Explanation

The bill results in a minimal revenue gain to the state and conversely a minimal revenue loss to municipalities by narrowing the circumstances under which a municipality gets half the revenue from fines collected for certain occupational violations. Under current law the sharing of fine revenue can occur if any town official makes a report. The bill narrows the fine sharing to reports made by local building officials.

The Out Years

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