As Amended by House "A" (LCO 3404)

House Calendar No.: 141


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

The bill reduces the time a mandated reporter has to report suspected abuse and neglect of a person with intellectual disability or autism spectrum disorder. This change is not anticipated to have a fiscal impact since the number of reports to the Department of Developmental Services is not expected to increase, nor are associated fines.

House “A” makes technical changes that have no fiscal impact.
