BILL NUMBER:S7768A

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agency or authority shall expire and be deemed repealed on April 1,
2013; 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, 2012, 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Under current law and regulation there are many outdated and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:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
