           SUBJECT  :    Budget Act of 2013:  Corrections

           SOURCE  :     Author

           DIGEST  :    This bill provides for statutory changes necessary to  
          enact the corrections provisions of the Budget Act of 2013.

           Assembly Amendments  delete the Senate version of the bill, which  
          expressed legislative intent to enact statutory changes related  
          to the Budget Act of 2013, and instead add the current language.

           ANALYSIS  :    This bill makes all of the following statutory  

          1.  Correctional healthcare re-organization  .  This bill adds  
             Health Care Services to the statutory structure and  
             responsibilities of the Department of Corrections and  
             Rehabilitation (CDCR).  Existing law provides for two  
             undersecretaries within the CDCR:  one for administration and  
             offender services and one for operations.  This bill adds a  
             third undersecretary for health care services, to be  


                                                                      SB 74

             confirmed by the Senate and serve at the pleasure of the  
             Governor.  This bill also creates under the new  
             undersecretary, The Division of Health Care Operations and  
             the Division of Health Care Policy and Administration.  This  
             bill creates a director for each of these new divisions, to  
             be confirmed by the Senate and to serve at the pleasure of  
             the Governor.

          2.  Structure of the Board of State and Community Corrections  
             (BSCC)  .  Existing law establishes the composition of the BSCC  
             with 12 members including two CDCR executives, one being the  
             Secretary who serves as the chair of the BSCC, two sheriffs,  
             a county supervisor or county administrator, two chief  
             probation officers, a judge, a chief of police, two community  
             providers of treatment services and a member of the public.   
             This bill restructures the BSCC, as of July 1, 2013, with 13  
             members including all members included in the existing  
             composition, plus the creation of a chair to be appointed by  
             the Governor with Senate confirmation, and to serve  
             full-time.  The existing chair, the Secretary of CDCR, will  
             remain as a board member.  The new full-time chair is  
             entitled to receive compensation set by the Department of  
             Human Resources.

          3.  BSCC executive committee financial interest exemption  .   
             Specifies that members of a committee created by the BSCC,  
             including board members, have no financial interest in any  
             contract made by the board including grants and bond  

          4.  Co-location of Office of Inspector General (OIG) staff with  
             CDCR Office of Internal Affairs (OIA) staff and OIG technical  
             fixes  .  Both the OIG and the CDCR's OIA perform oversight  
             activities related to CDCR staff and management.  The OIA is  
             internal, the OIG is external and independent.  As part of a  
             court remedy of a lawsuit against CDCR pertaining to  
             use-of-force, certain OIG staff is currently co-located with  
             OIA staff.  This bill codifies this co-location and makes  
             other technical changes consistent with the reorganization of  
             the OIG, associated with the 2011 Budget Act.

          5.  Local jail facility financing technical correction  .  A  
             trailer bill associated with the 2012 Budget Act, SB 1022  
             (Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee, Chapter 42,  



                                                                      SB 74

             Statutes of 2012) authorized $500,000,000 in bond funding for  
             local jail construction grants.  This bill makes a technical  
             revision to correct a code reference error. 

          6.  Statewide budget packages and advance planning  .  Appropriates  
             $750,000 from the 1990 Prison Construction Fund to the CDCR  
             for statewide budget packages and advance planning in CDCR's  
             capital outlay program during the 2013-14 fiscal year.  The  
             funds are to be allocated by CDCR, upon approval of the  
             Department of Finance, to develop design and cost information  
             for new projects for which funds have not been previously  
             appropriated, but for which preliminary plans funds, working  
             drawing funds, or working drawings and construction funds are  
             expected to be included in the subsequent budget acts.
