SB-81

AN ACT CONCERNING THE DESIGNATION OF CERTAIN AREAS OF THE HOUSATONIC RIVER AS A WILD AND SCENIC RIVER.

OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill designates certain sections of the Housatonic River as a wild and scenic river and requires the Governor to apply to the U.S. secretary of the Interior to complete the designation.

The locally initiated wild and scenic river designation would not qualify a river for federal grants under the National Park Service's Challenge Cost Share Program. Therefore, the bill does not result in a fiscal impact.
