Summary: Existing law provides for the Medi-Cal program, which is administered by the State Department of Health Care Services, under which health care services, including medical transportation services, are provided to qualified low-income persons. The Medi-Cal program is partially governed and funded under federal Medicaid provisions. This bill, as a condition of participation in the Medi-Cal program, commencing July 1, 2010, would impose on each public and private ambulance transportation services provider that bills and receives patient care revenue from the provision of ambulance transportation services, as defined, except as provided, a quality assurance fee for each transport provided, as specified.

Summary: Existing law defines "low-speed vehicle" for purposes of the Vehicle Code as a motor vehicle, other than a motortruck, with 4 wheels that is capable of a minimum speed of 20 miles per hour and a maximum speed of 25 miles per hour on a paved level surface and that has a gross vehicle weight rating of less than 3,000 pounds. Existing law imposes certain restrictions on the use of low-speed vehicles on public streets and highways, and generally requires an operator of a low-speed vehicle to have a driver's license. A low-speed vehicle is also known as a neighborhood electric vehicle. A violation of the Vehicle Code is an infraction, unless otherwise specified. This bill , until January 1, 2016, would authorize the County of Amador and the Cities of Jackson, Sutter Creek, and Amador City, jointly or individually, to establish a similar neighborhood electric vehicle plan, and would make a person in violation of certain provisions subject to the same penalties. The bill would require a report to the Legislature by January 1, 2015. Because the bill would create a new crime, it would impose a state-mandated local program. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.

Under this schedule, 58% of the balance in the fund is to be used for emergency medical services provided by all physicians and surgeons, except those employed in county hospitals, in general acute care hospitals that provide basic, comprehensive, or standby emergency medical services pursuant to prescribed provisions of law relating to standby emergency rooms or departments in certain small and rural hospitals and hospitals located in Los Angeles County that meet prescribed requirements, up to the time the patient is stabilized.

This bill would designate the second full week of April of each year as California Public Safety Telecommunicators Week for the purpose of heightening citizen awareness of the great importance of 911 service and its role in keeping the public safe. The bill would require the Governor and the Legislature to annually issue proclamations and resolutions, as specified, that draw public attention to the week in order to encourage the private sector and state and local agencies to initiate activities recognizing public safety telecommunicators.

Calendar: 04/13/10 1:30 p.m. - State Capitol, Room 4202 ASM HEALTH

Summary: Existing law, the Emergency Medical Services System and the Prehospital Emergency Medical Care Personnel Act, authorizes each county to designate an emergency medical services (EMS) agency, for the establishment and administration of an emergency medical services program in the county. Existing law also establishes the Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA) , which, among other things, adopts regulations governing the provision of emergency medical services. Violation of these provisions is a crime. This bill would specify that the guidelines of the authority shall include model policies, procedures, and treatment protocols applicable to all emergency medical technician personnel, as defined, and the respective licensure and certification requirements, as specified. It would require the local EMS agencies to adhere to the guidelines developed by the authority when establishing local policies and procedures required by statute or regulation. The bill would provide that any additional policies, procedures, and treatment protocols implemented by a local EMS agency that are not in accordance with the EMSA guidelines are subject to approval by the Director of the EMSA and the Emergency Medical Services Commission, as specified, prior to implementation. By requiring that the local entities comply with these requirements, and by changing the definition of an existing crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.

Calendar: 04/19/10 3 p.m. - State Capitol, Room 437 ASM UTILITIES AND COMMERCE

Summary: Existing provisions of the Warren-911-Emergency Assistance Act establish the number "911" as the primary emergency telephone number of use in the state. The existing Emergency Telephone Users Surcharge Act generally imposes a surcharge on amounts paid by every person in the state for intrastate telephone service that is imposed at a percentage rate, not less than 0.5% nor more than 0.75% as annually estimated to provide revenues sufficient to fund "911" emergency telephone system costs for the current fiscal year. Surcharge amounts are paid to the State Board of Equalization on a monthly basis by the telephone service supplier and are deposited into the State Treasury to the credit of the State Emergency Telephone Number Account in the General Fund. Under existing law, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has regulatory authority over public utilities, including telephone corporations, except to the extent regulation of commercial mobile radio service is preempted by federal regulation. This bill would require the PUC to open proceedings or expand the scope of existing proceedings to determine an equitable manner for mobile telephony service providers to collect the surcharge from users of prepaid communications services, and would require the PUC to advise the board of its determination. This bill contains other related provisions.

Summary: Existing law requires a public safety agency, as defined, to maintain a "911" emergency telephone number, as specified, and sets forth the duties of the Division of Telecommunications of the Department of General Services, including the provision of management oversight of statewide telecommunications developments.

This bill would authorize the Public Utilities Commission to designate a lead entity for the implementation of a "211" abbreviated telephone dialing system throughout the state to provide information and referral services in accordance with applicable federal law. The bill would provide that a 211 information and referral services provider and its employees, directors, officers, agents, or any public or nonprofit agency that provides information to a "211" system are not liable to any person in a civil action for injuries or losses to persons or property, as a result of an act or omission of the provider or its employees, directors, officers, or agents, in connection with certain specified activities, unless the act or omission constitutes willful or wanton misconduct.

Summary: Existing law regulates the terms and conditions of residential tenancies and governs the obligations of tenants and landlords under a lease or tenancy.

Summary: Existing law creates the California Emergency Management Agency and requires it to perform a variety of duties with respect to specified emergency preparedness, mitigation, and response activities in the state. Prior to the creation of the California Emergency Management Agency, these activities were the responsibility of the Governor's Office of Emergency Services and the Office of Homeland Security. The Budget Act of 2003 eliminated the Office of Criminal Justice Planning, and its responsibilities for administering a variety of planning, training, education, and crime suppression and mitigation programs ultimately were assigned to the Office of Emergency Services. This bill would make conforming changes to reference the California Emergency Management Agency as the agency responsible for the programs and activities described above. The bill would require, beginning July 1, 2011, that the agency report biennially to the Legislature, as specified, and delete other reporting requirements, both current and previously due. The bill would require the Secretary of Emergency Management to establish a Curriculum Development Advisory Committee, which would make recommendations regarding terrorism awareness curriculum and response training and would eliminate the Emergency Response Training Advisory Committee. Among other things the bill would also eliminate the requirement that the Seismic Safety Commission establish an urban search and rescue emergency response advisory committee and the responsibility of the California Emergency Management Agency to monitor, evaluate, and report on various projects related to runaway youth.

Summary: Existing law, the Public Safety Communication Act of 2002, provides that the Public Safety Radio Strategic Planning Committee shall have primary responsibility in state government to develop and implement a statewide integrated public safety communication system that facilitates interoperability among state public safety departments and other first response agencies and to coordinate other shared uses of the public safety spectrum. It requires the committee to make recommendations for state agency purchase of public safety radio subscriber equipment that will enable those agencies to commence conforming to industry and governmental interoperability standards. The act defines various terms for these purposes. This bill would recast various provisions of the act.

Existing law also provides that any person under the age of 21 years who attempts to purchase any alcoholic beverage from a licensee, or the licensee's agent or employee, is guilty of an infraction. This bill would grant immunity from criminal prosecution for any person under the age of 21 years who is subject to prosecution under the above where the person under the age of 21 years called 911 and reported that another underage person was in need of medical assistance due to alcohol consumption and conformed to other specified requirements, as described.

Summary: Under existing law, the Federal Communications Commission licenses and partially regulates providers of commercial mobile radio service, including providers of cellular radiotelephone service (cellular), broadband Personal Communications Services (PCS), and digital Specialized Mobile Radio (SMR) services (collectively, mobile telephony service providers). Under existing law, no state or local government may regulate the entry of, or the rates charged by, any commercial mobile radio service, but a state or local government is generally not prohibited from regulating the other terms and conditions of commercial mobile radio service. Existing law requires mobile telephony service providers to provide certain customer and subscriber services. This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to require a provider of mobile telephony services, as defined, to provide sufficient prior notification to a customer before money is deducted from the customer's bank account for services not provided for in the contract for mobile telephony services. The bill would also state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to require such a provider, if there is a billing dispute settled in the customer's favor, and the disputed sum has already been deducted from the customer's bank account, to offer the customer the option to elect either reimbursement of funds or future credit applied to the customer's service account.

Summary:  Existing law establishes the California Emergency Management Agency, which is responsible for the state's emergency and disaster response services for certain manmade disasters and emergencies, including responsibility for activities necessary to prevent, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of emergencies and disasters to people and property. This bill would establish the Local Government Mutual Aid Enhancement Program in the agency, and would require funds, as specified, deposited in the Emergency Response Fund, to be allocated to the program upon appropriation by the Legislature. This bill would require the Secretary of California Emergency Management to allocate funds to specified entities, for the purpose of enhancing or sustaining fire and rescue disaster mutual aid capacity to combat the effect of all hazard disasters, as provided. This bill would also require the secretary, in consultation with specified entities, to develop a strategy, as provided, for the enhancement of mutual aid, and would require each fire and rescue operational area to submit a 3-year strategy for the enhancement of fire and rescue disaster mutual aid, as specified, to the secretary. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.

Calendar: 04/20/10 9:30 a.m. - Room 3191 SEN ENERGY, UTILITIES AND COMMUNICATIONS

Summary: Existing law requires all local telephone corporations, excluding providers of mobile telephony service and mobile satellite telephone service, to the extent permitted by existing technology or facilities, to provide every existing and newly installed residential telephone connection with access to "911" emergency service regardless of whether an account has been established. This bill would instead require local telephone corporations to provide a connection that has the capacity to place a "911" call rather than providing access to "911" emergency service.

Summary: Existing law regulating the provision of telecommunications services requires a local exchange service provider to provide prescribed consumer protections relating to pay-per-use telephone service features and verification of changes in service providers.

Calendar: 04/12/10 12 SEN SENATE BILLS-THIRD READING FILE

Summary:  The California Constitution requires the Governor to submit to the Legislature by January 10 of each year a budget for the ensuing fiscal year, accompanied by a Budget Bill itemizing recommended expenditures. The Constitution requires specified bills, including a bill making a change in state taxes for the purpose of raising revenue, a bill containing an urgency clause, and a bill, including the Budget Bill, that makes certain appropriations from the General Fund, to be passed in each house of the Legislature by a 2/3 vote. This measure would exempt General Fund appropriations in the Budget Bill from the 2/3 vote requirement. This bill contains other related provisions and other existing laws.

Calendar: 04/12/10 14 SEN SENATE BILLS-THIRD READING FILE

Summary: Existing provisions of the California Constitution provide that the initiative is the power of the electors to propose statutes and amendments to the Constitution and to adopt or reject those proposals. Those provisions require the Secretary of State to submit the measure at the next general election held at least 131 days after it qualifies or at any special statewide election held prior to that general election. The Governor may also call a special statewide election on the measure. This measure would require the Secretary of State to transmit a copy of an initiative measure certified for the ballot to each house of the Legislature no later than 176 days prior to the election at which the measure is to be voted upon. Within 30 days , the Legislature may propose an amended form of the initiative measure by adopting a concurrent resolution. If the Legislature proposes an amended form of the initiative measure, the measure would provide that if the proponent, or a majority of the proponents if there is more than one proponent, of the initiative measure accepts the proposed amendments, the Legislature's proposal would appear on the ballot in place of the certified initiative measure. The measure would require that, if the amended form proposed by the Legislature is not accepted, information regarding the proposed amended form be included in the ballot materials relating to the initiative measure, as prescribed by statute. This bill contains other existing laws.
