(a) The Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, in consultation with the Division of Apprenticeship Standards of the Department of Industrial Relations and the Superintendent, shall annually review the amount of state funding necessary to provide the reimbursements specified in Section 79149.3, and shall include an estimate of required funds in its budget for each fiscal year.
(b) If the amounts appropriated in any fiscal year are insufficient to provide full reimbursement, the hourly rate specified in Section 79149 shall be reduced on a pro rata basis only for reported hours that are in excess of the number of hours allocated at the beginning of the fiscal year so that the entire appropriation is allocated.
(c) If the amount appropriated is in excess of the amounts needed for full reimbursement pursuant to subdivision (h) of section 79149.3, any excess shall be allocated to community college districts to be used for the purpose of the state general apportionment.
