                    FISCAL NOTE, 76th Regular Session
                              April 19, 1999
          TO:  Honorable Paul Sadler, Chair, House Committee on Public
        FROM:  John Keel, Director, Legislative Budget Board
       IN RE:  HB2139  by Gutierrez (Relating to compensation for public
               school classroom teachers and full-time librarians for
               additional days of service), As Introduced
*  No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.        *
Local Government Impact
The cost of teacher compensation for additional days of service would be
solely a local cost.  Based on the 187 days of service required for
school year 1998-99, the formula in the bill would increase the minimum
monthly salary of a teacher/librarian by 0.535% for each additional day
of service required.  If the statutorily required number of days
increases, the quotient would decrease slightly for each additional day

It appears that many districts currently reimburse teachers in a similar
manner for additional days of service required locally.  As a result, it
is anticipated that districts would incur relatively insignificant
additional local costs associated with this bill.
