2011 Public Safety Realignment Fact Sheet/FAQ
May 15, 2020
As counties work diligently to prepare local budgets in the face of great fiscal uncertainty, we know there are many questions about existing revenue streams. The economic impacts of COVID-19 are anticipated to result in sharp reductions in Vehicle License Fee (VLF) and Sales and Use Tax, creating unprecedented times for 2011 Public Safety Realignment—the first year-over-year decline in revenue for the Local Revenue Fund 2011.
Given the number of questions that have been raised, and because counties may be asked or asking these questions in the near future, CSAC and Urban Counties of California partnered to develop the attached 2011 Public Safety Realignment Fact Sheet/FAQ.
If you have additional questions regarding 2011 Public Safety Realignment, please reach out to the CSAC Administration of Justice or Health and Human Services policy teams.
