AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 8458

File Copy No.: 729

House Calendar No.: 474

Senate Calendar No.: 672

OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: See Below

Municipal Impact: See Below

Explanation

The amendment makes a clarifying change that the General Assembly, in considering the plan established by the redistricting commission, may implement legislation that varies from that plan. It also requires that such legislation implement any consolidation for which a municipal petition has been submitted to the General Assembly. It is unclear what effect this would have on the implementation of the probate court consolidation plan, and as such the fiscal impact is uncertain.
