Local fiscal stress. Provides that a task force appointed by the Governor to review state mandates imposed on localities and to recommend temporary suspension or permanent repeal of such mandates, in making its recommendations, shall consider the measure for Fiscal Stress published by the Commission on Local Government of the Department of Housing and Community Development and the impact of such fiscal stress upon the ability of certain localities to meet state mandates. In addition to its other responsibilities, the task force shall consider and recommend possible state incentives to encourage those localities that are designated by the Commission on Local Government as having above average fiscal stress to take actions or adopt procedures that may help alleviate such fiscal stress.
