Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement
Potential current biennium cost increase - General Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Waiving the State's "sovereign immunity" defense and allowing the Department of Health and Human Services to be sued for damages over past actions taken could generate General Fund costs in the current biennium, assuming DHHS loses or settles the suit. No estimate of the cost can be made at this time.
