OFA Fiscal Note

SEE BELOW

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.

1 It should be noted that lines 25 and 26 of the amendment conflict with provisions of Section 35 of the underlying bill. Thus it is unclear which growth rate would apply in the calculation of the spending cap.
