Finance and Operations Platform Chapters

The California County Platform is a statement of basic policies on issues of concern and interest to California’s counties. CSAC’s policy committees and Board of Directors review the platform regularly, amending and updating when necessary.

In addition, the CSAC Policy Committees undertake review and update to their relevant platform chapters every two years, with action taken by the respective committee and Board of Directors.

Overview

State Mandates

The California Constitutions requires the state to pay local agencies for the cost of mandated programs and services, yet obtaining reimbursement for mandated services is a struggle with multiple obstacles.

The CSAC Mandate Services Committee meets regularly. More information about the committee is available below. 

As one of CSAC’s priority issues for 2017, we will advocate for a schedule to pay off the state’s remaining mandate debt of over $1 billion and will actively engage in discussions about alternatives to the current reimbursement system.
