To ensure that it receives timely and meaningful information regarding the status of the BreEZe project, the Legislature should enact legislation that requires Consumer Affairs to submit a statutory report annually, beginning on October 1, 2015, that will include the total estimated costs through implementation of the system at the remaining 19 regulatory entities and the results of any cost-benefit analysis it conducted for phase 3.
Legislation has not been introduced to address this specific recommendation.
AB 507 was introduced on February 23, 2015, and would require the Department of Consumer Affairs, on or before March 1, 2016 or thereafter when available, to submit an annual report to the Legislature and the Department of Finance that includes the department's plans for implementing the BreEZe system at specified regulatory entities included in the Department's 3rd phase of the implementation project, including a timeline for the implementation. The bill would also require the department to post on its Internet website the name of each regulatory entity that is utilizing the BreEZe system once the regulatory entity begins using the BreEZe system.
