	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 1023, Wagner. Maintenance of the codes.
   Existing law directs the Legislative Counsel to advise the
Legislature from time to time as to legislation necessary to maintain
the codes.
   This bill would make nonsubstantive changes in various provisions
of law to effectuate the recommendations made by the Legislative
Counsel to the Legislature.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  Section 114 of the Business and Professions Code is
amended to read:
   114.  (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, any
licensee or registrant of any board, commission, or bureau within the
department 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, may, upon application, reinstate his
or her license or registration without examination or penalty,
provided that all of the following requirements are satisfied:
   (1) His or her license or registration was valid at the time he or
she entered the California National Guard or the United States Armed
Forces.
   (2) The application for reinstatement is made while serving in the
California National Guard or the United States Armed Forces, or not
later than one year from the date of discharge from active service or
return to inactive military status.
   (3) The application for reinstatement is accompanied by an
affidavit showing the date of entrance into the service, whether
still in the service, or date of discharge, and the renewal fee for
the current renewal period in which the application is filed is paid.

   (b) If application for reinstatement is filed more than one year
after discharge or return to inactive status, the applicant, in the
discretion of the licensing agency, may be required to pass an
examination.
   (c) If application for reinstatement is filed and the licensing
agency determines that the applicant has not actively engaged in the
practice of his or her profession while on active duty, then the
licensing agency may require the applicant to pass an examination.
   (d) Unless otherwise specifically provided in this code, any
licensee or registrant who, either part time or full time, practices
in this state the profession or vocation for which he or she is
licensed or registered shall be required to maintain his or her
license in good standing even though he or she is in military
service.
   For the purposes in this section, time spent by a licensee in
receiving treatment or hospitalization in any veterans' facility
during which he or she is prevented from practicing his or her
profession or vocation shall be excluded from said period of one
year.
  SEC. 2.  Section 809 of the Business and Professions Code is
amended to read:
   809.  (a) The Legislature hereby finds and declares the following:

   (1) In 1986, Congress enacted the Health Care Quality Improvement
Act of 1986 (42 U.S.C. Sec. 11101 et seq.), to encourage physicians
to engage in effective professional peer review, but giving each
state the opportunity to "opt-out" of some of the provisions of the
federal act.
   (2) Because of deficiencies in the federal act and the possible
adverse interpretations by the courts of the federal act, it is
preferable for California to "opt-out" of the federal act and design
its own peer review system.
   (3) Peer review, fairly conducted, is essential to preserving the
highest standards of medical practice.
   (4) Peer review that is not conducted fairly results in harm to
both patients and healing arts practitioners by limiting access to
care.
   (5) Peer review, fairly conducted, will aid the appropriate state
licensing boards in their responsibility to regulate and discipline
errant healing arts practitioners.
   (6) To protect the health and welfare of the people of California,
it is the policy of the State of California to exclude, through the
peer review mechanism as provided for by California law, those
healing arts practitioners who provide substandard care or who engage
in professional misconduct, regardless of the effect of that
exclusion on competition.
   (7) It is the intent of the Legislature that peer review of
professional health care services be done efficiently, on an ongoing
basis, and with an emphasis on early detection of potential quality
problems and resolutions through informal educational interventions.
   (8) Sections 809 to 809.8, inclusive, shall not affect the
respective responsibilities of the organized medical staff or the
governing body of an acute care hospital with respect to peer review
in the acute care hospital setting. It is the intent of the
Legislature that written provisions implementing Sections 809 to
809.8, inclusive, in the acute care hospital setting shall be
included in medical staff bylaws that shall be adopted by a vote of
the members of the organized medical staff and shall be subject to
governing body approval, which approval shall not be withheld
unreasonably.
   (9) (A) The Legislature thus finds and declares that the laws of
this state pertaining to the peer review of healing arts
practitioners shall apply in lieu of Section 11101 and following of
Title 42 of the United States Code, because the laws of this state
provide a more careful articulation of the protections for both those
undertaking peer review activity and those subject to review, and
better integrate public and private systems of peer review.
Therefore, California exercises its right to opt out of specified
provisions of the Health Care Quality Improvement Act of 1986
relating to professional review actions, pursuant to Section 11111(c)
(2)(B) of Title 42 of the United States Code. This election shall not
affect the availability of any immunity under California law.
   (B) The Legislature further declares that it is not the intent or
purpose of Sections 809 to 809.8, inclusive, to opt out of any
mandatory national data bank established pursuant to Section 11131
and following of Title 42 of the United States Code.
   (b) For the purpose of this section and Sections 809.1 to 809.8,
inclusive, "healing arts practitioner" or "licentiate" means a
physician and surgeon, podiatrist, clinical psychologist, marriage
and family therapist, clinical social worker, or dentist; and "peer
review body" means a peer review body as specified in paragraph (1)
of subdivision (a) of Section 805, and includes any designee of the
peer review body.
  SEC. 3.  Section 901 of the Business and Professions Code is
amended to read:
   901.  (a) For purposes of this section, the following provisions
apply:
   (1) "Board" means the applicable healing arts board, under this
division or an initiative act referred to in this division,
responsible for the licensure or regulation in this state of the
respective health care practitioners.
   (2) "Health care practitioner" means any person who engages in
acts that are subject to licensure or regulation under this division
or under any initiative act referred to in this division.
   (3) "Sponsored event" means an event, not to exceed 10 calendar
days, administered by either a sponsoring entity or a local
government, or both, through which health care is provided to the
public without compensation to the health care practitioner.
   (4) "Sponsoring entity" means a nonprofit organization organized
pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or a
community-based organization.
   (5) "Uninsured or underinsured person" means a person who does not
have health care coverage, including private coverage or coverage
through a program funded in whole or in part by a governmental
entity, or a person who has health care coverage, but the coverage is
not adequate to obtain those health care services offered by the
health care practitioner under this section.
   (b) A health care practitioner licensed or certified in good
standing in another state, district, or territory of the United
States who offers or provides health care services for which he or
she is licensed or certified is exempt from the requirement for
licensure if all of the following requirements are met:
   (1) Prior to providing those services, he or she does all of the
following:
   (A) Obtains authorization from the board to participate in the
sponsored event after submitting to the board a copy of his or her
valid license or certificate from each state in which he or she holds
licensure or certification and a photographic identification issued
by one of the states in which he or she holds licensure or
certification. The board shall notify the sponsoring entity, within
20 calendar days of receiving a request for authorization, whether
that request is approved or denied, provided that, if the board
receives a request for authorization less than 20 days prior to the
date of the sponsored event, the board shall make reasonable efforts
to notify the sponsoring entity whether that request is approved or
denied prior to the date of that sponsored event.
   (B) Satisfies the following requirements:
   (i) The health care practitioner has not committed any act or been
convicted of a crime constituting grounds for denial of licensure or
registration under Section 480 and is in good standing in each state
in which he or she holds licensure or certification.
   (ii) The health care practitioner has the appropriate education
and experience to participate in a sponsored event, as determined by
the board.
   (iii) The health care practitioner shall agree to comply with all
applicable practice requirements set forth in this division and the
regulations adopted pursuant to this division.
   (C) Submits to the board, on a form prescribed by the board, a
request for authorization to practice without a license, and pays a
fee, in an amount determined by the board by regulation, which shall
be available, upon appropriation, to cover the cost of developing the
authorization process and processing the request.
   (2) The services are provided under all of the following
circumstances:
   (A) To uninsured or underinsured persons.
   (B) On a short-term voluntary basis, not to exceed a
10-calendar-day period per sponsored event.
   (C) In association with a sponsoring entity that complies with
subdivision (d).
   (D) Without charge to the recipient or to a third party on behalf
of the recipient.
   (c) The board may deny a health care practitioner authorization to
practice without a license if the health care practitioner fails to
comply with this section or for any act that would be grounds for
denial of an application for licensure.
   (d) A sponsoring entity seeking to provide, or arrange for the
provision of, health care services under this section shall do both
of the following:
   (1) Register with each applicable board under this division for

the sponsored event by completing a registration form that shall

   (E) Any additional information required by the board.
   (2) Provide the information listed in paragraph (1) to the county
health department of the county in which the health care services
will be provided, along with any additional information that may be
required by that department.
   (e) The sponsoring entity shall notify the board and the county
health department described in paragraph (2) of subdivision (d) in
writing of any change to the information required under subdivision
(d) within 30 calendar days of the change.
   (f) Within 15 calendar days of the provision of health care
services pursuant to this section, the sponsoring entity shall file a
report with the board and the county health department of the county
in which the health care services were provided. This report shall
contain the date, place, type, and general description of the care
provided, along with a listing of the health care practitioners who
participated in providing that care.
   (g) The sponsoring entity shall maintain a list of health care
practitioners associated with the provision of health care services
under this section. The sponsoring entity shall maintain a copy of
each health care practitioner's current license or certification and
shall require each health care practitioner to attest in writing that
his or her license or certificate is not suspended or revoked
pursuant to disciplinary proceedings in any jurisdiction. The
sponsoring entity shall maintain these records for a period of at
least five years following the provision of health care services
under this section and shall, upon request, furnish those records to
the board or any county health department.
   (h) A contract of liability insurance issued, amended, or renewed
in this state on or after January 1, 2011, shall not exclude coverage
of a health care practitioner or a sponsoring entity that provides,
or arranges for the provision of, health care services under this
section, provided that the practitioner or entity complies with this
section.
   (i) Subdivision (b) shall not be construed to authorize a health
care practitioner to render care outside the scope of practice
authorized by his or her license or certificate or this division.
   (j) (1) The board may terminate authorization for a health care
practitioner to provide health care services pursuant to this section
for failure to comply with this section, any applicable practice
requirement set forth in this division, any regulations adopted

discipline if done by a licensee of that board.
   (2) The board shall provide both the sponsoring entity and the
health care practitioner with a written notice of termination
including the basis for that termination. The health care
practitioner may, within 30 days after the date of the receipt of

shall include any documentation the health care practitioner wishes

   (3) A health care practitioner whose authorization to provide

practicing health care in violation of the applicable provisions of
this division, and be subject to any applicable administrative,
civil, or criminal fines, penalties, and other sanctions provided in
this division.
   (k) The provisions of this section are severable. If any provision
of this section or its application is held invalid, that invalidity

effect without the invalid provision or application.

dollars ($44) to one hundred eighty-one dollars ($181) if the

statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2013, deletes or extends
that date.
  SEC. 18.  Section 8726.1 of the Business and Professions Code, as
added by Chapter 625 of the Statutes of 1983, is repealed.

  SEC. 20.  Section 19164 of the Business and Professions Code is
amended to read:
   19164.  The bureau may, by regulation, establish insulation
material standards governing the quality of all insulation material
sold or installed within this state, including those properties that
affect the safety and thermal performance of insulation material
during application and in the use intended. The standards shall
specify the initial performance of the insulation material and the
performance expected during the design life of the insulation
material. Until the bureau has adopted these regulations, the
regulations of the State Energy Resources Conservation and
Development Commission in effect on the effective date of this
section relating to those standards shall remain in full force and
effect. However, wherever those regulations specify that the
commission shall perform an act, the bureau instead shall perform the
act.
   Prior to establishing the standards and procedures required by
this chapter, the bureau shall conduct at least two public hearings,
and shall invite the State Energy Resources Conservation and
Development Commission, the State Fire Marshal, manufacturers,
distributors, and licensed installers of insulation materials, and
appropriate members of the public to participate in the hearings.
Immediately upon adoption of the standards and procedures, the bureau
shall provide a copy of the standards to the State Energy Resources
Conservation and Development Commission, and the Contractors' State
License Board. Within 30 days after receipt of the bureau's
standards, the Contractors' State License Board shall notify all
state licensed contractors who install insulation of the standards.
   Insulation standards adopted by the bureau, pursuant to this
section, and by the State Energy Resources Conservation and
Development Commission, pursuant to Section 25402 of the Public
Resources Code, which are building standards, as defined in Section
25488.5 of the Public Resources Code, shall be submitted to the
California Building Standards Commission for approval pursuant to,
and are governed by, the California Building Standards Law (Part 2.5
(commencing with Section 18901) of Division 13 of the Health and
Safety Code). The building standards adopted by the bureau and
published in the California Building Standards Code shall comply
with, and be enforced as provided in, this section.
  SEC. 21.  Section 19481.5 of the Business and Professions Code is
amended to read:
   19481.5.  (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no
license shall be issued to conduct a horse racing meeting upon a
track unless the track has been inspected by the board within 30 days
prior to the date of application for a license and the track has
been approved by the board as conforming to the racetrack safety
standards set forth in subdivision (a) of Section 19481.
   (b) The board shall adopt regulations to establish standards
governing the employee housing provided to backstretch personnel at
licensed racetracks. These regulations shall be commensurate with the
housing standards established in the Employee Housing Act (Part 1
(commencing with Section 17000) of Division 13 of the Health and
Safety Code), and shall consider the following:
   (1) The health and safety of the human and equine population and
the necessity for humans and horses to live in close proximity.
   (2) The housing needs of state or county facilities with live
racing meetings of no more than 43 days in duration that do not
operate as year-round training facilities. The board shall
specifically consider the different needs of these facilities
compared to permanent facilities or other state and county facilities
that function on a year-round basis, including state and county fair
facilities that operate as year-round training facilities where
horses are stabled and workers live.
   (3) Compliance of facilities with racing meetings of 19 days or
less, even if they operate as a year-round training facility, with
this subdivision shall be contingent on funding in the Budget Act of
2002 (Chapter 379 of the Statutes of 2002).
   (c) Commencing January 1, 2004, the board, with assistance from
the California Department of Housing and Community Development or a
local building department or other local entity designated by the
jurisdiction in which the racetrack is located, shall annually
inspect the living conditions of backstretch employee housing to
ensure compliance with the housing standards established by the
board, the findings or results of which shall be submitted to the
board. No license shall be issued to a racing association to conduct
a horse race meeting unless the board has inspected the housing
conditions that exist on the racetrack's backstretch and determined
the living conditions to be in compliance with the standards
established by the board in subdivision (b).

         (d) The board may assess a reasonable fee upon racing
associations to defray the costs associated with the inspections
provided for in subdivision (c).
  SEC. 22.  Section 19501 of the Business and Professions Code is
amended to read:
   19501.  (a) The Legislature finds and declares the following:
   (1) Professional jockeys are vital to the horse racing industry
and the work they perform is very dangerous.
   (2) The minimum wage that jockeys receive in a horse race is
established by the board as a minimum jockey riding fee. Jockeys may
earn additional compensation if the horse they are racing is a
winning mount, a second place mount, or a third place mount.
   (3) The minimum jockey riding fee has not kept up with inflation
or the cost of living. Since 1970, the state minimum wage has
increased at more than twice the rate that the average jockey riding
fee increased over the same period.
   (4) The riding fee should be increased at least as much on a
percentage basis as the state minimum wage, so that the average
full-time jockey can earn an income sufficient to provide for the
basic necessities of life.
   (b) (1) Effective January 1, 2010, the scale of minimum jockey
riding fees for losing mounts established by the board shall be
increased by ten dollars ($10) per mount from the rate in effect on
December 31, 2009. Effective January 1, 2012, the scale of minimum
jockey riding fees for losing mounts established by the board shall
be increased by ten dollars ($10) per mount from the rate in effect
on December 31, 2011, except the three lowest fees on the scale shall
be increased by five dollars ($5) per mount. Thereafter, the scale
of minimum jockey riding fees for losing mounts shall be increased
whenever the state minimum wage is increased by the percentage of
that increase.
   (2) Effective January 1, 2010, the minimum amount awarded to the
jockey who finishes second or third in a race shall be increased by
ten dollars ($10) over the amount required to be paid on December 31,
2009. Effective January 1, 2012, the minimum amount awarded to the
jockey who finishes second or third in a race shall be increased by
five dollars ($5) over the amount required to be paid on December 31,
2011. This subdivision shall apply to races in which the purse is
nine thousand nine hundred ninety-nine dollars ($9,999) or less.
   (c) No jockey shall be paid less than the minimum jockey riding
fees established pursuant to this section.
   (d) Nothing in this section prohibits the board from increasing
the minimum jockey riding fee above the minimum level required by
this section.
  SEC. 23.  Section 19532.2 of the Business and Professions Code is
amended to read:
   19532.2.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, commencing
July 1, 2010, if a racetrack located in the central zone is not
available for use by a thoroughbred association that was licensed by
the board to conduct a live race meet at that racetrack in 2009, the
board shall be authorized to allocate racing dates to that
association to be operated at a racetrack in the central zone or
southern zone for racing in 2010, or thereafter, in accordance with
the rules and regulations of the board, provided, however, that the
number of racing dates allocated pursuant to this section does not
exceed the number of racing dates that became unavailable at the
central zone racetrack.

wagering license is required.
   (C) The agreement requires the exchange wagering licensee to

   (3) Permanent state or county employees and nonprofit
organizations that have historically performed certain services at
county, state, or district fairs may continue to provide those
services.

equipment that accepts or processes any form of wagering at a
racetrack, satellite wagering facility, or exchange wagering licensee
licensed by the board. The preferential hiring rights established by

an amount equal to the greater of (A) one hundred thousand dollars

amount of exchange revenues collected by the exchange wagering
licensee in that calendar year. The distribution shall be made at the
direction of the board pursuant to Section 19612.9. This paragraph
shall become inoperative on January 1, 2021, and, as of that date, is
repealed, unless a later enacted statute that is enacted before

   (j) An exchange wagering licensee may cancel or allow to be
canceled any unmatched wagers, without cause, at any time.
   (k) The board may prescribe rules governing when an exchange
wagering licensee may cancel or void a matched wager or part of a

may take when all or part of a matched wager is canceled or voided.
The rules may include, but are not limited to, permitting the
exchange wagering licensee to place corrective wagers under
circumstances approved in the rules adopted by the board. Exchange
wagers placed on a market after the start of a race shall be lawful

wager is made.
   (l) The provisions of this section shall be deemed to be

site featuring California thoroughbred and fair racing, the
establishment and administration of players incentive programs for
those who wager on thoroughbred association and fair races, and
promotional activities at satellite wagering facilities to increase
their attendance and handle. While the promotional activities at
satellite wagering facilities shall be funded by the marketing
organization, they shall be implemented and coordinated by
representatives of the satellite wagering facilities and the
thoroughbred racing associations or fairs then conducting a live race
meet. The organization shall consist of the following members: two
members, one from the northern zone and one from the combined central
and southern zones, appointed by the thoroughbred racetracks; two
members, one from the northern zone and one from the combined central
and southern zones, appointed by the owners' organization
responsible for contracting with associations and fairs with respect
to the conduct of racing meetings; and two members, one from the
northern zone and one from the combined central and southern zones,
appointed by the organization representing racing and satellite
fairs.
   (b) The marketing organization formed pursuant to subdivision (a)
shall, by November 1 of each year, submit a written report to the
board on a statewide marketing and promotion plan for the upcoming
calendar year. In addition, the organization shall annually present
to the board at the board's
November meeting a verbal report on the statewide marketing and
promotion plan for the upcoming calendar year. The plan shall be
implemented as determined by the organization. The organization shall
receive input from all interested industry participants and may

   (c) In addition to the distributions specified in subdivisions (a)
and (b) of Section 19605.7, subdivisions (a) and (b) of Section
19605.71, and Section 19605.72, for thoroughbred and fair meetings
only, from the amount that would normally be available for
commissions and purses, an amount not to exceed 0.25 percent of the
total amount handled by each satellite wagering facility shall be
distributed to the marketing organization formed pursuant to
subdivision (a) for the purposes set forth therein. The amounts
initially distributed to the marketing organization formed pursuant
to subdivision (a) shall be 0.2 percent of the total amount handled
by satellite wagering facilities for thoroughbred and fair meetings
only. The amount distributable to the marketing organization may be
adjusted by the board, in its discretion. However, the adjusted
amounts may not exceed an aggregate of 0.25 percent of the total
amount handled by satellite wagering facilities for thoroughbred and
fair meetings only. Any of the promotion funds that are not expended
in the year in which they are collected may be expended in the
following year. If promotion funds expended in any one year exceed
the amount collected for that year, the funds expended in the
following year shall be reduced by the excess amount. The marketing
organization, on a quarterly basis, shall submit to the board a
written report that accounts for all receipts and expenditures of the

enforcement agency using the decoy shall notify licensees within 72

this requirement by leaving a written notice at the licensed premises
addressed to the licensee, or by mailing a notice addressed to the
licensee.

  SEC. 35.  Section 3344.1 of the Civil Code is amended to read:
   3344.1.  (a) (1) Any person who uses a deceased personality's
name, voice, signature, photograph, or likeness, in any manner, on or
in products, merchandise, or goods, or for purposes of advertising
or selling, or soliciting purchases of, products, merchandise, goods,
or services, without prior consent from the person or persons
specified in subdivision (c), shall be liable for any damages
sustained by the person or persons injured as a result thereof. In
addition, in any action brought under this section, the person who
violated the section shall be liable to the injured party or parties
in an amount equal to the greater of seven hundred fifty dollars
($750) or the actual damages suffered by the injured party or
parties, as a result of the unauthorized use, and any profits from
the unauthorized use that are attributable to the use and are not
taken into account in computing the actual damages. In establishing
these profits, the injured party or parties shall be required to
present proof only of the gross revenue attributable to the use, and
the person who violated the section is required to prove his or her
deductible expenses. Punitive damages may also be awarded to the
injured party or parties. The prevailing party or parties in any
action under this section shall also be entitled to attorney's fees
and costs.
   (2) For purposes of this subdivision, a play, book, magazine,
newspaper, musical composition, audiovisual work, radio or television
program, single and original work of art, work of political or
newsworthy value, or an advertisement or commercial announcement for
any of these works, shall not be considered a product, article of
merchandise, good, or service if it is fictional or nonfictional
entertainment, or a dramatic, literary, or musical work.
   (3) If a work that is protected under paragraph (2) includes
within it a use in connection with a product, article of merchandise,
good, or service, this use shall not be exempt under this
subdivision, notwithstanding the unprotected use's inclusion in a
work otherwise exempt under this subdivision, if the claimant proves
that this use is so directly connected with a product, article of
merchandise, good, or service as to constitute an act of advertising,
selling, or soliciting purchases of that product, article of
merchandise, good, or service by the deceased personality without
prior consent from the person or persons specified in subdivision
(c).
   (b) The rights recognized under this section are property rights,
freely transferable or descendible, in whole or in part, by contract
or by means of any trust or any other testamentary instrument,
executed before or after January 1, 1985. The rights recognized under
this section shall be deemed to have existed at the time of death of
any deceased personality who died prior to January 1, 1985, and,
except as provided in subdivision (o), shall vest in the persons
entitled to these property rights under the testamentary instrument
of the deceased personality effective as of the date of his or her
death. In the absence of an express transfer in a testamentary
instrument of the deceased personality's rights in his or her name,
voice, signature, photograph, or likeness, a provision in the
testamentary instrument that provides for the disposition of the
residue of the deceased personality's assets shall be effective to
transfer the rights recognized under this section in accordance with
the terms of that provision. The rights established by this section
shall also be freely transferable or descendible by contract, trust,
or any other testamentary instrument by any subsequent owner of the
deceased personality's rights as recognized by this section. Nothing
in this section shall be construed to render invalid or unenforceable
any contract entered into by a deceased personality during his or
her lifetime by which the deceased personality assigned the rights,
in whole or in part, to use his or her name, voice, signature,
photograph, or likeness, regardless of whether the contract was
entered into before or after January 1, 1985.
   (c) The consent required by this section shall be exercisable by
the person or persons to whom the right of consent, or portion
thereof, has been transferred in accordance with subdivision (b), or
if no transfer has occurred, then by the person or persons to whom
the right of consent, or portion thereof, has passed in accordance
with subdivision (d).
   (d) Subject to subdivisions (b) and (c), after the death of any
person, the rights under this section shall belong to the following
person or persons and may be exercised, on behalf of and for the
benefit of all of those persons, by those persons who, in the
aggregate, are entitled to more than a one-half interest in the
rights:
   (1) The entire interest in those rights belongs to the surviving
spouse of the deceased personality unless there are any surviving
children or grandchildren of the deceased personality, in which case
one-half of the entire interest in those rights belongs to the
surviving spouse.
   (2) The entire interest in those rights belongs to the surviving
children of the deceased personality and to the surviving children of
any dead child of the deceased personality unless the deceased
personality has a surviving spouse, in which case the ownership of a
one-half interest in rights is divided among the surviving children
and grandchildren.
   (3) If there is no surviving spouse, and no surviving children or
grandchildren, then the entire interest in those rights belongs to
the surviving parent or parents of the deceased personality.
   (4) The rights of the deceased personality's children and
grandchildren are in all cases divided among them and exercisable in
the manner provided in Section 240 of the Probate Code according to
the number of the deceased personality's children represented. The
share of the children of a dead child of a deceased personality can
be exercised only by the action of a majority of them.
   (e) If any deceased personality does not transfer his or her
rights under this section by contract, or by means of a trust or
testamentary instrument, and there are no surviving persons as
described in subdivision (d), then the rights set forth in
subdivision (a) shall terminate.
   (f) (1) A successor in interest to the rights of a deceased
personality under this section or a licensee thereof shall not
recover damages for a use prohibited by this section that occurs
before the successor in interest or licensee registers a claim of the
rights under paragraph (2).
   (2) Any person claiming to be a successor in interest to the
rights of a deceased personality under this section or a licensee
thereof may register that claim with the Secretary of State on a form
prescribed by the Secretary of State and upon payment of a fee as
set forth in subdivision (d) of Section 12195 of the Government Code.
The form shall be verified and shall include the name and date of
death of the deceased personality, the name and address of the
claimant, the basis of the claim, and the rights claimed.
   (3) Upon receipt and after filing of any document under this
section, the Secretary of State shall post the document along with
the entire registry of persons claiming to be a successor in interest
to the rights of a deceased personality or a registered licensee
under this section upon the Secretary of State's Internet Web site.
The Secretary of State may microfilm or reproduce by other techniques
any of the filings or documents and destroy the original filing or
document. The microfilm or other reproduction of any document under
this section shall be admissible in any court of law. The microfilm
or other reproduction of any document may be destroyed by the
Secretary of State 70 years after the death of the personality named
therein.
   (4) Claims registered under this subdivision shall be public
records.
   (g) An action shall not be brought under this section by reason of
any use of a deceased personality's name, voice, signature,
photograph, or likeness occurring after the expiration of 70 years
after the death of the deceased personality.
   (h) As used in this section, "deceased personality" means any
natural person whose name, voice, signature, photograph, or likeness
has commercial value at the time of his or her death, or because of
his or her death, whether or not during the lifetime of that natural
person the person used his or her name, voice, signature, photograph,
or likeness on or in products, merchandise, or goods, or for
purposes of advertising or selling, or solicitation of purchase of,
products, merchandise, goods, or services. A "deceased personality"
shall include, without limitation, any such natural person who has
died within 70 years prior to January 1, 1985.
   (i) As used in this section, "photograph" means any photograph or
photographic reproduction, still or moving, or any videotape or live
television transmission, of any person, such that the deceased
personality is readily identifiable. A deceased personality shall be
deemed to be readily identifiable from a photograph if one who views
the photograph with the naked eye can reasonably determine who the
person depicted in the photograph is.
   (j) For purposes of this section, the use of a name, voice,
signature, photograph, or likeness in connection with any news,
public affairs, or sports broadcast or account, or any political
campaign, shall not constitute a use for which consent is required
under subdivision (a).
   (k) The use of a name, voice, signature, photograph, or likeness
in a commercial medium shall not constitute a use for which consent
is required under subdivision (a) solely because the material
containing the use is commercially sponsored or contains paid
advertising. Rather, it shall be a question of fact whether or not
the use of the deceased personality's name, voice, signature,
photograph, or likeness was so directly connected with the commercial
sponsorship or with the paid advertising as to constitute a use for
which consent is required under subdivision (a).
   (l) Nothing in this section shall apply to the owners or employees
of any medium used for advertising, including, but not limited to,
newspapers, magazines, radio and television networks and stations,
cable television systems, billboards, and transit advertisements, by
whom any advertisement or solicitation in violation of this section
is published or disseminated, unless it is established that the
owners or employees had knowledge of the unauthorized use of the
deceased personality's name, voice, signature, photograph, or
likeness as prohibited by this section.
   (m) The remedies provided for in this section are cumulative and
shall be in addition to any others provided for by law.
   (n) This section shall apply to the adjudication of liability and
the imposition of any damages or other remedies in cases in which the
liability, damages, and other remedies arise from acts occurring
directly in this state. For purposes of this section, acts giving
rise to liability shall be limited to the use, on or in products,
merchandise, goods, or services, or the advertising or selling, or
soliciting purchases of, products, merchandise, goods, or services
prohibited by this section.
   (o) Notwithstanding any provision of this section to the contrary,
if an action was taken prior to May 1, 2007, to exercise rights
recognized under this section relating to a deceased personality who
died prior to January 1, 1985, by a person described in subdivision
(d), other than a person who was disinherited by the deceased
personality in a testamentary instrument, and the exercise of those
rights was not challenged successfully in a court action by a person
described in subdivision (b), that exercise shall not be affected by
subdivision (b). In that case, the rights that would otherwise vest
in one or more persons described in subdivision (b) shall vest solely
in the person or persons described in subdivision (d), other than a
person disinherited by the deceased personality in a testamentary
instrument, for all future purposes.
   (p) The rights recognized by this section are expressly made
retroactive, including to those deceased personalities who died
before January 1, 1985.
  SEC. 36.  Section 170.9 of the Code of Civil Procedure is amended
to read:
   170.9.  (a) A judge shall not accept gifts from a single source in

   (e) Payments, advances, or reimbursements for travel, including
actual transportation and related lodging and subsistence that is
reasonably related to a judicial or governmental purpose, or to an
issue of state, national, or international public policy, are not
prohibited or limited by this section if any of the following apply:
   (1) The travel is in connection with a speech, practice
demonstration, or group or panel discussion given or participated in
by the judge, the lodging and subsistence expenses are limited to the

   (2) The travel is provided by a government, a governmental agency
or authority, a foreign government, a foreign bar association, an
international service organization, a bona fide public or private
educational institution, as defined in Section 203 of the Revenue and
Taxation Code, or a nonprofit charitable or religious organization
that is exempt from taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal
Revenue Code, or by a person domiciled outside the United States who
substantially satisfies the requirements for tax-exempt status under
Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
   For purposes of this section, "foreign bar association" means an
association of attorneys located outside the United States (A) that
performs functions substantially equivalent to those performed by
state or local bar associations in this state and (B) that permits
membership by attorneys in that country representing various legal
specialties and does not limit membership to attorneys generally
representing one side or another in litigation. "International
service organization" means a bona fide international service
organization of which the judge is a member. A judge who accepts
travel payments from an international service organization pursuant
to this subdivision shall not preside over or participate in
decisions affecting that organization, its state or local chapters,

   (3) The travel is provided by a state or local bar association or
judges professional association in connection with testimony before a

(a).
   (g) No judge shall accept any honorarium.
   (h) "Honorarium" means a payment made in consideration for any

students in bona fide educational institutions, and to associations
or groups of judges.
   (j) Subdivisions (a) and (e) shall apply to all payments,
advances, and reimbursements for travel and related lodging and
subsistence.
   (k) This section does not apply to any honorarium that is not used
and, within 30 days after receipt, is either returned to the donor
or delivered to the Controller for deposit in the General Fund
without being claimed as a deduction from income for tax purposes.
   (  l  ) "Gift" means a payment to the extent that
consideration of equal or greater value is not received and includes
a rebate or discount in the price of anything of value unless the
rebate or discount is made in the regular course of business to
members of the public without regard to official status. A person,
other than a defendant in a criminal action, who claims that a
payment is not a gift by reason of receipt of consideration has the
burden of proving that the consideration received is of equal or
greater value. However, the term "gift" does not include any of the
following:
   (1) Informational material such as books, reports, pamphlets,

"travel," as described in paragraph (3) of subdivision (e).
   (m) The Commission on Judicial Performance shall enforce the
prohibitions of this section with regard to judges of the superior
courts and justices of the courts of appeal and the Supreme Court.
With regard to subordinate judicial officers, consistent with Section
18.1 of Article VI of the California Constitution, the court
employing the subordinate judicial officer shall exercise initial
jurisdiction to enforce the prohibitions of this section, and the
Commission on Judicial Performance shall exercise discretionary
jurisdiction with respect to the enforcement of the prohibitions of

  SEC. 36.5.  Section 425.17 of the Code of Civil Procedure is
amended to read:
   425.17.  (a) The Legislature finds and declares that there has
been a disturbing abuse of Section 425.16, the California Anti-SLAPP
Law, which has undermined the exercise of the constitutional rights
of freedom of speech and petition for the redress of grievances,
contrary to the purpose and intent of Section 425.16. The Legislature
finds and declares that it is in the public interest to encourage
continued participation in matters of public significance, and that
this participation should not be chilled through abuse of the
judicial process or Section 425.16.
   (b) Section 425.16 does not apply to any action brought solely in
the public interest or on behalf of the general public if all of the
following conditions exist:
   (1) The plaintiff does not seek any relief greater than or
different from the relief sought for the general public or a class of
which the plaintiff is a member. A claim for attorney's fees, costs,
or penalties does not constitute greater or different relief for
purposes of this subdivision.
   (2) The action, if successful, would enforce an important right
affecting the public interest, and would confer a significant
benefit, whether pecuniary or nonpecuniary, on the general public or
a large class of persons.
   (3) Private enforcement is necessary and places a disproportionate
financial burden on the plaintiff in relation to the plaintiff's
stake in the matter.
   (c) Section 425.16 does not apply to any cause of action brought
against a person primarily engaged in the business of selling or
leasing goods or services, including, but not limited to, insurance,
securities, or financial instruments, arising from any statement or
conduct by that person if both of the following conditions exist:
   (1) The statement or conduct consists of representations of fact
about that person's or a business competitor's business operations,
goods, or services, that is made for the purpose of obtaining
approval for, promoting, or securing sales or leases of, or
commercial transactions in, the person's goods or services, or the
statement or conduct was made in the course of delivering the person'
s goods or services.
   (2) The intended audience is an actual or potential buyer or
customer, or a person likely to repeat the statement to, or otherwise
influence, an actual or potential buyer or customer, or the
statement or conduct arose out of or within the context of a
regulatory approval process, proceeding, or investigation, except
where the statement or conduct was made by a telephone corporation in
the course of a proceeding before the California Public Utilities
Commission and is the subject of a lawsuit brought by a competitor,
notwithstanding that the conduct or statement concerns an important
public issue.
   (d) Subdivisions (b) and (c) do not apply to any of the following:

   (1) Any person enumerated in subdivision (b) of Section 2 of
Article I of the California Constitution or Section 1070 of the
Evidence Code, or any person engaged in the dissemination of ideas or
expression in any book or academic journal, while engaged in the
gathering, receiving, or processing of information for communication
to the public.
   (2) Any action against any person or entity based upon the
creation, dissemination, exhibition, advertisement, or other similar
promotion of any dramatic, literary, musical, political, or artistic
work, including, but not limited to, a motion picture or television
program, or an article published in a newspaper or magazine of
general circulation.
   (3) Any nonprofit organization that receives more than 50 percent
of its annual revenues from federal, state, or local government
grants, awards, programs, or reimbursements for services rendered.
   (e) If any trial court denies a special motion to strike on the
grounds that the action or cause of action is exempt pursuant to this
section, the appeal provisions in subdivision (i) of Section 425.16
and paragraph (13) of subdivision (a) of Section 904.1 do not apply
to that action or cause of action.
  SEC. 37.  Section 630.01 of the Code of Civil Procedure is amended
to read:
   630.01.  For purposes of this chapter:
   (a) "Expedited jury trial" means a consensual, binding jury trial
before a reduced jury panel and a judicial officer.
   (b) "High/low agreement" means a written agreement entered into by
the parties that specifies a minimum amount of damages that a
plaintiff is guaranteed to receive from the defendant, and a maximum
amount of damages that the defendant will be liable for, regardless
of the ultimate verdict returned by the jury. Neither the existence
of, nor the amounts contained in, any high/low agreements may be
disclosed to the jury.
   (c) "Post-trial motions" does not include motions relating to
costs and attorney's fees, motions to correct a judgment for a
clerical error, and motions to enforce a judgment.
  SEC. 38.  Section 630.08 of the Code of Civil Procedure is amended
to read:
   630.08.  (a) By agreeing to participate in the expedited jury
trial process, the parties agree to waive any motions for directed
verdict, motions to set aside the verdict or any judgment rendered by
the jury, or motions for a new trial on the basis of inadequate or
excessive damages.
   (b) The court shall not set aside any verdict or any judgment,
shall not direct that judgment be entered in favor of a party
entitled to judgment as a matter of law, and shall not order a new
trial, except on                                            the
grounds stated in Section 630.09.
  SEC. 39.  Section 877 of the Code of Civil Procedure is amended to
read:
   877.  Where a release, dismissal with or without prejudice, or a
covenant not to sue or not to enforce judgment is given in good faith
before verdict or judgment to one or more of a number of tortfeasors
claimed to be liable for the same tort, or to one or more other
co-obligors mutually subject to contribution rights, it shall have
the following effect:
   (a) It shall not discharge any other such party from liability
unless its terms so provide, but it shall reduce the claims against
the others in the amount stipulated by the release, the dismissal or
the covenant, or in the amount of the consideration paid for it,
whichever is the greater.
   (b) It shall discharge the party to whom it is given from all
liability for any contribution to any other parties.
   (c) This section shall not apply to co-obligors who have expressly
agreed in writing to an apportionment of liability for losses or
claims among themselves.
   (d) This section shall not apply to a release, dismissal with or
without prejudice, or a covenant not to sue or not to enforce
judgment given to a co-obligor on an alleged contract debt where the
contract was made prior to January 1, 1988.
  SEC. 40.  Section 1010.6 of the Code of Civil Procedure is amended
to read:
   1010.6.  (a) A document may be served electronically in an action
filed with the court as provided in this section, in accordance with
rules adopted pursuant to subdivision (d).
   (1) For purposes of this section:
   (A) "Electronic service" means service of a document, on a party
or other person, by either electronic transmission or electronic
notification. Electronic service may be performed directly by a
party, by an agent of a party, including the party's attorney, or
through an electronic filing service provider.
   (B) "Electronic transmission" means the transmission of a document
by electronic means to the electronic service address at or through
which a party or other person has authorized electronic service.
   (C) "Electronic notification" means the notification of the party
or other person that a document is served by sending an electronic
message to the electronic address at or through which the party or
other person has authorized electronic service, specifying the exact
name of the document served, and providing a hyperlink at which the
served document may be viewed and downloaded.
   (2) If a document may be served by mail, express mail, overnight
delivery, or facsimile transmission, electronic service of the
document is authorized when a party has agreed to accept service
electronically in that action.
   (3) In any action in which a party has agreed to accept electronic
service under paragraph (2), or in which the court has ordered
electronic service under subdivision (c), the court may
electronically serve any document issued by the court that is not
required to be personally served in the same manner that parties
electronically serve documents. The electronic service of documents
by the court shall have the same legal effect as service by mail,
except as provided in paragraph (4).
   (4) Electronic service of a document is complete at the time of
the electronic transmission of the document or at the time that the
electronic notification of service of the document is sent. However,
any period of notice, or any right or duty to do any act or make any
response within any period or on a date certain after the service of
the document, which time period or date is prescribed by statute or
rule of court, shall be extended after service by electronic means by
two court days, but the extension shall not apply to extend the time
for filing any of the following:
   (A) A notice of intention to move for new trial.
   (B) A notice of intention to move to vacate judgment under Section
663a.
   (C) A notice of appeal.
   This extension applies in the absence of a specific exception
provided by any other statute or rule of court.
   (b) A trial court may adopt local rules permitting electronic
filing of documents, subject to rules adopted pursuant to subdivision
(d) and the following conditions:
   (1) A document that is filed electronically shall have the same
legal effect as an original paper document.
   (2) (A) When a document to be filed requires the signature, not
under penalty of perjury, of an attorney or a self-represented party,
the document shall be deemed to have been signed by that attorney or
self-represented party if filed electronically.
   (B) When a document to be filed requires the signature, under
penalty of perjury, of any person, the document shall be deemed to
have been signed by that person if filed electronically and if a
printed form of the document has been signed by that person prior to,
or on the same day as, the date of filing. The attorney or person
filing the document represents, by the act of filing, that the
declarant has complied with this section. The attorney or person
filing the document shall maintain the printed form of the document
bearing the original signature and make it available for review and
copying upon the request of the court or any party to the action or
proceeding in which it is filed.
   (3) Any document that is electronically filed with the court after
the close of business on any day shall be deemed to have been filed
on the next court day. "Close of business," as used in this
paragraph, shall mean 5 p.m. or the time at which the court would not
accept filing at the court's filing counter, whichever is earlier.
   (4) The court receiving a document filed electronically shall
issue a confirmation that the document has been received and filed.
The confirmation shall serve as proof that the document has been
filed.
   (5) Upon electronic filing of a complaint, petition, or other
document that must be served with a summons, a trial court, upon
request of the party filing the action, shall issue a summons with
the court seal and the case number. The court shall keep the summons
in its records and may electronically transmit a copy of the summons
to the requesting party. Personal service of a printed form of the
electronic summons shall have the same legal effect as personal
service of an original summons. If a trial court plans to
electronically transmit a summons to the party filing a complaint,
the court shall immediately upon receipt of the complaint notify the
attorney or party that a summons will be electronically transmitted
to the electronic address given by the person filing the complaint.
   (6) The court shall permit a party or attorney to file an
application for waiver of court fees and costs, in lieu of requiring
the payment of the filing fee, as part of the process involving the
electronic filing of a document. The court shall consider and
determine the application in accordance with Sections 68630 to 68641,
inclusive, of the Government Code and shall not require the party or
attorney to submit any documentation other than that set forth in
Sections 68630 to 68641, inclusive, of the Government Code. Nothing
in this section shall require the court to waive a filing fee that is
not otherwise waivable.
   (c) If a trial court adopts rules conforming to subdivision (b),
it may provide by order that all parties to an action file and serve
documents electronically in a class action, a consolidated action, or
a group of actions, a coordinated action, or an action that is
deemed complex under Judicial Council rules, provided that the trial
court's order does not cause undue hardship or significant prejudice
to any party in the action.
   (d) The Judicial Council shall adopt uniform rules for the
electronic filing and service of documents in the trial courts of the
state, which shall include statewide policies on vendor contracts,
privacy, and access to public records, and rules relating to the
integrity of electronic service. These rules shall conform to the
conditions set forth in this section, as amended from time to time.
  SEC. 41.  Section 1094.5 of the Code of Civil Procedure is amended
to read:
   1094.5.  (a) Where the writ is issued for the purpose of inquiring
into the validity of any final administrative order or decision made
as the result of a proceeding in which by law a hearing is required
to be given, evidence is required to be taken, and discretion in the
determination of facts is vested in the inferior tribunal,
corporation, board, or officer, the case shall be heard by the court
sitting without a jury. All or part of the record of the proceedings
before the inferior tribunal, corporation, board, or officer may be
filed with the petition, may be filed with respondent's points and
authorities, or may be ordered to be filed by the court. Except when
otherwise prescribed by statute, the cost of preparing the record
shall be borne by the petitioner. Where the petitioner has proceeded
pursuant to Article 6 (commencing with Section 68630) of Chapter 2 of
Title 8 of the Government Code and the Rules of Court implementing
that section and where the transcript is necessary to a proper review
of the administrative proceedings, the cost of preparing the
transcript shall be borne by the respondent. Where the party seeking
the writ has proceeded pursuant to Section 1088.5, the administrative
record shall be filed as expeditiously as possible, and may be filed
with the petition, or by the respondent after payment of the costs
by the petitioner, where required, or as otherwise directed by the
court. If the expense of preparing all or any part of the record has
been borne by the prevailing party, the expense shall be taxable as
costs.
   (b) The inquiry in such a case shall extend to the questions
whether the respondent has proceeded without, or in excess of,
jurisdiction; whether there was a fair trial; and whether there was
any prejudicial abuse of discretion. Abuse of discretion is
established if the respondent has not proceeded in the manner
required by law, the order or decision is not supported by the
findings, or the findings are not supported by the evidence.
   (c) Where it is claimed that the findings are not supported by the
evidence, in cases in which the court is authorized by law to
exercise its independent judgment on the evidence, abuse of
discretion is established if the court determines that the findings
are not supported by the weight of the evidence. In all other cases,
abuse of discretion is established if the court determines that the
findings are not supported by substantial evidence in the light of
the whole record.
   (d) Notwithstanding subdivision (c), in cases arising from private
hospital boards or boards of directors of districts organized
pursuant to the Local Health Care District Law (Chapter 1 (commencing
with Section 32000) of Division 23 of the Health and Safety Code) or
governing bodies of municipal hospitals formed pursuant to Article 7
(commencing with Section 37600) or Article 8 (commencing with
Section 37650) of Chapter 5 of Part 2 of Division 3 of Title 4 of the
Government Code, abuse of discretion is established if the court
determines that the findings are not supported by substantial
evidence in the light of the whole record. However, in all cases in
which the petition alleges discriminatory actions prohibited by
Section 1316 of the Health and Safety Code, and the plaintiff makes a
preliminary showing of substantial evidence in support of that
allegation, the court shall exercise its independent judgment on the
evidence and abuse of discretion shall be established if the court
determines that the findings are not supported by the weight of the
evidence.
   (e) Where the court finds that there is relevant evidence that, in
the exercise of reasonable diligence, could not have been produced
or that was improperly excluded at the hearing before respondent, it
may enter judgment as provided in subdivision (f) remanding the case
to be reconsidered in the light of that evidence; or, in cases in
which the court is authorized by law to exercise its independent
judgment on the evidence, the court may admit the evidence at the
hearing on the writ without remanding the case.
   (f) The court shall enter judgment either commanding respondent to
set aside the order or decision, or denying the writ. Where the
judgment commands that the order or decision be set aside, it may
order the reconsideration of the case in light of the court's opinion
and judgment and may order respondent to take such further action as
is specially enjoined upon it by law, but the judgment shall not
limit or control in any way the discretion legally vested in the
respondent.
   (g) Except as provided in subdivision (h), the court in which
proceedings under this section are instituted may stay the operation
of the administrative order or decision pending the judgment of the
court, or until the filing of a notice of appeal from the judgment or
until the expiration of the time for filing the notice, whichever
occurs first. However, no such stay shall be imposed or continued if
the court is satisfied that it is against the public interest. The
application for the stay shall be accompanied by proof of service of
a copy of the application on the respondent. Service shall be made in
the manner provided by Title 4.5 (commencing with Section 405) of
Part 2 or Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 1010) of Title 14 of
Part 2. If an appeal is taken from a denial of the writ, the order or
decision of the agency shall not be stayed except upon the order of
the court to which the appeal is taken. However, in cases where a
stay is in effect at the time of filing the notice of appeal, the
stay shall be continued by operation of law for a period of 20 days
from the filing of the notice. If an appeal is taken from the
granting of the writ, the order or decision of the agency is stayed
pending the determination of the appeal unless the court to which the
appeal is taken shall otherwise order. Where any final
administrative order or decision is the subject of proceedings under
this section, if the petition shall have been filed while the penalty
imposed is in full force and effect, the determination shall not be
considered to have become moot in cases where the penalty imposed by
the administrative agency has been completed or complied with during
the pendency of the proceedings.
   (h) (1) The court in which proceedings under this section are
instituted may stay the operation of the administrative order or
decision of any licensed hospital or any state agency made after a
hearing required by statute to be conducted under the Administrative
Procedure Act, as set forth in Chapter 5 (commencing with Section
11500) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code,
conducted by the agency itself or an administrative law judge on the
staff of the Office of Administrative Hearings pending the judgment
of the court, or until the filing of a notice of appeal from the
judgment or until the expiration of the time for filing the notice,
whichever occurs first. However, the stay shall not be imposed or
continued unless the court is satisfied that the public interest will
not suffer and that the licensed hospital or agency is unlikely to
prevail ultimately on the merits. The application for the stay shall
be accompanied by proof of service of a copy of the application on
the respondent. Service shall be made in the manner provided by Title
4.5 (commencing with Section 405) of Part 2 or Chapter 5 (commencing
with Section 1010) of Title 14 of Part 2.
   (2) The standard set forth in this subdivision for obtaining a
stay shall apply to any administrative order or decision of an agency
that issues licenses pursuant to Division 2 (commencing with Section
500) of the Business and Professions Code or pursuant to the
Osteopathic Initiative Act or the Chiropractic Initiative Act. With
respect to orders or decisions of other state agencies, the standard
in this subdivision shall apply only when the agency has adopted the
proposed decision of the administrative law judge in its entirety or
has adopted the proposed decision but reduced the proposed penalty
pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 11517 of the Government Code;
otherwise the standard in subdivision (g) shall apply.
   (3) If an appeal is taken from a denial of the writ, the order or
decision of the hospital or agency shall not be stayed except upon
the order of the court to which the appeal is taken. However, in
cases where a stay is in effect at the time of filing the notice of
appeal, the stay shall be continued by operation of law for a period
of 20 days from the filing of the notice. If an appeal is taken from
the granting of the writ, the order or decision of the hospital or
agency is stayed pending the determination of the appeal unless the
court to which the appeal is taken shall otherwise order. Where any
final administrative order or decision is the subject of proceedings
under this section, if the petition shall have been filed while the
penalty imposed is in full force and effect, the determination shall
not be considered to have become moot in cases where the penalty
imposed by the administrative agency has been completed or complied
with during the pendency of the proceedings.
   (i) Any administrative record received for filing by the clerk of
the court may be disposed of as provided in Sections 1952, 1952.2,
and 1952.3.
   (j) Effective January 1, 1996, this subdivision shall apply to
state employees in State Bargaining Unit 5. For purposes of this
section, the court is not authorized to review any disciplinary
decisions reached pursuant to Section 19576.1 of the Government Code.

court in the jurisdiction of the appointment. Filing, service, and
format of the petition and any oppositions and reply papers shall

determination, or if the county office has a negative certification
pursuant to Section 1240, the Superintendent, shall, as necessary to

   (1) There is hereby assigned to the California School Finance
Authority, established pursuant to Section 17172, sixty-eight million

established using the following criteria:
   (A) Applicants that are able to obtain credit enhancement for a
qualified school construction bond financing, including a bank letter
of credit, or contribute substantial equity to a project, or are
otherwise able to obtain investment-grade credit ratings shall
receive priority over other applicants.
   (B) If multiple applicants satisfy the criteria described in

  SEC. 50.  Section 17250.30 of the Education Code is amended to
read:
   17250.30.  (a) Any design-build entity that is selected to design
and build a project pursuant to this chapter shall possess or obtain
sufficient bonding to cover the contract amount for nondesign
services, and errors and omissions insurance coverage sufficient to
cover all design and architectural services provided in the contract.
This chapter does not prohibit a general or engineering contractor
from being designated the lead entity on a design-build entity for
the purposes of purchasing necessary bonding to cover the activities
of the design-build entity.
   (b) Any payment or performance bond written for the purposes of
this chapter shall use a bond form developed by the Department of
General Services pursuant to subdivision (g) of Section 14661 of the
Government Code. The purpose of this subdivision is to promote
uniformity of bond forms to be used on school district design-build
projects throughout the state.
   (c) (1) All subcontracts that were not listed by the design-build
entity in accordance with Section 17250.25 shall be awarded by the
design-build entity.
   (2) The design-build entity shall do both of the following:
   (A) Provide public notice of the availability of work to be
subcontracted.
   (B) Provide a fixed date and time on which the subcontracted work
will be awarded.
   (3) Subcontractors bidding on contracts pursuant to this
subdivision shall be afforded the protections contained in Chapter 4
(commencing with Section 4100) of Part 1 of Division 2 of the Public
Contract Code.
   (4) (A) If the school district elects to award a project pursuant
to this section, retention proceeds withheld by the school district
from the design-build entity shall not exceed 5 percent if a
performance and payment bond, issued by an admitted surety insurer,
is required in the solicitation of bids.
   (B) In a contract between the design-build entity and a
subcontractor, and in a contract between a subcontractor and any
subcontractor thereunder, the percentage of the retention proceeds
withheld shall not exceed the percentage specified in the contract
between the school district and the design-build entity. If the
design-build entity provides written notice to any subcontractor who
is not a member of the design-build entity, prior to or at the time
the bid is requested, that a bond may be required and the
subcontractor subsequently is unable or refuses to furnish a bond to
the design-build entity, then the design-build entity may withhold
retention proceeds in excess of the percentage specified in the
contract between the school district and the design-build entity from
any payment made by the design-build entity to the subcontractor.
   (5) In accordance with the provisions of applicable state law, the
design-build entity may be permitted to substitute securities in
lieu of the withholding from progress payments. Substitutions shall
be made in accordance with Section 22300 of the Public Contract Code.

   (d) (1) For contracts awarded prior to the effective date of
either the regulations adopted by the Department of Industrial
Relations pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 1771.55 of the Labor
Code or the fees established by the department pursuant to paragraph
(2), the school district shall establish and enforce a labor
compliance program containing the requirements outlined in Section
1771.5 of the Labor Code or shall contract with a third party to
operate a labor compliance program containing the requirements
outlined in Section 1771.5 of the Labor Code. This requirement shall
not apply to projects where the school district or the design-build
entity has entered into a collective bargaining agreement that binds
all of the contractors performing work on the project.
   (2) For contracts awarded on or after the effective date of both
the regulations adopted by the Department of Industrial Relations
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 1771.55 of the Labor Code and
the fees established by the department pursuant to this paragraph,
the school district shall pay a fee to the department, in an amount
that the department shall establish, and as it may from time to time
amend, sufficient to support the department's costs in ensuring
compliance with and enforcing prevailing wage requirements on the
project, and labor compliance enforcement as set forth in subdivision
(b) of Section 1771.55. All fees collected pursuant to this
subdivision shall be deposited in the State Public Works Enforcement
Fund created by Section 1771.3 of the Labor Code, and shall be used
only for enforcement of prevailing wage requirements on those
projects.
   (3) The Department of Industrial Relations may waive the fee set
forth in paragraph (2) for a school district that has previously been
granted approval by the director to initiate and operate a labor
compliance program on the district's projects, and that requests to
continue to operate that labor compliance program on its projects in
lieu of labor compliance by the department pursuant to subdivision
(b) of Section 1771.55. The fee shall not be waived for a district
that contracts with a third party to initiate and enforce labor
compliance programs on the district's projects.

8 of Chapter 83 of the Statutes of 1989, is amended to read:
   41203.  Any calculation of the moneys to be applied by the state
for the support of school districts and community college districts,
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI of the
California Constitution, shall be made as a single, aggregate
calculation for the school districts serving kindergarten and grades
1 to 12, inclusive, for the community college districts, and for the
direct elementary and secondary level instructional services provided
by the State of California.
  SEC. 63.  Section 41204 of the Education Code, as amended by
Section 26 of Chapter 427 of the Statutes of 1992, is amended to
read:
   41204.  (a) It is the intent of the Legislature, pursuant to "The
Classroom Instructional Improvement and Accountability Act," that
school districts, as defined in Section 41302.5, and community
college districts, as constituted during the 1986-87 fiscal year,
annually receive a basic minimum portion of the revenues that is
equivalent to the percentage of revenues that were deposited to the
General Fund in that year.
   (b) In recognition of this intent, it is further the intent of the
Legislature that both houses and the Governor be guided by the
following:
   (1) If the revenues of a tax that were deposited in the General
Fund in the 1986-87 fiscal year are redirected to another fund, or
level of government, then the percentages of General Fund revenues
required to be applied by the state for the support of school
districts, community college districts, and state agencies providing
direct elementary and secondary level instructional services shall be
recalculated as if those revenues were not deposited in the General
Fund in the 1986-87 fiscal year.
   (2) If the allocated local proceeds of taxes, as defined by
subdivisions (g) and (h) of Section 41202, received by a school
district or community college district during the 1986-87 fiscal year
are redirected to other entities or statutorily or constitutionally
reduced or eliminated, the additional General Fund support provided
to replace the allocated local proceeds of taxes may not be counted
as General Fund revenues required to be applied for the support of
school districts, community college districts, and state agencies
providing direct elementary and secondary level instructional
services pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 8 of
Article XVI of the California Constitution, unless the percentage of
General Fund revenues appropriated to school districts, community
college districts, and state agencies providing direct elementary and
secondary level instructional services in the 1986-87 fiscal year is
adjusted to reflect the amount of General Fund support that would
have been provided in the 1986-87 fiscal year had the allocated local
proceeds of taxes been correspondingly reduced.
   (3) If a program of a school district, as defined in Section
41302.5, or of a community college district was supported by state
funds from a source other than the General Fund during the 1986-87
fiscal year and General Fund moneys are subsequently provided in
support of the program and in lieu of the other source of funds, the
supplanting General Fund revenues shall not be counted as moneys to
be applied by the state for the support of school districts or
community college districts pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 8
of Article XVI of the California Constitution.
   (c) Programs that existed in the 1986-87 fiscal year, and were not
the functional responsibility of school districts or community
college districts in that fiscal year, shall not be shifted to the
responsibility or financial support of school districts or community
college districts without appropriate corresponding adjustment to the
calculations made pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 8 of
Article XVI of the California Constitution. Nothing in this
subdivision shall be construed to prevent the creation of a new
educational program that is supported by a General Fund appropriation
made in conformity with subdivision (b) of Section 8 of Article XVI
of the California Constitution.
   (d) Enrollment, average daily attendance, or average daily
attendance equivalents used for the purpose of calculating "increases
in enrollment" pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) of
Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution shall not be
redefined, adjusted, or otherwise recalculated unless the appropriate
action is taken to neutralize the effect of the change with respect
to the adjustment required to be made for increases in enrollment.
  SEC. 64.  Section 41320.1 of the Education Code is amended to read:

   41320.1.  Acceptance by the district of the apportionments made
pursuant to Section 41320 constitutes the agreement by the district
to all of the following conditions:
   (a) The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall appoint a
trustee who has recognized expertise in management and finance and
may employ, on a short-term basis, any staff necessary to assist the
trustee, including, but not limited to, certified public accountants,
as follows:
   (1) The expenses incurred by the trustee and any necessary staff
shall be borne by the district.
   (2) The Superintendent shall establish the terms and conditions of
the employment, including the remuneration of the trustee. The
trustee shall serve at the pleasure of, and report directly to, the
Superintendent.
   (3) The trustee, and any necessary staff, shall serve until the
loan authorized by this section is repaid, the district has adequate
fiscal systems and controls in place, and the Superintendent has
determined that the district's future compliance with the fiscal plan
approved for the district under Section 41320 is probable. The
Superintendent shall notify the county superintendent of schools, the
Legislature, the Department of Finance, and the Controller no less
than 60 days prior to the time that the Superintendent expects these
conditions to be met.
   (4) Before the district repays the loan, including interest, the
recipient of the loan shall select an auditor from a list established
by the Superintendent and the Controller to conduct an audit of its
fiscal systems. If the fiscal systems are deemed to be inadequate,
the Superintendent may retain the trustee until the deficiencies are
corrected. The cost of this audit and any additional cost of the
trustee shall be borne by the district.
   (5) Notwithstanding any other law, all reports submitted to the
trustee are public records.
   (6) To facilitate the appointment of the trustee and the
employment of any necessary staff, for the purposes of this section,
the Superintendent is exempt from the requirements of Article 6
(commencing with Section 999) of Chapter 6 of Division 4 of the
Military and Veterans Code and Part 2 (commencing with Section 10100)
of Division 2 of the Public Contract Code.
   (7) Notwithstanding any other law, the Superintendent may appoint
an employee of the department to act as trustee for up to the
duration of the trusteeship. The salary and benefits of that employee
shall be established by the Superintendent and paid by the school
district. During the time of appointment, the employee is an employee
of the school district, but shall remain in the same retirement
system under the same plan as if the employee had remained in the
department. Upon the expiration or termination of the appointment,
the employee shall have the right to return to his or her former
position, or to a position at substantially the same level as that
position, with the department. The time served in the appointment
shall be counted for all purposes as if the employee had served that
time in his or her former position with the department.
   (b) The trustee appointed by the Superintendent shall monitor and
review the operation of the district. During the period of his or her
service, the trustee may stay or rescind any action of the local
district governing board that, in the judgment of the trustee, may
affect the financial condition of the district. The Superintendent
may establish timelines and prescribe formats for reports and other
materials to be used by the trustee to monitor and review the
operations of the district. The trustee shall approve or reject all
reports and other materials required from the district as a condition
of receiving the apportionment. The Superintendent, upon the
recommendation of the trustee, may reduce any apportionment to the
district in an amount up to two hundred dollars ($200) per day for
each late or unacceptable report or other material required under
this part, and shall report to the Legislature any failure of the
district to comply with the requirements of this section. If the
Superintendent determines, at any time, that the fiscal plan approved
for the district under Section 41320 is unsatisfactory, he or she
may modify the plan as necessary, and the district shall comply with
the plan as modified.
   (c) At the request of the Superintendent, the Controller shall
transfer to the department, from an apportionment to which the
district would otherwise have been entitled pursuant to Section
42238, the amount necessary to pay the expenses incurred by the
trustee and associated costs incurred by the county superintendent of
schools.
   (d) For the fiscal year in which the apportionments are disbursed
and each year thereafter, the Controller, or his or her designee,
shall cause an audit to be conducted of the books and accounts of the
district, in lieu of the audit required by Section 41020. At the
Controller's discretion, the audit may be conducted by the
Controller, his or her designee, or an auditor selected by the
district and approved by the Controller. The costs of these audits
shall be borne by the district. These audits shall be required until
the Controller determines, in consultation with the Superintendent,
that the district is financially solvent, but in no event earlier
than one year following the implementation of the plan or later than
the time the
apportionment made is repaid, including interest. In addition, the
Controller shall conduct quality control reviews pursuant to
subdivision (c) of Section 14504.2.
   (e) For all purposes of errors and omissions liability insurance
policies, the trustee appointed pursuant to this section is an
employee of the local education agency to which he or she is
assigned. For the purpose of workers' compensation benefits, the
trustee is an employee of the local education agency to which he or
she is assigned, except that a trustee appointed pursuant to
paragraph (7) of subdivision (a) is an employee of the department for
that purpose.
   (f) Except for an individual appointed by the Superintendent as
trustee pursuant to paragraph (7) of subdivision (a), the
state-appointed trustee is a member of the State Teachers' Retirement
System, if qualified, for the period of service as trustee, unless
the trustee elects in writing not to become a member. A person who is
a member or retirant of the State Teachers' Retirement System at the
time of appointment shall continue to be a member or retirant of the
system for the duration of the appointment. If the trustee chooses
to become a member or is already a member, the trustee shall be
placed on the payroll of the school district for the purposes of
providing appropriate contributions to the system. The Superintendent

schools and regional fiscal teams, in conducting this review.
   (2) Within three months of assuming control over a qualifying

take into account particular types of indicators of financial
distress, or failed to take appropriate remedial actions in the
qualifying district, the Superintendent shall further investigate
whether the county superintendent of schools failed to take into
account those indicators, or similarly failed to take appropriate
actions in other districts with negative or qualified certifications,

practices of the county superintendent to the appropriate policy and
fiscal committees of each house of the Legislature and the Department

through existing state-approved online instructor-led courses,
programs, or both. The California subject matter projects, an
intersegmental, discipline-based professional development network
administered by the University of California, is requested to be the

or their equivalents. If the participating school team employs
instructional assistants who provide instructional services to
English language learners, the team may include these instructional
assistants.

Development Institutes shall provide instruction to an additional
10,000 participants. These participants shall be in addition to the

level on the English language development assessment authorized by
Section 60810, when it is developed.

bilingual-crosscultural certificate, or their equivalents.
   (D) Schools in which the enrollment of English language learners
exceeds 25 percent of the total school enrollment.
   (E) Schools with a full complement of team members as described in

authorized by this section shall receive a stipend, commensurate with
the duration of the institute, of not less than one thousand dollars
($1,000) nor more than two thousand dollars ($2,000), as determined
by the University of California.
   (d) Instruction provided by the institutes shall be consistent
with state-adopted academic content standards and with the English
language development standards adopted pursuant to Section 60811.
   (e) (1) Instruction at the institutes shall consist of an
intensive, sustained training period of no less than 40 hours nor
more than 80 hours during the summer or during an intersession break
or an equivalent instructor-led, online course and shall be
supplemented during the following school year with no fewer than 80
hours nor more than 120 hours of instruction and schoolsite meetings,
held on at least a monthly basis, to focus on the academic progress
of English language learners at that school.
   (2) Instruction at the institutes shall be of sufficient scope,
depth, and duration to fully equip instructional personnel to offer a
comprehensive and rigorous instructional program for English
language learners and to assess pupil progress so these pupils can
meet the academic content and performance standards adopted by the
state board. The instruction shall be designed to increase the
capacity of teachers and other school personnel to provide and assess
standards-based instruction for English language learners.
   (3) The instruction shall be multidisciplinary and focus on
instruction in disciplines for which the state board has adopted
academic content standards. The instruction shall also be
research-based and provide effective models of professional
development in order to ensure that instructional personnel increase
their skills, at a minimum, in all of the following:
   (A) Literacy instruction and assessment for diverse pupil
populations, including instruction in the teaching of reading that is
research-based and consistent with the balanced, comprehensive
strategies required under Section 44757.

agency or postsecondary institution that offers an accredited program
of professional preparation consider providing partial and
proportional credit toward satisfaction of the course requirements to
an enrolled candidate who satisfactorily completes a California
English Language Development Institute program if the program has
been certified by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing as meeting
preparation standards.
   (h) This section does not prohibit a team member from attending an
institute authorized by this section in more than one academic year.

   (i) This section shall not apply to the University of California
unless and until the Regents of the University of California act, by
resolution, to make it applicable.

the purposes of choosing the candidate who is preferred by the party
for a nonpartisan or voter-nominated office.
  SEC. 79.  Section 337 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   337.  "Partisan office" or "party-nominated office" means any of
the following offices:
   (a) President of the United States, Vice President of the United
States, and the delegates therefor.
   (b) Elected member of a party committee.
  SEC. 80.  Section 2151 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   2151.  (a) At the time of registering and of transferring
registration, each elector may disclose the name of the political
party that he or she prefers. The name of that political party shall
be stated in the affidavit of registration and the index.
   (b) (1) The voter registration card shall inform the affiant that
any elector may decline to state a political party preference, but no
person shall be entitled to vote the ballot of any political party
at any primary election for President of the United States or for a
party committee unless he or she has disclosed the name of the party
that he or she prefers or unless he or she has declined to disclose a
party preference and the political party, by party rule duly noticed
to the Secretary of State, authorizes a person who has declined to
disclose a party preference to vote the ballot of that political
party. The voter registration card shall further inform the affiant
that any registered voter may vote for any candidate at a primary
election for state elective office or congressional office,
regardless of the disclosed party preference of the registrant or the
candidate seeking that office or the refusal of the registrant or
candidate to disclose a party preference. This notice shall be
printed in 12-point Times New Roman font.
   (2) The voter registration card shall include a listing of all
qualified political parties. As part of that listing, the voter
registration card shall also contain an option designated "No Party
Preference." This option shall be placed at the beginning of the
listing of qualified political parties.
   (c) No person shall be permitted to vote the ballot of any party
or for any delegates to the convention of any party other than the
party disclosed as preferred in his or her registration, except as
provided by Section 2152 or unless he or she has declined to disclose
a party preference and the party, by party rule duly noticed to the
Secretary of State, authorizes a person who has declined to state a
party affiliation to vote the party ballot or for delegates to the
party convention.
   (d) As of the effective date of the statute that added this
subdivision, any voter who previously stated a political party
affiliation when registering to vote shall be deemed to have
disclosed that same party as his or her political party preference
unless the voter files a new affidavit of registration disclosing a
different political party preference or no political party
preference. Any voter who previously declined to state a party
affiliation shall be deemed to have chosen the "No Party Preference"
option unless the voter files a new affidavit of registration
disclosing a different political party preference.
  SEC. 81.  Section 3103.5 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   3103.5.  (a) A special absentee voter who is temporarily living
outside of the territorial limits of the United States or the

                   OATH OF VOTER
I,_______, acknowledge that by returning my voted

voted ballot to maintain
its secrecy at the outset of the tabulation
process and thereafter.

   (c) Upon receipt of a ballot returned by facsimile transmission,
the elections official shall determine the voter's eligibility to
vote by comparing the signature on the return information with the

forth in this code.
   (d) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), a special absentee voter who
is permitted to return his or her ballot by facsimile transmission

ballot to be received before the close of polls on election day.

  SEC. 83.  Section 7110 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   7110.  (a) Notwithstanding Section 8148, if the Democratic

Secretary of State to deliver certificates of nomination to local
elections officials pursuant to Section 8148, the Chairperson of the
Democratic State Central Committee shall do one of the following:
   (1) Notify the Secretary of State of the apparent nomination of
the Democratic candidates for President and Vice President of the
United States not less than 78 days prior to the election, if all of
the following conditions apply:
   (A) A candidate for President has attained a sufficient number of
delegate votes to ensure his or her nomination at the Democratic
National Convention.
   (B) The candidate described in subparagraph (A) has identified a
person who will be nominated to run for the office of Vice President.

   (C) The Democratic National Convention is likely to nominate the
person who is the choice of the candidate for President in the Vice
Presidential nomination.
   (2) Notify the Secretary of State of the apparent nomination of
the Democratic candidates for President and Vice President of the
United States as soon as each of these apparent nominations become
known but not less than 61 days prior to the election, if all of the
following conditions
apply:
   (A) A candidate for President has attained a sufficient number of
delegate votes to ensure his or her nomination at the Democratic
National Convention.
   (B) The candidate described in subparagraph (A) has identified a
person who will be nominated to run for the office of Vice President.

   (C) The Democratic National Convention is likely to nominate the
person who is the choice of the candidate for President in the Vice
Presidential nomination.
   (b) The Secretary of State shall prepare the certificates of
nomination required in Section 8148 to include the names of the
Democratic candidates for President and Vice President as notified by
the Chairperson of the Democratic State Central Committee.
   (c) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1,
2013, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted
statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2013, deletes or extends
that date.
  SEC. 84.  Section 8002.5 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   8002.5.  (a) A candidate for a voter-nominated office may indicate
his or her party preference, or lack of party preference, as
disclosed upon the candidate's most recent statement of registration,
upon his or her declaration of candidacy. If a candidate indicates
his or her party preference on his or her declaration of candidacy,
it shall appear on the primary and general election ballot in
conjunction with his or her name. The candidate's designated party
preference on the ballot shall not be changed between the primary and
general election. A candidate for voter-nominated office may also
choose not to have the party preference disclosed upon the candidate'
s most recent affidavit of registration indicated upon the ballot.
   (b) Regardless of the disclosed party preference of the candidate
or the voter, any qualified voter may vote for any candidate for a
voter-nominated office if the voter is otherwise entitled to vote for
candidates for the office to be filled. Nothing in Section 2151,
3006, 3007.5, 3205, or 13102 shall be construed to limit the ability
of a voter to cast a primary election ballot for any candidate for a
voter-nominated office, regardless of the party preference, or lack
of party preference, designated by the candidate for inclusion upon
the ballot pursuant to this section, provided that the voter is
otherwise qualified to cast a ballot for the office at issue.
   (c) A candidate designating a party preference pursuant to
subdivision (a) shall not be deemed to be the official nominee of the
party designated as preferred by the candidate. A candidate's
designation of party preference shall not be construed as an
endorsement of that candidate by the party designated. The party
preference designated by the candidate is shown for the information
of the voters only and may in no way limit the options available to
voters.
   (d) All references to party preference or affiliation shall be
omitted from all forms required to be filed by a voter-nominated
candidate pursuant to this division in the same manner that such
references are omitted from forms required to be filed by nonpartisan
candidates pursuant to Section 8002, except that the declaration of
candidacy required by Section 8040 shall include space for the
candidate to list the party preference disclosed upon the candidate's
most recent affidavit of registration, in accordance with
subdivision (a).
  SEC. 85.  Section 8121 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   8121.  (a) Not less than five days before he or she transmits the
certified list of candidates to the county elections officials, as
provided in Section 8120, the Secretary of State shall notify each
candidate for partisan office and voter-nominated office of the
names, addresses, offices, occupations, and party preferences of all
other persons who have filed for the same office.
   (b) (1) Beginning not less than five days before he or she
transmits the certified list of candidates to the county elections
officials, as required by Section 8120, the Secretary of State shall
post, in a conspicuous place on his or her Internet Web site, the
party preference history of each candidate for voter-nominated office
for the preceding 10 years. The candidates' party preference history
shall be continuously posted until such time as the official canvass
is completed for the general or special election at which a
candidate is elected to the voter-nominated office sought, except
that, in the case of a candidate who participated in the primary
election and who was not nominated to participate in the general
election, the candidate's party preference history need not continue
to be posted following the completion of the official canvass for the
primary election in question.
   (2) For purposes of this subdivision, "party preference history"
also refers to the candidate's history of party registration during
the 10 years preceding the effective date of this section.
   (3) The Secretary of State shall also conspicuously post on the
same Internet Web site as that containing the candidates' party
preference history the notice specified by subdivision (b) of Section
9083.5.
  SEC. 86.  Section 10735 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   10735.  (a) (1) In the case of a special election due to a
catastrophe that causes a vacancy in at least 101 offices of the
United States House of Representatives, the county elections official
shall, to the greatest extent practicable, deliver vote by mail
ballots requested pursuant to Chapter 4 (commencing with Section
3300) of Division 3 not later than 15 days after the date on which
the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives announces
the vacancy.
   (2) In the case of a special election due to a catastrophe that
causes a vacancy in at least one-fourth of the total offices of the
United States House of Representatives representing California but
not a vacancy in at least 101 of the offices of the United States
House of Representatives, the county elections official shall, to the
greatest extent practicable, deliver vote by mail ballots requested
pursuant to Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 3300) of Division 3
not later than 15 days after the date on which the Governor issues
the proclamation calling the election to fill the vacancy.
   (b) A vote by mail ballot cast pursuant to Chapter 4 (commencing
with Section 3300) of Division 3 in a special general election
conducted pursuant to this chapter shall be postmarked not later than
the date of the election, shall be received by the county elections
official not later than 45 days after the date on which the elections
official transmitted the ballot to the voter, and shall comply with
all other relevant requirements of this code.
   (c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any deadlines
relating to canvassing, announcement of election results, or
certification of election results may be extended for a reasonable
period of time to facilitate the tabulating and processing of ballots
cast pursuant to Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 3300) of
Division 3. An extension of a deadline pursuant to this section must
be authorized by the Secretary of State.
  SEC. 87.  Section 12108 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   12108.  In any case where this chapter requires the posting or
distribution of a list of the names of precinct board members, or a
portion of the list, the officers charged with the duty of posting
shall ascertain the name of the political party, if any, for which
each precinct board member has expressed a preference, as shown in
the affidavit of registration of that person. When the list is posted
or distributed, there shall be printed the name of the board member'
s party preference or an abbreviation of the name to the right of the
name, or immediately below the name, of each precinct board member.
If a precinct board member has not expressed a preference for a
political party, the words "No Party Preference" shall be printed in
place of the party name.
  SEC. 88.  Section 13207 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   13207.  (a) There shall be printed on the ballot in parallel
columns all of the following:
   (1) The respective offices.
   (2) The names of candidates with sufficient blank spaces to allow
the voters to write in names not printed on the ballot.
   (3) Whatever measures have been submitted to the voters.
   (b) In the case of a ballot which is intended for use in a party
primary and which carries both partisan offices, voter-nominated
offices, and nonpartisan offices, a vertical solid black line shall
divide the columns containing partisan offices, on the left, from the
columns containing nonpartisan offices and voter-nominated offices,
on the right.
   (c) The standard width of columns containing partisan offices,
nonpartisan offices, and voter-nominated offices, shall be three
inches, but an elections official may vary the width of these columns
up to 10 percent more or less than the three-inch standard. However,
the column containing presidential and vice presidential candidates
may be as wide as four inches.
   (d) Any measures that are to be submitted to the voters shall be
printed in one or more parallel columns to the right of the columns
containing the names of candidates and shall be of sufficient width
to contain the title and summary of each measure. To the right of
each title and summary shall be printed, on separate lines, the words
"Yes" and "No."
  SEC. 89.  Section 13208 of the Elections Code is amended to read:
   13208.  (a) In the right-hand margin of each column light vertical
lines shall be printed in such a way as to create a voting square
after the name of each candidate for partisan office, voter-nominated
office, nonpartisan office (except for Justice of the Supreme Court
or justice of a court of appeal), or for chairperson of a group of
candidates for delegate to a national convention who express no
preference for a presidential candidate. In the case of Supreme Court
or appellate justices and in the case of measures submitted to the
voters, the lines shall be printed so as to create voting squares to
the right of the words "Yes" and "No." The voting squares shall be
used by the voters to express their choices as provided for in the
instruction to voters.
   (b) The standard voting square shall be at least three-eighths of
an inch square but may be up to one-half inch square. Voting squares
for measures may be as tall as is required by the space occupied by
the title and summary.
  SEC. 90.  Section 1390 of the Evidence Code is amended to read:
   1390.  (a) Evidence of a statement is not made inadmissible by the
hearsay rule if the statement is offered against a party that has
engaged, or aided and abetted, in the wrongdoing that was intended
to, and did, procure the unavailability of the declarant as a
witness.
   (b) (1) The party seeking to introduce a statement pursuant to
subdivision (a) shall establish, by a preponderance of the evidence,
that the elements of subdivision (a) have been met at a foundational
hearing.
   (2) The hearsay evidence that is the subject of the foundational
hearing is admissible at the foundational hearing. However, a finding
that the elements of subdivision (a) have been met shall not be
based solely on the unconfronted hearsay statement of the unavailable
declarant, and shall be supported by independent corroborative
evidence.
   (3) The foundational hearing shall be conducted outside the
presence of the jury. However, if the hearing is conducted after a
jury trial has begun, the judge presiding at the hearing may consider
evidence already presented to the jury in deciding whether the
elements of subdivision (a) have been met.
   (4) In deciding whether or not to admit the statement, the judge
may take into account whether it is trustworthy and reliable.
   (c) This section shall apply to any civil, criminal, or juvenile
case or proceeding initiated or pending as of January 1, 2011.
   (d) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1,
2016, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted
statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2016, deletes or extends
that date. If this section is repealed, the fact that it is repealed,
should it occur, shall not be deemed to give rise to any ground for
an appeal or a postverdict challenge based on its use in a criminal
or juvenile case or proceeding before January 1, 2016.
  SEC. 91.  Section 4326 of the Family Code is amended to read:
   4326.  (a) Except as provided in subdivision (d), in a proceeding
in which a spousal support order exists or in which the court has
retained jurisdiction over a spousal support order, if a companion
child support order is in effect, the termination of child support
pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 3901 constitutes a change of
circumstances that may be the basis for a request by either party for
modification of spousal support.
   (b) A motion to modify spousal support based on the change of
circumstances described in subdivision (a) shall be filed by either
party no later than six months from the date the child support order
terminates.
   (c) If a motion to modify a spousal support order pursuant to
subdivision (a) is filed, either party may request the appointment of
a vocational training counselor pursuant to Section 4331.
   (d) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), termination of the child
support order does not constitute a change of circumstances under
subdivision (a) in any of the following circumstances:
   (1) The child and spousal support orders are the result of a
marital settlement agreement or judgment and the marital settlement
agreement or judgment contains a provision regarding what is to occur
when the child support order terminates.
   (2) The child and spousal support orders are the result of a
marital settlement agreement or judgment, which provides that the
spousal support order is nonmodifiable or that spousal support is
waived and the court's jurisdiction over spousal support has been
terminated.
   (3) The court's jurisdiction over spousal support was previously
terminated.
   (e) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1,
2014, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted
statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2014, deletes or extends
that date.
  SEC. 92.  Section 5616 of the Family Code is amended to read:
   5616.  (a) Every court order for child support issued on or after
January 1, 2010, and every child support agreement providing for the
payment of child support approved by a court on or after January 1,
2010, shall include a separate money judgment owed by the child
support obligor to pay a fee not to exceed 33 and 1/3 percent of the
total amount in arrears, and not to exceed 50 percent of the fee as
charged by a private child support collector pursuant to a contract
complying with this chapter and any other child support collections
costs expressly permitted by the child support order for the
collection efforts undertaken by the private child support collector.
The money judgment shall be in favor of the private child support
collector and the child support obligee, jointly, but shall not
constitute a private child support collector lien on real property
unless an abstract of judgment is recorded pursuant to subdivision
(d). Except as provided in subdivision (c), the money judgment may be
enforced by the private child support collector by any means
available to the obligee for the enforcement of the child support
order without any additional action or order by the court. Nothing in
this chapter shall be construed to grant the private child support
collector any enforcement remedies beyond those authorized by federal
or state law. Any fee collected from the obligor pursuant to a
contract complying with this chapter, shall not constitute child
support.
   (b) If the child support order makes the obligor responsible for
payment of collection fees and costs, fees that are deducted by a
private child support collector may not be credited against child
support arrearages or interest owing on arrearages or any other money
owed by the obligor to the obligee.
   (c) If the order for child support requires payment of collection
fees and costs by the obligor, then not later than five days after
the date that the private child support collector makes its first
collection, written notice shall be provided to the obligor of (1)
the amount of arrearages subject to collection, (2) the amount of the
collection that shall be applied to the arrearage, and (3) the
amount of the collection that shall be applied to the fees and costs
of collection. The notice shall provide that, in addition to any
other procedures available, the obligor has 30 days to file a motion
to contest the amount of collection fees and costs assessed against
the obligor.
   (d) Any fees or monetary obligations resulting from the contract
between an obligee parent and a private child support collector, or
moneys owed to a private child support collector by the obligor
parent or obligee parent as a result of the private child support
collector's efforts, does not create a lien on real property, unless
an abstract of judgment is obtained from the court and recorded by
the private child support collector against the real property in the
county in which it is located, nor shall that amount be added to any
existing lien created by a recorded abstract of support or be added
to an obligation on any abstract of judgment. A private child support
collector lien shall have the force, effect, and priority of a
judgment lien.
   (e) An assignment to a private child support collector is a
voluntary assignment for the purpose of collecting the domestic
support obligation as defined in Section 101 of Title 11 of the
United States Bankruptcy Code (11 U.S.C. Sec. 101 (14 A)).
  SEC. 93.  Section 6228 of the Family Code is amended to read:
   6228.  (a) State and local law enforcement agencies shall provide,
without charging a fee, one copy of all domestic violence incident
report face sheets, one copy of all domestic violence incident

   (b) A copy of a domestic violence incident report face sheet shall
be made available during regular business hours to a victim of
domestic violence or his or her representative no later than 48 hours
after being requested by the victim or his or her representative,
unless the state or local law enforcement agency informs the victim
or his or her representative of the reasons why, for good cause, the
domestic violence incident report face sheet is not available, in
which case the domestic violence incident report face sheet shall be
made available to the victim or his or her representative no later
than five working days after the request is made.
   (c) A copy of the domestic violence incident report shall be made
available during regular business hours to a victim of domestic
violence or his or her representative no later than five working days
after being requested by a victim or his or her representative,
unless the state or local law enforcement agency informs the victim
or his or her representative of the reasons why, for good cause, the
domestic violence incident report is not available, in which case the
domestic violence incident report shall be made available to the
victim or his or her representative no later than 10 working days
after the request is made.
   (d) Any person requesting copies under this section shall present
state or local law enforcement with his or her identification, such
as a current, valid driver's license, a state-issued identification
card, or a passport and, if the person is a representative of the
victim and the victim is deceased, a certified copy of the death
certificate or other satisfactory evidence of the death of the victim
at the time a request is made.
   (e) This section shall apply to requests for face sheets or
reports made within five years from the date of completion of the
domestic violence incident report.
   (f) This section shall be known and may be cited as the Access to
Domestic Violence Reports Act of 1999.
   (g) (1) For purposes of this section, if the victim is deceased, a

its response. The statement shall contain the following:
   (i) A brief statement of the facts that give rise to the hearing.
   (ii) A statement of the issues to be considered at the hearing
including relevant statutes and rules. If the statement includes
issues not raised in the proof of loss claim or considered by
respondent in its decision, respondent may move for abatement of the
proceedings for consideration of those issues by respondent. The
administrative law judge may abate the proceedings for a period not
to exceed 60 days from the issuance of the order to abate. The
administrative law judge may extend the time period for good cause
upon motion by respondent or by stipulation of the parties. If
respondent has not issued a revised decision within the period of

trust obligations that has been denied by respondent, complainant
shall bear the burden of establishing by a preponderance of the
evidence that a loss as defined in Section 17304 has occurred and
that respondent is required to pay the claim in accordance with this
chapter. Each legal issue shall be adjudicated in the proposed
decision and the commissioner's decision, except for any issue either
withdrawn or waived by complainant or respondent, upon the
submission of the case after hearing.
   (7) Any party may move for a judgment on the pleadings or summary
judgment, as a dispositive motion, pursuant to the Rules of Procedure
of the Office of Administrative Hearings. The evidence in support of
and standards for deciding the motions shall be as set forth in the
Code of Civil Procedure. If the administrative law judge denies the
motion, the matter shall be heard on the merits by the administrative
law judge. If the administrative law judge grants the motion, the
order shall be in the form of a proposed decision to the commissioner
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 11517 of the Government Code.

   (8) Nothing in this section shall be construed to require the
losing party to pay the other party's costs and expenses, including
attorney's fees.
   (9) If the statement of issues is abated and respondent issues a
revised decision, the parties may amend their pleadings within a
reasonable period of time, as ordered by the administrative law
judge.
   (c) (1) If a request for hearing includes a claim for loss of
trust obligations that has been denied by Fidelity Corporation and
the claim involves the factors described in paragraph (3), the
commissioner, upon the request of Fidelity Corporation and as
provided herein, shall abstain from proceeding with a hearing. The
matter may be adjudicated in a court of competent jurisdiction upon
the filing of an action by the member or successor in interest.
Fidelity Corporation shall notify the commissioner, in writing, of
the grounds for abstention of jurisdiction within five days of the
filing of the request for a hearing by the member or successor in

jurisdiction, the hearing shall be conducted in accordance with
subdivision (b), except that compliance by the commissioner with
paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) shall be within five days of the

transaction in which an officer, director, trustee, stockholder,
manager, or employee of the member was a principal to the
transaction.
   (B) The claim involves (i) the need to determine conflicting
claims or disputes to real property and (ii) there is a potential for
double recovery by any principal to an escrow.

will cause some escrows to have preferable or favorable treatment
over the other escrows held by the member or successor in interest.

by a borrower must be knowing, voluntary, and in writing, and
expressly not made a condition of doing business with the licensee.
Any such waiver that is required as a condition of doing business
with the licensee shall be presumed involuntary, unconscionable,
against public policy, and unenforceable. The licensee has the burden
of proving that a waiver of any rights, penalties, forums, or
procedures was knowing, voluntary, and not made a condition of the

at a time when, lifeguards are not provided and reasonable warning
thereof has been given, or the injured party should reasonably have
known that there was no lifeguard provided at the time.

injury arose.
   (D) Damage or injury suffered in any case where the public entity
or employee recklessly or with gross negligence promoted the
participation in or observance of a hazardous recreational activity.

employee that is the proximate cause of the injury.
   (2) Nothing in this subdivision creates a duty of care or basis of
liability for personal injury or damage to personal property.

entity, whether or not the person or organization has a contractual
relationship with the public entity to use the public property, for

of a hazardous recreational activity on public property by the
concessionaire, person, or organization.

proposals and shall describe the criteria and methodology in the
design-build solicitation package. Award shall be made to the
design-build entity whose proposal is judged as providing the best
value in meeting the interests of the Department of General Services
or the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and meeting the
objectives of the project. A project with an approved budget of ten
million dollars ($10,000,000) or more may be awarded pursuant to this
clause.
   (ii) A design-build competition based upon performance and other
criteria set forth by the Department of General Services or the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation in the design-build
solicitation package. Criteria used in this evaluation of proposals
may include, but need not be limited to, items such as proposed
design approach, life-cycle costs, project features, and functions.
However, any criteria and methods used to evaluate proposals shall be
limited to those contained in the design-build solicitation package.
Award shall be made to the design-build entity whose proposal is
judged as providing the best value, for the lowest price, meeting the
interests of the Department of General Services or the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation and meeting the objectives of the
project. A project with an approved budget of ten million dollars
($10,000,000) or more may be awarded pursuant to this clause.
   (iii) A design-build competition based upon program requirements
and a detailed scope of work, including any performance criteria and
concept drawings set forth by the Department of General Services or
the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation in the design-build
solicitation package. Award shall be made on the basis of the lowest
responsible bid. A project with an approved budget of two hundred
fifty thousand dollars ($250,000) or more may be awarded pursuant to
this clause.
   (4) For purposes of this subdivision, the following definitions
shall apply:
   (A) "Best interest of the state" means a design-build process that
is projected by the Director of General Services or the Secretary of
the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to reduce the
project delivery schedule and total cost of a project while
maintaining a high level of quality workmanship and materials, when
compared to the traditional design-bid-build process.
   (B) "Best value" means a value determined by objective criteria
that may include, but are not limited to, price, features, functions,
life-cycle costs, experience, and other criteria deemed appropriate
by the Department of General Services or the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation.
   (d) The Legislature recognizes that the design-build entity is
charged with performing both design and construction. Because a
design-build contract may be awarded prior to the completion of the
design, it is often impracticable for the design-build entity to list
all subcontractors at the time of the award. As a result, the
subcontractor listing requirements contained in Chapter 4 (commencing
with Section 4100) of Part 1 of Division 2 of the Public Contract
Code can create a conflict with the implementation of the
design-build process by requiring all subcontractors to be listed at
a time when a sufficient set of plans shall not be available. It is
the intent of the Legislature to establish a clear process for the
selection and award of subcontracts entered into pursuant to this
section in a manner that retains protection for subcontractors while
enabling design-build projects to be administered in an efficient
fashion. Therefore, all of the following requirements shall apply to
subcontractors, licensed pursuant to Chapter 9 (commencing with
Section 7000) of Division 3 of the Business and Professions Code,
that are employed on design-build projects undertaken pursuant to
this section:
   (1) The Department of General Services and the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation, in each design-build solicitation
package, may identify types of subcontractors, by subcontractor
license classification, that will be listed by the design-build
entity at the time of the bid. In selecting the subcontractors that
will be listed by the design-build entity, the Department of General
Services and the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation shall
limit the identification to only those license classifications deemed
essential for proper completion of the project. In no event,
however, may the Department of General Services or the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation specify more than five licensed
subcontractor classifications. In addition, at its discretion, the
design-build entity may list an additional two subcontractors,
identified by subcontractor license classification, that will perform
design or construction work, or both, on the project. In no event
shall the design-build entity list at the time of bid a total number
of subcontractors that will perform design or construction work, or
both, in a total of more than seven subcontractor license
classifications on a project. All subcontractors that are listed at
the time of bid shall be afforded all of the protection contained in
Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 4100) of Part 1 of Division 2 of
the Public Contract Code. All subcontracts that were not listed by
the design-build entity at the time of bid shall be awarded in
accordance with paragraph (2).
   (2) All subcontracts that were not to be performed by the
design-build entity in accordance with paragraph (1) shall be
competitively bid and awarded by the design-build entity, in
accordance with the design-build process set forth by the Department
of General Services or the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation in the design-build solicitation package. The
design-build entity shall do all of the following:
   (A) Provide public notice of the availability of work to be
subcontracted in accordance with Section 10140 of the Public Contract
Code.
   (B) Provide a fixed date and time on which the subcontracted work
will be awarded in accordance with Section 10141 of the Public
Contract Code.
   (C) As authorized by the Department of General Services or the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, establish reasonable
prequalification criteria and standards, limited in scope to those
detailed in paragraph (2) of subdivision (c).
   (D) Provide that the subcontracted work shall be awarded to the
lowest responsible bidder.
   (e) This section shall not be construed and is not intended to
extend or limit the authority specified in Section 19130.
   (f) Any design-build entity that is selected to design and
construct a project pursuant to this section shall possess or obtain
sufficient bonding consistent with applicable provisions of the
Public Contract Code. Nothing in this section shall prohibit a
general or engineering contractor from being designated the lead
entity on a design-build entity for the purposes of purchasing
necessary bonding to cover the activities of the design-build entity.

   (g) Any payment or performance bond written for the purposes of
this section shall use a bond form developed by the Department of
General Services or the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
In developing the bond form, the Department of General Services or
the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation shall consult with
the surety industry to achieve a bond form that is consistent with
surety industry standards, while protecting the interests of the
state.
   (h) The Department of General Services or the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation, as appropriate, shall each submit to
the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, before January 1, 2014, a
report containing a description of each public works project procured
by that department through the design-build process described in
this section that is completed after January 1, 2009, and before
December 1, 2013. The report shall include, but shall not be limited
to, all of the following information:
   (1) The type of project.
   (2) The gross square footage of the project.
   (3) The design-build entity that was awarded the project.
   (4) The estimated and actual project costs.
   (5) An assessment of the prequalification process and criteria.
   (6) An assessment of the effect of any retention on the project
made under the law.
   (7) A description of the method used to award the contract. If the
best value method was used, the report shall describe the factors
used to evaluate the bid, including the weighting of each factor and
an assessment of the effectiveness of the methodology.
   (i) The authority provided under this section shall be in addition
to the authority provided to the Department of General Services
pursuant to Section 4 of Chapter 252 of the Statutes of 1998, as
amended by Section 3 of Chapter 154 of the Statutes of 2007. The
authority under this section and Section 70391.7 shall apply to a
total of not more than five state office facilities, prison
facilities, or court facilities, which shall be determined pursuant
to this subdivision.
   (1) In order to enter into a contract utilizing the procurement
method authorized under this section, the Director of General
Services or the Secretary of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation shall submit a request to the Department of Finance.
   (2) The Department of Finance shall make a determination whether
to approve or deny a request made pursuant to paragraph (1) if the
design-build project requested will not exceed the five facilities
maximum set forth in this section and Section 70391.7.
   (3) After receiving notification that the Department of Finance
has approved the request and that the Legislature has appropriated
funds for a specific project, the director or secretary may enter
into a design-build contract under this section.
   (j) Nothing in this section is intended to affect, expand, alter,
or limit any rights or remedies otherwise available under the law.
  SEC. 123.  Section 15439 of the Government Code is amended to read:

   15439.  (a) The California Health Facilities Authority Fund is
continued in existence in the State Treasury as the California Health
Facilities Financing Authority Fund. All moneys in the fund are
hereby continuously appropriated to the authority for carrying out
the purposes of this division. The authority may pledge any or all of
the moneys in the fund as security for payment of the principal of,
and interest on, any particular issuance of bonds issued pursuant to
this part, or any particular secured or unsecured loan made pursuant
to subdivision (i), (j), or (s) of Section 15438, or for a grant
awarded pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 15438.7, and, for that
purpose or as necessary or convenient to the accomplishment of any
other purpose of the authority, may divide the fund into separate
accounts. All moneys accruing to the authority pursuant to this part
from whatever source shall be deposited in the fund.
   (b) Subject to the priorities that may be created by the pledge of
particular moneys in the fund to secure any issuance of bonds of the
authority, and subject further to the cost of loans provided by the
authority pursuant to subdivision (i), (j), or (s) of Section 15438
and to the cost of grants provided by the authority pursuant to
Section 15438.7, and subject further to any reasonable costs which
may be incurred by the authority in administering the program
authorized by this division, all moneys in the fund derived from any
source shall be held in trust for the security and payment of bonds
of the authority and shall not be used or pledged for any other
purpose so long as the bonds are outstanding and unpaid. However,
nothing in this section shall limit the power of the authority to
make loans with the proceeds of bonds in accordance with the terms of
the resolution authorizing the same.
   (c) Pursuant to any agreements with the holders of particular
bonds pledging any particular assets, revenues, or moneys, the
authority may create separate accounts in the fund to manage assets,
revenues, or moneys in the manner set forth in the agreements.
   (d) The authority may, from time to time, direct the State
Treasurer to invest moneys in the fund that are not required for its
current needs, including proceeds from the sale of any bonds, in the
eligible securities specified in Section 16430 as the agency shall
designate. The authority may direct the State Treasurer to deposit
moneys in interest-bearing accounts in state or national banks or
other financial institutions having principal offices in this state.
The authority may alternatively require the transfer of moneys in the
fund to the Surplus Money Investment Fund for investment pursuant to
Article 4 (commencing with Section 16470) of Chapter 3 of Part 2 of
Division 4. All interest or other increment resulting from an
investment or deposit shall be deposited in the fund, notwithstanding
Section 16305.7. Moneys in the fund shall not be subject to transfer
to any other fund pursuant to any provision of Part 2 (commencing
with Section 16300) of Division 4, excepting the Surplus Money
Investment Fund.
   (e) All moneys accruing to the authority from whatever source
shall be deposited in the fund.

   (c) In no event shall the total pension for all service under this
section exceed an amount that, when added to the service retirement
annuity related to that service, equals 80 percent of final
compensation. If the pension relates to service to more than one
employer and would otherwise exceed that maximum, the pension payable
with respect to each employer shall be reduced in the same
proportion as the allowance based on service to that employer bears
to the total allowance computed as though there were no limit, so
that the total of those pensions shall equal the maximum. Where a
state member has service under this section with both state and local
agency employers, the higher maximum shall apply and the additional
benefit shall be funded by increasing the member's pension payable
with respect to the employer for whom the member performed the
service subject to the higher maximum.
   (d) The Legislature reserves, with respect to any member subject
to this section, the right to provide for the adjustment of
industrial disability retirement allowances because of earnings of a
retired person and modification of the conditions and qualifications
required for retirement for disability as it may find appropriate
because of the earlier age of service retirement made possible by the
benefits under this section.
   (e) This section shall apply to a state safety member who is
employed by the state for the first time and becomes a state safety
member of the system on or after the first day of the pay period
following the effective date of this section, and is represented by
State Bargaining Unit 12, 16, 18, or 19. With respect to related
state safety members in managerial, supervisory, or confidential
positions and officers or employees of the executive branch of state
government who are not members of the civil service, the Director of
the Department of Personnel Administration may exercise his or her
discretion whether to approve their status in writing to the board.
   (f) This section does not apply to:
   (1) Former state employees previously employed before the first
day of the pay period following the effective date of this
subdivision, who return to state employment on or after the first day
of the pay period following the effective date of this subdivision.
   (2) State employees hired prior to the first day of the pay period
following the effective date of this subdivision, who were subject
to Section 20281.5 during the first 24 months of state employment.
   (3) State employees hired prior to the first day of the pay period
following the effective date of this subdivision, who become subject
to representation by State Bargaining Unit 12, 16, 18, or 19 on or
after the first day of the pay period following the effective date of
this subdivision.
   (4) State employees on an approved leave of absence employed
before the first day of the pay period following the effective date
of this subdivision, who return to active employment on or after the
first day of the pay period following the effective date of this
subdivision.

Section 21 of Chapter 163 of the Statutes of 2010, is amended to
read:
   21369.2.  (a) The combined prior and current service pension for a
state safety member, upon retirement after attaining the age of 55
years, is a pension derived from contributions of an employer
sufficient, when added to that portion of the service retirement
annuity that is derived from the accumulated normal contributions of
the member at the date of his or her retirement, to equal
one-fiftieth of his or her final compensation multiplied by the
number of years of state safety service, that is credited to him or
her as a state safety member subject to this section at retirement.
   (b) Upon retirement for service prior to attaining the age of 55
years, the percentage of final compensation payable for each year of
credited service that is subject to this section shall be the product
of 2 percent multiplied by the factor set forth in the following
table for his or her actual age at retirement:
   Age at

section exceed an amount that, when added to the service retirement
annuity related to that service, equals 80 percent of final
compensation. If the pension relates to service to more than one
employer and would otherwise exceed that maximum, the pension payable
with respect to each employer shall be reduced in the same

with respect to the employer for whom the member performed the
service subject to the higher maximum.
   (d) The Legislature reserves, with respect to any member subject

retired person and modification of the conditions and qualifications
required for retirement for disability as it may find appropriate
because of the earlier age of service retirement made possible by the

   (e) This section shall apply to a state safety member who is
employed by the state for the first time and becomes a state safety
member of the system on or after the first day of the pay period
following the effective date of this section, and is represented by
State Bargaining Unit 12, 16, 18, or 19. With respect to related
state safety members in managerial, supervisory, or confidential
positions and officers or employees of the executive branch of state
government who are not members of the civil service, the Director of
the Department of Personnel Administration may exercise his or her
discretion whether to approve their status in writing to the board.

22874, a state employee, defined by subdivision (c) of Section 3513,
who is employed by the state for the first time, and who is
represented by State Bargaining Unit 12, who becomes a state member
of the system on or after January 1, 2011, may not receive any
portion of the employer contribution payable for annuitants unless
the person is credited with 15 years of state service at the time of
retirement.
   (b) The percentage of the employer contribution payable for
postretirement health benefits for an employee subject to this
section shall be based on the completed years of credited state

   (c) This section shall apply only to state employees who retire
for service. For purposes of this section, "state service" means
service rendered as an employee of the state or an appointed or
elected officer of the state for compensation. Notwithstanding
Section 22826, for purposes of this section, credited state service
includes service to the state for which the employee, pursuant to
Section 20281.5, did not receive credit.
   (d) This section does not apply to:
   (1) Former state employees previously employed before January 1,
2011, who return to state employment on or after January 1, 2011.
   (2) State employees hired prior to January 1, 2011, who were
subject to Section 20281.5 during the first 24 months of state

represented by a state bargaining unit other than State Bargaining
Unit 12.

to a related state employee who is excepted from the definition of
"state employee" in subdivision (c) of Section 3513, and an officer
or employee of the executive branch of state government who is not a
member of the civil service who met the requirements of this section
when employed by the state for the first time.

notwithstanding any provision of this division or the Recreation and
Park District Law (Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 5780) of
Division 5 of the Public Resources Code), unless the governing body
of the Tahoe Paradise Resort Improvement District files a resolution
of objection with the El Dorado County Local Agency Formation
Commission before the close of the hearing held pursuant to Section

   (b) If the governing body of the Tahoe Paradise Resort Improvement
District files a resolution of objection with the commission before
the close of the hearing held pursuant to Section 56666, the
commission shall disapprove the proposed accelerated reorganization.
   (c) The commission may order any material change to the terms and
conditions of the accelerated reorganization set forth in the

the Tahoe Paradise Resort Improvement District mailed notice of any
change prior to ordering a change. The commission shall not, without
the written consent of the Tahoe Paradise Resort Improvement
District, take any further action on the accelerated reorganization
for 30 days following that mailing.
   (d) A proposal for an accelerated reorganization shall include
proposed terms and conditions that shall include, but are not limited
to, all of the following:
   (1) The proposed recreation and park district is declared to be,
and shall be deemed, a recreation and park district as if the
district had been formed pursuant to the Recreation and Park District
Law (Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 5780) of Division 5 of the
Public Resources Code). The exterior boundary and sphere of influence
of the proposed recreation and park district shall be the exterior

vested with, the same powers, duties, responsibilities, obligations,
liabilities, and jurisdiction of the Tahoe Paradise Resort

   (4) The proposed recreation and park district shall have
ownership, possession, and control of all books, records, papers,
offices, equipment, supplies, moneys, funds, appropriations,

or personal, acquired or constructed by the Tahoe Paradise Resort
Improvement District shall be required by reason of the succession
pursuant to the accelerated reorganization, nor shall any payment for
the proposed recreation and park district's acquisition of the
powers, duties, responsibilities, obligations, liabilities, and
jurisdiction be required by reason of that succession.
   (7) All ordinances, rules, and regulations adopted by the Tahoe
Paradise Resort Improvement District in effect immediately preceding
the effective date of the accelerated reorganization shall remain in
effect and shall be fully enforceable unless amended or repealed by
the proposed recreation and park district, or until they expire by
their own terms. Any statute, law, rule, or regulation in force as of
the effective date of the accelerated reorganization, or that may be
enacted or adopted with reference to the Tahoe Paradise Resort
Improvement District shall mean the proposed recreation and park
district.
   (8) All allocations of shares of property tax revenue pursuant to
Part 0.5 (commencing with Section 50) of the Revenue and Taxation
Code, special taxes, benefit assessments, fees, charges, or any other
impositions of the Tahoe Paradise Resort Improvement District shall

Improvement District shall not abate, but shall continue in the name
of the proposed recreation and park district, and the proposed
recreation and park district shall be substituted for the Tahoe
Paradise Resort Improvement District by the court in which the action
is pending. The substitution shall not in any way affect the rights
of the parties to the action.
   (11) No contract, lease, license, permit, entitlement, bond, or
any other agreement to which the Tahoe Paradise Resort Improvement
District is a party shall be void or voidable by reason of the
enactment of the accelerated reorganization, but shall continue in
effect, with the proposed recreation and park district assuming all
of the rights, obligations, liabilities, and duties of the Tahoe
Paradise Resort Improvement District.
   (12) Any obligations, including, but not limited to, bonds and
other indebtedness, of the Tahoe Paradise Resort Improvement District
shall be the obligations of the proposed recreation and park
district. Any continuing obligations or responsibilities of the Tahoe
Paradise Resort Improvement District for managing and maintaining
bond issuances shall be transferred to the proposed recreation and
park district without impairment to any security contained in the
bond instrument.
   (e) As used in this section, "accelerated reorganization" means a
reorganization that consists solely of the dissolution of the Tahoe
Paradise Resort Improvement District and the formation of a
recreation and park district.
   (f) This section shall remain in effect only until January 2,
2018, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted
statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2018, deletes or extends
that date.
  SEC. 132.  Section 63049.67 of the Government Code is amended to
read:
   63049.67.  (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this
division, a financing of emergency apportionments upon the request of
a school district pursuant to Article 2.7 (commencing with Section
41329.50) of Chapter 3 of Part 24 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the
Education Code, is deemed to be in the public interest and eligible
for financing by the bank. Article 3 (commencing with Section 63040),
Article 4 (commencing with Section 63042), and Article 5 (commencing
with Section 63043) do not apply to the financing provided by the
bank in connection with an emergency apportionment.
   (b) The bank may issue bonds pursuant to Chapter 5 (commencing
with Section 63070) and provide the proceeds to a school district
pursuant to a lease agreement. The proceeds may be used as an
emergency apportionment, to reimburse the interim emergency
apportionment from the General Fund authorized pursuant to
subdivision (b) of Section 41329.52 of the Education Code, or to
refund bonds previously issued under this section. Bond proceeds may
also be used to fund necessary reserves, capitalized interest, credit
enhancement costs, and costs of issuance.
   (c) Bonds issued under this article are not deemed to constitute a
debt or liability of the state or of any political subdivision of
the state, other than a limited obligation of the bank, or a pledge
of the                                           faith and credit of
the state or of any political subdivision. All bonds issued under
this article shall contain on the face of the bonds a statement to
the same effect.
   (d) Any fund or account established in connection with the bonds
shall be established outside of the centralized treasury system.
Notwithstanding any other law, the bank shall select the financing
team and the trustee for the bonds, and the trustee shall be a
corporation or banking association authorized to exercise corporate
trust powers.
   (e) Pursuant to Section 41329.55 of the Education Code, a school
district other than the Compton Community College District shall
instruct the Controller to repay the lease from moneys in the State
School Fund designated for apportionment to the school district.
Pursuant to Section 41329.55, if the school district is the Compton
Community College District, the Controller shall be instructed to
repay the lease from moneys in Section B of the State School Fund.
Any amounts necessary to make this repayment shall be drawn from the
total statewide funding available for community college apportionment
consisting of funds in Section B of the State School Fund.
Thereafter the Controller shall transfer to Section B of the State
School Fund, either in a single or multiple transfers, an amount
equal to the total repayment, which amount shall be transferred from
the amount designated for apportionment to the Compton Community
College District from the State School Fund. If these transfers from
the district prove inadequate to repay any repayments for any reason,
the Compton Community College District is required to use any
revenue sources available to it for transfer and repayment purposes.
   (f) Notwithstanding any other law, as long as any bonds issued
pursuant to this section are outstanding, the following requirements
apply:
   (1) The school district for which the bonds were issued is not
eligible to be a debtor in a case under Chapter 9 of the United
States Bankruptcy Code, as it may be amended from time to time, and
no governmental officer or organization is or may be empowered to
authorize the school district to be a debtor under that chapter.
   (2) It is the intent of the Legislature that the Legislature
should not in the future abolish the Compton Community College
District or take any action that would prevent the Compton Community
College from entering into or performing binding agreements or
invalidate any prior binding agreements of the Compton Community
College District, where invalidation may have a material adverse
effect on the bonds issued pursuant to this section.
   (3) The Compton Community College District shall not be
reorganized or merged with another community college district unless
all of the following apply:
   (A) The successor district becomes by operation of law the owner
of all property previously owned by the Compton Community College
District.
   (B) Any agreement entered into by the Compton Community College
District in connection with bonds issued pursuant to this section are
assumed by the successor district.
   (C) The apportionment authorized by subdivision (e) remains in
effect.
   (D) Receipt by the bank of an opinion of bond counsel that the
bonds issued for the Compton Community College District will remain
tax exempt following the reorganization or merger.
   (g) Nothing in this section limits the authority of the
Legislature to abolish the Compton Community College District when
bonds issued for that district are no longer outstanding. Further,
the Legislature may provide for the redemption or defeasance of the
bonds at any time so that no bonds are outstanding. If the
Legislature provides for the redemption or defeasance of the bonds
issued for the Compton Community College District in order to abolish
that district, it is the intent of the Legislature that the funds
required for the redemption or defeasance should be appropriated from
Section B of the State School Fund.
   (h) The bank may enter into contracts or agreements with banks,
insurers, or other financial institutions or parties that it
determines are necessary or desirable to improve the security and
marketability of, or to manage interest rates or other risks
associated with, the bonds issued pursuant to this section. The bank
may pledge apportionments made by the Controller directly to the bond
trustee pursuant to Section 41329.55 of the Education Code as
security for repayment of any obligation owed to a bank, insurer, or
other financial institution pursuant to this subdivision.
  SEC. 133.  Section 66484 of the Government Code is amended to read:

   66484.  (a) A local ordinance may require the payment of a fee as
a condition of approval of a final map or as a condition of issuing a
building permit for purposes of defraying the actual or estimated
cost of constructing bridges over waterways, railways, freeways, and
canyons, or constructing major thoroughfares. The ordinance may
require payment of fees pursuant to this section if all of the
following requirements are satisfied:
   (1) The ordinance refers to the circulation element of the general
plan and, in the case of bridges, to the transportation or flood
control provisions thereof that identify railways, freeways, streams,
or canyons for which bridge crossings are required on the general
plan or local roads and in the case of major thoroughfares, to the
provisions of the circulation element that identify those major
thoroughfares whose primary purpose is to carry through traffic and
provide a network connecting to the state highway system, if the
circulation element, transportation or flood control provisions have
been adopted by the local agency 30 days prior to the filing of a map
or application for a building permit.
   (2) The ordinance provides that there will be a public hearing
held by the governing body for each area benefited. Notice shall be
given pursuant to Section 65091 and shall include preliminary
information related to the boundaries of the area of benefit,
estimated cost, and the method of fee apportionment. The area of
benefit may include land or improvements in addition to the land or
improvements that are the subject of any map or building permit
application considered at the proceedings.
   (3) The ordinance provides that at the public hearing the
boundaries of the area of benefit, the costs, whether actual or
estimated, and a fair method of allocation of costs to the area of
benefit and fee apportionment are established. The method of fee
apportionment, in the case of major thoroughfares, shall not provide
for higher fees on land that abuts the proposed improvement except
where the abutting property is provided direct usable access to the
major thoroughfare. A description of the boundaries of the area of
benefit, the costs, whether actual or estimated, and the method of
fee apportionment established at the hearing shall be incorporated in
a resolution of the governing body, a certified copy of which shall
be recorded by the governing body conducting the hearing with the
recorder of the county in which the area of benefit is located. The
apportioned fees shall be applicable to all property within the area
of benefit and shall be payable as a condition of approval of a final
map or as a condition of issuing a building permit for the property
or portions of the property. Where the area of benefit includes lands
not subject to the payment of fees pursuant to this section, the
governing agency shall make provision for payment of the share of
improvement costs apportioned to those lands from other sources.
   (4) The ordinance provides that payment of fees shall not be
required unless the major thoroughfares are in addition to, or a
reconstruction of, any existing major thoroughfares serving the area
at the time of the adoption of the boundaries of the area of benefit.

   (5) The ordinance provides that payment of fees shall not be
required unless the planned bridge facility is an original bridge
serving the area or an addition to any existing bridge facility
serving the area at the time of the adoption of the boundaries of the
area of benefit. The fees shall not be expended to reimburse the
cost of existing bridge facility construction.
   (6) The ordinance provides that if, within the time when protests
may be filed under the provisions of the ordinance, there is a
written protest, filed with the clerk of the legislative body, by the
owners of more than one-half of the area of the property to be
benefited by the improvement, and sufficient protests are not
withdrawn so as to reduce the area represented to less than one-half
of that to be benefited, then the proposed proceedings shall be
abandoned, and the legislative body shall not, for one year from the
filing of that written protest, commence or carry on any proceedings
for the same improvement or acquisition under this section.
   (b) Any protest may be withdrawn by the owner protesting, in
writing, at any time prior to the conclusion of a public hearing held
pursuant to the ordinance.
   (c) If any majority protest is directed against only a portion of
the improvement, then all further proceedings under the provisions of
this section to construct that portion of the improvement so
protested against shall be barred for a period of one year, but the
legislative body may commence new proceedings not including any part
of the improvement or acquisition so protested against. Nothing in
this section prohibits a legislative body, within that one-year
period, from commencing and carrying on new proceedings for the
construction of a portion of the improvement so protested against if
it finds, by the affirmative vote of four-fifths of its members, that
the owners of more than one-half of the area of the property to be
benefited are in favor of going forward with that portion of the
improvement or acquisition.
   (d) Nothing in this section precludes the processing and
recordation of maps in accordance with other provisions of this
division if the proceedings are abandoned.
   (e) Fees paid pursuant to an ordinance adopted pursuant to this
section shall be deposited in a planned bridge facility or major
thoroughfare fund. A fund shall be established for each planned
bridge facility project or each planned major thoroughfare project.
If the benefit area is one in which more than one bridge or major
thoroughfare is required to be constructed, a fund may be so
established covering all of the bridge and major thoroughfare
projects in the benefit area. Moneys in the fund shall be expended
solely for the construction or reimbursement for construction of the
improvement or improvements serving the area to be benefited and from
which the fees comprising the fund were collected, or to reimburse
the local agency for the cost of constructing the improvement or

  SEC. 139.  Section 1357.51 of the Health and Safety Code is amended
to read:
   1357.51.  (a)  No plan contract that covers three or more
enrollees shall exclude coverage for any individual on the basis of a
preexisting condition provision for a period greater than six months
following the individual's effective date of coverage. Preexisting
condition provisions contained in plan contracts may relate only to
conditions for which medical advice, diagnosis, care, or treatment,
including use of prescription drugs, was recommended or received from
a licensed health practitioner during the six months immediately
preceding the effective date of coverage.
   (b) No plan contract that covers one or two individuals shall
exclude coverage on the basis of a preexisting condition provision
for a period greater than 12 months following the individual's
effective date of coverage, nor shall the plan limit or exclude
coverage for a specific enrollee by type of illness, treatment,
medical condition, or accident, except for satisfaction of a
preexisting condition clause pursuant to this article. Preexisting
condition provisions contained in plan contracts may relate only to
conditions for which medical advice, diagnosis, care, or treatment,
including use of prescription drugs, was recommended or received from
a licensed health practitioner during the 12 months immediately
preceding the effective date of coverage.
   (c) (1) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), a plan contract for group
coverage shall not impose any preexisting condition provision upon
any child under 19 years of age.
   (2) Notwithstanding subdivision (b), a plan contract for
individual coverage that is not a grandfathered health plan within
the meaning of Section 1251 of the federal Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) shall not impose any preexisting
condition provision upon any child under 19 years of age.
   (d) A plan that does not utilize a preexisting condition provision
may impose a waiting or affiliation period not to exceed 60 days,
before the coverage issued subject to this article shall become
effective. During the waiting or affiliation period, the plan is not
required to provide health care services and no premium shall be
charged to the subscriber or enrollee.
   (e) A plan that does not utilize a preexisting condition provision
in plan contracts that cover one or two individuals may impose a
contract provision excluding coverage for waivered conditions. No
plan may exclude coverage on the basis of a waivered condition for a
period greater than 12 months following the individual's effective
date of coverage. A waivered condition provision contained in plan
contracts may relate only to conditions for which medical advice,
diagnosis, care, or treatment, including use of prescription drugs,
was recommended or received from a licensed health practitioner
during the 12 months immediately preceding the effective date of
coverage.
   (f) In determining whether a preexisting condition provision, a
waivered condition provision, or a waiting or affiliation period
applies to any enrollee, a plan shall credit the time the enrollee
was covered under creditable coverage, provided that the enrollee
becomes eligible for coverage under the succeeding plan contract
within 62 days of termination of prior coverage, exclusive of any
waiting or affiliation period, and applies for coverage under the
succeeding plan within the applicable enrollment period. A plan shall
also credit any time that an eligible employee must wait before
enrolling in the plan, including any postenrollment or
employer-imposed waiting or affiliation period.
   However, if a person's employment has ended, the availability of
health coverage offered through employment or sponsored by an
employer has terminated, or an employer's contribution toward health
coverage has terminated, a plan shall credit the time the person was
covered under creditable coverage if the person becomes eligible for
health coverage offered through employment or sponsored by an
employer within 180 days, exclusive of any waiting or affiliation
period, and applies for coverage under the succeeding plan contract
within the applicable enrollment period.
   (g) No plan shall exclude late enrollees from coverage for more
than 12 months from the date of the late enrollee's application for
coverage. No plan shall require any premium or other periodic charge
to be paid by or on behalf of a late enrollee during the period of
exclusion from coverage permitted by this subdivision.
   (h) A health care service plan issuing group coverage may not
impose a preexisting condition exclusion upon a condition relating to
benefits for pregnancy or maternity care.
   (i) An individual's period of creditable coverage shall be
certified pursuant to subsection (e) of Section 2701 of Title XXVII
of the federal Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. Sec. 300gg(e)).
  SEC. 140.  Section 1365 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to

notification or, if longer, the period of time required for notice
and any other requirements pursuant to Section 2703, 2712, or 2742 of

300gg-12, and 300gg-42) and any subsequent rules or regulations has
elapsed.
   (B) Pursuant to subparagraph (A), a health care service plan shall

employer's, or contractholder's health care service plan contract
during the period described in subparagraph (A).
   (2) The plan demonstrates fraud or an intentional
misrepresentation of material fact under the terms of the health care
service plan contract by the individual contractholder or employer.
   (3) In the case of an individual health care service plan
contract, the individual subscriber no longer resides, lives, or
works in the plan's service area, but only if the coverage is
terminated uniformly without regard to any health status-related
factor of covered individuals.

violation of a material contract provision relating to employer
contribution or group participation rates by the contractholder or

however, that the following conditions are satisfied:
   (A) Notice of the decision to cease new or existing health benefit
plans in the state is provided to the director, the individual or
group contractholder or employer, and the enrollees covered under
those contracts, at least 180 days prior to discontinuation of those
contracts.
   (B) Health benefit plans shall not be canceled for 180 days after
the date of the notice required under subparagraph (A) and, for that
business of a plan that remains in force, any plan that ceases to
offer for sale new health benefit plans shall continue to be governed
by this section with respect to business conducted under this
section.
   (C) Except as authorized under subdivision (b) of Section 1357.09
and Section 1357.10, a plan that ceases to write new health benefit
plans in the individual or group market, or all markets, in this
state shall be prohibited from offering for sale health benefit plans
in that market or markets in this state for a period of five years
from the date of the discontinuation of the last coverage not so
renewed.
   (6) If the plan withdraws a health benefit plan from the market,
provided that all of the following conditions are satisfied:
   (A) The plan notifies all affected subscribers, contractholders,
employers, and enrollees and the director at least 90 days prior to
the discontinuation of the plan.
   (B) The plan makes available to the individual or group
contractholder or employer all health benefit plans that it makes
available to new individual or group business, respectively.
   (C) In exercising the option to discontinue a health benefit plan
under this paragraph and in offering the option of coverage under
subparagraph (B), the plan acts uniformly without regard to the
claims experience of the individual or contractholder or employer, or
any health status-related factor relating to enrollees or potential
enrollees.
   (D) For small employer health care service plan contracts offered
under Article 3.1 (commencing with Section 1357), the premium for the
new plan contract complies with the renewal increase requirements
set forth in Section 1357.12. This subparagraph shall not apply after
December 31, 2013.
   (7) In the case of a group health benefit plan, if an individual
or employer ceases to be a member of a guaranteed association, as
defined in subdivision (n) of Section 1357, but only if that coverage
is terminated under this paragraph uniformly without regard to any
health status-related factor relating to any enrollee.
   (b) (1) An enrollee or subscriber who alleges that an enrollment
or subscription has been or will be improperly canceled, rescinded,
or not renewed may request a review by the director pursuant to
Section 1368.
   (2) If the director determines that a proper complaint exists, the
director shall notify the plan and the enrollee or subscriber who
requested the review.
   (3) If, after review, the director determines that the
cancellation, rescission, or failure to renew is contrary to existing
law, the director shall order the plan to reinstate the enrollee or
subscriber. Within 15 days after receipt of that order, the health
care service plan shall request a hearing or reinstate the enrollee
or subscriber.
   (4) If an enrollee or subscriber requests a review of the health
care service plan's determination to cancel or rescind or failure to
renew the enrollee's or subscriber's health care service plan
contract pursuant to this section, the health care service plan shall
continue to provide coverage to the enrollee or subscriber under the
terms of the contract until a final determination of the enrollee's
or subscriber's request for review has been made by the director.
This paragraph shall not apply if the health care service plan
cancels or does not renew the enrollee's or subscriber's health care
service plan contract for nonpayment of premiums pursuant to
paragraph (1) of subdivision (a).
   (5) A reinstatement pursuant to this subdivision shall be
retroactive to the time of cancellation, rescission, or failure to
renew and the plan shall be liable for the expenses incurred by the
subscriber or enrollee for covered health care services from the date
of cancellation, rescission, or nonrenewal to and including the date
of reinstatement. The health care service plan shall reimburse the
enrollee or subscriber for any expenses incurred pursuant to this
paragraph within 30 days of receipt of the completed claim.
   (c) This section shall not abrogate any preexisting contracts
entered into prior to the effective date of this chapter between a
subscriber or enrollee and a health care service plan or a
specialized health care service plan, including, but not limited to,
the financial liability of the plan, except that each plan shall, if
directed to do so by the director, exercise its authority, if any,
under those preexisting contracts to conform them to existing law.

   (e) On or before July 1, 2011, the director may issue guidance to
health care service plans regarding compliance with this section and
that guidance shall not be subject to the Administrative Procedure
Act (Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of
Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code). Any guidance issued
pursuant to this subdivision shall only be effective through December

amended to read:
   1797.172.  (a) The authority shall develop and, after approval by
the commission pursuant to Section 1799.50, adopt minimum standards
for the training and scope of practice for EMT-P.
   (b) The approval of the director, in consultation with a committee
of local EMS medical directors named by the EMS Medical Directors
Association of California, is required prior to implementation of any
addition to a local optional scope of practice for EMT-Ps proposed
by the medical director of a local EMS agency.
   (c) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the authority
shall be the agency solely responsible for licensure and licensure
renewal of EMT-Ps who meet the standards and are not precluded from
licensure because of any of the reasons listed in subdivision (d) of
Section 1798.200. Each application for licensure or licensure renewal
shall require the applicant's social security number in order to
establish the identity of the applicant. The information obtained as
a result of a state and federal level criminal offender record
information search shall be used in accordance with Section 11105 of
the Penal Code, and to determine whether the applicant is subject to
denial of licensure or licensure renewal pursuant to this division.
Submission of fingerprint images to the Department of Justice may not
be required for licensure renewal upon determination by the
authority that fingerprint images have previously been submitted to
the Department of Justice during initial licensure, or a previous
licensure renewal, provided that the license has not lapsed and the
applicant has resided continuously in the state since the initial
licensure.
   (d) The authority shall charge fees for the licensure and
licensure renewal of EMT-Ps in an amount sufficient to support the
authority's licensure program at a level that ensures the
qualifications of the individuals licensed to provide quality care.

not exceed one hundred twenty-five dollars ($125) until the adoption
of regulations that specify a different amount that does not exceed
the authority's EMT-P licensure, license renewal, and enforcement
programs. The authority shall annually evaluate fees to determine if
the fee is sufficient to fund the actual costs of the authority's
licensure, licensure renewal, and enforcement programs. If the
evaluation shows that the fees are excessive or are insufficient to
fund the actual costs of the authority's EMT-P licensure, licensure
renewal, and enforcement programs, then the fees shall be adjusted
accordingly through the rulemaking process described in the
Administrative Procedure Act (Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section
11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code).
Separate additional fees may be charged, at the option of the
authority, for services that are not shared by all applicants for
licensure and licensure renewal, including, but not limited to, any
of the following services:
   (1) Initial application for licensure as an EMT-P.
   (2) Competency testing, the fee for which shall not exceed thirty
dollars ($30), except that an additional fee may be charged for the
cost of any services that provide enhanced availability of the exam
for the convenience of the EMT-P, such as on-demand electronic
testing.

applicable according to subdivision (c), submit fingerprint images
and related information for criminal offender record information
searches with the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation.
   (4) Out-of-state training equivalency determination.
   (5) Verification of continuing education for a lapse in licensure.

   (6) Replacement of a lost licensure card. The fees charged for
individual services shall be set so that the total fees charged to
EMT-Ps shall not exceed the authority's actual total cost for the
EMT-P licensure program.
   (e) The authority may provide nonconfidential, nonpersonal
information relating to EMS programs to interested persons upon
request, and may establish and assess fees for the provision of this
information. These fees shall not exceed the costs of providing the
information.
   (f) At the option of the authority, fees may be collected for the
authority by an entity that contracts with the authority to provide
any of the services associated with the EMT-P program. All fees
collected for the authority in a calendar month by any entity
designated by the authority pursuant to this section to collect fees
for the authority shall be transmitted to the authority for deposit
into the Emergency Medical Services Personnel Fund within 30 calendar
days following the last day of the calendar month in which the fees
were received by the designated entity, unless the contract between
the entity and the authority specifies a different timeframe.

registry program and the local EMS agency administrative law judge
reimbursement program. Separate additional fees may be charged, at
the option of the authority, for services that are not shared by all
applicants.
   (c) The authority's fees shall be established in regulations, and
fees charged for individual services shall be set so that the total
fees charged shall not exceed the authority's actual total cost for
the authority's central registry program, state and federal criminal
offender record information search response program, and the local
EMS agency administrative law judge reimbursement program.
   (d) In addition to any fees collected by EMT-I or EMT-II
certifying entities to support their certification, recertification,
or enforcement programs, EMT-I or EMT-II certifying entities shall
collect fees to support the authority's central registry program, and
the local EMS agency administrative law judge reimbursement program.
In lieu of collecting fees from an individual, pursuant to an
employer choice, a collective bargaining agreement, or other
employment contract, the certifying entity shall provide the
appropriate fees to the authority pursuant to this subdivision.
   (e) All fees collected for or provided to the authority in a
calendar month by an EMT-I or EMT-II certifying entity pursuant to
this section shall be transmitted to the authority for deposit into

the fees were received by the certifying entity, unless a contract
between the certifying entity and the authority specifies a different
timeframe.
   (f) At the option of the authority, fees may be collected for the
authority by an entity that contracts with the authority to provide
any of the services associated with the registry program, or the
state and federal criminal offender record information search
response program, or the local EMS agency administrative law judge
reimbursement program. All fees collected for the authority in a
calendar month by any entity designated by the authority pursuant to
this section to collect fees for the authority shall be transmitted
to the authority for deposit into the Emergency Medical Technician
Certification Fund within 30 calendar days following the last day of
the calendar month in which the fees were received by the designated
entity, unless the contract between the entity and the authority
specifies a different timeframe.
   (g) The authority shall annually evaluate fees to determine if the
fee is sufficient to fund the actual costs of the authority's
central registry program, state and federal criminal offender record
information search response program, and local EMS agency
administrative law judge reimbursement program. If the evaluation
shows that the fees are excessive or are insufficient to fund the
actual costs of these programs, then the fees will be adjusted
accordingly through the rulemaking process as outlined in the
Administrative Procedure Act (Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section
11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code).
   (h) The Emergency Medical Technician Certification Fund is hereby
created in the State Treasury. All moneys deposited in the fund shall
be made available, upon appropriation, to the authority for purposes
of the central registry program, state and federal criminal offender
record information search response program, and the local EMS agency
administrative law judge reimbursement program. The local EMS agency
administrative law judge reimbursement program is solely for the
purpose of making reimbursements to local emergency medical service
agencies for actual administrative law judge costs regarding EMT-I or
EMT-II disciplinary action appeals. Reimbursement to the local
emergency medical service agencies shall only be made if adequate
funds are available from fees collected for the authority's local EMS
agency administrative law judge reimbursement program.
   (i) The authority may transfer unused portions of the Emergency
Medical Technician Certification Fund to the Surplus Money Investment
Fund. Funds transferred to the Surplus Money Investment Fund shall
be placed in a separate trust account, and shall be available for
transfer to the Emergency Medical Technician Certification Fund,
together with interest earned, when requested by the authority.
   (j) The authority shall maintain a reserve balance in the
Emergency Medical Technician Certification Fund of 5 percent of
annual revenues. Any increase in the fees deposited in the Emergency
Medical Technician Certification Fund shall be effective upon a
determination by the authority that additional moneys are required to
fund expenditures of this section.

would support a finding that the agency or museum has a right of
possession to the requested cultural items.
   (4) None of the exemptions listed in Section 10.10(c) of Title 43
of the Federal Code of Regulations apply.
   (5) All other applicable requirements of regulations adopted under

dispute is resolved.
   (i) Tribal oral histories, documentations, and testimonies shall
not be afforded less evidentiary weight than other relevant
categories of evidence on account of being in those categories.
   (j) If the parties are unable to resolve a dispute through
mediation, the dispute shall be resolved by the commission. The
determination of the commission shall be deemed to constitute a final
administrative remedy. Any party to the dispute seeking a review of
the determination of the commission is entitled to file an action in
the superior court seeking an independent judgment on the record as
to whether the commission's decision is supported by a preponderance
of the evidence. The independent review shall not constitute a de

a review of the evidence on the record. Petitions for review shall be
filed with the court not later than 30 days after the final decision
of the commission.

  SEC. 166.  Section 44559.11 of the Health and Safety Code is
amended to read:
   44559.11.  It is the intent of the Legislature to ensure that the
state, through the authority, may make maximum, efficient use of
capital access programs enacted by all federal and state agencies, as
well as funding available from any governmental program whose goals
may be advanced by providing funding to the Capital Access Loan
Program. In furtherance of this intent, and notwithstanding any other
provision of this article, when the contributions required pursuant
to subdivision (c) of Section 44559.4 are entirely funded by a source
other than the authority, the authority may, by regulation adopted
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 44520, establish alternate
provisions as necessary to enable the authority to participate in the
alternative funding source program.
  SEC. 167.  Section 50843.5 of the Health and Safety Code is amended

city and counties, and charitable nonprofit organizations organized
under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code that have
created and are operating or will operate housing trust funds. These
funds shall be awarded through the issuance of a Notice of Funding
Availability (NOFA).

sources other than impact fees on residential development shall
receive a priority for funding.
   (2) The department shall set aside funding for new trusts, as
defined by the department in the NOFA.
   (b) Housing trusts eligible for funding under this section shall
have the following characteristics:
   (1) Utilization of a public or joint public and private fund
established by legislation, ordinance, resolution, or a
public-private partnership to receive specific revenue to address
local housing needs.
   (2) Receipt of ongoing revenues from dedicated sources of funding
such as taxes, fees, loan repayments, or private contributions.
   (c) The minimum allocation to an applicant that is a newly
established trust shall be five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000).
The minimum allocation for all other trusts shall be one million
dollars ($1,000,000). No applicant may receive an allocation in
excess of two million dollars ($2,000,000). All funds provided
pursuant to this section shall be matched on a dollar-for-dollar
basis with moneys that are not required by any state or federal law
to be spent on housing. No application for an existing housing trust
shall be considered unless the department has received adequate
documentation of the deposit in the local housing trust fund of the
local match and the identity of the source of matching funds. An
application for a new trust shall not be considered unless the
department has received adequate documentation, as determined by the
department, that an ordinance imposing or dedicating a tax or fee to
be deposited into the new trust has been enacted or the applicant has
adopted a legally binding commitment to deposit matching funds into
the new trust. Funds shall not be disbursed by the department to any
trust until all matching funds are on deposit and then funds may be
disbursed only in amounts necessary to fund projects identified to
receive a loan from the trust within a reasonable period of time, as
determined by the department. Applicants shall be required to
continue funding the local housing trust fund from these identified
local sources, and continue the trust in operation, for a period of
no less than five years from the date of award. If the funding is not
continued for a five-year period, then (1) the amount of the
department's grant to the local housing trust fund, to the extent
that the trust fund has unencumbered funds available, shall be
immediately repaid, and (2) any payments from any projects funded by
the local housing trust fund that would have been paid to the local
housing trust fund shall be paid instead to the department and used
for the program or its successor. The total amount paid to the

appropriated in the annual Budget Act for these purposes, the
director shall establish and may administer a program to provide drug
treatments to persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus
(HIV), the etiologic agent of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
(AIDS). If the director makes a formal determination that, in any
fiscal year, funds appropriated for the program will be insufficient
to provide all of those drug treatments to existing eligible persons
for the fiscal year and that a suspension of the implementation of
the program is necessary, the director may suspend eligibility
determinations and enrollment in the program for the period of time
necessary to meet the needs of existing eligible persons in the
program.
   (2) The director, in consultation with the AIDS Drug Assistance
Program Medical Advisory Committee, shall develop, maintain, and
update as necessary a list of drugs to be provided under this
program. The list shall be exempt from the requirements of the
Administrative Procedure Act (Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section
11340), Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 11370), and Chapter 5
(commencing with Section 11500) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of
the Government Code), and shall not be subject to the review and
approval of the Office of Administrative Law. In addition, the
director shall notify the fiscal and policy committees of the
Legislature of any additions, deletions, or restrictions to the list
within 15 business days of the action. At a minimum, this
notification shall describe the specific change to the formulary, the
reason for the action taken, the estimated number of people it may
affect, and any estimate of costs or savings where applicable.
   (b) The director may grant funds to a county public health
department through standard agreements to administer this program in
that county. To maximize the recipients' access to drugs covered by
this program, the director shall urge the county health department in
counties granted these funds to decentralize distribution of the
drugs to the recipients.
   (c) The director shall establish a rate structure for
reimbursement for the cost of each drug included in the program.
Rates shall not be less than the actual cost of the drug. However,
the director may purchase a listed drug directly from the
manufacturer and negotiate the most favorable bulk price for that
drug.
   (d) Manufacturers of the drugs on the list shall pay the
department a rebate equal to the rebate that would be applicable to
the drug under Section 1927(c) of the federal Social Security Act (42
U.S.C. Sec. 1396r-8(c)) plus an additional rebate to be negotiated
by each manufacturer with the department, except that no rebates
shall be paid to the department under this section on drugs for which
the department has received a rebate under Section 1927(c) of the
federal Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. Sec. 1396r-8(c)) or that have
been purchased on behalf of county health departments or other
eligible entities at discount prices made available under Section
256b of Title 42 of the United States Code.
   (e) The department shall submit an invoice, not less than two
times per year, to each manufacturer for the amount of the rebate
required by subdivision (d).
   (f) Drugs may be removed from the list for failure to pay the
rebate required by subdivision (d), unless the department determines
that removal of the drug from the list would cause substantial
medical hardship to beneficiaries.
   (g) The department may adopt emergency regulations to implement
amendments to this chapter made during the 1997-98 Regular Session,
in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act (Chapter 3.5
(commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of
the Government Code). The initial adoption of emergency regulations
shall be deemed to be an emergency and considered by the Office of
Administrative Law as necessary for the immediate preservation of the
public peace, health and safety, or general welfare. Emergency
regulations adopted pursuant to this section shall remain in effect
for no more than 180 days.
   (h) Reimbursement under this chapter shall not be made for any
drugs that are available to the recipient under any other private,
state, or federal programs, or under any other contractual or legal
entitlements, except that the director may authorize an exemption
from this subdivision where exemption would represent a cost savings
to the state.
   (i) The department may also subsidize certain cost-sharing
requirements for persons otherwise eligible for the AIDS Drug
Assistance Program (ADAP) with existing non-ADAP drug coverage by
paying for prescription drugs included on the ADAP formulary within
the existing ADAP operational structure up to, but not exceeding, the
amount of that cost-sharing obligation. This cost sharing may only
be applied in circumstances in which the other payer recognizes the
ADAP payment as counting toward the individual's cost-sharing
obligation.

seniors in particular on finance, insurance, or risk management.
   (2) "Use" means utilizing a word, phrase, acronym, or logo, in any
oral or written communication from which a sale of insurance to a
senior may directly or indirectly result, that states or suggests,
alone or in context, that a broker or agent holds a senior
designation.

all of the following conditions have been met:

Certifying Agencies, or the organization or the designation is
accredited by an agency that is on the United States Department of
Education's list entitled "Accrediting Agencies Recognized for Title

covering at least the following topics: aspects of aging, health care
coverage, long-term care insurance, financial planning for
retirement, investments, estate planning, and ethics. Textbooks or
other study materials may use chapter and subchapter titles that
differ from those general topics as long as the essential content is
the same. No part of the examinations, textbooks, or other study
materials may concern techniques on how to increase the amount of
insurance or financial products one sells, or recommend the selling
of products offered by specific companies.

   (C) Maintains a code of ethics for its California designees
consistent with that of one of the designations recited in Section

"certified," "chartered," "registered," "adviser," "specialist,"

accredited by an organization that is on the United States Department
of Education's list entitled "Accrediting Agencies Recognized for
Title IV Purposes."
   (f) A violation of subdivision (b) by a broker or agent shall be
grounds for suspension or revocation of the broker's or agent's
license pursuant to Sections 1668 and 1738. Such a violation also
shall be grounds for a cease and desist order and monetary penalty
pursuant to Section 12921.8, as if the broker or agent had acted in a
capacity for which a license was required but not possessed.
   (g) Any person who grants to a California resident the right to
use a senior designation that has not been approved by the
commissioner, without reasonably attempting to determine whether
California is one of the designee's residences, shall be subject to a
cease and desist order and monetary penalty pursuant to Section
12921.8, as if the person had acted in a capacity for which a license
was required but not possessed.

subdivision shall be in addition to any other disciplinary and
remedial authority included in this code.

of Section 785.
   (l) The commissioner may, upon receipt of a petition from an
organization, issue written confirmation that a designation issued by
that organization is exempt from the requirement of approval
pursuant to this section. The commissioner may issue confirmation if
the designation, according to its title or curriculum, or in its
actual use, concerns almost exclusively subject matters other than
insurance or financial services sold to seniors in particular.
   (m) (1) The commissioner may rescind approval of a designation
whenever there has been a material change in the management or
operation of the organization that issues the designation, or in the
procedures or criteria for issuance of the designation, such that if
the organization were to apply for approval of the designation
subsequent to the change, approval would be denied.
   (2) Any rescission of the approval of a designation shall be after
notice and a hearing conducted in accordance with Chapter 5
(commencing with Section 11500) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of
the Government Code, as if the approval were a license, and the
commissioner shall have all of the powers granted therein.

12693) of Division 2 between the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board
and health insurers for enrolled Healthy Families beneficiaries or
to contracts entered into pursuant to Chapter 7 (commencing with

Internet portal developed by the United States Secretary of Health
and Human Services under subdivision (a) of Section 1103 of the
federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) and
paragraph (5) of subdivision (c) of Section 1311 of that act, and
any enhancements to that portal expected to be implemented by the
secretary on or before January 1, 2015. The review shall examine
whether the Internet portal provides sufficient information regarding
all health benefit products offered by health care service plans and
health insurers in the individual and small employer markets in
California to facilitate fair and affirmative marketing of all
individual and small employer products, particularly outside the
California Health Benefit Exchange created under Title 22 (commencing
with Section 100500) of the Government Code. If the commissioner and
the Director of the Department of Managed Health Care jointly
determine that the Internet portal does not adequately achieve those
purposes, they shall jointly develop and maintain an electronic
clearinghouse to achieve those purposes. In performing this function,
the commissioner and the Director of the Department of Managed
Health Care shall routinely monitor individual and small employer
benefit filings with, and complaints submitted by individuals and
small employers to, their respective departments, and shall use any
other available means to maintain the clearinghouse.

section.
   (b) An insurer subject to this section shall have written
policies, procedures, or underwriting guidelines establishing the
criteria and process whereby the insurer makes its decision to
provide or to deny coverage to individuals applying for coverage and
sets the rate for that coverage. These guidelines, policies, or
procedures shall ensure that the plan rating and underwriting
criteria comply with Sections 10140 and 10291.5 and all other
applicable provisions.
   (c) On or before June 1, 2006, and annually thereafter, every
insurer shall file with the commissioner a general description of the
criteria, policies, procedures, or guidelines that the insurer uses
for rating and underwriting decisions related to individual health
insurance policies, which means automatic declinable health
conditions, health conditions that may lead to a coverage decline,
height and weight standards, health history, health care utilization,
lifestyle, or behavior that might result in a decline for coverage
or severely limit the health insurance products for which individuals
applying for coverage would be eligible. An insurer may comply with
this section by submitting to the department underwriting materials
or resource guides provided to agents and brokers, provided that
those materials include the information required to be submitted by
this section.
   (d) Commencing January 1, 2011, the commissioner shall post on the
department's Internet Web site, in a manner accessible and
understandable to consumers, general, noncompany specific information
about rating and underwriting criteria and practices in the
individual market and information about the California Major Risk
Medical Insurance Program (Part 6.5 (commencing with Section 12700))
and the federal temporary high risk pool established pursuant to Part
6.6 (commencing with Section 12739.5). The commissioner shall
develop the information for the Internet Web site in consultation
with the Department of Managed Health Care to enhance the consistency
of information provided to consumers. Information about individual
health insurance shall also include the following notification:
   "Please examine your options carefully before declining group
coverage or continuation coverage, such as COBRA, that may be
available to you. You should be aware that companies selling
individual health insurance typically require a review of your
medical history that could result in a higher premium or you could be
denied coverage entirely."
   (e) Nothing in this section shall authorize public disclosure of
company-specific rating and underwriting criteria and practices
submitted to the commissioner.
   (f) This section shall not apply to a closed block of business, as
defined in Section 10176.10.

services provided to an insured that are not covered services under
the insured's policy. This subdivision shall only apply to provider
contracts issued, amended, or renewed on or after January 1, 2011.
   (b) A provider shall not charge more for dental services that are
not covered services under a health insurance policy than his or her
usual and customary rate for those services. The department shall not

   IMPORTANT: If you opt to receive dental services that are not
covered services under this policy, a participating dental provider
may charge you his or her usual and customary rate for those
services. Prior to providing a patient with dental services that are
not a covered benefit, the dentist should provide to the patient a
treatment plan that includes each anticipated service to be provided
and the estimated cost of each service. If you would like more
information about dental coverage options, you may call member
services at insert appropriate telephone number] or your insurance
broker. To fully understand your coverage, you may wish to carefully
review this evidence of coverage document.

dental services" means dental care services for which the insurer is
obligated to pay pursuant to an insured's policy, or for which the

   (c) Violation of a material contract provision relating to

   "Net worth" is defined as the excess of assets over all
liabilities and required reserves. It may carry as an asset the
actual cost of its title plant provided the value ascribed to that
asset shall not exceed the aggregate value of all other assets.
   Where a title plant of an underwritten title company is not being
currently maintained, the asset value of the plant shall not exceed
its asset value as determined in the preceding paragraph as of the
date to which that plant is currently maintained, less one-tenth
thereof for each succeeding year or part of the succeeding year that
the plant is not being currently maintained. For the purposes of this
section, a title plant shall be deemed currently maintained so long
as it is used in the normal conduct of the business of title
insurance, and (A) the owner of the plant continues regularly to
obtain and index title record data to the plant or to a continuation
thereof in a format other than that previously used, including, but
not limited to, computerization of the data, or (B) the owner of the
plant is a participant, in an arrangement for joint use of a title
plant system regularly maintained in any format, provided the owner
is contractually entitled to receive a copy of the title record data
contained in the jointly used title plant system during the period of
the owner's participation therein, either periodically or upon
termination of that participation, at a cost not to exceed the actual
cost of duplication of the title record data.
   An underwritten title company at all times shall maintain current
assets of at least ten thousand dollars ($10,000) in excess of its
current liabilities, as current assets and liabilities may be defined
pursuant to regulations made by the commissioner. In making the
regulations, the commissioner shall be guided by generally accepted
accounting principles followed by certified public accountants in
this state.
   (3) An underwritten title company shall obtain from the
commissioner a license to transact its business. The license shall
not be granted until the applicant conforms to the requirements of
this section and all other provisions of this code specifically
applicable to applicant. After issuance the holder shall continue to
comply with the requirements as to its business set forth in this
code, in the applicable rules and regulations of the commissioner and
in the laws of this state.
   Any underwritten title company who possesses, or is required to
possess, a license pursuant to this section shall be subject as if an
insurer to the provisions of Article 8 (commencing with Section 820)
of Chapter 1 of Part 2 of Division 1 of this code and shall be
deemed to be subject to authorization by the Insurance Commissioner
within the meaning of subdivision (e) of Section 25100 of the
Corporations Code.
   The license may be obtained by filing an application on a form
prescribed by the commissioner accompanied by a filing fee of three
hundred fifty-four dollars ($354). The license when issued shall be
for an indefinite term and shall expire with the termination of the
existence of the holder, subject to the annual renewal fee imposed
under Sections 12415 and 12416.
   An underwritten title company seeking to extend its license to an
additional county shall pay a two hundred seven dollar ($207) fee for
each additional county, and shall furnish to the commissioner
evidence, at least sufficient to meet the minimum net worth
requirements of paragraph (2), of its financial ability to expand its
business operation to include the additional county or counties.
   (4) (A) An underwritten title company shall furnish an audit to
the commissioner on the forms provided by the commissioner annually,
either on a calendar year basis on or before March 31 or, if approved
in writing by the commissioner in respect to any individual company,
on a fiscal year basis on or before 90 days after the end of the
fiscal year. The time for furnishing any audit required by this
paragraph may be extended, for good cause shown, on written approval
of the commissioner for a period, not to exceed 60 days. Failure to
submit an audit on time, or within the extended time that the
commissioner may grant, shall be grounds for an order by the
commissioner to accept no new business pursuant to subdivision (d).
The audits shall be private, except that a synopsis of the balance
sheet on a form prescribed by the commissioner may be made available
to the public.
   (B) The audits shall be made in accordance with generally accepted
auditing standards by an independent certified public accountant or
independent licensed public accountant whose certification or license
is in good standing at the time of the preparation. The fee for
filing the audit shall be three hundred thirteen dollars ($313).
   (C) The commissioner may refuse to accept an audit or order a new
audit for any of the following reasons:
   (i) Adverse result in any proceeding before the California Board
of Accountancy affecting the auditor's license.
   (ii) The auditor has an affiliation with the underwritten title
company or any of its officers or directors that would prevent his or
her reports on the company from being reasonably objective.
   (iii) The auditor has suffered conviction of any misdemeanor or
felony based on his or her activities as an accountant.
   (iv) Judgment adverse to the auditor in any civil action finding
him or her guilty of fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation in the
practice of his or her profession.
   Any company that fails to file any audit or other report on or
before the date it is due shall pay to the commissioner a penalty fee
of one hundred eighteen dollars ($118) and on failure to pay that or
any other fee or file the audit required by this section shall
forfeit the privilege of accepting new business until the delinquency
is corrected.
   (b) An underwritten title company may engage in the escrow
business and act as escrow agent provided that:
   (1) It shall maintain record of all receipts and disbursements of
escrow funds.
   (2) It shall deposit seven thousand five hundred dollars ($7,500)
for each county in which it transacts business in some form permitted
by Section 12351 with the commissioner who shall immediately make a
special deposit of that amount in the State Treasury and that deposit
shall be subject to Sections 12353, 12356, 12357, and 12358 and, as
long as there are no claims against the deposit, all interest and
dividends thereon shall be paid to the depositor. The deposit shall
be for the security and protection of persons having lawful claims
against the depositor growing out of escrow transactions with it. The
deposit shall be maintained until four years after all escrows
handled by the depositor have been closed.
   (A) The commissioner may release the deposits prior to the passage
of the four-year period upon presentation of evidence satisfactory
to the commissioner of either a statutory merger of the depositor
into a licensee or certificate holder subject to the jurisdiction of
the commissioner, or a valid assumption agreement under which all
liability of the depositor stemming from escrow transactions handled
by it is assumed by a licensee or certificate holder subject to the
jurisdiction of the commissioner.
   (B) With the foregoing exceptions, the deposit shall be returned
to the depositor or lawful successor in interest following the
four-year period, upon presentation of evidence satisfactory to the
commissioner that there are no claims against the deposit stemming
from escrow transactions handled by the depositor. If the
commissioner has evidence of one or more claims against the
depositor, and the depositor is not in conservatorship or
liquidation, the commissioner may interplead the deposit by special
endorsement to a court of competent jurisdiction for distribution on
the basis that claims against the depositor stemming from escrow
transactions handled by it have priority in the distribution over
other claims against the depositor.
   (c) The commissioner shall, whenever it appears necessary, examine
the business and affairs of a company licensed under this section.
All of these examinations shall be at the expense of the company.
   (d) At any time that the commissioner determines, after notice and
hearing, that a company licensed under this section has willfully
failed to comply with a provision of this section, the commissioner
shall make his or her order prohibiting the company from conducting
its business for a period of not more than one year.
   Any company violating the commissioner's order is subject to
seizure under Article 14 (commencing with Section 1010) of Chapter 1
of Part 2 of Division 1, is guilty of a misdemeanor, and may have the
license revoked by the commissioner. Any person aiding and abetting
any company in a violation of the commissioner's order is guilty of a
misdemeanor.
   The purpose of this section is to maintain the solvency of the
companies subject to this section and to protect the public by
preventing fraud and requiring fair dealing. In order to carry out
these purposes, the commissioner may make reasonable rules and
regulations to govern the conduct of its business of companies
subject to this section.
   The name under which each underwritten title company is licensed
shall at all times be an approved name. The fee for filing an
application for a change of name shall be one hundred eighteen
dollars ($118). Each such company shall be subject to the provisions
of Article 14 (commencing with Section 1010) and Article 14.5
(commencing with Section 1065.1) of Chapter 1 of Part 2 of Division
1.
   The rules and regulations shall be adopted, amended, or repealed
in accordance with the procedure provided in Chapter 3.5 (commencing
with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the
Government Code.

a game of bingo, as defined in subdivision (o) of Section 326.5, in
which the numbers or symbols on randomly drawn plastic balls are

to link the facilities may include cable, Internet, satellite,

transmission that ensures the secure, accurate, and simultaneous
transmission of the announcement of numbers or symbols in the game

electronic devices are used.

the person in question.
   (b) Incident to any detention permitted pursuant to subdivision
(a), a peace officer may conduct a limited search of the person for
firearms or weapons if the peace officer reasonably concludes that

contained herein is hereby enacted into law and entered into on
behalf of the state with any and all other states legally joining
therein in a form substantially as follows:


      Preamble


   Whereas:  The interstate compact for the supervision of Parolees
and Probationers was established in 1937. It is the earliest
corrections "compact" established among the states and has not been
amended since its adoption over 62 years ago.
   Whereas:  This compact is the only vehicle for the controlled
movement of adult parolees and probationers across state lines and it
currently has jurisdiction over more than a quarter of a million
offenders.
   Whereas:  The complexities of the compact have become more
difficult to administer, and many jurisdictions have expanded
supervision expectations to include currently unregulated practices
such as victim input, victim notification requirements, and sex
offender registration.
   Whereas:  After hearings, national surveys, and a detailed study
by a task force appointed by the National Institute of Corrections,
the overwhelming recommendation has been to amend the document to
bring about an effective management capacity that addresses public
safety concerns and offender accountability.
   Whereas:  Upon the adoption of this Interstate Compact for Adult
Offender Supervision, it is the intention of the Legislature to
repeal the previous Interstate Compact for the Supervision of
Parolees and Probationers as to those states that have ratified this
compact.

   Be it enacted by the General Assembly (Legislature) of the state
of California.

   Short title:  This Act may be cited as The Interstate Compact for
Adult Offender Supervision.


   Article I.  Purpose


   The compacting states to this Interstate Compact recognize that
each state is responsible for the supervision of adult offenders in
the community who are authorized pursuant to the Bylaws and Rules of
this compact to travel across state lines both to and from each
compacting state in a manner so as to track the location of
offenders, transfer supervision authority in an orderly and efficient
manner, and when necessary return offenders to the originating
jurisdictions. The compacting states also recognize that Congress, by
enacting the Crime Control Act, 4 U.S.C. Section 112 (1965), has
authorized and encouraged compacts for cooperative efforts and mutual
assistance in the prevention of crime. It is the purpose of this
compact and the Interstate Commission created hereunder, through
means of joint and cooperative action among the compacting states: to
provide the framework for the promotion of public safety and protect
the rights of victims through the control and regulation of the
interstate movement of offenders in the community; to provide for the
effective tracking, supervision, and rehabilitation of these
offenders by the sending and receiving states; and to equitably
distribute the costs, benefits, and obligations of the compact among
the compacting states. In addition, this compact will: create an
Interstate Commission which will establish uniform procedures to
manage the movement between states of adults placed under community
supervision and released to the community under the jurisdiction of
courts, paroling authorities, corrections or other criminal justice
agencies which will promulgate rules to achieve the purpose of this
compact; ensure an opportunity for input and timely notice to victims
and to jurisdictions where defined offenders are authorized to
travel or to relocate across state lines; establish a system of
uniform data collection, access to information on active cases by
authorized criminal justice officials, and regular reporting of
Compact activities to heads of state councils, state executive,
judicial, and legislative branches and criminal justice
administrators; monitor compliance with rules governing interstate
movement of offenders and initiate interventions to address and
correct non-compliance; and coordinate training and education
regarding regulations of interstate movement of offenders for
officials involved in these types of activities. The compacting
states recognize that there is no "right" of any offender to live in
another state and that duly accredited officers of a sending state
may at all times enter a receiving state and there apprehend and
retake any offender under supervision subject to the provisions of
this compact and Bylaws and Rules promulgated hereunder. It is the
policy of the compacting states that the activities conducted by the
Interstate Commission created herein are the formation of public
policies and are therefore public business.

be appointed by the state council or by the Governor in consultation
with the Legislature and the Judiciary. In addition to appointment of
its commissioner to the National Interstate Commission, each state

law enforcement agencies to receive or exchange information or
records subject to nondisclosure and confidentiality provisions.
   Public notice shall be given of all meetings and all meetings

and shall reference each relevant exemptive provision. The
Interstate Commission shall keep minutes which shall fully and
clearly describe all matters discussed in any meeting and shall
provide a full and accurate summary of any actions taken, and the
reasons therefor, including a description of each of the views
expressed on any item and the record of any rollcall vote (reflected
in the vote of each Member on the question). All documents considered
in connection with any action shall be identified in the minutes.
The Interstate Commission shall collect standardized data concerning
the interstate movement of offenders as directed through its By-laws
                                          and Rules which shall
specify the data to be collected, the means of collection and data
exchange and reporting requirements.


   Article VIII.  Rulemaking Functions of the Interstate Commission


   The Interstate Commission shall promulgate Rules in order to
effectively and efficiently achieve the purposes of the Compact
including transition rules governing administration of the compact
during the period in which it is being considered and enacted by the
states.
   Rulemaking shall occur pursuant to the criteria set forth in this
Article and the By-laws and Rules adopted pursuant thereto.
Rulemaking shall substantially conform to the principles of the
federal Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C.S. section 551 et seq.,
and the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C.S. app. 2, section 1
et seq., as may be amended (hereinafter "APA"). All Rules and
amendments shall become binding as of the date specified in each Rule
or amendment.
   If a majority of the legislatures of the Compacting States rejects
a Rule, by enactment of a statute or resolution in the same manner
used to adopt the compact, then the Rule shall have no further force
and effect in any Compacting State.
   When promulgating a Rule, the Interstate Commission shall:
   Publish the proposed Rule stating with particularity the text of
the Rule which is proposed and the reason for the proposed Rule.
   Allow persons to submit written data, facts, opinions and
arguments, which information shall be publicly available.
   Provide an opportunity for an informal hearing.
   Promulgate a final Rule and its effective date, if appropriate,
based on the rulemaking record.
   Not later than sixty days after a Rule is promulgated, any
interested person may file a petition in the United States District
Court for the District of Columbia or in the Federal District Court
where the Interstate Commission's principal office is located for
judicial review of the Rule. If the court finds that the Interstate

kind prior to securing the funds adequate to meet the same; nor shall

   Any state, as defined in Article II of this compact, is eligible

binding upon legislative enactment of the Compact into law by no less
than 35 of the States. The initial effective date shall be the later
of July 1, 2001, or upon enactment into law by the 35th
jurisdiction. Thereafter, it shall become effective and binding, as
to any other Compacting State, upon enactment of the Compact into law
by that State. The governors of Non-member states or their designees
will be invited to participate in Interstate Commission activities
on a non-voting basis prior to adoption of the compact by all states
and territories of the United States.
   Amendments to the Compact may be proposed by the Interstate
Commission for enactment by the Compacting States. No amendment shall
become effective and binding upon the Interstate Commission and the
Compacting States unless and until it is enacted into law by
unanimous consent of the Compacting States.


   Article XII.  Withdrawal, Default, Termination, and Judicial
Enforcement


   Section A.  Withdrawal
   Once effective, the Compact shall continue in force and remain
binding upon each and every Compacting State; provided, that a
Compacting State may withdraw from the Compact ("Withdrawing State")
by enacting a statute specifically repealing the statute which
enacted the Compact into law.
   The effective date of withdrawal is the effective date of the
repeal. The Withdrawing State shall immediately notify the
Chairperson of the Interstate Commission in writing upon the
introduction of legislation repealing this Compact in the Withdrawing
State. The Interstate Commission shall notify the other Compacting
States of the Withdrawing State's intent to withdraw within 60 days
of its receipt thereof. The Withdrawing State is responsible for all
assessments, obligations and liabilities incurred through the
effective date of withdrawal, including any obligations, the
performance of which extend beyond the effective date of withdrawal.
   Reinstatement following withdrawal of any Compacting State shall
occur upon the Withdrawing State reenacting the Compact or upon a
later date as determined by the Interstate Commission.
   Section B.  Default
   If the Interstate Commission determines that any Compacting State
has at any time defaulted ("Defaulting State") in the performance of
any of its obligations or responsibilities under this Compact, the
By-laws or any duly promulgated Rules the Interstate Commission may
impose any or all of the following penalties: Fines, fees and costs
in amounts as are deemed to be reasonable as fixed by the Interstate
Commission. Remedial training and technical assistance as directed by
the Interstate Commission; suspension and termination of membership
in the compact. Suspension shall be imposed only after all other
reasonable means of securing compliance under the By-laws and Rules
have been exhausted. Immediate notice of suspension shall be given by
the Interstate Commission to the Governor, the Chief Justice or
Chief Judicial Officer of the state, the majority and minority
leaders of the defaulting state's legislature, and the State Council.

   The grounds for default include, but are not limited to, failure
of a Compacting State to perform the obligations or responsibilities
imposed upon it by this compact, Interstate Commission By-laws, or
duly promulgated Rules. The Interstate Commission shall immediately
notify the Defaulting State in writing of the penalty imposed by the
Interstate Commission on the Defaulting State pending a cure of the
default. The Interstate Commission shall stipulate the conditions and
the time period within which the Defaulting State must cure its
default. If the Defaulting State fails to cure the default within the
time period specified by the Interstate Commission, in addition to
any other penalties imposed herein, the Defaulting State may be
terminated from the Compact upon an affirmative vote of a majority of
the Compacting States and all rights, privileges and benefits
conferred by this Compact shall be terminated from the effective date
of suspension. Within 60 days of the effective date of termination
of a Defaulting State, the Interstate Commission shall notify the
Governor, the Chief Justice or Chief Judicial Officer and the
Majority and Minority Leaders of the Defaulting State's legislature
and the state council of the termination.
   The Defaulting State is responsible for all assessments,
obligations and liabilities incurred through the effective date of
termination including any obligations, the performance of which
extends beyond the effective date of termination.
   The Interstate Commission shall not bear any costs relating to the
Defaulting State unless otherwise mutually agreed upon between the
Interstate Commission and the Defaulting State. Reinstatement
following termination of any Compacting State requires both a
reenactment of the Compact by the Defaulting State and the approval
of the Interstate Commission pursuant to the Rules.
   Section C.  Judicial Enforcement
   The Interstate Commission may, by majority vote of the Members,
initiate legal action in the United States District Court for the
District of Columbia or, at the discretion of the Interstate
Commission, in the Federal District where the Interstate Commission
has its offices to enforce compliance with the provisions of the
Compact, its duly promulgated Rules and By-laws, against any
Compacting State in default. In the event judicial enforcement is
necessary the prevailing party shall be awarded all litigation costs
including reasonable attorneys fees.
   Section D.  Dissolution of Compact
   The Compact dissolves effective upon the date of the withdrawal or
default of the Compacting State which reduces membership in the
Compact to one Compacting State.
   Upon the dissolution of this Compact, the Compact becomes null and
void and shall be of no further force or effect, and the business
and affairs of the Interstate Commission shall be wound up and any
surplus funds shall be distributed in accordance with the By-laws.


   Article XIII.  Severability and Construction


   The provisions of this Compact shall be severable, and if any
phrase, clause, sentence or provision is deemed unenforceable, the
remaining provisions of the Compact shall be enforceable.
   The provisions of this Compact shall be liberally constructed to
effectuate its purposes.


   Article XIV.  Binding Effect of Compact and Other Laws


   Section A.  Other Laws
   Nothing herein prevents the enforcement of any other law of a
Compacting State that is not inconsistent with this Compact.
   All Compacting States' laws conflicting with this Compact are
superseded to the extent of the conflict.
   Section B.  Binding Effect of the Compact
   All lawful actions of the Interstate Commission, including all
Rules and By-laws promulgated by the Interstate Commission, are
binding upon the Compacting States.

Compacting States are binding in accordance with their terms.
   Upon the request of a party to a conflict over meaning or
interpretation of Interstate Commission actions, and upon a majority
vote of the Compacting States, the Interstate Commission may issue
advisory opinions regarding meaning or interpretation.
   In the event any provision of this Compact exceeds the
constitutional limits imposed on the legislature of any Compacting
State, the obligations, duties, powers or jurisdiction sought to be
conferred by the provision upon the Interstate Commission shall be
ineffective and the obligations, duties, powers or jurisdiction shall
remain in the Compacting State and shall be exercised by the agency
thereof to which the obligations, duties, powers or jurisdiction are
delegated by law in effect at the time this Compact becomes
effective.

  SEC. 239.  Section 29855 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   29855.  (a) Any person employed as a peace officer described in

employment or livelihood is dependent on the ability to legally
possess a firearm, who is subject to the prohibition imposed by
Section 29805 because of a conviction under Section 273.5, 273.6, or
646.9, may petition the court only once for relief from this
prohibition.
   (b) The petition shall be filed with the court in which the
petitioner was sentenced. If possible, the matter shall be heard
before the same judge who sentenced the petitioner.
   (c) Upon filing the petition, the clerk of the court shall set the
hearing date and shall notify the petitioner and the prosecuting
attorney of the date of the hearing.
   (d) Upon making each of the following findings, the court may
reduce or eliminate the prohibition, impose conditions on reduction
or elimination of the prohibition, or otherwise grant relief from the
prohibition as the court deems appropriate:
   (1) Finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the petitioner
is likely to use a firearm in a safe and lawful manner.
   (2) Finds that the petitioner is not within a prohibited class as

check.
   (f) The department shall make applications to conduct a firearms

is fired, provided that the Department of Justice certifies that the
technology used to create the imprint is available to more than one
manufacturer unencumbered by any patent restrictions.

irrevocable on or after September 1, 1993, and before January 1,
2011. For the purposes of this section, an instrument that is

   (2) The Department of General Services shall update the list every
180 days.
   (3) Before finalizing an initial list pursuant to paragraph (1) or
an updated list pursuant to paragraph (2), the Department of General
Services shall do all of the following before a person is included
on the list:
   (A) Provide 90 days' written notice of its intent to include the
person on the list. The notice shall inform the person that inclusion
on the list would make the person ineligible to bid on, submit a
proposal for, or enter into or renew, a contract for goods or
services of one million dollars ($1,000,000) or more with a public
entity. The notice shall specify that the person, if it ceases its
engagement in investment activities in Iran as described in
subdivision (a) of Section 2202.5, may become eligible for a future
contract, or contract renewal, for goods or services of one million
dollars ($1,000,000) or more with a public entity upon removal from
the list.
   (B) The Department of General Services shall provide a person with
an opportunity to comment in writing to the Department of General
Services that it is not engaged in investment activities in Iran. If
the person demonstrates to the Department of General Services that

described in subdivision (a) of Section 2202.5, the person shall not
be included on the list, and shall be eligible to enter into or renew
a contract for goods or services of one million dollars ($1,000,000)
or more with a public entity, unless the person is otherwise
ineligible to bid on a contract as described in paragraph (3) of
subdivision (a) of Section 2205.
   (4) The Department of General Services shall make every effort to
avoid erroneously including a person on the list.
   (5) The Department of General Services may assess a fee upon

in order to pay for the necessary, actual costs of creating and
maintaining this list. The Department of General Services shall
provide the list free of charge to any public entity and to the
Legislature, upon request.
   (6) A person that has a contract with CalPERS or CalSTRS, or both,
shall not be deemed a person that engages in investment activities

person engaged in investment activities in Iran, on a case-by-case
basis, to be eligible for, or to bid on, submit a proposal for, or

General Services. For purposes of local contracts for goods or
services of one million dollars ($1,000,000) or more, "awarding body"
means the representative of the local public entity awarding the

($1,000,000) or more with a local public entity, the local public
entity makes a public finding that, absent such an exemption, the
local public entity would be unable to obtain the goods or services
for which the contract is offered.
   (B) For a contract for goods or services of one million dollars
($1,000,000) or more with a state agency, other than the office of a
state constitutional officer, the Governor makes a public finding
that absent such an exemption, the state agency would be unable to
obtain the goods or services for which the contract is offered.
   (C) For a contract for goods or services of one million dollars
($1,000,000) or more with an office of a state constitutional
officer, if the state constitutional officer makes a public finding
that, absent such an exemption, his or her office would be unable to
obtain the goods or services for which the contract is offered.
   (d) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), a public entity shall permit
a financial institution described in subdivision (b) of Section
2202.5 to be eligible for, or to bid on, submit a proposal for, or
enter into or renew, a contract for goods or services of one million
dollars ($1,000,000) or more with a public entity if the person using

this paragraph shall be deposited in the State Public Works
Enforcement Fund created by Section 1771.3 of the Labor Code, and
shall be used only for enforcement of prevailing wages requirements
on those projects.
   (C) The Department of Industrial Relations may waive the fee set
forth in subparagraph (B) if the board of supervisors has previously
been granted approval by the director to initiate and operate a labor
compliance program on its projects and requests to continue to
operate that labor compliance program on its projects in lieu of
labor compliance by the department pursuant to subdivision (b) of
Section 1771.55. The fee shall not be waived for the board of
supervisors if it contracts with a third party to initiate and
enforce labor compliance programs on its projects.

written decision supporting its contract award and stating the basis
of the award. The notice of award shall also include the county's
second- and third-ranked design-build entities.
   (v) For purposes of this paragraph, "skilled labor force
availability" shall be determined by the existence of an agreement
with a registered apprenticeship program, approved by the California
Apprenticeship Council, which has graduated apprentices in each of
the preceding five years. This graduation requirement shall not apply
to programs providing apprenticeship training for any craft that has
been deemed by the Department of Labor and the Department of
Industrial Relations to be an apprenticeable craft in the five years
prior to enactment of this act.
   (vi) For purposes of this paragraph, a bidder's "safety record"
shall be deemed "acceptable" if its experience modification rate for
the most recent three-year period is an average of 1.00 or less, and
its average total recordable injury/illness rate and average lost
work rate for the most recent three-year period does not exceed the
applicable statistical standards for its business category or if the
bidder is a party to an alternative dispute resolution system as
provided for in Section 3201.5 of the Labor Code.
   (e) (1) Any design-build entity that is selected to design and
build a project pursuant to this section shall possess or obtain
sufficient bonding to cover the contract amount for nondesign
services, and errors and omission insurance coverage sufficient to
cover all design and architectural services provided in the contract.
This section does not prohibit a general or engineering contractor
from being designated the lead entity on a design-build entity for
the purposes of purchasing necessary bonding to cover the activities
of the design-build entity.
   (2) Any payment or performance bond written for the purposes of
this section shall be written using a bond form developed by the
county.
   (f) All subcontractors that were not listed by the design-build
entity in accordance with clause (i) of subparagraph (A) of paragraph

   (1) Provide public notice of the availability of work to be
subcontracted in accordance with the publication requirements
applicable to the competitive bidding process of the county.
   (2) Provide a fixed date and time on which the subcontracted work
will be awarded in accordance with the procedure established pursuant
to this section.
   (g) Lists of subcontractors, bidders, and bid awards relating to
the project shall be submitted by the design-build entity to the
awarding body within 14 days of the award. These documents are deemed
to be public records and shall be available for public inspection
pursuant to this chapter and Article 1 (commencing with Section 6250)
of Chapter 3.5 of Division 7 of the Government Code.

   (k) Nothing in this section is intended to affect, expand, alter,
or limit any rights or remedies otherwise available at law.
   (l) (1) If the county elects to award a project pursuant to this
section, retention proceeds withheld by the county from the
design-build entity shall not exceed 5 percent if a performance and
payment bond, issued by an admitted surety insurer, is required in
the solicitation of bids.
   (2) In a contract between the design-build entity and the
subcontractor, and in a contract between a subcontractor and any
subcontractor thereunder, the percentage of the retention proceeds
withheld may not exceed the percentage specified in the contract
between the county and the design-build entity. If the design-build
entity provides written notice to any subcontractor who is not a
member of the design-build entity, prior to or at the time the bid is
requested, that a bond may be required and the subcontractor
subsequently is unable or refuses to furnish a bond to the
design-build entity, then the design-build entity may withhold
retention proceeds in excess of the percentage specified in the
contract between the county and the design-build entity from any
payment made by the design-build entity to the subcontractor.

   (1) Provide public notice of the availability of work to be
subcontracted in accordance with the publication requirements
applicable to the competitive bidding process of the qualified
entity.
   (2) Provide a fixed date and time on which the subcontracted work
will be awarded in accordance with the procedure established pursuant
to this section.
                  (g) The minimum performance criteria and design

to this section, retention proceeds withheld by the qualified entity
from the design-build entity shall not exceed 5 percent if a
performance and payment bond, issued by an admitted surety insurer,
is required in the solicitation of bids.
   (2) In a contract between the design-build entity and the
subcontractor, and in a contract between a subcontractor and any
subcontractor thereunder, the percentage of the retention proceeds
withheld may not exceed the percentage specified in the contract
between the qualified entity and the design-build entity. If the
design-build entity provides written notice to any subcontractor who
is not a member of the design-build entity, prior to or at the time
the bid is requested, that a bond may be required and the
subcontractor subsequently is unable or refuses to furnish a bond to
the design-build entity, then the design-build entity may withhold
retention proceeds in excess of the percentage specified in the
contract between the qualified entity and the design-build entity
from any payment made by the design-build entity to the
subcontractor.
   (l) Each qualified entity that elects to proceed under this

read:
   667.  Each member of the board shall receive one hundred dollars
($100) for each day during which the member is engaged in the
performance of official duties. The compensation of each member,
except the compensation of the chair, shall not, however, exceed in

  SEC. 255.  Section 4186 of the Public Resources Code is amended to
read:
   4186.  All moneys that are received by the state pursuant to the
federal Clarke-McNary Act and that are regularly allotted by the
federal government according to an annual formula shall be paid into
the General Fund. Any supplemental money received from the federal
government pursuant to the federal Clarke-McNary Act for use by the
department for specially designated projects shall be authorized by
the Director of Finance for augmentation of the subitem captioned
"Reimbursements" of the principal item of appropriation from the
General Fund for the support of the department contained in the

  SEC. 256.  Section 4512.5 of the Public Resources Code is amended
to read:
   4512.5.  The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
   (a) State forests play a critical and unique role in the state's
carbon balance by sequestering carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and
storing it long term as carbon.
   (b) According to the scoping plan adopted by the State Air
Resources Board pursuant to the California Global Warming Solutions
Act of 2006 (Division 25.5 (commencing with Section 38500) of the
Health and Safety Code), the state's forests currently are an annual
net sequester of five million metric tons of carbon dioxide
(5MMTCO2). In fact, the forest sector is the only sector included in
the scoping plan that provides a net sequestration of greenhouse gas
emissions.
   (c) The scoping plan proposes to maintain the current 5MMTCO2
annual sequestration rate through 2020 by implementing "sustainable
management practices," which include potential changes to existing
forest practices and land use regulations.
   (d) There is increasing evidence that climate change has and will
continue to stress forest ecosystems, which underscores the
importance of proactively managing forests so that they can adapt to
these stressors and remain a net sequester of carbon dioxide.
   (e) The board, the department, and the State Air Resources Board
should strive to go beyond the status quo sequestration rate and
ensure that their policies and regulations reflect the unique role
forests play in combating climate change.

have been discovered in the logging area of the plan since approval
of the timber harvesting plan.
   (2) Significant physical changes to the harvest area or adjacent
areas have occurred since the timber harvesting plan's cumulative
impacts were originally assessed.
   (f) An extension of a timber harvesting plan on which either of
the conditions in subdivision (e) has occurred may be obtained only
pursuant to Section 1039 of Title 14 of the California Code of

  SEC. 269.  Section 2827 of the Public Utilities Code is amended to
read:
   2827.  (a) The Legislature finds and declares that a program to
provide net energy metering combined with net surplus compensation,
co-energy metering, and wind energy co-metering for eligible
customer-generators is one way to encourage substantial private
investment in renewable energy resources, stimulate in-state economic
growth, reduce demand for electricity during peak consumption
periods, help stabilize California's energy supply infrastructure,
enhance the continued diversification of California's energy resource
mix, reduce interconnection and administrative costs for electricity
suppliers, and encourage conservation and efficiency.
   (b) As used in this section, the following terms have the
following meanings:
   (1) "Co-energy metering" means a program that is the same in all
other respects as a net energy metering program, except that the
local publicly owned electric utility has elected to apply a
generation-to-generation energy and time-of-use credit formula as
provided in subdivision (i).
   (2) "Electrical cooperative" means an electrical cooperative as
defined in Section 2776.
   (3) "Electric utility" means an electrical corporation, a local
publicly owned electric utility, or an electrical cooperative, or any
other entity, except an electric service provider, that offers
electrical service. This section shall not apply to a local publicly
owned electric utility that serves more than 750,000 customers and
that also conveys water to its customers.
   (4) "Eligible customer-generator" means a residential customer,
small commercial customer as defined in subdivision (h) of Section
331, or commercial, industrial, or agricultural customer of an
electric utility, who uses a solar or a wind turbine electrical
generating facility, or a hybrid system of both, with a capacity of
not more than one megawatt that is located on the customer's owned,
leased, or rented premises, and is interconnected and operates in
parallel with the electric grid, and is intended primarily to offset
part or all of the customer's own electrical requirements.
   (5) "Net energy metering" means measuring the difference between
the electricity supplied through the electric grid and the
electricity generated by an eligible customer-generator and fed back
to the electric grid over a 12-month period as described in
subdivisions (c) and (h).
   (6) "Net surplus customer-generator" means an eligible
customer-generator that generates more electricity during a 12-month
period than is supplied by the electric utility to the eligible
customer-generator during the same 12-month period.
   (7) "Net surplus electricity" means all electricity generated by
an eligible customer-generator measured in kilowatthours over a
12-month period that exceeds the amount of electricity consumed by
that eligible customer-generator.
   (8) "Net surplus electricity compensation" means a per
kilowatthour rate offered by the electric utility to the net surplus
customer-generator for net surplus electricity that is set by the
ratemaking authority pursuant to subdivision (h).
   (9) "Ratemaking authority" means, for an electrical corporation or
electrical cooperative, the commission, and for a local publicly
owned electric utility, the local elected body responsible for
setting the rates of the local publicly owned utility.
   (10) "Wind energy co-metering" means any wind energy project
greater than 50 kilowatts, but not exceeding one megawatt, where the
difference between the electricity supplied through the electric grid
and the electricity generated by an eligible customer-generator and
fed back to the electric grid over a 12-month period is as described
in subdivision (h). Wind energy co-metering shall be accomplished
pursuant to Section 2827.8.
   (c) (1) Every electric utility shall develop a standard contract
or tariff providing for net energy metering, and shall make this
standard contract or tariff available to eligible
customer-generators, upon request, on a first-come-first-served basis
until the time that the total rated generating capacity used by
eligible customer-generators exceeds 5 percent of the electric
utility's aggregate customer peak demand. Net energy metering shall
be accomplished using a single meter capable of registering the flow
of electricity in two directions. An additional meter or meters to
monitor the flow of electricity in each direction may be installed
with the consent of the eligible customer-generator, at the expense
of the electric utility, and the additional metering shall be used
only to provide the information necessary to accurately bill or
credit the eligible customer-generator pursuant to subdivision (h),
or to collect solar or wind electric generating system performance
information for research purposes. If the existing electrical meter
of an eligible customer-generator is not capable of measuring the
flow of electricity in two directions, the eligible
customer-generator shall be responsible for all expenses involved in
purchasing and installing a meter that is able to measure electricity
flow in two directions. If an additional meter or meters are
installed, the net energy metering calculation shall yield a result
identical to that of a single meter. An eligible customer-generator
that is receiving service other than through the standard contract or
tariff may elect to receive service through the standard contract or
tariff until the electric utility reaches the generation limit set
forth in this paragraph. Once the generation limit is reached, only
eligible customer-generators that had previously elected to receive
service pursuant to the standard contract or tariff have a right to
continue to receive service pursuant to the standard contract or
tariff. Eligibility for net energy metering does not limit an
eligible customer-generator's eligibility for any other rebate,
incentive, or credit provided by the electric utility, or pursuant to
any governmental program, including rebates and incentives provided
pursuant to the California Solar Initiative.
   (2) An electrical corporation shall include a provision in the net
energy metering contract or tariff requiring that any customer with
an existing electrical generating facility and meter who enters into
a new net energy metering contract shall provide an inspection report
to the electrical corporation, unless the electrical generating
facility and meter have been installed or inspected within the
previous three years. The inspection report shall be prepared by a
California-licensed contractor who is not the owner or operator of
the facility and meter. A California-licensed electrician shall
perform the inspection of the electrical portion of the facility and
meter.
   (3) (A) On an annual basis, beginning in 2003, every electric
utility shall make available to the ratemaking authority information
on the total rated generating capacity used by eligible
customer-generators that are customers of that provider in the
provider's service area and the net surplus electricity purchased by
the electric utility pursuant to this section.
   (B) An electric service provider operating pursuant to Section 394
shall make available to the ratemaking authority the information
required by this paragraph for each eligible customer-generator that
is their customer for each service area of an electric corporation,
local publicly owned electric utility, or electrical cooperative, in
which the eligible customer-generator has net energy metering.
   (C) The ratemaking authority shall develop a process for making
the information required by this paragraph available to electric
utilities, and for using that information to determine when, pursuant
to paragraphs (1) and (4), an electric utility is not obligated to
provide net energy metering to additional eligible
customer-generators in its service area.
   (4) An electric utility is not obligated to provide net energy
metering to additional eligible customer-generators in its service
area when the combined total peak demand of all electricity used by
eligible customer-generators served by all the electric utilities in
that service area furnishing net energy metering to eligible
customer-generators exceeds 5 percent of the aggregate customer peak
demand of those electric utilities.
   (5) By January 1, 2010, the commission, in consultation with the
Energy Commission, shall submit a report to the Governor and the
Legislature on the costs and benefits of net energy metering, wind
energy co-metering, and co-energy metering to participating customers
and nonparticipating customers and with options to replace the
economic costs and benefits of net energy metering, wind energy
co-metering, and co-energy metering with a mechanism that more
equitably balances the interests of participating and
nonparticipating customers, and that incorporates findings on the
economic and environmental costs and benefits of net metering.
   (d) Every electric utility shall make all necessary forms and
contracts for net energy metering and net surplus electricity
compensation service available for download from the Internet.
   (e) (1) Every electric utility shall ensure that requests for
establishment of net energy metering and net surplus electricity
compensation are processed in a time period not exceeding that for
similarly situated customers requesting new electric service, but not
to exceed 30 working days from the date it receives a completed
application form for net energy metering service or net surplus
electricity compensation, including a signed interconnection
agreement from an eligible customer-generator and the electric
inspection clearance from the governmental authority having
jurisdiction.
   (2) Every electric utility shall ensure that requests for an
interconnection agreement from an eligible customer-generator are
processed in a time period not to exceed 30 working days from the
date it receives a completed application form from the eligible
customer-generator for an interconnection agreement.
   (3) If an electric utility is unable to process a request within
the allowable timeframe pursuant to paragraph (1) or (2), it shall
notify the eligible customer-generator and the ratemaking authority
of the reason for its inability to process the request and the
expected completion date.
   (f) (1) If a customer participates in direct transactions pursuant
to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 365 with an electric
service provider that does not provide distribution service for the
direct transactions, the electric utility that provides distribution
service for the eligible customer-generator is not obligated to
provide net energy metering or net surplus electricity compensation
to the customer.
   (2) If a customer participates in direct transactions pursuant to
paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 365 with an electric
service provider, and the customer is an eligible customer-generator,
the electric utility that provides distribution service for the
direct transactions may recover from the customer's electric service
provider the incremental costs of metering and billing service
related to net energy metering and net surplus electricity
compensation in an amount set by the ratemaking authority.
   (g) Except for the time-variant kilowatthour pricing portion of
any tariff adopted by the commission pursuant to paragraph (4) of
subdivision (a) of Section 2851, each net energy metering contract or
tariff shall be identical, with respect to rate structure, all
retail rate components, and any monthly charges, to the contract or
tariff to which the same customer would be assigned if the customer
did not use an eligible solar or wind electrical generating facility,
except that eligible customer-generators shall not be assessed
standby charges on the electrical generating capacity or the
kilowatthour production of an eligible solar or wind electrical
generating facility. The charges for all retail rate components for
eligible customer-generators shall be based exclusively on the
customer-generator's net kilowatthour consumption over a 12-month
period, without regard to the eligible customer-generator's choice as
to from whom it purchases electricity that is not self-generated.
Any new or additional demand charge, standby charge, customer charge,
minimum monthly charge, interconnection charge, or any other charge
that would increase an eligible customer-generator's costs beyond
those of other customers who are not eligible customer-generators in
the rate class to which the eligible customer-generator would
otherwise be assigned if the customer did not own, lease, rent, or
otherwise operate an eligible solar or wind electrical generating
facility is contrary to the intent of this section, and shall not
form a part of net energy metering contracts or tariffs.
   (h) For eligible customer-generators, the net energy metering
calculation shall be made by measuring the difference between the
electricity supplied to the eligible customer-generator and the
electricity generated by the eligible customer-generator and fed back
to the electric grid over a 12-month period. The following rules
shall apply to the annualized net metering calculation:
   (1) The eligible residential or small commercial
customer-generator shall, at the end of each 12-month period
following the date of final interconnection of the eligible
customer-generator's system with an electric utility, and at each
anniversary date thereafter, be billed for electricity used during
that 12-month period. The electric utility shall determine if the
eligible residential or small commercial customer-generator was a net
consumer or a net surplus customer-generator during that period.
   (2) At the end of each 12-month period, where the electricity
supplied during the period by the electric utility exceeds the
electricity generated by the eligible residential or small commercial
customer-generator during that same period, the eligible residential
or small commercial customer-generator is a net electricity consumer
and the electric utility shall be owed compensation for the eligible
customer-generator's net kilowatthour consumption over that 12-month
period. The compensation owed for the eligible residential or small
commercial customer-generator's consumption shall be calculated as
follows:
   (A) For all eligible customer-generators taking service under
contracts or tariffs employing "baseline" and "over baseline" rates,
any net monthly consumption of electricity shall be calculated
according to the terms of the contract or tariff to which the same
customer would be assigned, or be eligible for, if the customer was
not an eligible customer-generator. If those same customer-generators
are net generators over a billing period, the net kilowatthours
generated shall be valued at the same price per kilowatthour as the
electric utility would charge for the baseline quantity of
electricity during that billing period, and if the number of
kilowatthours generated exceeds the baseline quantity, the excess
shall be valued at the same price per kilowatthour as the electric
utility would charge for electricity over the baseline quantity
during that billing period.
   (B) For all eligible customer-generators taking service under
contracts or tariffs employing time-of-use rates, any net monthly
consumption of electricity shall be calculated according to the terms
of the contract or tariff to which the same customer would be
assigned, or be eligible for, if the customer was not an eligible
customer-generator. When those same customer-generators are net
generators during any discrete time-of-use period, the net
kilowatthours produced shall be valued at the same price per
kilowatthour as the electric utility would charge for retail
kilowatthour sales during that same time-of-use period. If the
eligible customer-generator's time-of-use electrical meter is unable
to measure the flow of electricity in two
                    directions, paragraph (1) of subdivision (c)
shall apply.
   (C) For all eligible residential and small commercial
customer-generators and for each billing period, the net balance of
moneys owed to the electric utility for net consumption of
electricity or credits owed to the eligible customer-generator for
net generation of electricity shall be carried forward as a monetary
value until the end of each 12-month period. For all eligible
commercial, industrial, and agricultural customer-generators, the net
balance of moneys owed shall be paid in accordance with the electric
utility's normal billing cycle, except that if the eligible
commercial, industrial, or agricultural customer-generator is a net
electricity producer over a normal billing cycle, any excess
kilowatthours generated during the billing cycle shall be carried
over to the following billing period as a monetary value, calculated
according to the procedures set forth in this section, and appear as
a credit on the eligible commercial, industrial, or agricultural
customer-generator's account, until the end of the annual period when
paragraph (3) shall apply.
   (3) At the end of each 12-month period, where the electricity
generated by the eligible customer-generator during the 12-month
period exceeds the electricity supplied by the electric utility
during that same period, the eligible customer-generator is a net
surplus customer-generator and the electric utility shall, upon an
affirmative election by the eligible customer-generator, either (A)
provide net surplus electricity compensation for any net surplus
electricity generated during the prior 12-month period, or (B) allow
the eligible customer-generator to apply the net surplus electricity
as a credit for kilowatthours subsequently supplied by the electric
utility to the surplus customer-generator. For an eligible
customer-generator that does not affirmatively elect to receive
service pursuant to net surplus electricity compensation, the
electric utility shall retain any excess kilowatthours generated
during the prior 12-month period. The eligible customer-generator not
affirmatively electing to receive service pursuant to net surplus
electricity compensation shall not be owed any compensation for the
net surplus electricity unless the electric utility enters into a
purchase agreement with the eligible customer-generator for those
excess kilowatthours. Every electric utility shall, by January 31,
2010, provide notice to eligible customer-generators that they are
eligible to receive net surplus electricity compensation for net
surplus electricity, that they must elect to receive net surplus
electricity compensation, and that the 12-month period commences when
the electric utility receives the eligible customer-generator's
election. The commission may, for an electric utility that is an
electrical corporation or electrical cooperative, adopt requirements
for providing notice and the manner by which eligible
customer-generators may elect to receive net surplus electricity
compensation.
   (4) (A) The ratemaking authority shall, by January 1, 2011,
establish a net surplus electricity compensation valuation to
compensate the net surplus customer-generator for the value of net
surplus electricity generated by the net surplus customer-generator.
The commission shall establish the valuation in a ratemaking
proceeding. The ratemaking authority for a local publicly owned
electric utility shall establish the valuation in a public
proceeding. The net surplus electricity compensation valuation shall
be established so as to provide the net surplus customer-generator
just and reasonable compensation for the value of net surplus
electricity, while leaving other ratepayers unaffected. The
ratemaking authority shall determine whether the compensation will
include, where appropriate justification exists, either or both of
the following components:
   (i) The value of the electricity itself.
   (ii) The value of the renewable attributes of the electricity.
   (B) In establishing the rate pursuant to subparagraph (A), the
ratemaking authority shall ensure that the rate does not result in a
shifting of costs between solar customer-generators and other bundled
service customers.
   (5) (A) Upon adoption of the net surplus electricity compensation
rate by the ratemaking authority, any renewable energy credit, as
defined in Section 399.12, for net surplus electricity purchased by
the electric utility shall belong to the electric utility. Any
renewable energy credit associated with electricity generated by the
eligible customer-generator that is utilized by the eligible
customer-generator shall remain the property of the eligible
customer-generator.
   (B) Upon adoption of the net surplus electricity compensation rate
by the ratemaking authority, the net surplus electricity purchased
by the electric utility shall count toward the electric utility's
renewables portfolio standard annual procurement targets for the
purposes of paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 399.15, or
for a local publicly owned electric utility, the renewables portfolio
standard annual procurement targets established pursuant to Section
387.
   (6) The electric utility shall provide every eligible residential
or small commercial customer-generator with net electricity
consumption and net surplus electricity generation information with
each regular bill. That information shall include the current
monetary balance owed the electric utility for net electricity
consumed, or the net surplus electricity generated, since the last
12-month period ended. Notwithstanding this subdivision, an electric
utility shall permit that customer to pay monthly for net energy
consumed.
   (7) If an eligible residential or small commercial
customer-generator terminates the customer relationship with the
electric utility, the electric utility shall reconcile the eligible
customer-generator's consumption and production of electricity during
any part of a 12-month period following the last reconciliation,
according to the requirements set forth in this subdivision, except
that those requirements shall apply only to the months since the most
recent 12-month bill.
   (8) If an electric service provider or electric utility providing
net energy metering to a residential or small commercial
customer-generator ceases providing that electric service to that
customer during any 12-month period, and the customer-generator
enters into a new net energy metering contract or tariff with a new
electric service provider or electric utility, the 12-month period,
with respect to that new electric service provider or electric
utility, shall commence on the date on which the new electric service
provider or electric utility first supplies electric service to the
customer-generator.
   (i) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this section, the
following provisions shall apply to an eligible customer-generator
with a capacity of more than 10 kilowatts, but not exceeding one
megawatt, that receives electric service from a local publicly owned
electric utility that has elected to utilize a co-energy metering
program unless the local publicly owned electric utility chooses to
provide service for eligible customer-generators with a capacity of
more than 10 kilowatts in accordance with subdivisions (g) and (h):
   (1) The eligible customer-generator shall be required to utilize a
meter, or multiple meters, capable of separately measuring
electricity flow in both directions. All meters shall provide
time-of-use measurements of electricity flow, and the customer shall
take service on a time-of-use rate schedule. If the existing meter of
the eligible customer-generator is not a time-of-use meter or is not
capable of measuring total flow of energy in both directions, the
eligible customer-generator shall be responsible for all expenses
involved in purchasing and installing a meter that is both
time-of-use and able to measure total electricity flow in both
directions. This subdivision shall not restrict the ability of an
eligible customer-generator to utilize any economic incentives
provided by a governmental agency or an electric utility to reduce
its costs for purchasing and installing a time-of-use meter.
   (2) The consumption of electricity from the local publicly owned
electric utility shall result in a cost to the eligible
customer-generator to be priced in accordance with the standard rate
charged to the eligible customer-generator in accordance with the
rate structure to which the customer would be assigned if the
customer did not use an eligible solar or wind electrical generating
facility. The generation of electricity provided to the local
publicly owned electric utility shall result in a credit to the
eligible customer-generator and shall be priced in accordance with
the generation component, established under the applicable structure
to which the customer would be assigned if the customer did not use
an eligible solar or wind electrical generating facility.
   (3) All costs and credits shall be shown on the eligible
customer-generator's bill for each billing period. In any months in
which the eligible customer-generator has been a net consumer of
electricity calculated on the basis of value determined pursuant to
paragraph (2), the customer-generator shall owe to the local publicly
owned electric utility the balance of electricity costs and credits
during that billing period. In any billing period in which the
eligible customer-generator has been a net producer of electricity
calculated on the basis of value determined pursuant to paragraph
(2), the local publicly owned electric utility shall owe to the
eligible customer-generator the balance of electricity costs and
credits during that billing period. Any net credit to the eligible
customer-generator of electricity costs may be carried forward to
subsequent billing periods, provided that a local publicly owned
electric utility may choose to carry the credit over as a
kilowatthour credit consistent with the provisions of any applicable
contract or tariff, including any differences attributable to the
time of generation of the electricity. At the end of each 12-month
period, the local publicly owned electric utility may reduce any net
credit due to the eligible customer-generator to zero.
   (j) A solar or wind turbine electrical generating system, or a
hybrid system of both, used by an eligible customer-generator shall
meet all applicable safety and performance standards established by
the National Electrical Code, the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers, and accredited testing laboratories, including
Underwriters Laboratories and, where applicable, rules of the
commission regarding safety and reliability. A customer-generator
whose solar or wind turbine electrical generating system, or a hybrid
system of both, meets those standards and rules shall not be
required to install additional controls, perform or pay for
additional tests, or purchase additional liability insurance.
   (k) If the commission determines that there are cost or revenue
obligations for an electrical corporation, as defined in Section 218,
that may not be recovered from customer-generators acting pursuant
to this section, those obligations shall remain within the customer
class from which any shortfall occurred and may not be shifted to any
other customer class. Net energy metering and co-energy metering
customers shall not be exempt from the public goods charges imposed
pursuant to Article 7 (commencing with Section 381), Article 8
(commencing with Section 385), or Article 15 (commencing with Section
399) of Chapter 2.3 of Part 1. In its report to the Legislature, the
commission shall examine different methods to ensure that the public
goods charges remain nonbypassable.
   (l) A net energy metering, co-energy metering, or wind energy
co-metering customer shall reimburse the Department of Water
Resources for all charges that would otherwise be imposed on the
customer by the commission to recover bond-related costs pursuant to
an agreement between the commission and the Department of Water
Resources pursuant to Section 80110 of the Water Code, as well as the
costs of the department equal to the share of the department's
estimated net unavoidable power purchase contract costs attributable
to the customer. The commission shall incorporate the determination
into an existing proceeding before the commission, and shall ensure
that the charges are nonbypassable. Until the commission has made a
determination regarding the nonbypassable charges, net energy
metering, co-energy metering, and wind energy co-metering shall
continue under the same rules, procedures, terms, and conditions as
were applicable on December 31, 2002.
   (m) In implementing the requirements of subdivisions (k) and (
 l  ), an eligible customer-generator shall not be required
to replace its existing meter except as set forth in paragraph (1) of
subdivision (c), nor shall the electric utility require additional
measurement of usage beyond that which is necessary for customers in
the same rate class as the eligible customer-generator.
   (n) It is the intent of the Legislature that the Treasurer
incorporate net energy metering, including net surplus electricity
compensation, co-energy metering, and wind energy co-metering
projects undertaken pursuant to this section as sustainable building
methods or distributive energy technologies for purposes of
evaluating low-income housing projects.
  SEC. 270.  Section 2851 of the Public Utilities Code is amended to
read:
   2851.  (a) In implementing the California Solar Initiative, the
commission shall do all of the following:
   (1) The commission shall authorize the award of monetary
incentives for up to the first megawatt of alternating current
generated by solar energy systems that meet the eligibility criteria
established by the Energy Commission pursuant to Chapter 8.8
(commencing with Section 25780) of Division 15 of the Public
Resources Code. The commission shall determine the eligibility of a
solar energy system, as defined in Section 25781 of the Public
Resources Code, to receive monetary incentives until the time the
Energy Commission establishes eligibility criteria pursuant to
Section 25782. Monetary incentives shall not be awarded for solar
energy systems that do not meet the eligibility criteria. The
incentive level authorized by the commission shall decline each year
following implementation of the California Solar Initiative, at a
rate of no less than an average of 7 percent per year, and shall be
zero as of December 31, 2016. The commission shall adopt and publish
a schedule of declining incentive levels no less than 30 days in
advance of the first decline in incentive levels. The commission may
develop incentives based upon the output of electricity from the
system, provided those incentives are consistent with the declining
incentive levels of this paragraph and the incentives apply to only
the first megawatt of electricity generated by the system.
   (2) The commission shall adopt a performance-based incentive
program so that by January 1, 2008, 100 percent of incentives for
solar energy systems of 100 kilowatts or greater and at least 50
percent of incentives for solar energy systems of 30 kilowatts or
greater are earned based on the actual electrical output of the solar
energy systems. The commission shall encourage, and may require,
performance-based incentives for solar energy systems of less than 30
kilowatts. Performance-based incentives shall decline at a rate of
no less than an average of 7 percent per year. In developing the
performance-based incentives, the commission may:
   (A) Apply performance-based incentives only to customer classes
designated by the commission.
   (B) Design the performance-based incentives so that customers may
receive a higher level of incentives than under incentives based on
installed electrical capacity.
   (C) Develop financing options that help offset the installation
costs of the solar energy system, provided that this financing is
ultimately repaid in full by the consumer or through the application
of the performance-based rebates.
   (3) By January 1, 2008, the commission, in consultation with the
Energy Commission, shall require reasonable and cost-effective energy
efficiency improvements in existing buildings as a condition of
providing incentives for eligible solar energy systems, with
appropriate exemptions or limitations to accommodate the limited
financial resources of low-income residential housing.
   (4) Notwithstanding subdivision (g) of Section 2827, the
commission may develop a time-variant tariff that creates the maximum
incentive for ratepayers to install solar energy systems so that the
system's peak electricity production coincides with California's
peak electricity demands and that ensures that ratepayers receive due
value for their contribution to the purchase of solar energy systems
and customers with solar energy systems continue to have an
incentive to use electricity efficiently. In developing the
time-variant tariff, the commission may exclude customers
participating in the tariff from the rate cap for residential
customers for existing baseline quantities or usage by those
customers of up to 130 percent of existing baseline quantities, as
required by Section 80110 of the Water Code. Nothing in this
paragraph authorizes the commission to require time-variant pricing
for ratepayers without a solar energy system.
   (b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), in implementing the
California Solar Initiative, the commission may authorize the award
of monetary incentives for solar thermal and solar water heating
devices, in a total amount up to one hundred million eight hundred
thousand dollars ($100,800,000).
   (c) (1) In implementing the California Solar Initiative, the
commission shall not allocate more than fifty million dollars
($50,000,000) to research, development, and demonstration that
explores solar technologies and other distributed generation
technologies that employ or could employ solar energy for generation
or storage of electricity or to offset natural gas usage. Any program
that allocates additional moneys to research, development, and
demonstration shall be developed in collaboration with the Energy
Commission to ensure there is no duplication of efforts, and adopted
by the commission through a rulemaking or other appropriate public
proceeding. Any grant awarded by the commission for research,
development, and demonstration shall be approved by the full
commission at a public meeting. This subdivision does not prohibit
the commission from continuing to allocate moneys to research,
development, and demonstration pursuant to the self-generation
incentive program for distributed generation resources originally
established pursuant to Chapter 329 of the Statutes of 2000, as
modified pursuant to Section 379.6.
   (2) The Legislature finds and declares that a program that
provides a stable source of monetary incentives for eligible solar
energy systems will encourage private investment sufficient to make
solar technologies cost effective.
   (3) On or before June 30, 2009, and by June 30 of every year
thereafter, the commission shall submit to the Legislature an
assessment of the success of the California Solar Initiative program.
That assessment shall include the number of residential and
commercial sites that have installed solar thermal devices for which
an award was made pursuant to subdivision (b) and the dollar value of
the award, the number of residential and commercial sites that have
installed solar energy systems, the electrical generating capacity of
the installed solar energy systems, the cost of the program, total
electrical system benefits, including the effect on electrical
service rates, environmental benefits, how the program affects the
operation and reliability of the electrical grid, how the program has
affected peak demand for electricity, the progress made toward
reaching the goals of the program, whether the program is on schedule
to meet the program goals, and recommendations for improving the
program to meet its goals. If the commission allocates additional
moneys to research, development, and demonstration that explores
solar technologies and other distributed generation technologies
pursuant to paragraph (1), the commission shall include in the
assessment submitted to the Legislature, a description of the
program, a summary of each award made or project funded pursuant to
the program, including the intended purposes to be achieved by the
particular award or project, and the results of each award or
project.
   (d) (1) The commission shall not impose any charge upon the
consumption of natural gas, or upon natural gas ratepayers, to fund
the California Solar Initiative.
   (2) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any charge imposed
to fund the program adopted and implemented pursuant to this section
shall be imposed upon all customers not participating in the
California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) or family electric rate
assistance (FERA) programs as provided in paragraph (2), including
those residential customers subject to the rate cap required by
Section 80110 of the Water Code for existing baseline quantities or
usage up to 130 percent of existing baseline quantities of
electricity.
   (3) The costs of the program adopted and implemented pursuant to
this section may not be recovered from customers participating in the
California Alternate Rates for Energy or CARE program established
pursuant to Section 739.1, except to the extent that program costs
are recovered out of the nonbypassable system benefits charge
authorized pursuant to Section 399.8.
   (e) In implementing the California Solar Initiative, the
commission shall ensure that the total cost over the duration of the
program does not exceed three billion three hundred fifty million
eight hundred thousand dollars ($3,350,800,000). The financial
components of the California Solar Initiative shall consist of the
following:
   (1) Programs under the supervision of the commission funded by
charges collected from customers of San Diego Gas and Electric
Company, Southern California Edison Company, and Pacific Gas and
Electric Company. The total cost over the duration of these programs
shall not exceed two billion one hundred sixty-six million eight
hundred thousand dollars ($2,166,800,000) and includes moneys
collected directly into a tracking account for support of the
California Solar Initiative and moneys collected into other accounts
that are used to further the goals of the California Solar
Initiative.
   (2) Programs adopted, implemented, and financed in the amount of
seven hundred eighty-four million dollars ($784,000,000), by charges
collected by local publicly owned electric utilities pursuant to
Section 387.5. Nothing in this subdivision shall give the commission
power and jurisdiction with respect to a local publicly owned
electric utility or its customers.
   (3) Programs for the installation of solar energy systems on new
construction, administered by the Energy Commission pursuant to
Chapter 8.6 (commencing with Section 25740) of Division 15 of the
Public Resources Code, and funded by nonbypassable charges in the
amount of four hundred million dollars ($400,000,000), collected from
customers of San Diego Gas and Electric Company, Southern California
Edison Company, and Pacific Gas and Electric Company pursuant to
Article 15 (commencing with Section 399).
  SEC. 271.  Section 8381 of the Public Utilities Code is amended to
read:
   8381.  (a) For purposes of this section, "electrical consumption
data" means data about a customer's electrical usage that is made
available as part of an advanced metering infrastructure, and
includes the name, account number, or residence of the customer.
   (b) (1) A local publicly owned electric utility shall not share,
disclose, or otherwise make accessible to any third party a customer'
s electrical consumption data, except as provided in subdivision (e)
or upon the consent of the customer.
   (2) A local publicly owned electric utility shall not sell a
customer's electrical consumption data or any other personally
identifiable information for any purpose.
   (3) The local publicly owned electric utility or its contractors
shall not provide an incentive or discount to the customer for
accessing the customer's electrical consumption data without the
prior consent of the customer.
   (4) A local publicly owned electric utility that utilizes an
advanced metering infrastructure that allows a customer to access the
customer's electrical consumption data shall ensure that the
customer has an option to access that data without being required to
agree to the sharing of his or her personally identifiable
information, including electrical consumption data, with a third
party.
   (c) If a local publicly owned electric utility contracts with a
third party for a service that allows a customer to monitor his or
her electricity usage, and that third party uses the data for a
secondary commercial purpose, the contract between the local publicly
owned electric utility and the third party shall provide that the
third party prominently discloses that secondary commercial purpose
to the customer.
   (d) A local publicly owned electric utility shall use reasonable
security procedures and practices to protect a customer's unencrypted
electrical consumption data from unauthorized access, destruction,
use, modification, or disclosure, and prohibit the use of the data
for a secondary commercial purpose not related to the primary purpose
of the contract without the customer's consent.
   (e) (1) Nothing in this section shall preclude a local publicly
owned electric utility from using customer aggregate electrical
consumption data for analysis, reporting, or program management if
all information has been removed regarding the individual identity of
a customer.
   (2) Nothing in this section shall preclude a local publicly owned
electric utility from disclosing a customer's electrical consumption
data to a third party for system, grid, or operational needs, or the
implementation of demand response, energy management, or energy
efficiency programs, provided, for contracts entered into after
January 1, 2011, that the utility has required by contract that the
third party implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and
practices appropriate to the nature of the information, to protect
the personal information from unauthorized access, destruction, use,
modification, or disclosure.
   (3) Nothing in this section shall preclude a local publicly owned
electric utility from disclosing electrical consumption data as
required under state or federal law.
                                                           (f) If a
customer chooses to disclose his or her electrical consumption data
to a third party that is unaffiliated with, and has no other business
relationship with, the local publicly owned electric utility, the
utility shall not be responsible for the security of that data, or
its use or misuse.
  SEC. 272.  Section 100351 of the Public Utilities Code is amended
to read:
   100351.  Whenever the district acquires existing facilities from a
publicly or privately owned utility, either in proceedings in
eminent domain or otherwise, that has a pension plan in operation,
members and beneficiaries of the pension plan shall continue to have
the rights, privileges, benefits, obligations and status with respect
to the established system. The outstanding obligations and
liabilities of the public utility by reason of the pension plan shall
be considered and taken into account and allowance made therefor in
the purchase price of the public utility. The persons entitled to
pension benefits as provided for in this section and the benefits
which are provided shall be specified in the agreement or order by
which any public utility is acquired by the district.
  SEC. 273.  Section 69.5 of the Revenue and Taxation Code is amended
to read:
   69.5.  (a) (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of law,
pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 2 of Article XIII A of the
California Constitution, any person over the age of 55 years, or any
severely and permanently disabled person, who resides in property
that is eligible for the homeowners' exemption under subdivision (k)
of Section 3 of Article XIII of the California Constitution and
Section 218 may transfer, subject to the conditions and limitations
provided in this section, the base year value of that property to any
replacement dwelling of equal or lesser value that is located within
the same county and is purchased or newly constructed by that person
as his or her principal residence within two years of the sale by
that person of the original property, provided that the base year
value of the original property shall not be transferred to the
replacement dwelling until the original property is sold.
   (2) Notwithstanding the limitation in paragraph (1) requiring that
the original property and the replacement dwelling be located in the
same county, this limitation shall not apply in any county in which
the county board of supervisors, after consultation with local
affected agencies within the boundaries of the county, adopts an
ordinance making the provisions of paragraph (1) also applicable to
situations in which replacement dwellings are located in that county
and the original properties are located in another county within this
state. The authorization contained in this paragraph shall be
applicable in a county only if the ordinance adopted by the board of
supervisors complies with all of the following requirements:
   (A) It is adopted only after consultation between the board of
supervisors and all other local affected agencies within the county's
boundaries.
   (B) It requires that all claims for transfers of base year value
from original property located in another county be granted if the
claims meet the applicable requirements of both subdivision (a) of
Section 2 of Article XIII A of the California Constitution and this
section.
   (C) It requires that all base year valuations of original property
located in another county and determined by its assessor be accepted
in connection with the granting of claims for transfers of base year
value.
   (D) It provides that its provisions are operative for a period of
not less than five years.
   (E) The ordinance specifies the date on and after which its
provisions shall be applicable. However, the date specified shall not
be earlier than November 9, 1988. The specified applicable date may
be a date earlier than the date the county adopts the ordinance.
   (b) In addition to meeting the requirements of subdivision (a),
any person claiming the property tax relief provided by this section
shall be eligible for that relief only if the following conditions
are met:
   (1) The claimant is an owner and a resident of the original
property either at the time of its sale, or at the time when the
original property was substantially damaged or destroyed by
misfortune or calamity, or within two years of the purchase or new
construction of the replacement dwelling.
   (2) The original property is eligible for the homeowners'
exemption, as the result of the claimant's ownership and occupation
of the property as his or her principal residence, either at the time
of its sale, or at the time when the original property was
substantially damaged or destroyed by misfortune or calamity, or
within two years of the purchase or new construction of the
replacement dwelling.
   (3) At the time of the sale of the original property, the claimant
or the claimant's spouse who resides with the claimant is at least
55 years of age, or is severely and permanently disabled.
   (4) At the time of claiming the property tax relief provided by
subdivision (a), the claimant is an owner of a replacement dwelling
and occupies it as his or her principal place of residence and, as a
result thereof, the property is currently eligible for the homeowners'
exemption or would be eligible for the exemption except that the
property is already receiving the exemption because of an exemption
claim filed by the previous owner.
   (5) The original property of the claimant is sold by him or her
within two years of the purchase or new construction of the
replacement dwelling. For purposes of this paragraph, the purchase or
new construction of the replacement dwelling includes the purchase
of that portion of land on which the replacement building, structure,
or other shelter constituting a place of abode of the claimant will
be situated and that, pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision (g),
constitutes a part of the replacement dwelling.
   (6) The replacement dwelling, including that portion of land on
which it is situated that is specified in paragraph (5), is located
entirely within the same county as the claimant's original property.
   (7) The claimant has not previously been granted, as a claimant,
the property tax relief provided by this section, except that this
paragraph shall not apply to any person who becomes severely and
permanently disabled subsequent to being granted, as a claimant, the
property tax relief provided by this section for any person over the
age of 55 years. In order to prevent duplication of claims under this
section within this state, county assessors shall report quarterly
to the State Board of Equalization that information from claims filed
in accordance with subdivision (f) and from county records as is
specified by the board necessary to identify fully all claims under
this section allowed by assessors and all claimants who have thereby
received relief. The board may specify that the information include
all or a part of the names and social security numbers of claimants
and their spouses and the identity and location of the replacement
dwelling to which the claim applies. The information may be required
in the form of data processing media or other media and in a format
that is compatible with the recordkeeping processes of the counties
and the auditing procedures of the state.
   (c) The property tax relief provided by this section shall be
available if the original property or the replacement dwelling, or
both, of the claimant includes, but is not limited to, either of the
following:
   (1) A unit or lot within a cooperative housing corporation, a
community apartment project, a condominium project, or a planned unit
development. If the unit or lot constitutes the original property of
the claimant, the assessor shall transfer to the claimant's
replacement dwelling only the base year value of the claimant's unit
or lot and his or her share in any common area reserved as an
appurtenance of that unit or lot. If the unit or lot constitutes the
replacement dwelling of the claimant, the assessor shall transfer the
base year value of the claimant's original property only to the unit
or lot of the claimant and any share of the claimant in any common
area reserved as an appurtenance of that unit or lot.
   (2) A manufactured home or a manufactured home and any land owned
by the claimant on which the manufactured home is situated. For
purposes of this paragraph, "land owned by the claimant" includes a
pro rata interest in a resident-owned mobilehome park that is
assessed pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 62.1.
   (A) If the manufactured home or the manufactured home and the land
on which it is situated constitutes the claimant's original
property, the assessor shall transfer to the claimant's replacement
dwelling either the base year value of the manufactured home or the
base year value of the manufactured home and the land on which it is
situated, as appropriate. If the manufactured home dwelling that
constitutes the original property of the claimant includes an
interest in a resident-owned mobilehome park, the assessor shall
transfer to the claimant's replacement dwelling the base year value
of the claimant's manufactured home and his or her pro rata portion
of the real property of the park. No transfer of base year value
shall be made by the assessor of that portion of land that does not
constitute a part of the original property, as provided in paragraph
(4) of subdivision (g).
   (B) If the manufactured home or the manufactured home and the land
on which it is situated constitutes the claimant's replacement
dwelling, the assessor shall transfer the base year value of the
claimant's original property either to the manufactured home or the
manufactured home and the land on which it is situated, as
appropriate. If the manufactured home dwelling that constitutes the
replacement dwelling of the claimant includes an interest in a
resident-owned mobilehome park, the assessor shall transfer the base
year value of the claimant's original property to the manufactured
home of the claimant and his or her pro rata portion of the park. No
transfer of base year value shall be made by the assessor to that
portion of land that does not constitute a part of the replacement
dwelling, as provided in paragraph (3) of subdivision (g).
   This subdivision shall be subject to the limitations specified in
subdivision (d).
   (d) The property tax relief provided by this section shall be
available to a claimant who is the coowner of the original property,
as a joint tenant, a tenant in common, a community property owner, or
a present beneficiary of a trust subject to the following
limitations:
   (1) If a single replacement dwelling is purchased or newly
constructed by all of the coowners and each coowner retains an
interest in the replacement dwelling, the claimant shall be eligible
under this section whether or not any or all of the remaining
coowners would otherwise be eligible claimants.
   (2) If two or more replacement dwellings are separately purchased
or newly constructed by two or more coowners and more than one
coowner would otherwise be an eligible claimant, only one coowner
shall be eligible under this section. These coowners shall determine
by mutual agreement which one of them shall be deemed eligible.
   (3) If two or more replacement dwellings are separately purchased
or newly constructed by two coowners who held the original property
as community property, only the coowner who has attained the age of
55 years, or is severely and permanently disabled, shall be eligible
under this section. If both spouses are over 55 years of age, they
shall determine by mutual agreement which one of them is eligible.
   In the case of coowners whose original property is a multiunit
dwelling, the limitations imposed by paragraphs (2) and (3) shall
only apply to coowners who occupied the same dwelling unit within the
original property at the time specified in paragraph (2) of
subdivision (b).
   (e) Upon the sale of original property, the assessor shall
determine a new base year value for that property in accordance with
subdivision (a) of Section 2 of Article XIII A of the California
Constitution and Section 110.1, whether or not a replacement dwelling
is subsequently purchased or newly constructed by the former owner
or owners of the original property.
   This section shall not apply unless the transfer of the original
property is a change in ownership that either (1) subjects that
property to reappraisal at its current fair market value in
accordance with Section 110.1 or 5803 or (2) results in a base year
value determined in accordance with this section, Section 69, or
Section 69.3 because the property qualifies under this section,
Section 69, or Section 69.3 as a replacement dwelling or property.
   (f) (1) A claimant shall not be eligible for the property tax
relief provided by this section unless the claimant provides to the
assessor, on a form that shall be designed by the State Board of
Equalization and that the assessor shall make available upon request,
the following information:
   (A) The name and social security number of each claimant and of
any spouse of the claimant who is a record owner of the replacement
dwelling.
   (B) Proof that the claimant or the claimant's spouse who resided
on the original property with the claimant was, at the time of its
sale, at least 55 years of age, or severely and permanently disabled.
Proof of severe and permanent disability shall be considered a
certification, signed by a licensed physician and surgeon of
appropriate specialty, attesting to the claimant's severely and
permanently disabled condition. In the absence of available proof
that a person is over 55 years of age, the claimant shall certify
under penalty of perjury that the age requirement is met. In the case
of a severely and permanently disabled claimant either of the
following shall be submitted:
   (i) A certification, signed by a licensed physician or surgeon of
appropriate specialty that identifies specific reasons why the
disability necessitates a move to the replacement dwelling and the
disability-related requirements, including any locational
requirements, of a replacement dwelling. The claimant shall
substantiate that the replacement dwelling meets disability-related
requirements so identified and that the primary reason for the move
to the replacement dwelling is to satisfy those requirements. If the
claimant, or the claimant's spouse or guardian, so declares under
penalty of perjury, it shall be rebuttably presumed that the primary
purpose of the move to the replacement dwelling is to satisfy
identified disability-related requirements.
   (ii) The claimant's substantiation that the primary purpose of the
move to the replacement dwelling is to alleviate financial burdens
caused by the disability. If the claimant, or the claimant's spouse
or guardian, so declares under penalty of perjury, it shall be
rebuttably presumed that the primary purpose of the move is to
alleviate the financial burdens caused by the disability.
   (C) The address and, if known, the assessor's parcel number of the
original property.
   (D) The date of the claimant's sale of the original property and
the date of the claimant's purchase or new construction of a
replacement dwelling.
   (E) A statement by the claimant that he or she occupied the
replacement dwelling as his or her principal place of residence on
the date of the filing of his or her claim.
   (F) Any claim under this section shall be filed within three years
of the date the replacement dwelling was purchased or the new
construction of the replacement dwelling was completed subject to
subdivision (k) or (m).
   (2) A claim for transfer of base year value under this section
that is filed after the expiration of the filing period set forth in
subparagraph (F) of paragraph (1) shall be considered by the
assessor, subject to all of the following conditions:
   (A) Any base year value transfer granted pursuant to that claim
shall apply commencing with the lien date of the assessment year in
which the claim is filed.
   (B) The full cash value of the replacement property in the
assessment year described in subparagraph (A) shall be the base year
value of the real property in the assessment year in which the base
year value was transferred, factored to the assessment year described
in subparagraph (A) for both of the following:
   (i) Inflation as annually determined in accordance with paragraph
(1) of subdivision (a) of Section 51.
   (ii) Any subsequent new construction occurring with respect to the
subject real property that does not qualify for property tax relief
pursuant to the criteria set forth in subparagraphs (A) and (B) of
paragraph (4) of subdivision (h).
   (g) For purposes of this section:
   (1) "Person over the age of 55 years" means any person or the
spouse of any person who has attained the age of 55 years or older at
the time of the sale of the original property.
   (2) "Base year value of the original property" means its base year
value, as determined in accordance with Section 110.1, with the
adjustments permitted by subdivision (b) of Section 2 of Article XIII
A of the California Constitution and subdivision (f) of Section
110.1, determined as of the date immediately prior to the date that
the original property is sold by the claimant, or in the case where
the original property has been substantially damaged or destroyed by
misfortune or calamity and the owner does not rebuild on the original
property, determined as of the date immediately prior to the
misfortune or calamity.
   If the replacement dwelling is purchased or newly constructed
after the transfer of the original property, "base year value of the
original property" also includes any inflation factor adjustments
permitted by subdivision (f) of Section 110.1 for the period
subsequent to the sale of the original property. The base year or
years used to compute the "base year value of the original property"
shall be deemed to be the base year or years of any property to which
that base year value is transferred pursuant to this section.
   (3) "Replacement dwelling" means a building, structure, or other
shelter constituting a place of abode, whether real property or
personal property, that is owned and occupied by a claimant as his or
her principal place of residence, and any land owned by the claimant
on which the building, structure, or other shelter is situated. For
purposes of this paragraph, land constituting a part of a replacement
dwelling includes only that area of reasonable size that is used as
a site for a residence, and "land owned by the claimant" includes
land for which the claimant either holds a leasehold interest
described in subdivision (c) of Section 61 or a land purchase
contract. Each unit of a multiunit dwelling shall be considered a
separate replacement dwelling. For purposes of this paragraph, "area
of reasonable size that is used as a site for a residence" includes
all land if any nonresidential uses of the property are only
incidental to the use of the property as a residential site. For
purposes of this paragraph, "land owned by the claimant" includes an
ownership interest in a resident-owned mobilehome park that is
assessed pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 62.1.
   (4) "Original property" means a building, structure, or other
shelter constituting a place of abode, whether real property or
personal property, that is owned and occupied by a claimant as his or
her principal place of residence, and any land owned by the claimant
on which the building, structure, or other shelter is situated. For
purposes of this paragraph, land constituting a part of the original
property includes only that area of reasonable size that is used as a
site for a residence, and "land owned by the claimant" includes land
for which the claimant either holds a leasehold interest described
in subdivision (c) of Section 61 or a land purchase contract. Each
unit of a multiunit dwelling shall be considered a separate original
property. For purposes of this paragraph, "area of
