AN ACT CONCERNING STATUTORY REFERENCES TO THE LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM REVIEW AND INVESTIGATIONS COMMITTEE
SUMMARY: This act repeals the following:
1. a requirement that, every 10 years, legislative committees of cognizance conduct sunset reviews of certain boards and commissions under their jurisdiction and
2. obsolete statutory references to the Legislative Program Review and Investigations (PRI) Committee, including (a) statutes on the committee's composition, powers, and duties and (b) requirements that the committee receive copies of certain reports. (The committee's funding was eliminated in the FY 17 budget.)
Additionally, the act requires that the Office of Policy and Management submit to the Auditors of Public Accounts, rather than PRI, a report on its efforts to maximize federal and other alternative revenues. It also suspends, until January 15, 2018, a requirement that the Committee on Children produce and publicly release an annual report card that evaluates state policies and programs affecting children.
The act also makes several technical and conforming changes.
EFFECTIVE DATE: JULY 1, 2017
