OFA Fiscal Note

NO FISCAL IMPACT

The amendment strikes the underlying bill and its associated fiscal impact.

The amendment requires the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to amend regulations for safe boating operation courses by October 1, 2015. As the agency currently has staff and expertise within the boating division for this purpose, this provision has no fiscal impact.

Additionally, the amendment requires DEEP to make certain information available on its webpage. It is anticipated that DEEP could post a link on their website at no cost. Therefore, this provision also has no fiscal impact.
