BILL NUMBER:S1757

TITLE OF BILL: An act providing for the elimination of burdensome reporting requirements imposed on school districts and local governments

PURPOSE: Provides for the elimination of certain reporting requirements imposed on school districts and local governments.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - Any provision of statute or regulation that requires a local government of school district to submit a report to a state agency or authority shall expire and be deemed repealed on April 1, 2014; provided, however, that all provisions of such statutes and regulations other than such specific reporting requirements shall be unaffected by the repeal of such reporting requirements and remain in full force and effect.

Section 2- Requires that every state agency and authority shall prepare and submit to the mandate relief council, on or before December 31, 2013, a report that identifies each report it receives from local governments and school districts, explains the agency's or authority's need for the report, makes a recommendation to eliminate or continue the reporting requirement and where the recommendation is to continue the reporting requirement, makes additional recommendations including but not limited to the secure electronic transmission of data directly to state agencies and authorities to reduce the burden the reporting requirement imposes on local governments and school districts.

Section 3- Contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Under current law and regulation there are many outdated and unnecessary reporting requirements made on local governments and school districts. This bill would require that a state agency or authority that requires such report justify the need for the report.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012 S. 7768-A Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:; None

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
