"Representatives of Los Angeles city labor unions on Monday hailed the announcement that former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan had pulled the plug on his ballot measure effort to roll back pension benefits for city employees, calling it an expensive and poorly thought out proposal."
Los Angeles, Ca - Assemblyman Mike Davis commended SEIU and the members of Local 721 for their successful efforts to thwart former Mayor Richard Riordan's ballot measure to semi-privitize city employee pensions. "Kudos to SEIU for speaking out! Riordan put forth a risky proposal that provides a high level of uncertainty for the city's employees at the this time. We need something more solid that ensures those who work for our cities will have a sustainable retirement at the end of their service to Los Angeles," says Assemblyman Davis.

SACRAMENTO, CA — Today Assembly Concurrent Resolution 21 (Davis) passed the California State Assembly. The resolution declares August 2012 as Child Support Awareness Month and states the importance of child support to children and families.
“The focus of Child Support Awareness Month this year is the vital role parents play in providing a positive environment for their children. The slogan this year is: Child support provides security, instills confidence, maintains trust, and helps to make childhood dreams come true,” said Assemblyman Mike Davis.
Child support services are available to the public through a network of 51 county and regional child support agencies, and the Child Support Program serves 1.4 million children and their families.
“During the month of August, parents who are past due on their child support payments are encouraged to drop by their local child support agency to make a payment, modify their child support order, obtain a repayment plan, and/or find out whether they qualify for a compromise on their overdue balance,” Assemblyman Davis concluded.
In the state fiscal year ending in June 2011 – total collections at the California Department of Child Support Services were $2.3 billion. Of that, $1.8 billion was distributed directly to families and the state and federal government for recoupment of public assistance and foster care expenses.

For Release | AB 1253 County Budget Act Amendments Signed by Governor Jerry Brown
Will Give Counties Much Needed Budget Flexibility
SACRAMENTO – July 9, 2012 – This week, AB 1253 (Davis) was signed by Governor Jerry Brown after being unanimously passed by both the Senate and the Assembly. The bill will allow county boards of supervisors to make additions to the recommended budget prior to final budget approval.
Currently, counties are required to adopt a recommended budget on or before June 30 of each year, by formal action of the board, for the purpose of providing a spending authority until the final budget is adopted. The board has until October 2, to adopt a final budget. Many counties wait until the deadline (October 2) to approve a final budget due to possible fiscal changes that come down from the federal or state level.
Prior to 2009, Government Code Section 29064 provided counties the ability to amend the recommended budget prior to the adopted budget approval. However this code section was inadvertently deleted in a revision of the 2009 Budget Act.
AB 1253 will re-establish the county boards’ of supervisor’s ability to make changes to the approved budget during the period of time prior to adopting the final annual budget. “This will allow for the necessary changes due to economic and programmatic needs of the county, to insure appropriate spending authority. Without this amendment the board is prevented from making necessary changes to the recommended budget until the adopted budget is approved,” says Davis.
