California Government Code

Sec. § 70331


If there are one or more pending phases of a project involving court facilities and the responsibility for the facility is to be transferred to the Judicial Council, the Judicial Council may, as part of the agreement under this article, require the completion of those phases of the project, to the extent that county funds or property have been allocated, approved, appropriated, or committed to those phases of the project by resolution or ordinance as a condition of transfer of responsibility to the Judicial Council.


This section applies irrespective of whether title to the building containing the court facilities is to be transferred to the state.


As used in this section, a phase of a project is to be deemed pending to the extent that the board of supervisors has either approved the phase in whole or in part at a board of supervisors meeting, and allocated or appropriated money for the phase in whole or in part, or executed a contract for the phase in whole or in part.


The Judicial Council may request the county to implement design changes relating to the project if either the overall effect of the changes do not increase the costs of the project to the county, or the Judicial Council agrees to pay any extra costs caused by the changes.
