10 - EQUITY CLAIMS
This program includes all claims approved by the three-member California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board and referred to the Legislature in the omnibus claims bills for payment. The program provides an equitable procedure for the payment of the following categories of claims:
- Claims for which no appropriation has been made or for which no fund is available, but the settlement of which has been provided for by statute or constitutional provision.
- Claims for which the appropriation made or fund designated is exhausted.
- Claims for which settlement is not otherwise provided for by statute or constitutional provision.
The California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board must submit special appropriation measures under Chapter 182, Statutes of 1976, at least twice during each calendar year. Current year expenditures for the payment of 2007-08 equity claims include funds appropriated by Chapter 509, Statutes of 2007.
20 - SETTLEMENTS AND JUDGMENTS
This program includes claims paid through "judgments and settlements" bills sponsored by the Department of Justice each year.

Current year expenditures for the payment of 2007-08 judgments and settlements are appropriated by Chapters 87 and 510, Statutes of 2007.
