Explanation

This bill, which allows the legal guardian of a person whose birth is the subject of an acknowledgment of paternity to obtain a certified copy of the acknowledgment, results in a potential minimal revenue gain to the General Fund annually. The Department of Public Health's State Registrar of Vital Records collects $30 per certified copy of an acknowledgement of paternity form.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the number of legal guardians of a person whose birth is the subject of an acknowledgment of paternity that obtain a certified copy of the acknowledgment for $30.
