SB-913

AN ACT MANDATING EMPLOYERS PROVIDE PAID SICK LEAVE TO EMPLOYEES.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 7655

File Copy No.: 76

House Calendar No.: 555

Senate Calendar No.: 97

OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: See Below

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The amendment eliminates the Business Entity Tax retroactive to January 1, 2011, which results in a revenue loss of approximately $40.5 million annually. However, the revenue loss in FY 11 and FY 12 would be offset as the amendment requires the Comptroller to transfer unappropriated General Fund surplus funds equal to the revenue generated by the Business Entity Tax to the resources of the General Fund.

OFA projects a $458 million General Fund surplus for FY 11, and a $369 General Fund surplus in FY 12.1
