S.F. No. 1176 - Local Government Public Safety Employees on Authorized Leave Reimbursement - the First Engrossment
Author: Senator Sandra L. Pappas
Prepared By: Stephanie James, Senate Counsel (651/296-0103)
Date: March 24, 2015


Establishes a grant program for the state to reimburse local units of government for salary and benefits paid to public safety employees who are members of the National Guard, a state militia, or any reserve component of the military or navy, who take leave to fulfill their duties to the National Guard or reserve component. 

Section 1 [Reimbursement grants] adds to the list of the adjutant generals powers, the administration of the reimbursement grant program established in the next section of the bill and making payments under the program.

Section 2 [State reimbursement for costs of authorized leave] requires the adjutant general to make grants to local units of government to reimburse them for salary and benefits paid to public safety employees on authorized leave.  Sets a deadline of March 15 each year for a local government to apply for reimbursement and sets July 15 each year as the deadline for the adjutant general to make payment of the grants. Requires the adjutant general to prescribe the form and supporting information that a local government must supply as part of the application for state reimbursement.  If the amount appropriated to the fund is insufficient to pay all requested grants, the adjutant general will reduce each grant proportionally.  This grant program is available for costs incurred in calendar year 2016 and after.
