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
professional legal collective bargaining unit negotiated for the 2013-14 fiscal year
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.
