(2) "State mandate" means any constitutional, statutory or executive action that requires a local government to establish, expand or modify its activities in such a way as to necessitate additional expenditures from local revenues, excluding any order issued by a state court and any legislation necessary to comply with a federal mandate;

(3) "Local government organization and structure mandate" means a state mandate concerning such matters as: (A) The form of local government and the adoption and revision of statutes on the organization of local government; (B) the establishment of districts, councils of governments, or other forms and structures for interlocal cooperation and coordination; (C) the holding of local elections; (D) the designation of public officers, and their duties, powers and responsibilities; and (E) the prescription of administrative practices and procedures for local governing bodies;

A state mandate that expands the duties of a public official by requiring the provision of additional services is a "service mandate" rather than a "local government organization and structure mandate";

(b) The Office of Fiscal Analysis shall append to any bill before either house of the General Assembly for final action which has the effect of creating or enlarging a state mandate to local governments, an estimate of the cost to such local governments which would result from the passage of such bill. Any amendment offered to any bill before either house of the General Assembly which has the effect of creating or enlarging a state mandate to local governments shall have appended thereto an estimate of the cost to such local governments which would result from the adoption of such amendment.

(c) The estimate required by subsection (b) of this section shall be the estimated cost to local governments for the first fiscal year in which the bill takes effect. If such bill does not take effect on the first day of the fiscal year, the estimate shall also indicate the estimated cost to local governments for the next following fiscal year. If a bill is amended by the report of a committee on conference in such a manner as to result in a cost to local governments, the Office of Fiscal Analysis shall append an estimate of such cost to the report before the report is made to either house of the General Assembly.

(d) On and after January 1, 1985, (1) any bill reported by a joint standing committee of the General Assembly which may create or enlarge a state mandate to local governments, as defined in subsection (a) of this section, shall be referred by such committee to the joint standing committee of the General Assembly having cognizance of matters relating to appropriations and the budgets of state agencies, unless such reference is dispensed with by a vote of at least two-thirds of each house of the General Assembly, and (2) any bill amended by either house of the General Assembly or by the report of a committee on conference in such a manner as to create or enlarge a state mandate shall be referred to said committee, unless such reference is dispensed with by a vote of at least two-thirds of each house of the General Assembly.

(e) No bill that creates or enlarges a state mandate to local governments, as defined in subsection (a) of this section, shall be passed without the vote of at least two-thirds of each house of the General Assembly.
