AB 1998 (Achadjian) – Support
Chapter 245, Statutes of 2012

Governor Brown signed AB 1998, by Assembly Member Katcho Achadjian, into law on September 7, 2012. This measure will help counties bridge the “digital divide” for human services recipients by allowing counties to donate surplus computer property directly to recipients. 

Each county may choose to create the donation program, and recipients would receive surplus computer components based on a randomized lottery. The donated computers and equipment will help recipients of public assistance search for, secure, and maintain employment and participate in other required program services.
