SB-106

AN ACT CONCERNING THE SALE OF "CONNECTICUT GROWN" PRODUCTS.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 4020

File Copy No.: 7

Senate Calendar No.: 40


OFA Fiscal Note

No Fiscal Impact

The amendment strikes the underlying bill and its associated fiscal impact.

Instead, the amendment allows the Department of Agriculture (DoAg) to designate up to two suitable shellfish beds for use by certain nonprofit educational organizations. Currently, DoAg already designates shellfish areas to regional agricultural science and technology education centers at no cost. As this codifies current practice, there is no fiscal impact.

In FY 17, there was $670,230 collected from shellfish leases and franchises.
