	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 2064, as amended, Huber. State and local government: salary
disclosure.
   Under existing law, local governments are authorized to provide
for the compensation of local elected and appointed officials, as
specified.
   The California Constitution authorizes the California Citizens
Compensation Committee to establish the salaries for state officers,
including constitutional officers and members of the Legislature.
   This bill would require each general law or charter city, county,
city and county, special district, school district, and joint powers
agency to post on its official Internet Web site, if it maintains
one, and annually update, annual salary information pertaining to
specified persons, including, among others, each elected or appointed
official of that entity, thus imposing a state-mandated local
program. The bill would provide that this provision not become
operative if a specified condition occurs. 
   This bill would require each house of the Legislature to post on
its official Internet Web site, and annually update, the annual
salary for Assembly Members, Senators, and employees of the
Legislature. 
   This bill would require each constitutional officer to post on his
or her official Internet Web site, and update on an annual basis,
the annual salary for that constitutional officer, any appointed or
exempt deputies, and any appointed or exempt employees of that
constitutional officer. 
   This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to display
and regularly update, on its official Internet Web site, the annual
salary of its members, officers, and employees, 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 these
statutory provisions.
    This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately
as an urgency statute. 
   Vote:  majority   2/3  . Appropriation:
no. Fiscal committee: yes. State-mandated local program: yes.

and access to, government salary information, it is necessary for
this bill to take effect at the earliest possible time.
