Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill proposes to create transportation planning incentives for communities located on peninsulas.  If this results in higher priorities than determined and assigned by the Department of Transportation (DOT) for certain highways located on peninsulas, costs could increase in order to continue to maintain highways according to the priorities set forth.  Since no additional funding is available, repair and reconstruction to other highways (not peninsulas) may need to be delayed, possibly increasing costs once repairs are made. Any additional costs to DOT related to rulemaking are expected to be minor and can absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
