Explanation

A section by section fiscal impact is presented below. The other sections of the bill have no fiscal impact because they make technical, clarifying or conforming changes to current practice or federal regulations.

Section 48 requires notification to parents when there will be a specific age difference among students being transported on a school bus and results in no cost to local and regional school districts. It is assumed such notification would be given to parents in the general information packets supplied to students each year.

Section 49 will result in a minimal revenue loss due to exempting a vehicle with a certain snow plow from obtaining a permit.

Section 51 of the bill repeals section 51 of HB 5164 which issues a new “wrecker towing or transporting emergency permit” which will eliminate a revenue loss to the Special Transportation Fund of $30,000.

The bill also changes the State Traffic Commission to the Office of State Traffic Administration within the state Department of Transportation which has no fiscal impact.

House “A” strikes the underlying bill and its associated fiscal impact, and results in the impact described above.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future.
