The bill would require the course to be incorporated into the course or courses of basic training for law enforcement officers. The bill would also require, by January 1, 2023, a course for criminal law enforcement investigators and for officers training to become detectives in science-based interviewing and would require this training to be included within the core course required by the Robert Presley Institute of Criminal Investigation. The bill would require the commission to develop the specified courses, training standards, learning and performance objectives, and guidelines in consultation with individuals or groups with expertise in the fields of interpersonal communication and science-based interviewing. The bill would also require law enforcement agencies to adopt and promulgate specific policies and require regular and periodic training on advanced interpersonal communication training and science-based interviewing. By requiring the law enforcement agencies to implement additional policies and training, this bill imposes as state-mandated local program.The bill would include a definition of advanced interpersonal communication skills and science-based interviewing.The bill would include legislative findings and declarations, and would make a related statement of legislative intent.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state.

SB 504 - Josh Becker
Elections: voter registration.
01/06/2022 - Notice of intention to remove from inactive file given by Assembly Member Mayes.
SB 504, as amended, Becker. Elections: voter registration. (1) Existing law authorizes an individual who is eligible to register to vote to complete and deliver to a county elections official a conditional voter registration application that is deemed effective after the elections official determines the individual’s eligibility to vote and validates the information on the application. Existing law authorizes a voter who has conditionally registered to cast a provisional or nonprovisional ballot on the day of the election, as specified. Existing law authorizes military and overseas voters, as defined, to register for, and to vote a vote by mail ballot in, any election within the state or within the precinct in which the voter last resided within the territorial limits of the United States, as specified. Existing law requires a county elections official to permit a military or overseas voter and a voter with a disability to vote using a certified remote accessible vote by mail system, except as specified.This bill would require a county elections official to make conditional voter registration available to military and overseas voters and voters with disabilities via a certified remote accessible vote by mail system.(2) Existing law requires the clerk of the superior court of each county to periodically furnish the Secretary of State and the county elections official with certain information regarding persons who have been committed to state prison for a felony conviction. Existing law requires the Secretary of State or the county elections official to cancel the affidavit of voter registration of persons who are currently imprisoned for the conviction of a felony.This bill would repeal those provisions and instead require the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, on a weekly basis, to provide the Secretary of State with specified identifying information for persons imprisoned for the conviction of a felony and persons on parole or otherwise released from that imprisonment. The bill would require the Secretary of State to compare the identifying information received from the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation with the statewide voter registration database developed in compliance with the requirements of the federal Help America Vote Act of 2002, and to provide county elections officials with information regarding any matching registration records. The bill would require county elections officials to cancel the affidavits of voter registration of persons who are imprisoned and to notify persons who have been released from imprisonment that their voting rights are restored, that they may register to vote, and of the procedures for registering to vote. The bill would require the Secretary of State to prepare a form for county elections officials to provide this notice. The bill would immunize counties and county elections officials from liability based on actions taken in accordance with this bill based on erroneous information received from the Secretary of State or the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The bill would create a presumption that a person who is ineligible to vote but receives a notice that their voting rights have been restored under these provisions, and then becomes registered or preregistered to vote and votes or attempts to vote in a subsequent election, is not guilty of fraudulently voting or attempting to vote, except as specified.(3) By increasing the duties of local officials on matters relating to voter registration, the 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

Public postsecondary education: support services for foster youth: Cooperating Agencies Foster Youth Educational Support Program.
09/17/2021 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 1:30 p.m.
SB 512, Min. Public postsecondary education: support services for foster youth: Cooperating Agencies Foster Youth Educational Support Program. (1) Existing law establishes the California State University, the California Community Colleges, and the University of California as the 3 segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law requires the California State University and each community college district, and requests the University of California, with respect to each campus in their respective jurisdictions that administers a priority enrollment system, to grant priority in that system to certain foster youth or former foster youth whose dependency was established or continued by the court on or after the youth’s 16th birthday and to certain homeless youth and former homeless youth.This bill would extend this requirement and request for enrollment priority for certain foster youth or former foster youth to those whose dependency was established or continued by a court of competent jurisdiction, including a tribal court, on or after the youth’s 13th birthday. The bill would authorize a representative of a tribe or tribal organization to verify the homeless status of an American Indian student who is a homeless youth or former homeless youth, as specified. To the extent that the bill would impose duties on community college districts, it would constitute a state-mandated local program.(2) Existing law, the Cooperating Agencies Foster Youth Educational Support Program, authorizes the Office of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges to enter into agreements with up to 20 community college districts to provide additional funds for services in support of postsecondary education for foster youth. Existing law provides that these services include, when appropriate, but are not necessarily limited to, outreach and recruitment, consultation and eligibility verification, consultation and referrals for students deemed ineligible, service coordination, counseling, book and supply grants, tutoring, independent living and financial literacy skills support, frequent in-person contact, career guidance, transfer counseling, childcare and transportation assistance, and referrals to health services, mental health services, housing assistance, and other related services.This bill would authorize the program to provide all of these services, and direct financial support, to enrolled students who meet all eligibility requirements but whose courses have not yet commenced, and who have completed required matriculation activities as described, if those services are deemed necessary to enable the student to be successful upon the commencement of the academic term.(3) Existing law requires a student participant in the Cooperating Agencies Foster Youth Educational Support Program to be a current or former foster youth in California whose dependency was established or continued by the court on or after the youth’s 16th birthday.This bill would instead require a student participant in the program to be a current or former foster youth in California whose dependency was established or continued by a court of competent jurisdiction, including a tribal court, on or after the youth’s 13th birthday. (4) Existing law requires the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, in consultation with the State Department of Social Services, to adopt regulations for the program and to be responsible for the administration of funds for the program.This bill would further require regulations adopted by the board of governors to ensure that program application and enrollment processes implemented by community college districts are streamlined, do not impose barriers to entry, and allow programs to exercise professional judgment to waive any income criteria specified in the regulations as a condition of eligibility, as specified.(5)This bill would incorporate additional changes to Sect

Employment policy: voluntary veterans’ preference.
10/06/2021 - In Senate. Consideration of Governor's veto pending.
SB 665, Umberg. Employment policy: voluntary veterans’ preference. Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), it is an unlawful employment practice for an employer, unless based upon a bona fide occupational qualification or applicable security regulations established by the United States or the State of California, to refuse to hire or employ a person or to refuse to select a person for a training program leading to employment, or to bar or discharge a person from employment or a training program leading to employment, or to discriminate against a person in compensation or in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of the race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or military and veteran status of that person. FEHA provides that nothing in that act relating to discrimination on account of sex affects the right of an employer to use veteran status as a factor in employee selection or to give special consideration to Vietnam-era veterans.This bill would enact the Voluntary Veterans’ Preference Employment Policy Act to authorize a private employer to establish and maintain a written veterans’ preference employment policy, to be applied uniformly to hiring decisions, to give a voluntary preference for hiring a veteran over another qualified applicant. The bill would require a private employer with a veterans’ preference employment policy to annually report to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing the number of veterans hired under the preference policy and any demographic information about those veterans that the employer obtained in response to the department’s reporting requirements. Under the bill, failure to submit that report would render any preference granted by the employer ineligible for the protections provided by this bill. The bill would require the department to report that information, in addition to the number of discrimination claims received based on an employer’s veterans’ preference employment policy, to specified legislative policy committees by July 1, 2025, and July 1, 2027. The bill would provide that the granting of a veterans’ preference pursuant to the bill, in and of itself, shall be deemed not to violate any local or state equal employment opportunity law or regulation, including, but not limited to, the antidiscrimination provisions of FEHA. The bill would revise the existing veteran status provision in FEHA to remove references to discrimination on account of sex and to Vietnam-era veterans, and would, instead, provide that nothing in that act relating to discrimination affects the right of an employer to use veteran status as a factor in hiring decisions if the employer maintains a veterans’ preference employment policy established in accordance with the Voluntary Veterans’ Preference Employment Policy Act. The bill would prohibit a veterans’ preference employment policy from being established or applied for the purpose of discriminating against an employment applicant on the basis of a protected classification, as specified. The bill would repeal these provisions on January 1, 2028.

SB 667 - Richard Dale Roth
Property taxation: disabled veterans’ exemption: filing of claims.
09/17/2021 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 1:30 p.m.
SB 667, Roth. Property taxation: disabled veterans’ exemption: filing of claims. Existing property tax law, pursuant to the authorization of the California Constitution, provides a disabled veterans’ property tax exemption for the principal place of residence of a veteran, the veteran’s spouse, or the veteran and veteran’s spouse jointly, and the unmarried surviving spouse of a veteran, as provided, if the veteran is blind in both eyes, has lost the use of 2 or more limbs, or is totally disabled as a result of injury or disease incurred in military service, or if the veteran has, as a result of a service-connected injury or disease, died while on active duty in military service. Existing property tax law requires any person claiming the disabled veterans’ property tax exemption to file a claim, which is required to be filed under penalty of perjury, with the assessor giving any information required by the State Board of Equalization, as provided.This bill would authorize (1) the executor, administrator, or personal legal representative of the claimant’s estate or (2) the trustee of the deceased claimant’s trust assets to file a claim with the assessor in the manner described above. By expanding the duties of local government officials relating to claims for the disabled veterans’ property tax exemptions, and by expanding the crime of perjury, 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 with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.

SB 763, as introduced, Min. Sentencing: members of military: trauma. Existing law requires a court, if it concludes that a defendant convicted of a felony offense is or was a member of the United States military who may be suffering from sexual trauma, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, or mental health problems as a result of the defendant’s military service, to consider that circumstance as a factor in mitigation when imposing a sentence. Existing law allows a defendant who is currently serving a felony sentence and meets these criteria to petition for resentencing if those criteria were not considered at the time of sentencing and the person was sentenced prior to January 1, 2015.This bill would allow a defendant meeting these criteria to petition for recall of sentence and resentencing without regard to whether the defendant was sentenced prior to January 1, 2015.

09/23/2021 - Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 223, Statutes of 2021.
SB 779, Becker. California Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act: earn and learn programs. Existing law establishes the California Workforce Development Board for purposes of assisting the Governor in the development, oversight, and continuous improvement of California’s workforce investment system and the alignment of the education and workforce investment systems to the needs of the 21st century economy and workforce. Existing law requires, as part of the California Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, the board to, among other things, identify opportunities for “earn and learn” job training opportunities that meet the industry’s workforce demands and that are in high road, high-demand jobs. Under existing law, “earn and learn” programs include, but are not limited to, transitional and subsidized employment particularly for individuals with barriers to employment.Existing law also establishes the Breaking Barriers to Employment Initiative for purposes of providing supplemental funding and services to ensure the success of individuals either preparing to enter or already enrolled in workforce and education programs operating under the policy vision and state plan of the act. Existing law provides funding for the initiative upon appropriation by the Legislature and states that eligible activities for initiative and grant funds include, but are not limited to, earn and learn training. Existing law also establishes a prison to employment program to award grants for specified purposes, including to provide earn and learn opportunities for formerly incarcerated and other justice-involved individuals participating in the program.This bill would amend the list of “earn and learn” programs by specifying that an “earn and learn” program includes transitional jobs, as described in the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, and subsidized employment with an employer of record, which may include, but not be limited to, an employment social enterprise, as defined, or a worker cooperative, as defined, particularly for individuals with barriers to employment.

Community mental health services: data collection.
09/13/2022 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 3 p.m.
SB 929, Eggman. Community mental health services: data collection. Existing law requires the State Department of Health Care Services to collect and publish annually quantitative information concerning the operation of various provisions relating to community mental health services, including the number of persons admitted for evaluation and treatment for certain periods, transferred to mental health facilities, or for whom certain conservatorships are established, as specified. Existing law requires each local mental health director, and each facility providing services to persons under those provisions, to provide the department, upon its request, with any information, records, and reports that the department deems necessary for purposes of the data collection and publication.This bill would additionally require the department to collect data quarterly and publish, on or before May 1 of each year, a report including quantitative, deidentified information relating to, among other things, the number of persons in designated and approved facilities admitted or detained for 72-hour evaluation and treatment, clinical outcomes and services for certain individuals, waiting periods prior to receiving an evaluation or treatment services in a designated and approved facility, demographic data of those receiving care, the number of all county-contracted beds, and an assessment of the disproportionate use of detentions and conservatorships on various groups. The bill would specify that the information be from each county for some of those data.The bill would require the Judicial Council to provide the department, by October 1 of each year, with data from each superior court to complete the report, including, among other things, the number and outcomes of certification review hearings, petitions for writs of habeas corpus, and judicial review hearings. The bill would, beginning with the report due May 1, 2025, require the report to also include the progress that has been made on implementing recommendations from prior reports. The bill would require the department to make the report publicly available on the department’s internet website. The bill would require each county behavioral health director or other entity involved in implementing the provisions relating to detention, assessment, evaluation, or treatment for up to 72 hours to provide data as prescribed by the department. The bill would authorize the department to impose a plan of correction against a facility or county that fails to submit data timely or as required.The bill would authorize the department to implement these provisions through information notices or other similar written instructions. The bill would exempt contracts entered into by the department for purposes of these provisions from certain contract-related requirements.To the extent that the bill would increase the duties of county behavioral health directors, facilities of local entities, or any other local entities with regard to providing the department with new types of data, the 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.

SB 984, Archuleta. Military service: leave of absence: pay and benefits. Existing law specifies that employee members of reserve military units and the National Guard required to attend scheduled reserve drill periods or perform other inactive duty reserve obligations shall be granted military leave of absence without pay as provided by federal law, as specified. Existing law also, notwithstanding that or any other provision, authorizes employee members to elect to use vacation time or accumulated compensatory time off to attend scheduled reserve drill periods or perform other inactive duty reserve obligations.This bill would recast those provisions to instead require that employee members of reserve military units and the National Guard required to perform inactive duty obligations, other than inactive and active duty training drill periods, as specified, be granted military leave of absence without pay as provided by federal law. The bill would also authorize employee members that attend or perform inactive duty obligations, other than inactive and active duty training drill periods, as specified, to elect to use vacation time or accumulated compensatory time off to attend those other obligations.Existing law specifies that an employee who is granted a short-term military leave of absence for active military duty, but not for inactive duty, including scheduled reserve drill periods, and who for a period of not less than one year immediately before the effective date of active duty has had continuous state service that is not broken by a permanent separation, or who has had continuous state service immediately before the effective date of active duty not broken by a permanent separation and sufficient recognized military service to equal one year, shall be entitled to receive their salary or compensation for the first 30 calendar days of active duty served during the absence.This bill would also entitle an employee to receive that compensation for short-term military leave of absence for National Guard active duty and inactive duty training drill periods.

Property taxation: taxable value transfers: disclosure and deferment.
09/13/2022 - Enrolled and presented to the Governor at 3 p.m.
SB 989, Hertzberg. Property taxation: taxable value transfers: disclosure and deferment. The California Constitution generally limits ad valorem taxes on real property to 1% of the full cash value of that property, defined as the county assessor’s valuation of real property as shown on the 1975–76 tax bill and, thereafter, the appraised value of the property when purchased, newly constructed, or a change in ownership occurs after the 1975 assessment, subject to an annual inflation adjustment not to exceed 2%. Existing property tax law authorizes, pursuant to constitutional authorization, on and after April 1, 2021, any person who is over 55 years of age, any severely and permanently disabled person, or a victim of wildfire or natural disaster who resides in property that is eligible for the homeowner’s exemption or the disabled veteran’s exemption to transfer the taxable value of that property to a replacement dwelling that is purchased or newly constructed as a principal residence within 2 years of the sale of the original property, as provided.Existing property tax law provides for the payment of taxes on the secured roll in 2 installments, which are due and payable on November 1 and February 1, respectively. Under existing property tax law, unpaid property taxes become delinquent, and subject to a delinquent penalty of 10%, as provided. Existing property tax law, after the 2nd installment becomes delinquent, requires the tax collector to collect a cost of $10 for preparing the delinquent tax records and giving notice of delinquency and to prepare a delinquent roll, as provided. Under existing property tax law, the taxes, assessments, penalties, and costs on certain real property which have not been paid are declared to be in default at 12:01 a.m. on July 1. This bill would require, except as provided, payment of property taxes for a property to be deferred, without penalty or interest, if the property owner has claimed the property tax relief described above, but the county assessor has not completed its determination of the property’s eligibility for that relief, and the person requests deferment with the county assessor within one calendar year, but before January 1, 2024, of receiving the first tax bill for the property. The bill would defer those property taxes until the county assessor has reassessed the property and a corrected tax bill has been prepared and sent to the property owner or the county assessor has determined the property is not eligible for the property tax relief. The bill would set forth procedures for making payments following correction or determination of ineligibility.This bill would also require a disclosure to be printed on each tax bill for properties that have been purchased, newly constructed, or changed in ownership in the year preceding the tax bill. The bill would require the disclosure to include information regarding the property tax relief and deferment procedures described above.This bill would require counties with a population of over 4,000,000, as determined by the 2020 federal census, to comply with the bill’s requirements. The bill would authorize all other counties to comply with the bill’s requirements if the county’s board of supervisors, after consultation with the county assessor, county auditor, county treasurer, and county tax collector, adopts a resolution to implement the requirements.By imposing additional duties on local tax officials, the 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.This bill would dec
