Fiscal Detail and Notes
This amendment eliminates all General Fund appropriations, Highway Fund allocations and Federal Expenditures Fund allocations in the bill and requires the provisions of the bill be done within existing budgeted resources. The ability of the Department of Labor to conduct investigations into potential violations of the construction safety training requirements for craft workers without impacting existing programs and services cannot be determined at this time. The Department of Transportation has indicated that the cost of increased training requirements on contractors could lead to higher construction bids leading to higher construction costs to the State. The impact on other Department of Administrative and Financial Services programs and activities as a result of absorbing certain costs cannot be determined at this time.
