AN ACT CONCERNING THE ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE AND DEMENTIA TASK FORCE'S RECOMMENDATIONS ON TRAINING.

As Amended by Senate "A" (LCO 5014)

Senate Calendar No.: 133


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

There is no fiscal impact to the Department of Public Health (DPH) from requirements under the bill to amend the Public Health Code and regulations, nor is there any impact from the expansion of education requirements for certain applicants for licensure and licensure renewal. Similarly, the bill is not anticipated to result in a cost to the Department of Social Services as the training provisions in the bill are either already being conducted as a matter of practice or can be accommodated within the current training process.

Senate “A” struck provisions which modified the medical education requirements of certain DPH licensees and also eliminated a requirement that police basic and review training programs include training on cognitive disorders and diseases.

Senate “A” eliminated a cost of approximately $50,000 in FY 15 and $2,500 annually thereafter for the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection and various municipalities related to the training provision.
