AN ACT CONCERNING CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS OF COMMISSION SALES STABLES.

OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill changes the livestock auction fee, administered by the Department of Agriculture, from $190 annually, to a biennial fee of $380. This is not anticipated to result in a fiscal impact. It would however, shift revenue collection from annual to biennial. There was one livestock auction licensed in FY 15, generating $190 in revenue.

The bill makes other changes to private livestock auctions which do not result in a fiscal impact to the state or municipalities.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the number of licensees.
