Explanation

The bill as amended requires regional planning organizations (RPO) to establish a voluntary process for pre-application review for projects of a regional significance. Additionally, the bill requires state and local agencies to participate in the review upon the RPO's request, which is a state mandate. It is unclear what these required reviews entail, and it is unknown whether state and local agencies will incur costs related to such reviews.

House “A” strikes the original bill and replaces it with provisions that did not change the fiscal impact on the underlying bill.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above is indeterminate.
