Minimal

Explanation

There is a potential savings to municipalities resulting from the bill, which prohibits towns from entering into collective bargaining agreements that limit volunteer services. If a municipality entered into such an agreement, it would have to pay employees rather than rely on volunteer labor. To the extent this bill prevents a municipality entering into such an agreement, there is a savings that will vary based on the work performed by volunteers.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation.
