Explanation

There may be a cost of less than $1,000 to agencies participating in the task force to study the effects of obesity on children's health, related to reimbursing legislators and agency staff for mileage expenses.

There is no cost associated with adopting a policy to explore prohibiting school employees from (1) preventing certain students from fully participating in recess or (2) requiring certain students to engage in physical activity as a form of discipline, as such changes are procedural in nature.

House “A” struck the underlying bill and its associated fiscal impact and replaced it with the cost identified above.

The Out Years

There is no ongoing fiscal impact as the task force terminates in FY 15.
