Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Requiring the Independent Fiscal Office to Prepare Fiscal Impact Statements for All Executive Orders
I am introducing legislation that will help to facilitate joint fiscal accountability between the legislative and executive branches by requiring the Independent Fiscal Office to prepare a fiscal impact statement of general and permanent Executive Orders that are issued by the Governor.

As colleagues in the State Legislature, I trust that you share my concerns regarding our current fiscal state. Now is the time to take necessary steps to strengthen measures that will help to achieve joint fiscal accountability, in the best interest of the citizens of our Commonwealth.

According to the Mission Statement of our State Independent Fiscal Office: “The Independent Fiscal Office (IFO) provides revenue projections for use in the state budget process along with impartial and timely analysis of fiscal, economic and budgetary issues to assist Commonwealth residents and the General Assembly in their evaluation of policy decisions.”

If you are interested in good government policy and transparency in the process, please consider cosponsoring this necessary fiscal accountability proposal.

Introduced as HB826
