Explanation

The requirements in the bill requiring at least two employees being present in work areas at solid waste, recycling, or resources recovery facilities, could potentially result in additional employee costs. Additional costs would be passed on either directly or indirectly onto Connecticut Resources Recovery (CRRA) project town ratepayers. The extent of any additional costs is not known at this time.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation.
