Explanation

The bill will result in a cost to the Department of Public Utility Control (DPUC) in the amount of approximately $50,000 each fiscal year. These costs are associated with holding any additional 16 contested case proceedings each year since the bill requires DPUC to conduct a contested case performance review for each of the 33 video providers in the state every 2 years. The additional costs are mainly for out-sourced administrative work such as transcriptions.

The Out Years

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