Edmund G. Brown, Jr. signed AB 94 (Budget Committee) on May 10, 2011, which makes technical changes to previous public safety realignment legislation to ease local access and utilization of jail construction funding. AB 94 reduces the match for AB 900 jail projects to 10 percent and requires CDCR and CSA to give funding preference to counties that relinquish certain local jail construction awards and agree to continue to help the state in siting reentry facilities. AB 94 also caps the amount a county may receive from the State Public Works Board’s (SPWB) issuance of bonds, notes, and bond anticipation notes to $100,00,000. AB 94 also makes some additional technical changes.
