State payment for State Mandates Act. Provides that a law or regulation which requires a county or municipality to perform or administer a new or expanded program or service shall not be operative unless the state pays the net additional cost of the program or service. Net costs are the total cost of the program or service less revenues receivable by the locality for the program from user fees, categorical state or federal aid, earmarked revenue sources, and offsetting savings from programs which may be eliminated or reduced by implementing the new program. The General Assembly must appropriate funds for the net additional cost in the appropriations act. A Local Mandates Section is established within the Department of Planning and Budget. The Section will prepare local impact statements on applicable bills and proposed regulations establishing the net additional costs of a program or service for each affected local government. A Local Government Mandates Appeals Board also is established to which a county or municipality may appeal if it believes that a law or regulation has been adopted in contravention of the Act or that a Local Mandates Section estimate of net additional costs demonstrably is inadequate. If the Board upholds the appeal, the law or regulation will be inoperative for the affected localities until the net additional costs are provided in the appropriations act.
