AB 2101 Retirement Coalition Support Letter 


Title: AB 2884 California State Lottery: Revenue Allocation
Amended: 7/02/2020
Author: Berman
Status: Senate Floor - Third Reading
Position: Support

Summary:

This bill would make legislative findings and declarations relating to the allocation of Lottery funds to community colleges. The bill would express the intent of the Legislature to ensure that restricted Lottery funding allocated to community colleges is spent in full for the benefit of students. This bill expands the acceptable uses of restricted Lottery proceeds provided to California Community Colleges to include students’ basic needs. Specifically, the bill expands the definition of “instructional materials” to include housing and food assistance for students. The bill was recently amended to an urgency clause, which means if it was signed into law by the Governor, it would go into effect immediately: however, it also means that the bill needs to clear a supermajority (twothirds) threshold in both houses. Considering the bill has been moving through the process with bipartisan support, the supermajority threshold should not be difficult to clear.
