          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 27, 2015


          Bill  
          Summary:  AB 1056 would enact the Second Chance Program, which  
          would require the Board of State and Community Corrections  
          (BSCC) to administer a competitive grant program using savings  
          resulting from the implementation of Proposition 47, the Safe  
          Neighborhoods and Schools Act of 2014, and other fund sources,  
          as specified. This bill would also extend the sunset date on the  
          Social Innovation Financing Program by two years to January 1,  
          2022.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  
           Minor workload impact to the BSCC to administer the specified  
            grant program and establish the Executive Steering Committee,  
            as Proposition 47 already requires the BSCC to administer a  
            grant program.
           Potentially significant increase in annual grant awards issued

            (Federal/State/Private funds), as the bill creates a new fund,  
            the Second Chance Fund, which is continuously appropriated,  
            and may receive funds not only from the savings resulting from  
            Proposition 47, but also from other federal, state, local, or  
            private sources. 
           Potential future cost pressure (Special Fund/General Fund) due  
            to the extension of the sunset date. According to the BSCC, $5  
            million was appropriated from the Recidivism Reduction Fund  
            for this program, with funding estimated to be fully allocated  
            to the three local county projects by June 30, 2016.


          Author  
          Amendments:  Remove the specific makeup of executive steering  
          committee membership and extend the sunset on the Social  
          Innovation Financing Program for two years.
