Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill requires individuals filing a petition or request to establish a water level regime to pay a licensing fee of no more than $20,000 to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to cover the costs of any adjudicatory hearing. The amount of savings will depend on the number of adjudicatory hearings held and their costs. No estimate is made at this time of the number or cost of future adjudicatory hearings, although DEP anticipates no more than two water level regime adjudications per year.
