AN ACT CONCERNING THE GOVERNOR'S RECOMMENDATIONS TO IMPROVE ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 3475

File Copy No.: 101

Senate Calendar No.: 108


OFA Fiscal Note

POTENTIAL MINIMAL REVENUE IMPACT

Section 502 of the amendment creates a civil penalty of not less than $1,000 and not more than $4,000 for each payment or transfer of value not reported by manufactures. This penalty may result in minimal General Fund revenue gain to the extent that such manufacturers fail to report and are assessed a penalty. Section 501 establishes continuing education requirements for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), which are not anticipated to affect the number of APRN license renewals and, therefore, do not result in a fiscal impact. Other changes under the amendment are clarifying in nature and do not result in a fiscal impact.
