The California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Proposition 39) – Citizens Oversight Board

Overview

The California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Prop. 39) changed the corporate income tax code and allocates projected revenue to California's General Fund and the Clean Energy Job Creation Fund for five fiscal years, beginning with fiscal year 2013-14. Under the initiative, it is estimated that up to $550 million annually will be available for appropriation by the Legislature for eligible projects to improve energy efficiency and expand clean energy generation in schools.

Prop. 39, its enabling legislation (Senate Bill 73, Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review, Chapter 29, Statutes of 2013), and subsequent legislation (Assembly Bill 2227, Quirk, Chapter 683, Statutes of 2014) provides for the establishment of a Citizens Oversight Board to review expenditures, audit the Clean Energy Job Creation Fund, and maintain transparency and accountability of this fund. Per Assembly Bill 2227, the Citizens Oversight Board principle office is located at the California Energy Commission in Sacramento, California. Members of the Citizens Oversight Board are appointed by the California Treasurer, Attorney General and Controller with two ex officio members from the California Energy Commission and the California Public Utilities Commission.
