Section 2233

2233. Limitation on amount of claims. (a) The Director of Finance shall include in the Governor's Budget an appropriation for a statute which has an otherwise minimal fiscal effect on local agencies or school districts if the director determines that the fiscal effect of the statute and other related statutes is, in the aggregate, significant.

(b) No claim shall be made pursuant to Sections 2229 and 2231 nor shall any payment be made on claims submitted pursuant to Sections 2229 and 2231 unless such claims exceed two hundred dollars ($200), provided that a county superintendent of schools or county may submit a combined claim on behalf of direct service districts or special districts within their county if the combined claim exceeds two hundred dollars ($200) even if the individual direct service or special district's claims do not each exceed two hundred dollars ($200). The county superintendent of schools or county shall determine if the submission of such combined claim is economically feasible and shall be responsible for disbursing such funds to each direct service or special district. Such combined claims may be filed only when the superintendent of schools or county is the fiscal agent for such districts. All subsequent claims based upon the same mandate shall only be filed in such combined form.
