AB 2258 (Caballero) Local agency formation commissions: grant program.

Position:Watch
Status:Vetoed by Governor
Summary:

Would require the Strategic Growth Council, until January 1, 2024, to establish and administer a local agency formation commissions grant program for the payment of costs associated with initiating and completing the dissolution of  districts listed as inactive, the payment of costs associated with a study of the services provided within a county by a public agency, and for other specified purposes, including the initiation of an action, based on determinations found in the study, as approved by the commission.

Would specify application submission, reimbursement, and reporting requirements for a local agency formation commission to receive grants pursuant to the bill.

Would require the council, after consulting with the California Association of Local Agency Formation Commissions, to develop and adopt guidelines, timelines, and application and reporting criteria for development and implementation of the program, as specified, and would exempt these guidelines, timelines, and criteria from the rulemaking provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act.

The bill would make funding for the program subject to appropriation in the annual Budget Act.

Comments:

To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 2258 without my signature.

Subject to an appropriation in the annual Budget Act, this bill requires the Strategic Growth Council to establish and administer a grant program to fund various activities performed by Local Agency Formation Commissions.

This new spending proposal should be evaluated in the annual budget process where it can be weighed together with the state's other spending priorities.

Sincerely,


Edmund G. Brown Jr.
