Explanation

The bill extends, by one year, certain brownfield mitigation activities as required by PA 13-308 (Sections 31 and 32). To the extent the bill delays these actions (such as performing certain sampling or erecting fencing) owners of brownfield sites, including municipalities, may realize costs in FY 17. There would be no cost in FY 16 as the bill extends the requirements of Sections 31 and 32 of PA 13-308 to FY 17.

The Out Years

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