House Calendar No.: 180

OFA Fiscal Note

MINIMAL REVENUE IMPACT

The amendment strikes the underlying bill and its associated fiscal impact.

Section 48 requires notification to parents when there will be a specific age difference among students being transported on a school bus 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 amendment repeals section 51 of house bill 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 amendment also changes the State Traffic Commission to the Office of State Traffic Administration within the state Department of Transportation which has no fiscal impact.
