SB 355-FN- FISCAL NOTE

AS INTRODUCED

 

AN ACT relative to the names of colleges in the community college system.

 

 

FISCAL IMPACT AND METHODOLOGY:

This bill changes the names of the seven colleges within the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH).  This will require many changes that will require expenditures, including but not limited to, the replacement of existing products, such as signage, advertising, and supplies, and sustained marketing, re-branding, and public information effort implementing the name changes.  Based on information provided by all seven colleges, costs to CCSNH to implement the name changes in this bill are estimated to total $954,000, of which $858,600 would be expended in FY 2019 and $95,400 expended in FY 2020.
