HB 1491-FN - FISCAL NOTE

AN ACT relative to mileage for members of the county convention for official business.

FISCAL IMPACT:

      The New Hampshire Association of Counties states this bill will increase county expenditures by an indeterminable amount in FY 2012 and each year thereafter. There will be no impact to state and local revenues or expenditures or county revenues.

METHODOLOGY:

    The New Hampshire Association of Counties states this bill would expand reimbursement of travel expenses for members of county conventions to include attendance for all official business of the convention in addition to convention meetings. The Association is unclear as to the definition of “official business” and is therefore unable to determine how much “official business” travel there might be. The Association states this bill would increase county expenditures by an indeterminable amount in FY 2012 and each year thereafter.
