Huge Cache of Kirwan Blueprint Data Now Available

The Department of Legislative Services has posted a sizable set of data and background information relevant to the Kirwan Blueprint plan and legislation, including additional details on its fiscal effects and underlying assumptions.

DLS, the nonpartisan staffing agency to the General Assembly, provides budget analyses and prepares “fiscal notes” on pending legislation, and offers professional staff support to the legislative functions. DLS staff played a major role in coordinating the fiscal estimates and information supporting the work of the Kirwan Commission, followed by the legislation arising from its recommendations.

This week, an additional wave of documents and data is publicly available to Kirwan stakeholders – available on the Education section of the DLS webpage:
