Fiscal Detail and Notes
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) may be required to issue approximately 150 additional Permit By Rule (PBR) permits to allow new structures or expansions to existing structures to protect property from natural disasters. The fee per PBR application is $65 and would generate additional revenue of $9750 in FY2009-10 and 2010-11  It is anticipated that all PBRs would be issued over the next two-year period and minimual revenue is expected thereafter. Additional costs to DEP in issuing the PBRs can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
