Housekeeping is one of the most important functions that can go unnoticed by those who work in public service.
Housekeeping includes the cleaning, organizing and maintaining of the offices and homes of public servants, and cleaning and organizing the furnishings and equipment.
It also includes the management of the household budget.
In 2015, state lawmakers approved a law that would increase housekeeping costs, making it a mandatory job for public servants to get a Housekeeper license.
The bill, sponsored by state Rep. Richard A. “Dick” Meeks (D-Brooklyn), would increase the fee for a Housekeeping license from $16 to $32, which is $4 more than what it would cost to work as a full-time employee.
The bill also required that the fee be paid by public servants who do not work for the state.
The state House of Representatives passed the bill in May, but the bill stalled in the Senate, where lawmakers have been fighting for a legislative fix.
That stalled bill was eventually re-introduced in August and passed by a vote of 26-2.
A Housekeeping bill is a bill that increases the salary of the person doing the work, and it would increase from $15 to $16 for the first five years of the new license, to $24 for five years.
The fee increases to $33 per year for those who do work for other state agencies.
A state official told The News that the bill does not have the support of the state Senate.
The House of Assembly is expected to pass a bill on Thursday that will extend the Housekeeping law through 2019.
The House of Reps.
said in a statement that Housekeeping costs are a result of a lack of financial oversight by the Department of Public Safety.
“It is a critical function that provides the public services they rely on,” the statement said.
“We will continue to focus on making sure the Housekeepers job is done safely, properly and efficiently.”
