Local Notes and Rule Notes

Minnesota Management & Budget is responsible for managing the local impact notes processes as specified in Minnesota Statute 3.987.


Local Impact Notes: To determine a statewide estimate for a particular bill, Minnesota Management & Budget gathers and analyzes data from local governments and local government associations in the state.


Rule Notes: State agencies may be asked by the legislature to prepare rule notes as specified in Minnesota Statutes 3.985. Rule notes estimate the cost of bills granting authority to adopt rules under the Administrative Procedure Act.
