HB-7501

AN ACT PROVIDING FOR THE CONTINUED OPERATION OF ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS OF THE STATE.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 10082


OFA Fiscal Note

See Below

The amendment strikes sections 229-234 and eliminates the potential costs associated with extending the FMLA provisions incorporated in the SEBAC agreement to include non-unionized employees of the state and municipalities.

 The amendment also strikes section 636 and replaces it with language that requires each municipality to reimburse the state for 50% of its portion of the normal cost of the teachers' retirement system in FY 18 and 100% in FY 19 and annually thereafter. This results in revenue to the state and a corresponding cost to municipalities of $91.9 million in FY 18 and $189.7 million in FY 19. This is in conformance with the assumptions included in the revenue schedule adopted by FRB in Sections 596-598.
