joint rule 41 (2) (b); and to renumber
joint rule 41 (2) (a); relating to:
2fiscal estimate requirements for bills containing penalty provisions.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current joint rules provide that bills containing penalty provisions are exempt
from any fiscal estimate requirements unless the bills contain provisions other than
penalty provisions that would make them subject to fiscal estimate requirements.
This joint resolution eliminates that provision.
3Resolved by the assembly, the senate concurring, That:
Joint rule 41 (2) (a) is renumbered joint rule 41 (2).
Joint rule 41 (2) (b) is repealed.
