Synopsis As Introduced Amends the State Mandates Act. Changes references concerning the implementation of service mandates, tax exemption mandates, and personnel mandates. Provides that the appropriate State entity shall determine within 90 days after receiving a claim for reimbursement whether the claim is reimbursable under the Act and shall notify each local government filing a claim of its determination. If the appropriate State entity fails to notify the local government concerning its claim within 90 days, the local government shall assume the claim is reimbursable. Provides that the failure to timely notify the local government relieves the local government of the obligation to implement the mandate. Places identical decision and notification requirements on the State Mandates Board of Review with respect to appeals it handles. Removes provisions authorizing direct appeal to the State Mandates Board of Review if the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity does not respond to a claim for reimbursement within 120 days. Provides that members of the State Mandates Board of Review shall have experience in local government finance. Effective immediately.
