March 28th – 2013 Regular Legislative Session Day 74

In the House Appropriations Committee Meeting today we’re considering four bills for Executive Action. House Bill 2002 raises the snowmobile annual registration and renewal fee, beginning 90 days after adjournment of the session in which the bill is passed until June 30, 2014, to $40 and raises the snowmobile annual registration and renewal fee beginning on July 1, 2014, to $50.

House Bill 2016 moves the expiration of the Hospital Safety Net Assessment program from July 1, 2013, to July 1, 2017; continues and increases assessments on hospitals based on non-Medicare inpatient hospital days; replaces increased inpatient and outpatient hospital payment rates with grants, supplemental payments, and increased managed care payment rates; and continues the Health Care Authority’s system of quality incentive payments if funds are made available for that purpose.

House Bill 2018 requires the Pension Funding Council to adopt employer-specific additional contribution rates where contributions are made other than immediately after service is rendered, and when the amounts are so insufficient as to otherwise increase contribution rates for other employers or employees within a retirement system.

Senate Bill 5751 requires the Office of Financial Management to compile an inventory of state agency fees and requires the Legislative Evaluation and Accountability Program to publish the fee inventory on its state expenditure information website.
