Section 2241

2241. Legislative Counsel to determine whether state reimbursement required. When a bill is introduced in the Legislature, and each time a bill is amended, the Legislative Counsel shall determine whether the bill requires state reimbursement to local agencies or school districts pursuant to Section 2229 or 2230. The Legislative Counsel shall make this determination known in the digest of the bill and shall describe in the digest the basis for this determination.

In making any determination required by this section the Legislative Counsel shall disregard any provision in a bill which would make inoperative the reimbursement requirements of Section 2229 or 2230, and shall make his or her determination irrespective of any provision to that effect.
