Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    Certain Federal grant programs have, as a condition of eligibility for receipt of the grant funds, statutory or regulatory requirements for the establishment and maintenance of personnel standards on a merit basis for recipients' personnel engaged in administration of the grant-aided program. These programs include, but are not limited to: programs under various titles of the Social Security Act such as Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Unemployment Insurance and Employment Services, Old-Age Assistance for the Aged, Aid to the Blind, Aid to the Permanently and Totally Disabled, Aid to the Aged, Blind or Disabled, Medical Assistance (Medicaid), and Foster Care and Adoption Assistance; State and Community Programs on Aging; and, the Food Stamp Act.
    Certain provisions of the proposed legislation appear to be in conflict with the required merit system standards and could jeopardize the State's elibility for receipt of Federal funds for these grant programs.

3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    The costs reflected in the above estimate include FY 2011 budgeted Federal funds for programs requiring a merit system of personnel administration such as Rehabilitation Services programs, Unemployment Insurance and Employment Services. Medicaid should also be included in the estimate, bringing the total to $2,907,005,659, but could not be included because the fiscal note form would not accept more than 9 figures. The estimate is based on the cost of providing the same services without Federal funds effective beginning Fiscal Year 2012.
