DOF Releases FY 2014-15 Suspended State Mandates

July 25, 2014
The Department of Finance (DOF) recently released a list of 60 state mandates suspended in the FY 2014-15 Budget Act. California law requires the state reimburse local agencies for costs deriving from legislation mandating new government programs or higher levels of service.
 
When a mandate is suspended, the state no longer reimburses or requires cities and local agencies to implement the suspended mandates.

Time and time again Gov. Jerry Brown has made his desire to control and cut state costs clear. The Governor is anticipated to continue to suspend these (and possibly additional) mandates through the remainder of his term in an effort to conserve state funds.
