METHODOLOGY:

The Department assumes the volume of fuel oil to remain at 236,000,000 gallons annually. The Department estimates the repeal of the decrease in the fuel oil importation fee will increase revenue to the fuel oil discharge cleanup fund by $590,000 (236,000,000 gallons * .0025) in FY 2013 and each year thereafter. The additional revenue will result in expenditures of $590,000 for contamination cleanup projects. Additionally, the Department states to the extent county and local governments are reimbursed for fuel oil cleanup costs; they may have increased revenue of an indeterminable amount. If licensed fuel oil distributors pass the fuel oil importation fee on to its customers, state, county and local governments may have an indeterminable increase in expenditures.
