Explanation

The bill increases, from $150 to $200, the fee each member of the Board of Mediation and Arbitration receives for an executive panel session. This results in a cost of approximately $10,300 in FY 18 (partial year) and $13,750 annually thereafter to the Labor Department. This estimate is based on agency data indicating that approximately 92 executive panel sessions were held annually over the past three fiscal years, with three members participating in each session.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the number of executive panel sessions held each year.
