Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This proposal is introduced under section 111.92 (1) of the statutes. The
proposal ratifies the collective bargaining contract for state employees in the public
safety collective bargaining unit negotiated for the 2017-19 biennium under the
State Employment Labor Relations Act. Currently, statutory program supplement
appropriations fund the costs of collective bargaining agreements to the extent that
they exceed budgeted costs. The proposal authorizes expenditure of moneys from
those appropriations to fund the cost of this agreement.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
