SB 5012 - DIGEST

Finds that the ability of government to fulfill its constitutional and statutory responsibilities by continuing to conduct essential functions and services during the periods of significant disruption that follow catastrophic incidents requires both continuity of operations planning by individual agencies and continuity of government planning by state and local government.

Requires all levels and branches of state and local government to conduct planning and preparation for continuity of operations and government to assist in fulfilling these responsibilities.

Takes effect if the proposed amendment to Article II, section 42 of the state Constitution, providing governmental continuity during emergency periods resulting from a catastrophic incident, is approved by the voters at the next general election.
