Explanation

The bill results in a potential cost to the Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) beginning in FY 12. Costs would be due to the potential need to inspect products in ensuring that they did not contain bisphenol-A beginning in October 2011. The bill does not require the DCP to carry out such inspections and therefore no additional funding would be required for the agency.
