           contract up to 58% of its vehicular service
           pursuant to such contracts. The bill repeals the

           contracting provision back to the mandatory 50%
           minimum requirement that existed prior to 2007.

           construction project to ensure that the work meets
           specification. The bill changes that amount to 5%
           of the value of the entire project. A public entity
           must make a final settlement within 45 days after
           the contract is completed. If a public entity
           occupies or begins to use all or a portion of the
           construction, the public entity must release the
           withheld percentage or portion within 45 days
           after occupancy or use. The entity may retain
           double the amount of money necessary to cover
           any work that is not up to contract specifications.

           Affordability Act of 2009" and the federal "Patient
           Protection and Affordable Care Act", and related
           federal laws and regulations, the dedication of
           certain moneys in the state constitution may be
           inefficient or obsolete. Further, the state
           economic downturn and the desirability of
           drawing federal matching dollars may warrant
           revisions to the constitutional requirements
           relating to certain sources of revenue. The bill

           of 6 legislators, the governor, or his designee,

           preservation services to families who are not
           involved in the child welfare, mental health, or
           juvenile justice systems, but who may be if they
           do not receive the services. In establishing the
           formula for capped and targeted allocations of
           funding to the county departments for child
           welfare services, the state department of human
           services must take into account a list of statutory
           factors. The bill adds to the list consideration of
           the county department's prior fiscal year
           expenditures on preventive services and the
           number of families served. The bill authorizes a
           county department to receive federal matching
           funds for expenditures by other entities within the
           county, which expenditures meet specified
           criteria. The state department shall retain 5
           percent of any of said federal matching funds
           received by the county department.

           principles as a continuous and rapid process

           eliminating a department's nonvalue-added
           processes, providing feedback on process
           improvements that have the purpose of
           increasing a department's efficiency and
           effectiveness, and measuring the outcomes of
           such improvements. The bill also states that if
           applied, a strategic plan must include a report
           regarding the application of lean government
           principles. Section 4 of the bill requires that no
           later than January 1, 2012, the department of
           personnel must collaborate with the office of
           information technology to create and make
           available to all departments common templates
           and tools for the implementation of lean
           government principles.

           there are 2 funding formulas for district charter              Room 0112
           schools, the application of which depends on
           whether the authorizing school district and the
           charter school meet specified conditions. Under
           one of the funding formulas, the charter school
           receives a portion of the school district's at-risk
           pupil funding through the per pupil revenue
           calculation, regardless of whether the charter
           school enrolls any at-risk pupils. Under the other
           funding formula, the school district pays a portion
           of its at-risk pupil funding to the charter school
           only to the extent the charter school enrolls at-risk
           pupils (adjusted funding formula). The bill allows
           a school district board of education (local school
           board) to elect to use the adjusted funding
           formula for one or more of its istrict charter
           schools, regardless of whether the school district
           or the district charter school meets the specified
           conditions. Before making the election, the local
           school board will hold a public hearing on the
           issue. If the local school board elects to use the
           adjusted formula, it will provide notice to the
           charter schools of the school district at least 60
           days before the deadline for the charter schools
