California Government Code
(a) The Legislature may from time to time appropriate or transfer to the guarantee reserve account from funds or accounts that are legally available, an amount or amounts as the Legislature may determine. The Legislature may establish, and from time to time increase, for the guarantee reserve account a requirement that shall be known as the “reserve account requirement.”
(b) If the bank determines that the amount in the reserve account is below the reserve account requirement, the executive director shall immediately certify in writing to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, the Speaker of the Assembly, the Senate Committee on Rules, and the Governor, the sum required to restore the reserve fund to the reserve account requirement.
(c) Upon making the certification, the chief executive officer shall ask the Governor to request an appropriation, and shall use his or her best efforts to have a sum requested and appropriated.
(d) Upon receiving notice that the amount in the reserve account is below the reserve account requirement, the Legislature may, at its discretion, choose to appropriate and pay to the bank for deposit into the guarantee reserve account that sum that would restore the reserve account to an amount equal to the reserve account requirement.
(e) The bank may utilize any moneys that may be appropriated to the guarantee trust fund from time to time by the Legislature for effectuating its purposes, including, but not limited to, the payment of the initial expenses of administration and operation and the restoration of the reserve account to the reserve account requirement.
