Explanation

The bill eliminates 32 state boards and commissions and designates a successor agency for, or transfers the duties of, three of them. The bill also makes minor changes to several other entities and repeals obsolete language.

Agencies may realize a minimal savings, estimated to be less than $1,000, by not having to reimburse staff for mileage expenses for participation on certain boards and commissions.

House “A” maintains the Committee to encourage employment by state of persons with disabilities. This is not anticipated to result in a fiscal impact.

House “B” requires the Connecticut Commuter Rail Council to study and investigate the daily operation of commuter rail lines in the state. This is not anticipated to result in a fiscal impact.

The Out Years

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