Fiscal Detail and Notes
This amendment removes a requirement in the bill that the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) obtain outside funding to complete a study regarding the potential impact of the New England Clean Energy Connect project and instead transfers $150,000 from the PUC Reimbursement Fund within the Public Utilities Commission to the Maine Environmental Protection Fund within the DEP to fund the cost of the study.  The amendment includes a one-time $150,000 allocation in fiscal year 2019-20 to allow for the expenditure of the transferred funds.
