amount by the fraction equal to the population of cities and counties
that are eligible for payments pursuant to Section 48690, divided by
the population of the state. The board shall use the latest
population estimates of the state generated by the Population
Research Unit of the Department of Finance in making the calculations
required by this paragraph. Notwithstanding subdivision (b) of
Section 48656, the total annual amount shall equal eleven million
dollars ($11,000,000), subject to subparagraph (B).
   (B) If sufficient funds are not available to initially issue full
funding pursuant to subparagraph (A), the board shall provide funding
as follows:
   (i) For the purposes set forth in this paragraph, one-half of the
amount that remains in the fund after the expenditures are made
pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (2) and subdivision (b). The board may
utilize additional amounts from the fund, up to, but not exceeding,
eleven million dollars ($11,000,000).

Legislature in the annual Budget Act, to pay the costs associated
with implementing and operating the Farm and Ranch Solid Waste
Cleanup and Abatement Grant Program established pursuant to Chapter
2.5 (commencing with Section 48100).
   (2) The money in the fund attributable to a charge increase or
adjustment made or authorized in an amendment to subdivision (a) of
Section 48650 by the act adding this paragraph shall not be
transferred to the Farm and Ranch Solid Waste Cleanup and Abatement
Account.
   (d) Appropriations to the board to pay the costs necessary to
administer this chapter shall not exceed three million dollars
($3,000,000) annually.
   (e) The Legislature hereby finds and declares its intent that

   (a) The implementation of subdivisions (b) and (c) of Section
48631 and Section 48651.5, subject to both of the following
requirements:
   (1) The allocation of funds to implement subdivisions (b) and (c)
of Section 48631 shall be at the discretion of the board to be
determined annually in a public meeting and pursuant to a vote of the
board.
   (2) The board shall pay rerefining incentives pursuant to Section
48651.5 if sufficient funds are available in the fund.
   (b) Annual revenues left unspent in excess of one million dollars
($1,000,000) shall be allocated pursuant to paragraph (3) of
subdivision (a) of Section 48653 for local collection programs
adopted pursuant to Article 10 (commencing with Section 48690).




48657.  The board shall keep accurate books, records, and accounts
of all of its dealings, and these books, records, and accounts, and
any amounts paid into or from the fund, are subject to an annual
audit by an auditing firm selected by the board. The auditing firm or
the board shall also conduct a selective audit of entities making
payments to, or receiving payments from, the board to determine
whether payments required by Section 48650 are being paid to the
board on all lubricating oil sold in California, and that grants and
