(a) The Legislature recognizes that child care programs have made valuable contributions towards ensuring that public assistance recipients will be able to accept and maintain employment or employment-related training. Therefore, it is the intent of the Legislature that the Superintendent ensure that counties comply with the requirements of Section 8279.

(b) The Superintendent shall ensure each county’s compliance with Section 8279 by not issuing funds to a local child care contractor within a county until the Superintendent has received written certification from that county that the level of expenditure for child care services provided by the county has been maintained at the 1970-71 fiscal year level pursuant to Section 8279. Funding provided by a county to a local child care contractor shall not adversely affect the reimbursement received by the agency from the Superintendent pursuant to Section 8265, 8265.5, or 8266.
