NO FISCAL IMPACT
February 3, 1998
Janis Baron (866-3523)
TITLE: CONCERNING THE AUTHORITY OF STATE ENTITIES UNDER THE “ADMINISTRATIVE ORGANIZATION ACT OF 1968”.
Summary of Assessment
For purposes of the “Administrative Organization Act of 1968”, the bill includes the following provisions:
• changes the definition of a “type 1” transfer to require such boards and commissions to exercise their powers and perform their duties under the direction and supervision of their principal department;
• allows those boards that are constitutionally created to continue to exercise their statutory powers, duties, and functions independently of the head of their principal department; and
• abolishes the State Administrative Organization Board.
The bill is effective upon signature of the Governor.
The state departments (listed below), have indicated that although the bill will require additional work for the respective executive director’s offices, requiring them to be more involved in the decision making processes of their boards and commissions, the workload can be absorbed within existing appropriations. Therefore, the bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
