Fiscal Detail and Notes
This legislation requires licensing and certification fees imposed pursuant to Title 32 of the Maine Revised Statutes for calendar year 2020 be reimbursed utilizing funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) if these funds are eligible to be used for this purpose.  The total amount of licensing and certification fees collected in calendar 2020 has not been determined, but will be calculated for all licensing and certification entities based on the last half of fiscal year 2019-20 and the first half of fiscal year 2020-21.  It is assumed that if ARPA funds are not allowed to be used, no reimbursement will be provided.
