BILL NUMBER:S2838B

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to requiring a study and report on
methods to modernize information collection, retention and
dissemination practices in the state; and providing for the repeal of
such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE: This legislation provides for a study and report, a first
step in enacting plans to reduce the paperwork burden on entities
doing business with the State, which would examine the following
issues:

a) information resource management policies and guidelines and the
possibility of developing uniform policies and guidelines in this
area;

b) how information is collected and retained by state agencies and
what potential there is to modernize these functions in order to
reduce paper waste and cost to the state agencies;

c) how information is made available to the public and whether
opportunities to modernize, reduce paper waste, and reduce cost exist;

d) the best ways to modernize the information resource systems to
reduce waste and cost while maintaining privacy, confidentiality, an
security of information as needed or required and what challenges
exist in this area;

e) whether information technology solutions exist to address the needs
of the state agencies regarding lowering waste and cost in their
information management systems.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Establishes that he director of the office for technology,
in conjunction with the director of budget, the director of state
operations, and the secretary of state, and in consultation with the
state comptroller, shall study and issue a comprehensive report on
methods to modernize the information collection, retention, and
dissemination practices of agencies in the state. In addition this
section establishes the contents of the report as described above, the
due date for the report and the report recipients.

Section 2. provides for the enacting date and the date that the act is
appealed, April 1, 2016.

JUSTIFICATION: This legislation will lead to reduction of costs
associated with paper- work both internal to agencies and for those
filing forms and reports with agencies. At the federal level, the
federal paperwork reduction act resulted in reductions in the burden
of Paperwork compliance each year since 1995. (see
HITE://WWW.WHITEHOUSE.GOV/ONB/INFOREG PRAREP2/.ct)

Reducing costs is a goal that will save the state and filers money,
enable the state to be more transparent, and assist businesses in
viewing the State as a partner rather than an obstacle to creating
jobs and meeting their compliance obligations.
