AN ACT CONCERNING ACCESS TO INFORMATION REGARDING THE SAFETY OF SPORTS HELMETS.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 3555

File Copy No.: 414

House Calendar No.: 263


OFA Fiscal Note

No Fiscal Impact

This amendment strikes the underlying bill, and replaces it with language that establishes a working group,1 which does not result in a fiscal impact as PA 17-236 prohibits transportation allowances for working group participants.

The preceding Fiscal Impact statement is prepared for the benefit of the members of the General Assembly, solely for the purposes of information, summarization and explanation and does not represent the intent of the General Assembly or either chamber thereof for any purpose. In general, fiscal impacts are based upon a variety of informational sources, including the analyst's professional knowledge. Whenever applicable, agency data is consulted as part of the analysis, however final products do not necessarily reflect an assessment from any specific department.

1 The working group is tasked with the development of recommendations by 1/1/19 for: (1) a rating system of youth athletic protective headgear safety, and (2) public disclosure of these ratings.
