AN ACT CONCERNING VARIOUS REVISIONS TO PUBLIC HEALTH RELATED STATUTES.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 7791

File Copy No.: 544

House Calendar No.: 343

OFA Fiscal Note

NO FISCAL IMPACT

The amendment restricts vaccine-manufacturer-choice to health care providers that administer vaccines to children under the Federal Vaccine for Children immunization program and does not result in a fiscal impact. It also removes the ceiling on the aggregate assessment related to the health and welfare fee, which does not result in a fiscal impact as assessments are structured to cover the costs of the Department of Public Health's immunization program. Therefore, this provision is not anticipated to result in a net revenue gain to the state.

The preceding Fiscal Impact statement is prepared for the benefit of the members of the General Assembly, solely for the purposes of information, summarization and explanation and does not represent the intent of the General Assembly or either chamber thereof for any purpose. In general, fiscal impacts are based upon a variety of informational sources, including the analyst's professional knowledge. Whenever applicable, agency data is consulted as part of the analysis, however final products do not necessarily reflect an assessment from any specific department.
