The 3-year projection shall be a statement describing, as accurately as can reasonably be ascertained, all requirements, obligations assumed by the State and other consequences of the bill or joint resolution having a fiscal impact on the State for each of the 3 fiscal years following the effective date of the bill or joint resolution. Such fiscal projection shall, where applicable, include full cost data including, but not limited to, salaries, operating costs, other employment costs (fringe benefits), capital outlay and debt service. Fiscal projections required in this chapter shall be prepared on forms prescribed by the Controller General. If the fiscal projection is not prepared by the Controller General, it shall contain a statement by the Controller General that the Controller General concurs in the sponsor's projection of the fiscal impact of the bill or joint resolution as set forth in the fiscal projection or that the Controller General finds contrary or additional fiscal data which should be included in the fiscal projection. The Controller General shall point out particular ways in which the bill or joint resolution may escalate costs or reduce revenue to the State. The fiscal projection must also state how the estimates were calculated and from what facts or assumptions. In the case of a bill or joint resolution authorizing expenditures or relating to pension or retirement plan as defined by § 1901(b) of this title, such projection shall, in addition to the other requirements of this section, state the estimated actuarial long-term cost of the proposed bill or joint resolution as obtained by the Controller General from the Board of Pension Trustees or other qualified actuarial source. All fiscal projections shall be reviewed or prepared by the Controller General and the same shall be reported to the sponsor in writing.
