Committee: Marine Resources
Fiscal Note
Minor cost increase - General Fund
Minor revenue decrease - General Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Any additional costs to the Department of Marine Resources as a result of changes to the definition of what constitutes a suspended culture of marine organisms or changes authorizing the department to hold an emergency aquaculture lease for shellfish are anticipated to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources. Provisions allowing the issuance of marine organism aquaculture licenses for more than one calendar year are not expected to result in significant revenue reductions from a reduced number of licenses issued.
