CA Welf & Inst Code Section 5704.5


It is the intent of the Legislature that special consideration be given to children’s services in funding county services to expand existing programs or to establish new programs.


A county may not decrease the proportion of its funding expended for children’s services below the proportion expended in the 1983–84 fiscal year unless a determination has been made by the governing body in a noticed public hearing that the need for new or expanded services to persons under age 18 has significantly decreased.
