Mandated Service Reimbursement and Reform




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.

As one of CSAC’s priority issues for 2016, 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.
