Minor cost increase - General Fund
Minor revenue impact - General Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Implementing a mandatory $25 reinstatement fee on violators of certain license or permit rules is expected to result in a minor revenue increase to the General Fund. The elimination of a surcharge on delinquent agents and the granting of a free special antlerless deer permit to those who cannot use their lower limbs is expected to result in a minor loss of revenue to the General Fund.
Any additional costs to the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife for adopting a rule listing waters containing certain State heritage fish and reporting to the Legislature annually are expected to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
The bill also changes the purpose of a $150,000 transfer that was made on or before August 1, 2013 from the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife - Carrying Account to the Administrative Services account within the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. The original purpose of the transfer was for security improvements and renovations at the current Gray headquarters facility. The new purpose is for construction of a new headquarters facility in Gray. It is not currently known how the original purposes for the use of the money will be met.
