(a) The committee shall establish and charge fees which it determines are reasonably sufficient to cover all of the costs of the committee in carrying out its responsibilities under this chapter. The Tax Credit Allocation Fee Account is hereby established in the State Treasury. The fees shall be deposited by the committee in the Tax Credit Allocation Fee Account and shall be available, upon appropriation by the Legislature, to the committee for the purpose of covering all of those costs, except that fees may be shared, in an amount determined by the committee, with any state or local agency that assists the committee in performing its duties.
(b) Funds deposited in the Tax Credit
Allocation Fee Account are continuously appropriated without regard to fiscal year for purposes of sharing with state and local agencies pursuant to subdivision (a).
(c) Until the time that sufficient fee revenue is received by the committee, the committee may borrow any money as may be required for the purpose of meeting necessary expenses of the operation of the committee, not to exceed the amount appropriated. Any loan made to the committee pursuant to this subdivision shall be repayable solely from moneys appropriated to the committee from the Tax Credit Allocation Fee Account and shall not constitute a general obligation for which the faith and credit of the state are pledged.
(d) There shall be established a subaccount within the Tax Credit Allocation Fee Account named the Occupancy Compliance Monitoring Account.
(e) Fees collected for the purpose of paying the costs of monitoring projects with allocations of tax credits for compliance with federal and state law, as required by Section 42(m) of the federal Internal Revenue Code, and Section 50199.15, shall be deposited in the Occupancy Compliance Monitoring Account to be used solely for this purpose. Any performance deposits forfeited to the committee shall be deposited in the Occupancy Compliance Monitoring Account.
(f) Notwithstanding any other law, the Controller may use the fees deposited in the accounts established by this section for daily cash flow loans to the General Fund or the General Cash Revolving Fund, as provided in Sections 16310 and 16381 of the Government Code.
