Read the first time February 17, 2011.
To whom was referred a Bill (S. 586) to amend Section 1-11-720, as amended, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to entities whose employees, retirees, and their dependents are eligible, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
HUGH K. LEATHERMAN, SR. for Committee.
EXPLANATION OF IMPACT:
State Budget and Control Board
The Employee Insurance Program indicates there is no fiscal impact with the adoption of this bill. Premiums for local groups are based on the claims experience of that local group, so the experience-adjusted premiums would negate extra costs to the Health Insurance trust fund as a result of the local group's participation.
Office of State Budget
