Correctional and Judicial Impact Statements
This bill may increase the number of civil suits filed in the court system. The additional workload associated with the minimal number of new cases filed in the court system does not require additional funding at this time.  The collection of additional filing fees may increase General Fund revenue by minor amounts.
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Additional costs to the Maine Labor Relations Board, State Board of Arbitration and Conciliation to implement the requirements of this legislation can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.  Because the cost of any proceedings conducted by the Logging Dispute Resolution Board, established under the authority of the State Board of Arbitration and Conciliation, must be borne by the party against whom the board decides, there is no fiscal impact to the State.
