           COMMENTS  

        1)Purpose  .  This is a spot bill that will be used to approve the  
            final collective bargaining agreement reached this year  
            between the state and one of the bargaining units.  This bill  
            has an urgency clause so it will be operative as soon as  
            enacted.  A number of MOUs between the state and employee  
            bargaining units expire on or close to July 1, 2013.  

        2)Background  .  Existing law requires, under the State  
            Employee-Employer Relations Act (the Dills Act), collective  
            bargaining agreements (MOUs) that are negotiated between the  
            state and exclusive representatives of each of the 21 state  
            bargaining units be ratified by the Legislature.

        3)There is no registered opposition to this bill.
