INTRODUCED BY   Assembly Member Rendon

                        FEBRUARY 5, 2013

   An act relating to state employees, and declaring the urgency
thereof, to take effect immediately.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 237, as introduced, Rendon. State employees: memorandum of
understanding.
   Existing law provides that a provision of a memorandum of
understanding reached between the state employer and a recognized
employee organization representing state civil service employees that
requires the expenditure of funds does not become effective unless
approved by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act.
   This bill would approve provisions of a memorandum of
understanding entered into between the state employer and State
Bargaining Unit 6, the California Correctional Peace Officers
Association, that require the expenditure of funds, and would provide
that these provisions will become effective even if these provisions
are approved by the Legislature in legislation other than the annual
Budget Act.
   The bill would provide that provisions of the memorandum of
understanding approved by this bill that require the expenditure of
funds will not take effect unless funds for those provisions are
specifically appropriated by the Legislature, and would require the
state employer and the affected employee organization to meet and
confer to renegotiate the affected provisions if funds for those
provisions are not specifically appropriated by the Legislature.
   This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as
an urgency statute.
   Vote: 2/3. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: no.
