Executive Order Extending Timelines For Claims Against Public Entities & Claims for State Prisoner Reimbursements
May 21, 2020
Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-65-20 which, in part, extends two statutorily imposed timelines that are significant to counties. Specifically, this order extends the statutory deadline for presenting claims against public entities pursuant to Government Code section 911, et seq. by 60 additional days. It also extends the timeline for reimbursement claims from local governments to the State Controller’s Office for costs related to state prisoners pursuant to Penal Code 4750 (j) by 60 days.
The extended timeframes for both claims against public entities and claims by local government to the state for costs related to state prisoners were originally published on March 21st under Executive Order N-35-20.
In addition to these extended timeframes, this order also:
- Waives the 10 percent cash or in-kind matching requirements for state grants awarded to domestic violence service provider organizations.
- Waives the deadline to verify grade point average and waives certification requirements and selective service registration verification for Cal Grant applicants.
- Suspends programmatic deadlines for entities that receive funding from the Energy Commission for the development and deployment of new technologies that support the state’s clean energy and de-carbonization goals.
