          Vote:     21

           ASSEMBLY FLOOR:  77-0, 2/29/16 - See last page for vote

           SUBJECT:   Budget Act of 2015


          SOURCE:    Author


          DIGEST:  This bill amends and adds appropriations to the Budget  
          Act of 2015.




          Assembly Amendments delete the Senate version of the bill, which  
          expressed legislative intent to enact statutory changes related  
          to the Budget Act of 2015, and instead add the current language.


          ANALYSIS:   This bill makes the following appropriations:

          1)Transfers from the General Fund reserve no later than January  
            1, 2017, the amount of $173 million, and allocates funds as  
            follows: 

             a)   $148 million for specified local Traffic Congestion  








                                                                      SB 86  
                                                                    Page  2


               Relief projects;
             b)   $11 million for trade corridor improvements;
             c)   $9 million for the Transit and Intercity Rail Capital  
               Program; and
             d)   $5 million for the State Highway Operations and  
               Protection Program.

          2)Supports fire recovery and debris removal for Lake and  
            Calaveras counties with $105 million in funding.

          3)Provides $240 million towards existing liabilities to prefund  
            health and dental benefits for state retirees. This funding  
            would be coupled with the Administration's efforts to have the  
            state and its employees to share equally in the prefunding of  
            retiree health benefits.

          4)Provides $1.85 million to the University of California for the  
            San Joaquin Valley Program in Medical Education (SJV PRIME)  
            over two years through June 30, 2017. The SJV PRIME program is  
            a collaboration between the UC Davis School of Medicine, UC  
            Merced and UC San Francisco-Fresno, that allows students to  
            enroll in the UC Davis Medical School and complete the  
            clinical portion of their degree in SJV clinics.
