LD 1079 LR 1925(03)
An Act To Authorize Public Schools To Periodically Test for Radon
Fiscal Note for Bill as Engrossed with:
C "A" (H-251)
Committee: Health and Human Services
Fiscal Note
Minor cost increase - General Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Additional costs to the Department of Education to adopt rules to disburse funding for radon testing to local school administrative units (SAU's) when funding becomes available can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.  The requirement that SAU's use radon-resistant new construction techniques when building a new elementary or secondary school will not have a fiscal impact on school construction costs as radon resistant techniques are already being used in new school contruction projects.
Any additional costs to the Department of Health and Human Services to implement the provisions of this bill are expected to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
