AB209,1,2 1An Act to create 13.0976 of the statutes; relating to: requiring economic impact
2statements on certain legislative proposals.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill provides that if a legislative proposal directly or substantially affects
any of the following, DOA must prepare an economic impact statement on the
proposal within 30 days of the proposal's introduction: crimes or criminal penalties;
first class cities; primary or secondary education; public benefits; local government
procurement policies; or probation, parole, or extended supervision. The economic
impact analysis must contain information about the economic effects of the proposal
on racial groups, economic classes, and gender groups. The bill further provides that
the economic impact statement must contain a finding on whether the proposal has
a disparate impact on any racial groups, economic classes, or gender groups.
Under the bill, a proposal that requires an economic impact statement must
have that requirement noted on its jacket when the jacket is prepared. In addition,
under the bill, when a proposal that requires an economic impact statement is
introduced, the LRB must submit a copy of the proposal to DOA.
Finally, the bill provides that no proposal that requires an economic impact
statement may be acted on by either house until DOA has prepared the economic
impact statement and the economic impact statement has been distributed to the
legislature.

For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
