HB 557-FN-A- FISCAL NOTE
AS AMENDED BY THE HOUSE (AMENDMENT #2019-0303h)
FISCAL IMPACT: [ X ] State [ ] County [ ] Local [ ] None
Estimated Increase / (Decrease)
[ X ] General [ ] Education [ ] Highway [ X ] Other - Harbor Dredging and Pier Maintenance Fund
This bill makes general fund appropriations of $243,750 in FY 2020 and $637,500 in FY 2021 to the harbor dredging and pier maintenance fund for the purpose of dredging the Seabrook/Hampton harbor and the Rye harbor. As amended, the bill also provides that gifts, grants, development fees, and donations from federal, private and other sources may be credited to the fund.
The Department of Environmental Services indicates the bill, as amended would no longer impact the Department's expenditures or revenue since the harbor dredging and pier maintenance fund is administered by the Pease Development Authority, Division of Ports and Harbors. There would be no county or local impact as the counties and municipals typically do not pay for dredging projects.
