Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement for Original Bill

Committee: Labor, Commerce, Research and Economic Development
Fiscal Note Required: Yes
Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement
Current biennium cost increase - General Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
According to the Department of Labor, the Regulation and Enforcement program within the Department of Labor will require General Fund appropriations of $25,439 in fiscal year and $33,919 in fiscal year 2016-17 for the costs associated with the increased enforcement activities required under this legislation.  Because this legislation requires the department to perform these additional activities within existing budgeted resources, this preliminary fiscal impact statement does not specifically reflect General Fund appropriations or General Fund costs in each fiscal year.  However, the department has indicated that it will not be able to implement the requirements of this bill within existing resouces without impacting other enforcement activities currently being performed.
