The New Hampshire Municipal Association was originally contacted on December 23, 2016 and again on January 9, 2017, with followup on January 19, 2017 for a fiscal note worksheet,  which the Association has not provided as of January 27, 2017.

 

METHODOLOGY:

This bill would require municipalities that issue building permits to distribute pamphlets containing asbestos regulations when issuing permits for renovation or demolition of existing structures.  These pamphlets will be produced and distributed to municipalities by the Department of Environmental Services (DES).  The Asbestos Program is partially funded by revenue from licensing and certification fees and notification fees.  DES anticipates a small but indeterminable increase in revenue generated by additional notifications and certifications submitted to the Department as awareness of the asbestos regulations increases and more asbestos abatement work is completed properly and in compliance with the law.  The Department estimates the following costs for printing the required pamphlets based on the number of permits issued by the City of Concord in FY 2015:

 

 

City of Concord

% of State Population (1.3 Million)

City of Concord

Number of Permits Issued for Demolitions and Renovations in FY 2015

Estimated Number of Permits Issued Statewide in FY 2015

 (220 / .032 = 6,875)
