§21.1. Consensus estimating conferences; general provisions

A. The consensus estimating conference is hereby created. Each conference shall develop such official information within its responsibility area as the principals of the conference determine is needed for purposes of the state planning and budgeting system. Such official information shall be based on the assumption that current laws and current administrative practices will remain in effect throughout the period for which the information will be used. The official information developed by each consensus estimating conference shall include forecasts for a period of at least five years unless the principals of the conference unanimously agree otherwise.

B. The official information developed by the Economic Estimating Conference and by the Demographic Estimating Conference shall be used by the other estimating conferences in developing their official information.

C.(1) The membership of each estimating conference shall consist of principals and participants.

(2) A person designated by law as a principal may preside over conference sessions, convene conference sessions, request information, specify topics to be included on the conference agenda, agree or withhold agreement on whether information is to be the official information of the conference, interpret official information of the conference, and monitor errors in official information of the conference.

(3) A participant is a person who is invited to participate in the consensus estimating conference by the principals of a conference. A participant shall, at the request of any principal before or during any session of the conference, develop alternative forecasts, collect and supply data, perform analyses, or provide other information needed by the conference. The conference shall consider information provided by participants in developing its official information.

D. All sessions of the consensus estimating conference shall be open to the public as provided in R.S. 42:11 et seq.
