AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 7828

File Copy No.: 338

Senate Calendar No.: 238


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: See Below

Explanation

The amendment may result in a fiscal impact to municipalities by allowing municipalities to withdraw from participation in the state employee plan by a vote of the municipality's legislative body or board or directors. It is unclear if this provision can be implemented in conjunction with the mandatory collective bargaining provision in the underlying bill. The fiscal impact depends on what the outcome of any vote is regarding participation in the state employee plan versus alternative health insurance arrangements.
