	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 185, as amended, Committee on Budget.  Budget Act of
2009 .   Property tax revenues: Proposition 1A
receivables.  
   (1) Existing property tax law requires the county auditor, in each
fiscal year, to allocate property tax revenue among local
jurisdictions in accordance with specified formulas and procedures.
The California Constitution allows for a specified suspension of the
prohibition on the Legislature from modifying the manner of
apportioning ad valorem property tax revenues. Existing law requires
the auditor of each county to reduce the amount of ad valorem
property tax revenue apportionments to each local agency for the
2009-10 fiscal year by 8% of the total amount of ad valorem property
tax revenue apportioned to that local agency in the 2008-09 fiscal
year.  
   The Marks-Roos Local Bond Pooling Act of 1985 defines the term
"authority" and authorizes joint powers authorities to, among other
things, purchase, with the proceeds of bonds or its revenue, a local
agency's right to receive moneys in repayment of its revenue losses
(Proposition 1A receivables) resulting from this modification of ad
valorem property tax revenue allocations. Existing law authorizes a
local agency subject to this reduction to sell its Proposition 1A
receivables to the authority.  
   This bill would revise the definition of the term "authority," in
the case of an authority issuing bonds in which Proposition 1A
receivables are pledged to the payment of the bonds, to require it to
consist of not less than 250 local agencies.  
   The bill would require a county auditor to prepare, by September
15, 2009, a list of each taxing agency within the county and the
amount of the Proposition 1A receivables, to prepare a certified list
by October 30, 2009, and to make this information available, as
specified. The bill would also revise provisions regarding the sale
of bonds for which the indebtedness is serviced by Proposition 1A
receivables.  
   By imposing new duties upon county auditors, this bill would
impose a state-mandated local program  
   (2) Existing law specifies authorized investments for local
agencies.  
   This bill would additionally authorize a local agency to purchase,
with its revenue, Proposition 1A receivables sold pursuant to the
requirements that would imposed by this bill.  
   (3) Existing law allows the Director of Finance, upon the written
request by a local agency no later than October 15, 2009, to decrease
the amount by which ad valorem property taxes are required to be
reduced for the 2009-10 fiscal year, on the basis of extreme
hardship. Existing law also requires the state to fully reimburse
these revenue reductions in specified amounts. 
   This bill would instead allow this request to be made 30 days
after the issuance of bonds or December 1, 2009, whichever date is
earlier, and would authorize the Director of Finance to make this
decrease only to the extent that the agency did not receive bond
proceeds for the full amount of Proposition 1A receivables that it
offered for sale. The bill would also revise provisions regarding the
reimbursement of the revenue reductions.  
   (4) The bill would provide a court ruling that any portion of the
revenues that are subject to the ad valorem property tax reduction
may not be loaned to the state would not affect any remaining
revenues or the implementation of any other portion of this bill or
Chapter 14 of the Statutes of the 2009-10 Fourth Extraordinary
Session.  
   (5) 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 these
statutory provisions.  
   (6) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately
as an urgency statute.  
   This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to enact
statutory changes relating to the Budget Act of 2009. 
   Vote:  majority   2/3  . Appropriation:
no. Fiscal committee:  no   yes  .
State-mandated local program:  no   yes  .

Proposition 1A receivables.
   (b) Notwithstanding any other law, local agencies may sell
Proposition 1A receivables to the authority and enter into one or

establish and maintain the security of bonds issued by the authority
for the purpose of purchasing the Proposition 1A receivables and, if
applicable, the exclusion from gross income of interest on the bonds
for federal income tax purposes. Any transfer of some or all of a
Proposition 1A receivable by a local agency to the authority under
this article that the governing documents state is a sale shall be
treated as an absolute sale and transfer of the property so
transferred to the authority and not as a pledge or grant of a
security interest by the local agency to secure a borrowing. The
characterization of the transfer of any Proposition 1A receivable as
an absolute sale by the local agency shall not be negated or
adversely affected by any of the following:
   (1) The fact that only a portion of the Proposition 1A receivable
is transferred.

Proposition 1A receivable under this article that the governing
documents state is a sale, the local agency shall have no right,
title, or interest in or to the Proposition 1A receivable
transferred, and the Proposition 1A receivable so transferred shall
be the property of the authority and not of the local agency, and
shall be owned, received, held, and disbursed only by the authority
or any trustee or agent of the authority appointed by the authority.
Any sale of some or all of any Proposition 1A receivable shall
automatically be perfected without the need for physical delivery,
recordation, filing, or further act, and the provisions of Division 9
(commencing with Section 9101) of the Commercial Code and Sections
954.5 to 955.1, inclusive, of the Civil Code shall not apply to the
sale. None of the Proposition 1A receivables sold by the local agency
pursuant to this article shall be subject to garnishment, levy,
execution, attachment, or other process, writ, including, but not
limited to, a writ of mandate, or remedy in connection with the
assertion or enforcement of any debt, claim, settlement, or judgment
against the local agency. On or before the effective date of any sale
of a Proposition 1A receivable, the local agency shall notify the
Controller that the Proposition 1A receivable has been sold to the
authority and irrevocably instruct the payer that, as of the
effective date, payments on the Proposition 1A receivable so sold are
to be made directly to the authority or any trustee or agent
appointed by the authority.
   (d) The state hereby covenants, for the benefit of the holders of
any bonds issued by the authority pursuant to this article payable
from Proposition 1A receivables purchased by the authority, that it
will not take any action that would materially adversely affect the
interest of the holders of these bonds or otherwise impair the
security of these bonds, so long as any of these bonds remain
outstanding.

the certified list prepared pursuant to paragraph (2).

agency or another local agency, and enter into one or more sales
agreements with the purchaser of the Proposition 1A receivable on the
terms the local agency deems appropriate.
   (2) Except for Proposition 1A receivables created as a result of
reallocations pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) of Section

   (b) (1) A local agency may make no more than five sales of its
Proposition 1A receivables pursuant to this section.
   (2) A transfer of some or all of a Proposition 1A receivable by a
local agency to a purchaser of the receivable under this section is a
sale and shall be treated as an absolute sale and transfer of the
property so transferred and not as a pledge or grant of a security
interest by the local agency to secure a borrowing.
   (3) The characterization of the transfer of a Proposition 1A
receivable as an absolute sale by a local agency shall not be negated
or adversely affected by any of the following:
   (A) The fact that only a portion of the Proposition 1A receivable
is transferred.

documents state is a sale, the local agency shall have no right,
title, or interest in or to the Proposition 1A receivable so
transferred.

subdivision shall be the property of the purchaser and not of the
local agency, and shall be owned, received, held, and disbursed only
by the purchaser or any trustee or agent of the purchaser.
   (3) A sale of some or all of any Proposition 1A receivable shall
automatically be perfected without the need for physical delivery,
recordation, filing, or further act, and the provisions of Division 9
(commencing with Section 9101) of the Commercial Code and Sections
954.5 to 955.1, inclusive, of the Civil Code shall not apply to the
sale.
   (4) A Proposition 1A receivable sold by the local agency pursuant
to this chapter shall not be subject to garnishment, levy, execution,

writ of mandate, or remedy in connection with the assertion or
enforcement of any debt, claim, settlement, or judgment against the
local agency.
   (d) On or before the effective date of any sale of a Proposition
1A receivable, the local agency shall notify the Controller that the
Proposition 1A receivable has been sold to the purchaser and
irrevocably instruct the Controller that, as of the effective date,
payments on the Proposition 1A receivable so sold are to be made
directly to the purchaser or any trustee or agent appointed by the
purchaser.

(2) to the county auditor for deposit in the county's Educational
Revenue Augmentation Fund created pursuant to Article 3 (commencing
with Section 97) of Chapter 6 of Part 0.5 of Division 1 of the
Revenue and Taxation Code. During the 2005-06 fiscal year, a

the amount determined for that agency pursuant to subparagraph (I)
of paragraph (2) to the county auditor for deposit in the county's
Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund created pursuant to Article 3
(commencing with Section 97) of Chapter 6 of Part 0.5 of Division 1
of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
   (2) For the 2004-05 and 2005-06 fiscal years, on or before
November 15, the Director of Finance shall do all of the following:
   (A) Determine the net tax increment apportioned to each agency
pursuant to Section 33670, excluding any amounts apportioned to

pursuant to Section 33670, excluding any amounts apportioned to
affected taxing agencies pursuant to Section 33401, 33607.5, or
33676.
   (C) Determine a percentage factor by dividing one hundred
twenty-five million dollars ($125,000,000) by the amount determined
pursuant to subparagraph (B).
   (D) Determine an amount for each agency by multiplying the amount
determined pursuant to subparagraph (A) by the percentage factor

   (J) Notify each agency and each legislative body of the amount
determined pursuant to subparagraph (I).
   (K) Notify each county auditor of the amounts determined pursuant
to subparagraph (I) for each agency in his or her county.
   (3) The obligation of any agency to make the payments required

pledge of collateral securing, directly or indirectly, the payment of
the principal, or interest on any bonds of the agency including,
without limitation, bonds secured by a pledge of taxes allocated to
the agency pursuant to Section 33670.
   (b) (1) Notwithstanding Sections 33334.2, 33334.3, and 33334.6,
and any other provision of law, in order to make the full allocation
required by this section, an agency may borrow up to 50 percent of
the amount required to be allocated to the Low and Moderate Income
Housing Fund pursuant to Sections 33334.2, 33334.3, and 33334.6
during the 2004-05 fiscal year and, if applicable, the 2005-06 fiscal
year, unless executed contracts exist that would be impaired if the
agency reduced the amount allocated to the Low and Moderate Income
Housing Fund pursuant to the authority of this subdivision.
   (2) As a condition of borrowing pursuant to this subdivision, an
agency shall make a finding that there are insufficient other moneys
to meet the requirements of subdivision (a). Funds borrowed pursuant
to this subdivision shall be repaid in full within 10 years following
the date on which moneys are remitted to the county auditor for
deposit in the county's Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund
pursuant to subdivision (a).
   (c) In order to make the allocation required by this section, an
agency may use any funds that are legally available and not legally
obligated for other uses, including, but not limited to, reserve
funds, proceeds of land sales, proceeds of bonds or other
indebtedness, lease revenues, interest, and other earned income. No
moneys held in a low- and moderate-income fund as of July 1 of the
applicable fiscal year may be used for this purpose.
   (d) The legislative body shall by March 1 report to the county
auditor as to how the agency intends to fund the allocation required
by this section, or that the legislative body intends to remit the
amount in lieu of the agency pursuant to Section 33681.14.
   (e) The allocation obligations imposed by this section, including
amounts owed, if any, created under this section, are hereby declared
to be an indebtedness of the redevelopment project to which they
relate, payable from taxes allocated to the agency pursuant to
Section 33670, and shall constitute an indebtedness of the agency
with respect to the redevelopment project until paid in full.
   (f) It is the intent of the Legislature, in enacting this section,
that these allocations directly or indirectly assist in the
financing or refinancing, in whole or in part, of the community's
redevelopment project pursuant to Section 16 of Article XVI of the
California Constitution.
   (g) In making the determinations required by subdivision (a), the
Director of Finance shall use those amounts reported as the "Tax
Increment Retained by Agency" for all agencies and for each agency in
the most recent published edition of the Controller's Community
Redevelopment Agencies Annual Report made pursuant to Section 12463.3
of the Government Code.
   (h) If revised reports have been accepted by the Controller on or
before September 1, 2005, the Director of Finance shall use
appropriate data that has been certified by the Controller for the
purpose of making the determinations required by subdivision (a).
   (i) (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a  city,
city and county, or  county redevelopment agency may enter into
a loan agreement with the legislative body to have the agency remit
to the county's Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund for each of the
2004-05 and 2005-06 fiscal years an amount greater than that
determined pursuant to subparagraph (I) of paragraph (2) of
subdivision (a) or, for the 2009-10 fiscal year, to have the agency
remit to the county auditor on the  city's, city and county's, or
 county's behalf all or a portion of the reduction amount
determined for the county under Section 100.06 of the Revenue and
Taxation Code, if, in either instance, all of the following
conditions are met:
   (A) The agency does not exercise its authority under subdivision
(b) to borrow from its Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund to
finance its payments to the county's Educational Revenue Augmentation
Fund or to the county auditor.
   (B) The agency does not have any outstanding loans from its Low
and Moderate Income Housing Fund that were made under 
subdivision (b) of Section 33981.5,  subdivision (b) of
Section 33681.7, or subdivision (b) of Section 33681.9.
   (C) The loan agreement requires the  city, city and county, or
 county to repay any excess remitted amounts or amounts paid to
the  city, city and county, or  county auditor on the
county's behalf in the 2009-10 fiscal year, including interest, to
the agency within three fiscal years subsequent to the fiscal year in
which the loan is made.
   (D) The agency making the loan does not participate in pooled
borrowing under Section 33681.15.
   (2) A loan agreement described in paragraph (1) shall be
transmitted to the county auditor not later than December 1 of the
fiscal year in which the loan is made. Any amount remitted by the
agency to the county Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund for the
2004-05 or 2005-06 fiscal year in excess of the amount determined
pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) shall be credited to the
amount that would otherwise be subtracted by the county auditor
pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 97.71 of the Revenue and
Taxation Code for, as applicable, the 2004-05 and 2005-06 fiscal
years.
   (3) Notwithstanding subparagraph (C) of paragraph (1), a county
redevelopment agency and a legislative body that have entered into a
loan agreement for the 2004-05 or 2005-06 fiscal year under paragraph
(1) may, by mutual consent, adopt either or both of the following
modifications to that agreement:
   (A) The repayment period may be extended, but the full repayment
shall be completed no later than June 30, 2021.
   (B) The repayment obligation may be offset by the amount of any
expenditures by the county for capital improvements or deferred
maintenance that substantially benefit any or all of the
redevelopment project areas of the redevelopment agency if the agency
approves the expenditure and the agency adopts a finding that the
expenditure furthers the goals and objectives of the agency's
redevelopment plan or plans.
   SEC. 8.    Section 100.06 of the   Revenue
and Taxation Code  is amended to read: 
   100.06.  (a) In accordance with the suspension under Section
100.05 of the Revenue and Taxation Code of subparagraph (A) of
paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 25.5 of Article XIII of
the California Constitution, the county auditor shall, for the
2009-10 fiscal year, do both of the following:
   (1) (A) Except as otherwise provided in subparagraph (B) and
subdivision (b), reduce the total amount of ad valorem property tax
revenue otherwise required to be apportioned to a city, county, city
and county, or a special district by 8 percent of the total amount of
ad valorem property tax revenue apportioned to that local agency for
the 2008-09 fiscal year.
   (B) For purposes of calculating the amount of an 8-percent
reduction required by subparagraph (A), any amount required to be
paid or allocated to a city, county, or city and county under Section
97.68 or 97.70 for the 2008-09 fiscal year is included in
determining the total amount of property tax revenue apportioned to
that local agency for that fiscal year. A reduction made pursuant to
this paragraph shall not, however, be made from any amount that is to
be apportioned to a city, county, or city and county as a result of
Section 97.68.
   (2) Transfer to the Supplemental Revenue Augmentation Fund, hereby
established in the county treasury for administration by the county
office of education as provided in subdivision (c), an amount equal
in the aggregate to that portion of the total amount of reductions
required by paragraph (1). The aggregate amount of transfers required
by this paragraph shall be made in two equal shares, with the first
share being transferred  no later than   on
 January 15, 2010, and the second share being transferred
 after that date but no later than   on 
May  1,   3,  2010.
   (b) (1) Upon written request by a local agency that is received no
later than  October 15, 2009   30 days after
the issuance on bonds under Section 6590 of the Government Code or
December 1, 2009, whichever date is earlier  , the Director of
Finance may, on the basis of extreme hardship  and only to the
extent that the agency did not receive bond proceeds for the full
amount of   Proposition 1A receivables that it offered for
sale under Section 6588.6  , decrease the reduction amount that
would otherwise be applied to that local agency under subdivision
(a). In evaluating a written request for a decrease, the Director of
Finance may consider factors including, but not limited to, all of
the following:
   (A) Whether the requesting local agency is the subject of a
current bankruptcy proceeding, or whether incurring the full
reduction amount otherwise required by subdivision (a) would likely
cause the local agency to seek bankruptcy protection.
   (B) Whether the requesting local agency has any financial
reserves, and whether incurring the full reduction amount otherwise
required by subdivision (a) would impair the ability of the local
agency to provide a basic level of core public services.
   (2) (A) If the Director of Finance approves a request made
pursuant to paragraph (1), he or she shall, by  November 15,
2009   December 10, 2009  , certify to the auditor
of the county in which the requesting local agency is located, the
amount of a decrease in the reduction otherwise to be incurred by the
requesting local agency pursuant to subdivision (a). The amount of
that decrease shall be applied in proportionate shares to increase
the reduction amounts under subdivision (a) of all other local
agencies in the county, so that there is no  reduction
  decrease  in the aggregate amount of reductions
to be incurred by local agencies located in the county. The Director
of Finance may determine that the reduction amount that would
otherwise be incurred by the requesting local agency under
subdivision (a) should be decreased to zero. The amount of any
certified decrease, in whole or in part, of a reduction amount shall
be based upon the director's evaluation of the factors considered
with respect to the requesting local agency under paragraph (1) and
the extent to which those factors indicate that the requesting local
agency should be given relief.
   (B) The Director of Finance may not grant decreases to local
agencies within a single county that, in the aggregate, total more
than 10 percent of the combined total of the reduction amounts under
subdivision (a) for all local agencies in that county.
   (3) (A) Two or more local agencies in a county may agree to
reallocate exclusively among themselves all or part of their
reduction amounts otherwise required by  subdivision (a)
 this section  . Any local agencies entering into
an agreement to so reallocate their reduction amounts shall, no later
than November  15   2  , 2009, notify the
county auditor of that agreement and the reallocations specified in
that agreement  , except that these agreements may be entered
into after November 2, 2009, with respect to any Proposition 1A
receivable created pursuant to paragraph (2)  . The auditor
shall thereafter implement subdivision (a) with respect to those
local agencies in accordance with that agreement.
   (B) A  county  redevelopment agency that will, on
behalf of the  city, city and county, or  county under
Section 33681.12 of the Health and Safety Code, pay all or a portion
of a reduction amount under subdivision (a) shall so notify the
county auditor by  December 1   November 2 
, 2009. The auditor shall thereafter decrease the  city's, city
and county's, or  county's reduction amount by the amount of the
payment from the  city, city and county, or  county
redevelopment agency to the extent that the payment is received prior
to a date by which a transfer is required by paragraph (2) of
subdivision (a).
   (c) (1) Except for those moneys subject to paragraph (3), the
moneys in the Supplemental Revenue Augmentation Fund shall be
transferred by the county office of education to the Controller, in
amounts and for those purposes as directed by the Director of
Finance, exclusively to reimburse the state for the costs of
providing health care, trial court, correctional, or other
state-funded services and costs, until those moneys are exhausted.
Moneys in a Supplemental Revenue Augmentation Fund shall be
transferred to reimburse only those costs incurred, and the costs of
services provided, in the county in which those moneys are collected.

   (2) (A) Entities of state government, including the Administrative
Office of the Courts, that are responsible for the functions funded
with moneys transferred pursuant to paragraph (1) shall keep records,
as required by the Department of Finance, of expenditures made in
the county pursuant to that paragraph, and shall provide to the
Department of Finance any information required by the department with
respect to those expenditures.
   (B) Moneys transferred pursuant to paragraph (1) for the funding
of trial courts shall reimburse transfers from the state General Fund
to the Trial Court Trust Fund.
   (C) The county office of education shall make a transfer under
paragraph (1) within five days of that transfer being directed by the
Department of Finance, and shall provide to the Controller, with
that transfer, information specifying the purpose of that transfer.
   (D) Moneys in the Supplemental Revenue Augmentation Fund that are
not transferred in a fiscal year and are not subject to paragraph (3)
shall be retained in the fund for transfer pursuant to paragraph (1)
in a subsequent fiscal year.
   (3) Any moneys in the Supplemental Revenue Augmentation Fund that
are determined by the Director of Finance not to be necessary to fund
the provision of state-funded services and costs shall be
transferred to the county's Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund, no
later than June 1, 2010. Funds transferred to the county's
Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund pursuant to this paragraph
shall not be apportioned to community college districts. This
paragraph shall not be construed to increase any allocations of
excess, additional, or remaining funds that would otherwise have been
allocated to cities, counties, cities and counties, or special
districts pursuant to clause (i) of subparagraph (B) of paragraph (4)
of subdivision (d) of Section 97.2 of, clause (i) of subparagraph
(B) of paragraph (4) of subdivision (d) of Section 97.3 of, or
Article 4 (commencing with Section 98) of Chapter 6 of Part 0.5 of
Division 1 of, the Revenue and Taxation Code had this section not
been enacted.
   (4) (A) Each county auditor shall report to the Department of
Finance the amount of property tax revenue that was transferred from
each local agency located in the county to the county's Supplemental
Revenue Augmentation Fund. The county auditor first shall report this
information on or before January 15, 2010, and then on or before May
15, 2010, and shall provide a copy of each report to each local
agency located in the county.
   (B) When transferring the amounts required by paragraph (1), each
county auditor shall also provide the Department of Finance, the
Legislative Analyst's Office, and each local agency located in the
county with information detailing how each local agency's reduction
amount under subdivision (a) was calculated. This information shall
first be reported on or before January 15, 2010, and then on or
before May 15, 2010.
   (d) For the 2010-11 fiscal year and each fiscal year thereafter,
the county auditor shall  apply paragraph (1) of subdivision
(a) of Section 96.1, or any successor to that provision, 
 apportion ad valorem property tax to cities, counties,
                                     cities and counties, and special
districts  without regard to the changes in property tax
revenue apportionments required by this section.
   (e) (1) In accordance with Section 25.5 of Article XIII of the
California Constitution, the state shall  , no later than
June 30, 2013,  fully reimburse the revenue reductions
incurred pursuant to subdivision (a)  no earlier than June 6,
2013, except as allowed by paragraph (2), but not later than June 13,
2013, as provided in the terms and conditions of the sale of the
bonds authorized by Section 6591 of the Government Code,  in the
following amounts determined by the Controller:
   (A) (i) The amount due to the authority that issued bonds pursuant
to Section 6590 of the Government Code to purchase Proposition 1A
receivables pursuant to Section 6588.6 of the Government Code shall
be paid  a   nd calculated  as follows:
   (I) The principal amount of the bonds on the date of the maturity
or upon call.
   (II) Periodic interest  on the bonds  as applicable 
, except that if the bonds sold   pursuant to Section 6590
of the Government Code bear interest on periodic interest payment
dates pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 6591 of the Government
Code, the state shall pay periodic interest payments on or before
each interest payment date  .
   (III) The accrued interest on the bonds upon call, on the date of
maturity, or a later date, if repayment does not occur prior to the
date of maturity. 
   (ii) The repayment date shall be certified by the Treasurer and
the Director of Finance at the time of approval of the terms of the
bonds pursuant to paragraph (4) of subdivision (x) of Section 6588 of
the Government Code and shall be specified in the documents pursuant
to which the bonds are issued. Upon certification of that repayment
date, as provided in this subdivision, the obligation of the state to
make payment on that date shall be deemed an obligation imposed by
law.  
   (ii) 
    (iii)  In the event the state fully repays the reduction
amounts in accordance with paragraph (2) prior to the maturity date
of the bonds, the payment amount shall be equal to the amount
required, as shown in a report of an independent certified public
accountant provided by the authority, to legally defease the bonds.
   (B) The amount due to each local agency that does not sell all of
its Proposition 1A receivables to an authority described in
subparagraph (A)  or to purchasers of Proposition 1A receivables
pursuant to Section 53610 of the Government Code  shall be the
sum of both of the following:
   (i) The unpaid principal amount of the revenue reduction incurred
by each local agency pursuant to subdivision (a), less the amount of
the revenue reduction that is attributable to Proposition 1A
receivables that are sold to an authority described in subparagraph
(A).
   (ii) Interest on the amount described in clause (i)  from the
time of each revenue reduction pursuant to paragraph (2) of

higher than the rate of interest earned by the Pooled Money
Investment Account but no greater than 6 percent.
   (2) The state may repay the revenue reductions incurred pursuant
to subdivision (a) before June  30,   6, 
2013, upon the order of the Director of Finance issued no earlier
than 30 days after delivery of a written notice of the intent to do
so to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
   (3) The payment of the amounts specified in this subdivision shall
take priority over all other obligations of the state  in any
fiscal year in which those payments are due  , excepting
payments to schools under Article XVI of the California Constitution
and debt service on general obligation bonds  for the 2012-13
fiscal year  . The Controller shall take all prudent means
within his or her legal discretion to assure that sufficient sums are
available to pay these amounts and all other obligations of higher
priority.
   (4) Notwithstanding Section 13340 of the Government Code, there is
hereby continuously appropriated to the Controller from the General
Fund, without regard to fiscal year, those amounts sufficient to pay
the amounts specified in this subdivision.
   (f) (1) Notwithstanding any other law, if by June 30, 2013, the
state has not fully reimbursed each local agency for its revenue
reduction incurred pursuant subdivision (a) in the amounts as
required by subdivision (e), the issuer of any bonds issued pursuant
to subdivision (x) of Section 6588 of the Government Code, or any
local agency that did not participate in the sale of Proposition 1A
receivables pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (x) of Section
6588 of the Government Code, may seek a writ of mandamus to compel
the Controller to fully pay the amounts the state is obligated to pay
under subdivision (e)  and Section 25.5 of Article XIII of the
California Constitution  . A petition seeking a writ of mandamus
pursuant to this subdivision, and any appellate proceedings arising
from that action, shall have priority and preference in setting and
review in furtherance of the repayment deadline mandated by Section
25.5 of Article XIII of the California Constitution. A petition for a
writ of mandamus authorized by this subdivision may also be filed in
the California Supreme Court pursuant to that court's original
jurisdiction described in Section 10 of Article VI of the California
Constitution.
   (2) In authorizing an original mandamus petition to the California
Supreme Court pursuant to this paragraph, the Legislature finds and
declares all of the following:
   (A) The Legislature is expressly required by Section 25.5 of
Article XIII of the California Constitution to enact a statute
mandating the full and timely repayment, as provided by subdivision
(e), of any revenue reduction incurred by a local agency pursuant to
subdivision (a) and all accrued interest thereon.
   (B) Full and timely repayment of any revenue reduction incurred by
a local agency pursuant to subdivision (a), with interest, is
critical to every local agency from which those funds were diverted.
   (C) The Legislature further finds and declares that conclusively
determining, no later than the deadline mandated under Section 25.5
of Article XIII of the California Constitution, that the state's
obligation under subdivision (e) to fully repay any revenue reduction
incurred by a local agency pursuant to subdivision (a) and all
accrued interest thereon is a matter of vital and urgent public
importance.
   SEC. 9.    If a court rules that any portion of the
revenues identified in Section 100.06 of the Revenue and Taxation
Code may not be loaned to the state, that ruling shall not affect any
of the following:  
   (a) Any remaining revenues.  
   (b) The implementation of this act or Chapter 14 of the Statutes
of the 2009-10 Fourth Extraordinary Session. 
   SEC. 10.    If the Commission on State Mandates
determines that this act contains costs mandated by the state,
reimbursement to local agencies and school districts for those costs
shall be made pursuant to Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of
Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code. 
   SEC. 11.    This act is an urgency statute necessary
for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, or safety
within the meaning of Article IV of the Constitution and shall go
into immediate effect. The facts constituting the necessity are:
 
   In order to address the current, severe state fiscal hardships, it
is necessary that this act go into effect immediately. 

  SECTION 1.    It is the intent of the Legislature
to enact statutory changes relating to the Budget Act of 2009.
