This act shall be known and may be cited as the Budget Act of 2014. SB 855 Budget Trailer Bill for Human Services SECTION 1. Section 17415 of the Family Code is amended to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT – CHILD SUPPORT This Section would repeal the automatic assignment of Child Support to the State of California for safety net and child only cases. The child support received by the family would be deducted from their meager grant of about 200,000 cases. It is estimated that 10 to 20% will receive sporadic child support payments. Also see Section 75 that is related to this issue. This change can have a negative impact on families in that counties will anticipate the receipt of child support that is not actually received by the family. This can result in homelessness and distress to families already living in deep poverty. 17415. (a) It shall be the duty of the county welfare department to refer all cases in which a parent is absent from the home, or in which the parents are unmarried and parentage has not been established by the completion and filing of a voluntary declaration of paternity pursuant to Section 7573 or a court of competent jurisdiction, to the local child support agency immediately at the time the application for public assistance, including Medi-Cal benefits, or certificate of eligibility, is signed by the applicant or recipient, except as provided in Section 17552 of this code and Section Sections 11477 and 11477.04 of the Welfare and Institutions Code. If an applicant is found to be ineligible, the applicant shall be notified in writing that the referral of the case to the local child support agency may be terminated at the applicant’s request. The county welfare department shall cooperate with the local child support agency and shall make available all pertinent information as provided in pursuant to Section 17505. (b) Upon referral from the county welfare department, the local child support agency shall investigate the question of nonsupport or paternity and shall take all steps necessary to obtain child support for the needy child, enforce spousal support as part of the state plan under Section 17604, and determine paternity in the case of a child born out of wedlock. Upon the advice of the county welfare department that a child is being considered for adoption, the local child support agency shall delay the investigation and other actions with respect to the case until advised that the adoption is no longer under consideration. The granting of public assistance or Medi-Cal benefits to an applicant shall not be delayed or contingent upon investigation by the local child support agency. 2014-2015 State Budget Bill (c) In cases where Medi-Cal benefits are the only assistance provided, the local child support agency shall provide child and spousal support services unless the recipient of the services notifies the local child support agency that only services related to securing health insurance benefits are requested. (d) Where Whenever a court order has been obtained, any contractual agreement for support between the local child support agency or the county welfare department and the noncustodial parent shall be deemed null and void to the extent that it is not consistent with the court order. (e) Whenever a family which that has been receiving public assistance, including Medi-Cal, ceases to receive assistance, including Medi-Cal, the local child support agency shall, to the extent required by federal regulations, continue to enforce support payments from the noncustodial parent until the individual on whose behalf the enforcement efforts are made sends written notice to the local child support agency requesting that enforcement services be discontinued. (f) The local child support agency shall, where when appropriate, utilize reciprocal arrangements adopted with other states in securing support from an absent parent. In individual cases where utilization of reciprocal arrangements has proven ineffective, the local child support agency may forward to the Attorney General a request to utilize federal courts in order to obtain or enforce orders for child or spousal support. If reasonable efforts to collect amounts assigned pursuant to Section 11477 of the Welfare and Institutions Code have failed, the local child support agency may request that the case be forwarded to the United States Treasury Department for collection in accordance with federal regulations. The Attorney General, where when appropriate, shall forward these requests to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, or a designated representative. SEC. 67. Section 11320.32 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT – None. This section would keep the temporary assistance program in place until 2016. 11320.32. (a) The department shall administer a voluntary Temporary Assistance Program (TAP) for current and future CalWORKs recipients who meet the exemption criteria for work participation activities set forth in Section 11320.3, and are not single parents who have a child under the age of one year. Temporary Assistance Program recipients shall be entitled to the same assistance payments and other benefits as recipients under the CalWORKs program. The purpose of this program is to provide cash assistance and other benefits to eligible families without any federal restrictions or requirements and without any adverse impact on recipients. The Temporary Assistance Program shall commence no later than October 1, 2014. 2016. (b) CalWORKs recipients who meet the exemption criteria for work participation activities set forth in subdivision (b) of Section 11320.3, and are not single parents with a child under the age of one year, shall have the option of receiving grant payments, child care, and transportation services from the Temporary Assistance Program. The department shall notify all CalWORKs recipients and applicants meeting the exemption criteria specified in subdivision (b) of Section 11320.3, except for single parents with a child under the age of one year, of their option to receive benefits under the Temporary Assistance Program. Absent written indication that these recipients or applicants choose not to receive assistance from the Temporary Assistance Program, the department shall enroll CalWORKs recipients and applicants into the program. However, exempt volunteers shall remain in the CalWORKs program unless they affirmatively indicate, in writing, their interest in enrolling in the Temporary Assistance Program. A Temporary Assistance Program recipient who no longer meets the exemption criteria set forth in Section 11320.3 shall be enrolled in the CalWORKs program. (c) Funding for grant payments, child care, transportation, and eligibility determination activities for families receiving benefits under the Temporary Assistance Program shall be funded with General Fund resources that do not count toward the state’s maintenance of effort requirements under clause (i) of subparagraph (B) of paragraph (7) of subdivision (a) of Section 609 of Title 42 of the United States Code, up to the caseload level equivalent to the amount of funding provided for this purpose in the annual Budget Act. (d) It is the intent of the Legislature that recipients shall have and maintain access to the hardship exemption and the services necessary to begin and increase participation in welfare-to-work activities, regardless of their county of origin, and that the number of recipients exempt under subdivision (b) of Section 11320.3 not significantly increase due to factors other than changes in caseload characteristics. All relevant state law applicable to CalWORKs recipients shall also apply to families funded under this section. Nothing in this This section modifies does not modify the criteria for exemption in Section 11320.3. (e) To the extent that this section is inconsistent with federal regulations regarding implementation of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, the department may amend the funding structure for exempt families to ensure consistency with these regulations, not later than 30 days after providing written notification to the chair of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee and the chairs of the appropriate policy and fiscal committees of the Legislature. SEC. 68. Section 11322.8 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT This will align state statute relative to hours of participation to the federal regulations that provide weekly hours requirement to be a weekly average within a month and not a fixed number of hours for each week. See CFR 45, 261.31. It will have no impact on beneficiaries. 11322.8. (a) For a recipient required to participate in accordance with paragraph (1) of 11322.8.

However, both parents in a two-parent assistance unit may contribute to the 35 hours. (b) For a recipient required to participate in accordance with paragraph (3) of subdivision (a) of Section 11322.85, the following shall apply: (1) Unless otherwise exempt, an adult recipient in a one-parent assistance unit shall participate in welfare-to-work activities for an average of at least 30 hours per week, week during the month, subject to the special rules and limitations described in Section 607(c)(1)(A) of Title 42 of the United States Code as of the operative date of this section, as provided in subdivision (c). January 1, 2013. (2) Unless otherwise exempt, an adult recipient in a one-parent assistance unit that includes a child under six years of age shall participate in welfare-to-work activities for an average of at least 20 hours each week, per week during the month, as described in Section 607(c)(2)(B) of Title 42 of the United States Code as of the operative date of this section, as provided in subdivision (c).January 1, 2013.

January 1, 2013. (c)This section shall become operative on January 1, 2013. SEC. 69. Section 11325.24 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT This will clarify that the Legislator never intended to use the Family Stabilization Component of the WtW program to impose WtW sanctions upon impoverished families of California that results in their living at 19% of the supplemental poverty level. This would repeal a current ACL that would allow counties to impose WtW sanctions for participants who are referred to the Family Stabilization Program and are fail to participate therein due to the severe distress that such families find themselves in. 11325.24. (a) If, in the course of appraisal pursuant to Section 11325.2 or at any point during an individual’s participation in welfare-to-work activities in accordance with paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 11322.85, it is determined that a recipient meets the criteria described in subdivision (b), the recipient shall be eligible to participate in family stabilization. (b) (1) A recipient shall be eligible to participate in family stabilization if the county determines that his or her family is experiencing an identified situation or crisis that is destabilizing the family and would interfere with participation in welfare-to-work activities and services. (2) A situation or a crisis that is destabilizing the family in accordance with paragraph (1) may include, but shall not be limited to: (A) Homelessness or imminent risk of homelessness. (B) A lack of safety due to domestic violence. (C) Untreated or undertreated behavioral needs, including mental health or substance abuse-related needs. (c) Family stabilization shall include intensive case management and services designed to support the family in overcoming the situation or crisis, which may include, but are not limited to, welfare-to-work activities. (d) Funds allocated for family stabilization in accordance with this section shall be in addition to, and independent of, the county allocations made pursuant to Section 15204.2. (e) Funds allocated for family stabilization in accordance with this section, or the county allocations made pursuant to Section 15204.2, may be used to provide housing and other needed services to a family during any month that a family is participating in family stabilization. (e) (f) Each county shall submit to the department a plan, as defined by the department, regarding how it intends to implement the provisions of this section and shall report information to the department, including, but not limited to, the number of recipients served pursuant to this section, information regarding the services provided, outcomes for the families served, and any lack of availability of services. The department shall provide an update regarding this information to the Legislature during the 2014 15 budget process. (f)This section shall become operative on January 1, 2014. (g) It is the intent of the Legislature that family stabilization is a voluntary component intended to provide needed services and constructive interventions for parents and to assist in barrier removal for families facing very difficult needs. Participants in family stabilization are encouraged to participate, but the Legislature does not intend that parents be sanctioned as part of their experience in this program component. The Legislature further intends that recipients refusing or unable to follow their family stabilization plans without good cause be returned to the traditional welfare-to-work program. SEC. 70. Article 3.3 (commencing with Section 11330) is added to Chapter 2 of Part 3 of Division 9 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT This article would create a housing program that is not an entitlement, but a county option to assist the homeless CalWORKs families. This section has the potential help many homeless families. Article 3.3. CalWORKs Housing Support 11330. The Legislature finds and declares all of the following: (a) Stable housing is a fundamental component of self-sufficiency and child well-being. (b) According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, residential stability is a necessary precursor to effectively addressing barriers that inhibit self-sufficiency, and research is clear that children who lack safe and stable housing demonstrate worse academic and social outcomes. (c) Housing support in the CalWORKs program is minimal and families struggle to find and retain safe, affordable, and stable housing. (d) Expanding homeless and housing support in the CalWORKs program would help meet a critical need for families working to achieve self-sufficiency. 11330.5. (a) A recipient shall be eligible to receive CalWORKs housing supports if the county determines that his or her family is experiencing homelessness or housing instability that would be a barrier to self-sufficiency or child well-being. (b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), this section does not create an entitlement to housing supports, which are intended to be a service to CalWORKs families and not a form of assistance, to be provided to families at the discretion of the county. (c) It is the intent of the Legislature that housing supports provided pursuant to this article utilize evidence-based models, including those established in the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program. Supports provided may include, but shall not be limited to, all of the following: (1) Financial assistance, including rental assistance, security deposits, utility payments, moving cost assistance, and motel and hotel vouchers. (2) Housing stabilization and relocation, including outreach and engagement, landlord recruitment, case management, housing search and placement, legal services, and credit repair. (d) The asset limit threshold specified in subdivision (f) of Section 11450 shall not be used to determine a family’s eligibility for receipt of housing supports provided pursuant to this article. (e) Funds appropriated for purposes of this article shall be allocated to participating counties by the State Department of Social Services according to an allocation methodology developed by the department in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association. (f) The department, in consultation with the County Welfare Directors Association and other stakeholders, shall develop each of the following: (1) The criteria by which counties may opt to participate in providing housing supports to eligible CalWORKs recipients pursuant to this article. (2) The proportion of funding to be expended on reasonable and appropriate administrative activities to minimize overhead and maximize services. (3) Tracking and reporting procedures. (g) The department, in consultation with appropriate legislative staff and the County Welfare Directors Association, shall determine, in a manner that reflects the legislative intent for the use of these funds and that is most beneficial to the overall CalWORKs program, whether housing supports provided with this funding are considered to be assistance or nonassistance payments. SEC. 72. Section 11450.025 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT This section would increase CalWORKs benefits effective April 1, 2015 as follows: Family Size 2014 Grant Level for Region 1 5% Increase Grant Levels Effective April 1, 2015 for Region 1 2014 Grant Level for Region 2 5% Increase Grant Levels Effective April 1, 2015 for Region 2 1 $333 $350 $315 $331 2 $542 $569 $515 $541 3 $670 $704 $638 $670 4 $800 $840 $761 $799 5 $909 $954 $866 $909 6 $1,021 $1,072 $972 $1,021 7 $1,122 $1,178 $1,067 $1,120 8 $1,222 $1,283 $1,164 $1,222 9 $1,321 $1,387 $1,258 $1,321 10 $1,419 $1,490 $1,350 $1,418 11450.025. (a) (1) Notwithstanding any other law, effective on March 1, 2014, the maximum aid payments in effect on July 1, 2012, as specified in subdivision (b) of Section 11450.02, shall be increased by 5 percent. (2) Effective April 1, 2015, the maximum aid payments in effect on July 1, 2014, as specified in paragraph (1), shall be increased by 5 percent. (b) Commencing in 2014 and annually thereafter, on or before January 10 and on or before May 14, the Director of Finance shall do all of the following: (1) Estimate the amount of growth revenues pursuant to subdivision (f) of Section 17606.10 that will be deposited in the Child Poverty and Family Supplemental Support Subaccount of the Local Revenue Fund for the current fiscal year and the following fiscal year and the amounts in the subaccount carried over from prior fiscal years. (2) For the current fiscal year and the following fiscal year, determine the total cost of providing the increase increases described in subdivision (a), as well as any other increase in the maximum aid payments subsequently provided only under this section, after adjusting for updated projections of CalWORKs costs associated with caseload changes, as reflected in the local assistance subvention estimates prepared by the State Department of Social Services and released with the annual Governor’s Budget and subsequent May Revision update. (3) If the amount estimated in paragraph (1) plus the amount projected to be deposited for the current fiscal year into the Child Poverty and Family Supplemental Support Subaccount pursuant to subparagraph (3) of subdivision (e) of Section 17600.15 is greater than the amount determined in paragraph (2), the difference shall be used to calculate the percentage increase to the CalWORKs maximum aid payment standards that could be fully funded on an ongoing basis beginning the following fiscal year. (4) If the amount estimated in paragraph (1) plus the amount projected to be deposited for the current fiscal year into the Child Poverty and Family Supplemental Support Subaccount pursuant to subparagraph (3) of subdivision (e) of Section 17600.15 is equal to or less than the amount determined in paragraph (2), no additional increase to the CalWORKs maximum aid payment standards shall be provided in the following fiscal year in accordance with this section. (5) (A) Commencing with the 2014 15 fiscal year and for all fiscal years thereafter, if changes to the estimated amounts determined in paragraphs (1) or (2), or both, as of the May Revision, are enacted as part of the final budget, the Director of Finance shall repeat, using the same methodology used in the May Revision, the calculations described in paragraphs (3) and (4) using the revenue projections and grant costs assumed in the enacted budget. (B) If a calculation is required pursuant to subparagraph (A), the Department of Finance shall report the result of this calculation to the appropriate policy and fiscal committees of the Legislature upon enactment of the Budget Act. (c) An increase in maximum aid payments calculated pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision (b), or pursuant to paragraph (5) of subdivision (b) if applicable, shall become effective on October 1 of the following fiscal year. (d) (1) An increase in maximum aid payments provided in accordance with this section shall be funded with growth revenues from the Child Poverty and Family Supplemental Support Subaccount in accordance with paragraph (3) of subdivision (e) of Section 17600.15 and subdivision (f) of Section 17606.10, to the extent funds are available in that subaccount. (2) If funds received by the Child Poverty and Family Supplemental Support Subaccount in a particular fiscal year are insufficient to fully fund any increases to maximum aid payments made pursuant to this section, the remaining cost for that fiscal year will be addressed through existing provisional authority included in the annual Budget Act. Additional grant increases shall not be provided until and unless the ongoing cumulative costs of all prior grant increases provided pursuant to this section are fully funded by the Child Poverty and Family Supplemental Support Subaccount. (e) Notwithstanding Section 15200, counties shall not be required to contribute a share of cost the costs to cover the costs ofincreases to maximum aid payments made pursuant to this section. SEC. 75. Section 11477 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT This section would not require safety net families and child only cases living on an average grant that is equal to 19% of the supplemental poverty level to assign their child support to the state. As a consequence this would result in these families receiving child support directly and being subject to the current income anticipation rule that often assumes the family would receive income when it often does not. This results in immense suffering of families and children and often sentences these families in deep poverty to long-term homelessness. The language that is the intent of the Legislature that the regular receipt of child support in the preceding reporting period be considered in determining reasonably anticipated income for the following reporting period would not prevent the harm that this new policy would do to these families. The county would always argue that they considered regular receipt and even though there was no evidence of regular receipt they still would anticipate income that would never be coming. Of course this section that would harm families is effective IMMEDIATELY and can be implemented through an All County Letter. 11477. As a condition of eligibility for aid paid under this chapter, each applicant or recipient shall do all of the following: (a) (1) Do either of the following: (i) For applications received before October 1, 2009, assign to the county any rights to support from any other person the applicant or recipient may have on his or her own behalf or on behalf of any other family member for whom the applicant or recipient is applying for or receiving aid, not exceeding the total amount of cash assistance provided to the family under this chapter. Receipt of public assistance under this chapter shall operate as an assignment by operation of law. An assignment of support rights to the county shall also constitute an assignment to the state. If support rights are assigned pursuant to this subdivision, the assignee may become an assignee of record by the local child support agency or other public official filing with the court clerk an affidavit showing that an assignment has been made or that there has been an assignment by operation of law. This procedure does not limit any other means by which the assignee may become an assignee of record. (ii) For applications received on or after October 1, 2009, assign to the county any rights to support from any other person the applicant or recipient may have on his or her own behalf, or on behalf of any other family member for whom the applicant or recipient is applying for or receiving aid. The assignment shall apply only to support that accrues during the period of time that the applicant is receiving assistance under this chapter, and shall not exceed the total amount of cash assistance provided to the family under this chapter. Receipt of public assistance under this chapter shall operate as an assignment by operation of law. An assignment of support rights to the county shall also constitute an assignment to the state. If support rights are assigned pursuant to this subdivision, the assignee may become an assignee of record by the local child support agency or other public official filing with the court clerk an affidavit showing that an assignment has been made or that there has been an assignment by operation of law. This procedure does not limit any other means by which the assignee may become an assignee of record. (2) Support that has been assigned pursuant to paragraph (1) and that accrues while the family is receiving aid under this chapter shall be permanently assigned until the entire amount of aid paid has been reimbursed. (3) If the federal government does not permit states to adopt the same order of distribution for preassistance and postassistance child support arrears that are assigned on or after October 1, 1998, support arrears that accrue before the family receives aid under this chapter that are assigned pursuant to this subdivision shall be assigned as follows: (A) Child support assigned prior to January 1, 1998, shall be permanently assigned until aid is no longer received and the entire amount of aid has been reimbursed. (B) Child support assigned on or after January 1, 1998, but prior to October 1, 2000, shall be temporarily assigned until aid under this chapter is no longer received and the entire amount of aid paid has been reimbursed or until October 1, 2000, whichever comes first. (C) On or after October 1, 2000, support assigned pursuant to this subdivision that was not otherwise permanently assigned shall be temporarily assigned to the county until aid is no longer received. (D) On or after October 1, 2000, support that was temporarily assigned pursuant to this subdivision shall, when a payment is received from the federal tax intercept program, be temporarily assigned until the entire amount of aid paid has been reimbursed. (4) If the federal government permits states to adopt the same order of distribution for preassistance and postassistance child support arrears, child support arrears shall be assigned, as follows: (A) Child support assigned pursuant to this subdivision prior to October 1, 1998, shall be assigned until aid under this chapter is no longer received and the entire amount has been reimbursed. (B) On or after October 1, 1998, child support assigned pursuant to this subdivision that accrued before the family receives aid under this chapter and that was not otherwise permanently assigned, shall be temporarily assigned until aid under this chapter is no longer received. (C) On or after October 1, 1998, support that was temporarily assigned pursuant to this subdivision shall, when a payment is received from the federal tax intercept program, be temporarily assigned until the entire amount of aid paid has been reimbursed. (b) (1) Cooperate with the county welfare department and local child support agency in establishing the paternity of a child of the applicant or recipient born out of wedlock with respect to whom aid is claimed, and in establishing, modifying, or enforcing a support order with respect to a child of the individual for whom aid is requested or obtained, unless the applicant or recipient qualifies for a good cause exception as provided in pursuant to Section 11477.04. The granting of aid shall not be delayed or denied if the applicant is otherwise eligible, if the applicant completes the necessary forms and agrees to cooperate with the local child support agency in securing support and determining paternity, where if applicable. The local child support agency shall have staff available, in person or by telephone, at all county welfare offices and shall conduct an interview with each applicant to obtain information necessary to establish paternity and establish, modify, or enforce a support order at the time of the initial interview with the welfare office. The local child support agency shall make the determination of cooperation. If the applicant or recipient attests under penalty of perjury that he or she cannot provide the information required by this subdivision, the local child support agency shall make a finding regarding whether the individual could reasonably be expected to provide the information, information before the local child support agency determines whether the individual is cooperating. In making the finding, the local child support agency shall consider all of the following: (A) The age of the child for whom support is sought. (B) The circumstances surrounding the conception of the child. (C) The age or mental capacity of the parent or caretaker of the child for whom aid is being sought. (D) The time that has elapsed since the parent or caretaker last had contact with the alleged father or obligor. (2) Cooperation includes all of the following: (A) Providing the name of the alleged parent or obligor and other information about that person if known to the applicant or recipient, such as address, social security number, telephone number, place of employment or school, and the names and addresses of relatives or associates. (B) Appearing at interviews, hearings, and legal proceedings provided the applicant or recipient is provided with reasonable advance notice of the interview, hearing, or legal proceeding and does not have good cause not to appear. (C) If paternity is at issue, submitting to genetic tests, including genetic testing of the child, if necessary. (D) Providing any additional information known to or reasonably obtainable by the applicant or recipient necessary to establish paternity or to establish, modify, or enforce a child support order. (3) A recipient or applicant shall not be required to sign a voluntary declaration of paternity, as set forth in Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 7570) of Part 2 of Division 12 of the Family Code, as a condition of cooperation. (c) This section shall not apply if all of the adults are excluded from the assistance unit pursuant to Section 11251.3, 11454, or 11486.5. (d) It is the intent of the Legislature that the regular receipt of child support in the preceding reporting period be considered in determining reasonably anticipated income for the following reporting period. SEC. 76. Section 12300.4 is added to the Welfare and Institutions Code, to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT This section addresses IHSS maximum hours that a provider can work in any given month. These provisions would have very negative impact on the beneficiaries of the IHSS program by limiting their ability to hire caregivers to keep them out of nursing homes just to save $180 million from a $5 billion program. 12300.4. (a) Notwithstanding any other law, including, but not limited to, Chapter 10 (commencing with Section 3500) of Division 4 of Title 1 of the Government Code and Title 23 (commencing with Section 110000) of the Government Code, a recipient who is authorized to receive in-home supportive services pursuant to this article, or Section 14132.95, 14132.952, or 14132.956, administered by the State Department of Social Services, or waiver personal care services pursuant to Section 14132.97, administered by the State Department of Health Care Services, or any combination of these services, shall direct these authorized services, and the authorized services shall be performed by a provider or providers within a workweek and in a manner that complies with the requirements of this section. (b) (1) A workweek is defined as beginning at 12:00 a.m. on Sunday and includes the next consecutive 168 hours, terminating at 11:59 p.m. the following Saturday. (2) A provider of services specified in subdivision (a) shall not work a total number of hours within a workweek that exceeds 66, as reduced by the net percentage defined by Sections 12301.02 and 12301.03, as applicable, and in accordance with subdivision (d). The total number of hours worked within a workweek by a provider is defined as the sum of the following: (A) All hours worked providing authorized services specified in subdivision (a). (B) Travel time as defined in subdivision (f), only if federal financial participation is not available to compensate for that travel time. If federal financial participation is available for travel time as defined in subdivision (f), the travel time shall not be included in the calculation of the total weekly authorized hours of services. (3) (A) If the authorized in-home supportive services of a recipient cannot be provided by a single provider as a result of the limitation specified in paragraph (2), it is the responsibility of the recipient to employ an additional provider or providers, as needed, to ensure his or her authorized services are provided within his or her total weekly authorized hours of services established pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 12301.1. (B) If the provider of authorized waiver personal care services cannot provide those services to a recipient as a result of the limitation specified in paragraph (2), the State Department of Health Care Services shall work with the recipient to engage additional providers, as necessary. It is the intent of the Legislature that this section shall not result in reduced services authorized to recipients of waiver personal care services defined in subdivision (a). (4) (A) A provider shall inform each of his or her recipients of the number of hours that the provider is available to work for that recipient, in accordance with this section. (B) A recipient, his or her authorized representative, or any other entity, including any person or entity providing services pursuant to Section 14186.35, shall not authorize any provider to work hours that exceed the applicable limitation or limitations of this section. (C) A recipient may authorize a provider to work hours in excess of the recipient’s weekly authorized hours established pursuant to Section 12301.1 without notification of the county welfare department, in accordance with both of the following: (i) The authorization does not result in more than 40 hours of authorized services per week being provided. (ii) The authorization does not exceed the recipient’s authorized hours of monthly services pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 12301.1. (5) For providers of in-home supportive services, the State Department of Social Services or a county may terminate the provider from providing services under the IHSS program if a provider continues to violate the limitations of this section on multiple occasions. (c) Notwithstanding any other law, only federal law and regulations regarding overtime compensation apply to providers of services defined in subdivision (a). (d) A provider of services defined in subdivision (a) is subject to all of the following, as applicable to his or her situation: (1) A provider who works for an individual recipient of those services shall not work a total number of hours within a workweek that exceeds 66 hours, as reduced by the net percentage defined by Sections 12301.02 and 12301.03, as applicable. In no circumstance shall the provision of these services by that provider to the individual recipient exceed the total weekly hours of the services authorized to that recipient, except as additionally authorized pursuant to subparagraph (C) of paragraph (4) of subdivision (b). If multiple providers serve the same recipient, it shall continue to be the responsibility of that recipient or his or her authorized representative to schedule the work of his or her providers to ensure the authorized services of the recipient are provided in accordance with this section. (2) A provider of in-home supportive services described in subdivision (a) who serves multiple recipients is not authorized to, and shall not, work more than 66 total hours in a workweek, as reduced by the net percentage defined by Sections 12301.02 and 12301.03, as applicable, regardless of the number of recipients for whom the provider provides services authorized by subdivision (a). Providers are subject to the limits of each recipient’s total authorized weekly hours of in-home supportive services described in subdivision (a), except as additionally authorized pursuant to subparagraph (C) of paragraph (4) of subdivision (b). (e) Recipients and providers shall be informed of the limitations and requirements contained in this section, through notices at intervals and on forms as determined by the State Department of Social Services or the State Department of Health Care Services, as applicable, following consultation with stakeholders. (f) (1) A provider of services described in subdivision (a) shall not engage in travel time in excess of seven hours per week. For the purposes of this subdivision, travel time means time spent traveling directly from a location where authorized services specified in subdivision (a) are provided to one recipient, to another location where authorized services are to be provided to another recipient. A provider shall coordinate hours of work with his or her recipient or recipients to comply with this section. (2) The hourly wage to compensate a provider for travel time described in this subdivision when the travel is between two counties shall be the hourly wage of the destination county. (3) Travel time, and compensation for that travel time, between a recipient of authorized in-home supportive services specified in subdivision (a) and a recipient of authorized waiver personal care services specified in subdivision (a), shall be attributed to the program authorizing services for the recipient to whom the provider is traveling. (4) Hours spent by a provider while engaged in travel time shall not be deducted from the authorized hours of service of any recipient of services specified in subdivision (a). (5) The State Department of Social Services and the State Department of Health Care Services shall issue guidance and processes for travel time between recipients that will assist the provider and recipient to comply with this subdivision. Each county shall provide technical assistance to providers and recipients, as necessary, to implement this subdivision. (g) A provider of authorized in-home supportive services specified in subdivision (a) shall timely submit, deliver, or mail, verified by postmark or request for delivery, a signed payroll timesheet within two weeks after the end of each bimonthly payroll period. Notwithstanding any other law, a provider who submits an untimely payroll timesheet for providing authorized in-home supportive services specified in subdivision (a) shall be paid by the state within 30 days of the receipt of the signed payroll timesheet. (h) This section does not apply to a contract entered into pursuant to Section 12302 or 12302.6 for authorized in-home supportive services. Contract rates negotiated pursuant to Section 12302 or 12302.6 shall be based on costs consistent with a 40 hour workweek. (i) The state and counties are immune from any liability resulting from implementation of this section. (j) Any action authorized under this section that is implemented in a program authorized pursuant to Section 14132.95, 14132.97, 14132.952, or 14132.956 shall be compliant with federal Medicaid requirements, as determined by the State Department of Health Care Services. (k) Notwithstanding the rulemaking provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code), the State Department of Social Services and the State Department of Health Care Services may implement, interpret, or make specific this section by means of all-county letters or similar instructions, without taking any regulatory action. (l) (1) This section shall become operative only when the regulatory amendments made by RIN 1235-AA05 to Part 552 of Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations are deemed effective, either on the date specified in RIN 1235-AA05 or at a later date specified by the Federal Department of Labor, whichever is later. (2) If the regulatory amendments described in paragraph (1) become only partially effective by the date specified in paragraph (1), this section shall become operative only for those persons for whom federal financial participation is available as of that date. SEC. 77. Section 12300.41 is added to the Welfare and Institutions Code, to read SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT This section would allow providers to be paid in excess of the hour limitation embodied in Section 76 above for three (3) months. 12300.41. (a) For three months following the effective date specified in paragraph (1) of subdivision (l) of Section 12300.4, timesheets submitted by providers may be paid in excess of the limitations specified in Section 12300.4, so long as the number of hours worked by the provider within a month do not exceed the authorized hours of the recipient or recipients served by that provider. (b) The State Department of Social Services, in consultation with stakeholders, shall oversee a study of the implementation of Section 12300.4, Section 12301.1, and this section. This study shall cover the 24-month period subsequent to the three-month period specified in subdivision (a). Information collected for the study shall periodically be made available to stakeholders, including but not limited to representatives of recipients and providers, counties, and the legislative staff. Upon completion of the study, a report shall be submitted to the Legislature. (c) Using the study described in (b), it is the intent of the Legislature to evaluate implementation of the federal regulations described in paragraph (1) of subdivision (l) of Section 12300.4 and make any adjustments determined appropriate or necessary through subsequent legislation. SEC. 78. Section 12301.1 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT This section addresses changes in the IHSS program. 12301.1. (a) The department shall adopt regulations establishing a uniform range of services available to all eligible recipients based upon individual needs. The availability of services under these regulations is subject to the provisions of Section 12301 and county plans developed pursuant to Section 12302. (b) (1) The county welfare department shall assess each recipient’s continuing monthly need for in-home supportive services at varying intervals as necessary, but at least once every 12 months. The results of this assessment of monthly need for hours of in-home supportive services shall be divided by 4.33, to establish a recipient’s weekly authorized number of hours of in-home supportive services, subject to any of the following, as applicable: (A) Within the limit of the assessed monthly need for hours of in-home supportive services, a county welfare department may adjust the authorized weekly hours of a recipient for any particular week for known recurring or periodic needs of the recipient. (B) Within the limit of the assessed monthly need for hours of in-home supportive services, a county welfare department may temporarily adjust the authorized weekly hours of a recipient at the request of the recipient, to accommodate unexpected extraordinary circumstances. (C) In addition to the flexibility provided to a recipient pursuant to subparagraph (C) of paragraph (4) of subdivision (b) of Section 12300.4, a recipient may request the county welfare department to adjust his or her weekly authorized hours of services to exceed 40 hours of weekly authorized hours of services per week, within his or her total monthly authorized hours of services. A request for adjustment may be made retrospective to the hours actually worked. The county welfare department shall not unreasonably withhold approval of a recipient request made pursuant to this subparagraph. (2) For purposes of subparagraph (C) of paragraph (1), and prior to its implementation, the State Department of Social Services shall develop a process for requests pursuant to that subparagraph. The process shall include all of the following: (A) The procedure, standards, and timeline for making a request to adjust the authorized weekly hours of service for a recipient defined in this section. (B) The language used for notices about the process. (C) Provisions for adjustments to authorization, and for authorization after services have been provided, when the criteria for approval have been met. (D) A requirement that the opportunity for a revision to the limitations of this section shall be discussed at each annual reassessment, and also may be authorized by the county welfare department outside of the reassessment process. (3) Recipients shall be timely informed of their total monthly and weekly authorized hours. (4) The weekly authorization of services defined in this section shall be used solely for the purposes of ensuring compliance with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and its implementing regulations. (5) Notwithstanding the rulemaking provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code), the department may implement, interpret, or make specific this subdivision by means of all-county letters, or similar instructions, without taking any regulatory action. (c) (1) Notwithstanding subdivision (b), at the county’s option, assessments may be extended, on a case-by-case basis, for up to six months beyond the regular 12-month period, provided that the county documents that all of the following conditions exist: (A) The recipient has had at least one reassessment since the initial program intake assessment. (B) The recipient’s living arrangement has not changed since the last annual reassessment and the recipient lives with others, or has regular meaningful contact with persons other than his or her service provider. (C) The recipient or, if the recipient is a minor, his or her parent or legal guardian, or if incompetent, his or her conservator, is able to satisfactorily direct the recipient’s care. (D) There has been no known change in the recipient’s supportive service needs within the previous 24 months. (E) No reports have been made to, and there has been no involvement of, an adult protective services agency or agencies since the county last assessed the recipient. (F) The recipient has not had a change in provider or providers for at least six months. (G) The recipient has not reported a change in his or her need for supportive services that requires a reassessment. (H) The recipient has not been hospitalized within the last three months. (2) If some, but not all, of the conditions specified in paragraph (1) of subdivision (c) are met, the county may consider other factors in determining whether an extended assessment interval is appropriate, including, but not limited to, involvement in the recipient’s care of a social worker, case manager, or other similar representative from another human services agency, such as a regional center or county mental health program, or communications, or other instructions from a physician or other licensed health care professional that the recipient’s medical condition is unlikely to change. (3) A county may reassess a recipient’s need for services at a time interval of less than 12 months from a recipient’s initial intake or last assessment if the county social worker has information indicating that the recipient’s need for services is expected to decrease in less than 12 months. (d) A county shall assess a recipient’s need for supportive services any time that the recipient notifies the county of a need to adjust the supportive services hours authorized, or when there are other indications or expectations of a change in circumstances affecting the recipient’s need for supportive services. (e) (1) Notwithstanding the rulemaking provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code, until emergency regulations are filed with the Secretary of State, the department may implement this section through all-county letters or similar instructions from the director. The department shall adopt emergency regulations implementing this section no later than September 30, 2005, unless notification of a delay is made to the Chair of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee prior to that date. The notification shall include the reason for the delay, the current status of the emergency regulations, a date by which the emergency regulations shall be adopted, and a statement of need to continue use of all-county letters or similar instructions. Under no circumstances shall the adoption of emergency regulations be delayed, or the use of all-county letters or similar instructions be extended, beyond June 30, 2006. (2) The adoption of regulations implementing this section shall be deemed an emergency and necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, safety, or general welfare. The emergency regulations authorized by this section shall be exempt from review by the Office of Administrative Law. The emergency regulations authorized by this section shall be submitted to the Office of Administrative Law for filing with the Secretary of State and shall remain in effect for no more than 180 days by which time final regulations shall be adopted. The department shall seek input from the entities listed in Section 12305.72 when developing all-county letters or similar instructions and the regulations. SEC. 81. Section 18901.2 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is repealed and then added to read: SAFETY NET BENEFICIARY IMPACT STATEMENT This section would require California to make the federally required LIHEAP payment for every CalFresh recipient to assure that all CalFresh households receive the Standard Utility Allowance. 18901.2. (a) There is hereby created the State Utility Assistance Subsidy (SUAS), a state-funded energy assistance program that shall provide energy assistance benefits to eligible CalFresh households so that the households may receive a standard utility allowance to be used to help meet its energy costs, receive information about energy efficiency, and so that some households may experience an increase in federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, as well as benefit from paperwork reduction. (b) To the extent required by federal law, the Department of Community Services and Development shall delegate authority to the State Department of Social Services to design, implement, and maintain SUAS as a program created exclusively for purposes of this section, similar to the federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) (42 U.S.C. Sec. 8621 et seq.). (c) In designing, implementing, and maintaining the SUAS program, the State Department of Social Services shall do all of the following: (1) Provide households that do not currently qualify for, nor receive, a standard utility allowance, with a SUAS benefit in an amount and frequency sufficient to meet federal requirements specified in Section 2014(e)(6)(C)(iv) of Title 7 of the United States Code if the household meets either of the following requirements: (A) The household would become eligible for CalFresh benefits if the standard utility allowance was provided. (B) The household would receive increased benefits if the standard utility allowance was provided.

(CCWRO) has been providing advocacy in public benefits since the early 1980’s. CCWRO is a statewide nonprofit organization providing back-up services to qualified legal service field programs and representing welfare recipients. 15.7% CalWORKs Grant Reduction Proposal JOB KILLER The proposed CalWORKs 15.7% grant cuts will mean a loss of $590 million for impoverished families in California for 2010-2011. The cuts re- sult in General Fund savings of $130 million, assuming that the federal ARRA program is extended. What would $130 million General Fund savings cost California? The loss of $472 million enhanced federal ARRA funds; The economic stimulus of $1.03 bil- lion, based on the assumption that for every dollar not received by a Cal- WORKs family, California loses 1.7 dollars of economic activity in that community; The loss of 180,000 jobs in Califor- nia. This is based on the fact that in 2008, the average wage in California was $56,000. Most welfare recipient jobs would pay less than the average. CCWRO State Budget Update – #2 Assembly Budget Hearings On 1\/12\/10 the Assembly Budget Committee held the first hearing on the 2010-2011 State Budget. The chair of the committee, Noreen Evans opened the hearing by saying that the proposed budget was disap- pointing. She said that the budget tries to pass the buck to the federal gov- ernment and asks for sacrifices from those in our society with the least. Evans also said that this year the budget would be open and transpar- ent. She said the budget will be built in the sunshine and not by The Big Five. Ms. Evans said, Ordinary peo- ple will be heard in the process and the budget will have a body count if enacted as proposed. Republican Jim Nielson suggested that people should come to the Com- mittee with suggestions of savings that can be used to save the programs they support. Several Republican members of the Committee said that they support no new revenues and urged that the bud- get be balanced with budget cuts. Todd Jerue, Chief Deputy Direc- tor for Budgets from the Department of Finance, presented the Governor’s budget and laid out all of the pro- gram reductions that were termed by Assemblyman Sandre Swanson as mean spirited and unrealistic. Mr. Jerue said that California’s budget deficit amounts to $19 billion. Under questioning Mr. Jerue did not deny that even if the Legislature rubber- stamped and enacted all of the cuts proposed by the Governor, the bud- get will still be out of balance by several billion dollars. Mac Taylor, the Legislative Analyst, later said that even if all of the Governor’s proposals were enacted, the budget will continue to have a $5-6 billion deficit. Mr. Jerue was asked if he could identify some waste in state gov- ernment. He suggested cutting state employee salaries by 5%. The Governor reintroduced pro- posed IHSS program cuts that were stopped by the federal court last session. However, this time the cuts would eliminate 87% of the case- load. The Legislative Analyst stated that the proposed IHSS cuts would result in many people ending up in nursing homes, that would cost more than the IHSS budget cuts. Nick Buchen, Department of Fi- nance, testified that there were not enough nursing home beds in Cali- fornia to take in all of the people being proposed for termination, but Department of Finance assumes that the families would not place the IHSS recipients in nursing homes and will continue to provide care without pay. Assemblyman William Monning asked the Administration if they knew how many jobs the reduction or termination of CalWORKs and IHSS would cause. The Adminis- tration admitted that they had not done a jobs impact analysis of these cuts. What is the cost of saving $130 million in the General Fund by Cutting CalWORKs grants by 15.7%? Federal Fund Loss $472 million Loss to California’s Ecomony $1 billion California Jobs Killed 180,000 jobs CCWRO State Budget UPDATE #2 www.ccwro.org January 20, Page 2 Jim Beall Jr. of Santa Clara County urged the administration to work on enhancing food stamp participation and federal earned income tax cred- it participation. Persons eligible for these programs would stimulate the California economy. Senate Budget & Fis- cal Review Committee Budget Hearing On January 14, 2010, the Senate Budget & Fiscal Review Commit- tee held the first hearing on the Governor’s proposed budget. The hearing was opened by Chair of the Committee, Senator Duchaney, who said that the Committee would look at alternative savings propos- als. She said she was very skeptical of new spending proposals from the Administration in this budget. CCWRO State Budget Update Republican Senator Dutton said he was concerned that some of the cuts may affect jobs. He also said that he agreed with Mac Taylor of the LAO who said that the Governor’s as- sumption of getting $6.9 billion from the federal government was unrealistic. Senator Duchaney asked why the Administration brought back the IHSS proposal that was rejected by the court. Mr. Bucken of the Depart- ment of Finance, said the Adminis- tration assumes that the federal gov- ernment would approve a waiver that would permit the cuts to take effect. Senator Duchaney asked how much had the state paid for lawsuits that had been lost and for the three- year labor negotiations that had not been productive. Senator Duchaney pointed out that while the staff time for most departments and the legisla- ture has been flat or down, the Gov- ernor’s staff time has increased by 1,000 hours. Senator Wright of Los Ange- les asked how Governor Schwar- zanegger could ask for more federal funds when he insists on furloughs that include state work- ers paid 100% with federal funds. Senator Lowenthal asked that the Department of Finance tell the Legislature and Californians how the trigger cuts would impact the California’s economy and jobs. Senator Leno noted that the elimi- nation of the Healthy Family pro- gram would mean 825,000 chil- dren would no longer have health care services and would have go to the local emergency rooms for health care. He noted that this did not include the social impact, edu- cational impact and prison impact of no health care for children. Sen- ator Leno also pointed out that the elimination of the IHSS program would mean a loss of 500,000 jobs. The future budget hearings are set forth below.

Chart #1 below reveals that if this is enacted by the Legisla- ture, the fixed incomes of Cali- fornia’s impoverished families would be below what they were in July, 1985. This would put CalWORKs grants at 37% of the poverty level.

The budget protects education and launches an unprec- edented attack on human services programs serving the poor of California. The idea pits advocates for health and welfare programs against education advocates. The Governor’s budget assumes that the federal government gives California a wel- fare check of $6.9 billion. California has mismanaged it’s budget affairs by neglect- ing the reality of the need for revenues. The response from Washington came via Sena- tor Feinstein who said California’s budget crisis was created in Sacramento, not Wash- ington . Moreover, the federal government $539 $177 $272 $651 $107.3 $56.2 $22.5 $47 $13.7 Proposed Budget Cuts 2009-2010 2010-2011 (in millions) Reduction of CalWORKs grants by 15.7% Reduction of SSI benefits by $15 Reduce State Participation in IHSS Worker Wages Limit IHSS to FI Score of 4.00 and above Elimination of CAPI Elimination of CFAP Eliminate CalWORKs for Recent Noncitizens Entrants Program Who Gets More? Counties and automation projects are rewarded in this budget. In 2009-2010 counties received ……………$1,455,893,000 In 2010-2011 counties will receive ………..$1,550,724,000 This is a $100 million increase in funding for counties and their vari- ous computer systems will take right out of the mouths of impover- ished children of California. F a m i l y S i z e has denied funding for undocumented cor- rectional inmates that California has been trying to get for more than a decade. The budget provides that if the Governor does not get his $6.9 welfare check from the federal government he will propose to eliminate the CalWORKs program, the IHSS program and more. This means that the federal government would need to take over the TANF program in California. America cannot abandon chil- dren – that is child abuse. The Governor has called another special ses- sion to enact $6.6 billion which would in- clude eliminations of CAPI, CFAP, reduction of individual SSI benefits by $15, reduction of CalWORKs grant by 15.7%, decimation of the IHSS program and reduction of child care rates. Below is a chart showing the wel- fare budget cuts proposed by the Governor for 2010-2011. ”
