SDCTA OPPOSES AB 1250 (2017)
AB 1250 does not seem to provide a valid solution to high-cost or low-quality services. The additional cost and legal risk created by the regulations in AB 1250 could discourage counties from seeking outside professional service providers when necessary and could discourage contractors from bidding to provide services. Additionally, AB 1250 limits the ability of county officials to perform their duties and make judgments about how to best provide important services to their communities. This measure would greatly affect San Diego County, which relies heavily on contracting for services such as behavioral health.
