OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill, which requires the State Board of Education (SBE), within available appropriations and using available resource materials, to assist and encourage local and regional boards of education to include in their curricula: (1) labor history and law, including organized labor, the collective bargaining process, and existing legal protections in the workplace; (2) the history and economics of free-market capitalism and entrepreneurialism; and (3) the role of labor and capitalism in developing the American and world economies, is not anticipated to result in a fiscal impact. As of February, 2015, SBE has modified the social studies curriculum to include such topics.
