OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

This bill prohibits the use or application of sealants made from coal tar on any state or local highway and allows the Department of Transportation in conjunction with the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to enforce the provisions of the bill. It is not anticipated to be a fiscal impact as coal tar is not extensively used by the state or municipalities and the agencies currently have the staff and expertise to enforce the prohibition under the bill if they decide to enforce it.
