Explanation

The amendment changes the effective date of Section 4 of the underlying bill from July 1, 2010 to July 1, 2011. This will postpone for one year; 1) a significant cost to the Department of Revenue Services (DRS) , 2) the potentially significant revenue loss to the General Fund from the sales and use tax, and 3) the corresponding revenue gain to municipalities from the sales and use tax.

In addition the amendment removes section 6 of the underlying bill. This will eliminate; 1) a total potential revenue gain to all municipalities of $6 million to $6.5 million per year beginning in FY 10, and 2) a cost to DRS of approximately $430, 000 in FY 10.
