S.F. No. 1877 - State Employers Authorization to Contract to Pay Employees Based on the Biennial Appropriation - As Amended by the A-2 Amendment
Author: Senator Mary Kiffmeyer
Prepared By: Stephanie James, Senate Counsel (651/296-0103)
Date: March 11, 2019


Under current law, each agency submits a spending plan to the commissioner of management and budget (MMB) that details how the agency will use appropriations.  The plan is submitted by July 1 and applies to an allotment period specified by the commissioner of MMB.

Section 1 [Limited by Appropriation] precludes the commissioner of management and budget from contracting to pay more to employees in compensation and benefits in a biennium than is permitted under the first spending plan approved by the commissioner of management and budget after a biennial appropriation.
