Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement
Legislative Cost/Study
Legislative Cost/Study
The general operating expenses of this study are projected to be $650 in each of fiscal years 2015-16 and 2016-17. The Legislature's proposed budget includes $10,000 in fiscal year 2015-16 and $10,000 in fiscal year 2016-17 for legislative studies.  Whether the amounts are sufficient to fund all studies will depend on the number of studies authorized by the Legislative Council and the Legislature. The additional costs of providing staffing assistance to the study during the interim can be absorbed utilizing existing budgeted staff resources. If more than 2 meetings are held during the interim the estimated cost for each additional meeting is projected to be $250 per meeting for legislative per diem and expenses.
