FISCAL ESTIMATE PROCEDURE
jr41 Joint Rule 41. When fiscal estimates required or permitted.
jr41(1)(a)(a) All bills making an appropriation and any bill increasing or decreasing existing appropriations or state or general local government fiscal liability or revenues shall carry a fiscal estimate.
jr41(1)(b)(b) An executive budget bill introduced under section 16.47 (1) of the statutes is exempt from the fiscal estimate requirement under par. (a) but may, if it contains a provision affecting a public retirement system or providing a tax exemption, be analyzed as to that provision by the appropriate joint survey committee.
jr41(1)(c)(c) For purposes of par. (a), a bill increasing or decreasing the liability or revenues of the unemployment reserve fund is considered to increase or decrease state fiscal liability or revenues.
jr41(2) (2)
jr41(2)(a)(a) Fiscal estimates are required on original bills only and not on substitute amendments or amendments.
jr41(2)(b) (b) A bill containing a penalty provision is exempt from the fiscal estimate requirement if the bill contains no other provisions requiring a fiscal estimate under sub. (1) (a).
jr41(3) (3)
jr41(3)(a)(a) The joint committee on finance by the approval of a majority of its members, or either cochairperson of the committee, may transmit electronically a request for the legislative fiscal bureau, or through the department of administration for an appropriate state agency, to prepare a supplemental fiscal estimate on any bill or on a bill as affected by any proposed amendment or proposed substitute amendment if the committee or cochairperson believes that the fiscal estimate on the bill, or on the bill as affected by the proposed amendment, would be substantially different from the fiscal estimate on the original bill.

jr41(3)(e) (e) Any state agency may transmit electronically to the department of administration for transmission electronically to the legislative reference bureau for review by the primary author of an introduced bill under joint rule 48 and for reproduction and insertion in the bill jacket envelope an updated fiscal estimate supplementing the original estimate on any bill if the agency has available better or more current information.
jr41(3)(f) (f) The legislative fiscal bureau or the department of administration shall, if it receives an electronic request under joint rule 48 (3), prepare a supplemental fiscal estimate. If a supplemental fiscal estimate is requested electronically the fiscal bureau or the department shall transmit electronically the prepared supplemental fiscal estimate to the legislative reference bureau for reproduction and insertion in the bill jacket envelope.
jr41(3)(g) (g) A state agency shall transmit electronically any fiscal estimate requested electronically under joint rule 48 (2) to the department of administration for transmission electronically to the legislative reference bureau for review by the primary author under joint rule 48 and for reproduction and insertion in the bill jacket envelope.
