Santa Cruz and other counties hit with brutal March storms could be out millions of dollars in recovery aid, as state disaster officials have warned - against the backdrop of a severe state budget shortfall - they may not chip in to help rebuild levees and roads, clear landslides and more.
The development could have a significant impact on cities and counties since the funds - which can be anywhere from nearly a fifth to a quarter of total damages - provide a boost to cash-strapped governments rebuilding after natural disasters. Santa Cruz County in particular has been walloped by storms and a tsunami surge that could take months to recover from.
In an effort to save the state about $500,000, California Gov. Jerry Brown has proposed eliminating the Office of the Insurance Advisor and the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board, according to his proposed May Budget Revise.
The Office of the Insurance Advisor within the State and Consumer Services Agency provides the governor’s office with independent policy advice on insurance matters and makes policy recommendations. The governor stated he believes the functions can be performed by existing staff, and by eliminating the OIA, the state would decrease $250,000 of reimbursements and 1.9 personnel years in 2011-2012.
