Explanation

The amendment changes the effective date of the bill from October 1, 2009 to October 1, 2007. This advances the out-year potential fiscal impact as discussed in the fiscal note in file copy #838, to the FY 08 – FY 09 biennium. Therefore, the potential cost may result to the extent that the change in effective date requires a state agency or municipality to make adjustments to an older model wheelchair accessible vehicle.
