"AN ACT CONCERNING POLICE MISCONDUCT. "

After the last section, add the following and renumber sections and internal references accordingly:

"Sec. 501. Subsection (b) of section 5-278 of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective from passage):

(b) (1) Any agreement reached by the negotiators shall be reduced to writing. The agreement, together with a request for funds necessary to fully implement such agreement and for approval of any provisions of the agreement which are in conflict with any statute or any regulation of any state agency, and any arbitration award, issued in accordance with section 5-276a, together with a statement setting forth the amount of funds necessary to implement such award, shall be filed by the bargaining representative of the employer with the clerks of the House of Representatives and the Senate within ten days after the date on which such agreement is reached or such award is distributed.

(2) If the General Assembly is in session when such agreement or award is filed, it shall vote to approve or reject such agreement or award within thirty days after the date of filing. The General Assembly [ may] shall approve any such agreement as a whole by a majority vote of each house or [ may] shall reject such agreement as a whole by a majority vote of either house. The General Assembly [ may reject any such award as a whole by a two-thirds vote of either house] shall approve any such award as a whole by a majority vote of each house or by a failure to reject such award as a whole by a two-thirds vote of either house if it determines that there are insufficient funds for full implementation of the award. If rejected, the matter shall be returned to the parties for further bargaining.

(3) Once approved by the General Assembly, any provision of an agreement or award need not be resubmitted by the parties to such agreement or award as part of a future contract approval process unless changes in the language of such provision are negotiated by such parties. Any supplemental understanding reached between such parties containing provisions which would supersede any provision of the general statutes or any regulation of any state agency or would require additional state funding shall be submitted to the General Assembly for approval in the same manner as agreements and awards. [ If the General Assembly is in session, it shall vote to approve or reject such agreement or award within thirty days after the date of filing. ]

(4) If the General Assembly is not in session when such agreement or award is filed, it shall be submitted to the General Assembly within ten days of the first day of the next regular session or special session called for such purpose. [ The agreement or award shall be deemed approved if the General Assembly fails to vote to approve or reject such agreement or award within thirty days after such filing or submission. ] The thirty-day period shall not begin or expire unless the General Assembly is in regular session. For the purpose of this subsection, any agreement or award filed with the clerks within thirty days before the commencement of a regular session of the General Assembly shall be deemed to be filed on the first day of such session. "

This act shall take effect as follows and shall amend the following sections:
