Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement for Original Bill

Fiscal Note Required: Yes
Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement
Potential increase in grants - Other Special Revenue Funds
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Removing the $30,000 limit on Agricultural Development Grants and allowing individual grants to go from 20% of the total funds available to be granted in a given year to 50% will not impact the amount of funds appropriated to the Agricultural Development Grant Fund. However, this change may result in some projects receiving more funding than they would have had this provision not been in place and some programs receiving less.
