AN ACT CONCERNING NEWBORN SCREENING FOR CYTOMEGALOVIRUS AND ESTABLISHING A PUBLIC EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR CYTOMEGALOVIRUS.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 5297

File Copy No.: 494

House Calendar No.: 287


OFA Fiscal Note

NO FISCAL IMPACT

The change to line 38 under the amendment does not result in a fiscal impact as screening for cytomegalovirus will not be performed by the Department of Public Health's Katherine A. Kelley State Public Health Laboratory but by institutions caring for newborn infants. As such, no funding is appropriated for this purpose and no cost for this testing was identified in the fiscal note on the underlying bill.

The preceding Fiscal Impact statement is prepared for the benefit of the members of the General Assembly, solely for the purposes of information, summarization and explanation and does not represent the intent of the General Assembly or either chamber thereof for any purpose. In general, fiscal impacts are based upon a variety of informational sources, including the analyst's professional knowledge. Whenever applicable, agency data is consulted as part of the analysis, however final products do not necessarily reflect an assessment from any specific department.
