The general operating expenses of this study are projected to be $1,125 in fiscal year 2019-20 and $1,125 in fiscal year 2020-21. An estimated $6,190 is available in fiscal year 2019-20 and in fiscal year 2020-21 in the Legislature's budget for legislative studies as well as any balances carried over from prior years for this purpose. Whether these amounts are sufficient to fund all studies will depend on the number of studies authorized by the Legislative Council and the Legislature. The additional costs of providing staffing assistance to the study during the interim can be absorbed utilizing existing budgeted staff resources.
