Section 16100.6

16100.6. Payment. Out of the amount appropriated to the Controller by Section 16100, the Controller shall pay each year to each local government on claims submitted 45 days after the effective date of the addition of this section to the code and on September 1 of each year thereafter the actual increased cost to that local government caused by Section 8106 of the Elections Code. The Controller may reduce any claim that appears to be excessive or unreasonable and shall adjust the payment for the current fiscal year for any underpayment or overpayment in a prior fiscal year. The Controller may audit the records of any local public agency to verify actual cost.
