The act requires the state treasurer to transfer $57 million from the revenue loss restoration cash fund to the family and medical leave insurance fund for use by the division of family and medical leave insurance (division) created under the "Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Act" (PFMLIA). The transferred money is an advance payment of premiums for state employee coverage that the state is required to pay under the family and medical leave insurance program established by the PFMLIA.
The division is required to credit the transferred money to state employer accounts and to annually continue to credit money to the state employer accounts until such accounts have a zero dollar balance and begin owing quarterly premiums as set forth in the PFMLIA. The executive director of the department of labor and employment is required to submit specified reports.
The act reduces the appropriations to state departments for employer premium payments for state fiscal year 2022-23.
