2014 Fiscal Notes

The Office of the State Actuary is responsible for providing an actuarial fiscal note on each pension bill introduced in the Legislature and all amendments that are offered. OSA may also provide an actuarial fiscal note for any bill that changes retirement behavior or impacts assumptions used in pricing pension benefits.

All bill numbers are linked to the bill information system on the Legislature's public website.  OFM-approved fiscal notes may be accessed through the legislative site or directly from the OFM website.  Bills are listed in numerical order, by House bill, then by Senate bill.

Note:  Fiscal notes completed outside of the normal legislative session are not available on the OFM website and are provided here in PDF format.  These fiscal notes are denoted with an asterisk by the bill number.
