Fiscal Note Summary


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


    There will be a fiscal impact of reduced revenues to the Worker's Compensation Old Fund if SB 362 is enacted.
    
    There is a Committee Substitute for SB 362, which further impacts the Workers' Compensation Old Fund and also impacts the OIC's Operating Fund.

Memorandum


    We believe the committee substitute for SB362 contains technical defects that need to be addressed before an accurate fiscal note can be produced.
    
    Clarification on the precise NCCI rates to be utilized (Assigned Risk or Loss Costs) and clarification as to whether the 9% surcharge would be applied to every $100 of payroll multiplied by the NCCI class codes (Assigned risk or otherwise) or whether the 9% surcharge is applied without the per $100 of payroll standard needs to be made in the language of the bill.
