Sacramento, CA - On Sept. 2, Senate Bill 37 authored by State Senator Tony Strickland (R-Thousand Oaks), which requires state agencies to provide electronic pay stubs to employees who participate in the direct deposit program, passed the Senate unanimously.

According to the State Controller, SB 37 can save the State as much as $3.7 million dollars annually by cutting printing costs.

"Senate Bill 37 will take us into the 21st century. During a fiscal emergency and a downward economy we need to think about ways to save money and this is a step in the right direction," Strickland said.

Senate Bill 37 will allow state employees who participate in the direct deposit program to electronically receive their statement of earnings. Those employees who do not wish to participate have the option of continuing to receive a paper version of their statement.

This bill will be contingent upon the funding of the State Controller's 21st century project, which will have the capabilities to carry out this function.

"California is in financial crisis," Strickland said. "Our unemployment rate has hit a record high of 11.9 percent. It is times like these that legislators must push for ways to save our state valuable money."

Senate Bill 37 will now go to the governor.

Tony Strickland represents California Senate District 19, which includes portions of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
