Explanation

The bill bans the installation of recycled tire rubber on municipal and school playgrounds after October 1, 2016. To the extent that a municipality uses recycled tire rubber on playgrounds, there is a potential cost if the municipality chooses a more expensive alternative.

The cost will vary based on: 1) the alternative product a municipality chooses, and 2) the amount of the chosen alternative product needed by the municipality.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to changes in the cost of products municipalities use to replace recycled tire rubber.
