An act to amend Section 13308 of the Government Code, relating to
the state budget.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 15, DeSaulnier. State budget.
Existing law requires the Governor to submit to the Legislature,
within the first 10 days of each calendar year, a budget for the
ensuing fiscal year. Under existing law, the budget is required to
contain a complete plan and itemized statements of all proposed
expenditures and all estimated revenues of the state for the ensuing
fiscal year, together with a comparison with the actual revenues and
expenditures for the last completed fiscal year, the estimated
revenues and expenditures for the existing fiscal year, and the
budgeted revenues and expenditures for the next fiscal year. Existing
law further requires the Director of Finance to provide to the
Legislature, on or before May 14 of each year, an estimate of General
Fund revenues for the current fiscal year and the ensuing fiscal
year, any proposals to reduce expenditures to reflect updated revenue
estimates, and specified proposed adjustments to the Governor's
Budget.
This bill would require the Director of Finance to submit, at the
time of the submission of the budget by the Governor, or as soon
thereafter as feasible, total recommended state General Fund
expenditures and estimated state revenues, which include (1) an
estimate of total General Fund resources, including any proposed
resources, available for state General Fund expenditures for the
budget year and the succeeding 3 fiscal years, (2) a 5-year capital
infrastructure plan, (3) a projection of anticipated state
expenditures for the budget year and the succeeding 3 fiscal years,
and (4) to the extent possible, projections applicable to the budget
year from the previous 4 enacted Budget Act projections. The bill
would require specified parts of this information to be updated, as
soon as feasible, within specified times.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

SECTION 1. Section 13308 of the Government Code is amended to
read:
13308. (a) (1) At the time of the submission of the Governor's
Budget pursuant to Section 12 of Article IV of the California

estimated, including any proposed, state General Fund revenues that
shall include the following:
(A) The five-year capital infrastructure plan required by Section
13102.
(B) An estimate of the total General Fund resources, including any
proposed resources, available for the state General Fund

provided pursuant to subparagraphs (B) and (C) of paragraph (1) shall
be accompanied by the projections applicable to the budget year from
the previous four enacted Budget Act projections.

pursuant to Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution,
or to reflect caseload enrollment or population changes.
(f) The Director of Finance may authorize suspension for the
current fiscal year of any provision of this section not sooner than
30 days after notification in writing of the necessity therefor to
the chairperson of the committee in each house that considers the
State Budget and the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget
