          Bill  
          Summary:  SB 1064 would eliminate the sunset date on the  
          discretionary Sexually Exploited Minors Pilot Project in Alameda  
          County, and expand the program statewide to operate  
          indefinitely. This bill would expand the definition of  
          "commercially sexually exploited minor" to include, among  
          others, minors who have been adjudged dependents of the juvenile  
          court. Additionally, this bill would provide that a minor who is  
          the subject of a petition to adjudge him or her as a dependent  
          of the juvenile court is presumed to be a commercially sexually  
          exploited minor, as specified.


          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                      adopted by the committee on May 27, 2016




          Fiscal  
          Impact:  
            Sexually Exploited Minors Project sunset elimination  :   







          SB 1064 (Hancock)                                      Page 1 of

            Potentially minor to moderate ongoing increase in local costs  
            (Local Funds/General Fund*) to district attorneys of Los  
            Angeles and Alameda for additional workload, as programs are  
            already operating in these counties. As funding is contingent  
            upon local funding only for the establishment of a program in  
            each county, ongoing future operational costs are potentially  
            eligible to be supported by other fund sources.   
            CSEC Program  :  Potential future cost pressure (General Fund*)  
            on the Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC)  
            Program, which is administered by the DSS, to the extent the  
            additional services and activities by district attorneys are  
            incorporated into county plans submitted for participation  
            under the program made eligible under the expanded definition  
            of "commercially sexually exploited minors" to include  
            juvenile dependents. The Fiscal Year (FY) 2016-17 Governor's  
            Budget reflects 38 counties electing to participate in the  
            program, and $14 million General Fund provided for support of  
            this program. 
            *Proposition 30 (2012)  :  Exempts the State from mandate  
            reimbursement for realigned responsibilities for "public  
            safety services" including the training of law enforcement  
            personnel and attorneys assigned to criminal proceedings, and  
            the provision of child welfare services to prevent  
            exploitation, however, legislation enacted after September 30,  
            2012, that has an overall effect of increasing the costs  
            already borne by a local agency for public safety services  
            apply to local agencies only to the extent that the State  
            provides annual funding for the cost increase.  


          Committee  
          Amendments:  Strike the expansion of the pilot program statewide  
          and instead remove the sunset date on the pilot programs in the  
          counties of Alameda and Los Angeles, as amended to expand the  
          definition of "commercially sexually exploited minor."
