Minor revenue decrease - General Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Any additional costs to the Department of Marine Resources (DMR) from modifications to the definition of offal, marine demonstration license eligibility requirements and seafood license endorsement requirements are anticipated to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.   Provisions allowing DMR to permanently revoke the marine demonstration license of a person who does not release or return organisms harvested for demonstration purposes may result in a minor loss of General Fund revenue.
