Date Introduced 02/15/2019

The bill requires the staff of the legislative council to prepare
demographic notes on legislative bills in each regular session of the
general assembly. The speaker of the house of representatives, the
minority leader of the house of representatives, the president of the
senate, and the minority leader of the senate are authorized to request 5

demographic notes each, or more at the discretion of the director of
research of the legislative council.
The bill requires the staff of the legislative council to meet with
the member of leadership requesting the demographic note and with the
sponsor of the legislative bill to discuss whether a demographic note can
practically be completed for that legislative bill. If not, the member of
leadership may request a demographic note, within the limits specified in
the bill, on a different legislative bill that might be more conducive to a
demographic note's analysis.
A demographic note is defined as a note that uses available data to
outline the potential disparate effects of a legislative measure on various
populations within the state. Populations may be identified by race,
gender, disability, age, geography, income, or any other relevant
characteristic for which data are available.
The bill requires the director of research of the legislative council
to develop the procedures for requesting, completing, and updating the
demographic notes and to memorialize the procedures in a letter to the
executive committee of the legislative council.
Finally, the bill requires each state department, agency, or
institution to cooperate with and provide information for a demographic
note of a legislative bill in the manner requested by the staff of the
legislative council.
