STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nineteen
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
189:64-a Emergency Medical Kits. Within 2 years of the effective date of this section, every public and nonpublic school shall provide each classroom with an emergency medical kit. A list of recommended components for such kits is available from the Nashua police department.
2 Appropriation. The sum of $200,000 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019 is hereby appropriated to the commissioner of the department of education for the purpose of supplying schools with emergency medical kits. The governor is authorized to draw a warrant for said sums out of any money in the treasury not otherwise appropriated.
HB 733-FN- FISCAL NOTE

* This bill makes a general fund appropriation of $200,000 in FY 2019, however the effective date of this bill is July 1, 2019 (FY 2020).
This bill requires that within two years, every public and nonpublic school provide each classroom with an emergency medical kit. This bill also appropriates $200,000 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019, to the Department of Education for the purpose of supplying the kits, however, this bill’s effective date is July 1, 2019, which would be after the expiration of the appropriation. The Department of Education estimates there could be as many as 13,000 classrooms statewide, which would require an emergency medical kit. In consultation with the Division of Homeland Security, who received a list of contents from the Nashua Police Department, the Department of Education estimates each kit to cost approximately $120. Therefore, the total cost over two years to outfit each classroom with an emergency medical kit would be an estimated $1,560,000 (13,000 classrooms X $120 per kit). Given the aforementioned technical issue with the general fund appropriation, it is unclear how much of this cost, if any, would be to the state and how much would be to local school districts.
