        Creates  the  Use  of  State  Funds  for  Union  Organizing  Act.      
   Prohibits the use of State funds to assist, promote,  or  deter  union      
   organizing  by  the  following: (i) recipients of reimbursements under

   employers receiving more than  $10,000  per  year  under  State-funded      
   programs.    Requires  those  recipients  of  State  funds  who  spend      
   non-State funds to assist, promote, or deter union organizing to  keep      
   sufficient  records,  available  to  the  Attorney  General, as to the      
   expenditure of funds.  Imposes liability  for  State  funds  spent  in      
   violation  of  the  Act  plus  additional civil penalties.  Authorizes      
   enforcement by the Attorney General and State taxpayers.   Applies  to

          FISCAL NOTE (Office Of The Attorney General)                         
          The Attorney General Office has no basis for determining the         
          number of civil prosecutions which may referred to the OAG           
          under this bill. Therefore, the fiscal impact could range from       
          -0- (where no civil prosecutions occur), to an estimated annual      
          cost of $112,000 in salaries, benefits and operating costs for       
          one additional Assistant Attorney General and one Paralegal          
          (where a moderate volume of such prosecutions occur).
