LD 52 LR 278(01)
An Act Regarding Collective Bargaining Negotiations by Public Employers of Teachers
Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement for Original Bill
Sponsor: Rep. Brennan of Portland
Committee: Education and Cultural Affairs
Fiscal Note Required: Yes
Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement
Certain education policy negotiations optional
Fiscal Detail and Notes
This legislation provides that educational policies related to preparation and planning time and transfer of teachers are permissive subjects of negotiation if both a public employer of teachers and the bargaining agent agree.  Because the bill allows but does not require local school administrative units (SAU's) to negotiate these educational policies, this legislation is not an unfunded state mandate.  Additional costs to those SAU's that choose to include these education policies as part of their collective bargaining negotiations will be funded through the SAU's budgeted resources.
