FISCAL IMPACT, See Below

The amendment adds the requirement that a municipality must have a property tax cap in effect in order to be eligible to apply for health coverage. At this time, it is not known if any municipality has such a property tax cap. To the extent that the amendment limits the number of municipalities participating in the state health plan, it may result in limiting municipal savings and reducing the state's administrative costs.
