Explanation

The bill requires the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to establish a tire hauler license by July 1, 2019 and charge a reasonable fee.

It is estimated that DEEP would set the fee at $500 and at least 1,000 haulers would apply, resulting in a revenue gain of at least $500,000 in FY 20.

DEEP would incur costs of $130,000 in FY 20 (plus associated fringe benefits of $47,229) to hire two Environmental Analyst II positions to manage the newly established tire hauler licensure program.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation and the number of tire haulers that register with DEEP.

1 The fringe benefit costs for most state employees are budgeted centrally in accounts administered by the Comptroller. The estimated active employee fringe benefit cost associated with most personnel changes is 36.33% of payroll in FY 19 and FY 20.
