METHODOLOGY:

This bill authorizes the issuance of a breast cancer awareness license plate for an additional fee of $30 per registration.  The Department of Safety estimates the necessary system changes needed would cost a total of $320,000 (1,600 total hours of effort at a rate of $200/hour), plus an additional $1,000 for a roll of new sheeting for the manufacturing of the plates.  There may also be costs to municipalities to reprogram, test, and certify their software to reflect this bill.  All of the implementation costs are assumed to be incurred in FY 2021.  The Department is unable to estimate the number of breast cancer awareness plates that may be requested and therefore is unable to provide an estimate to this bill’s impact on state revenue.  Also, pursuant to RSA 235:23 (“Apportionment A”), 12 percent of motor vehicle fees collected are distributed to municipalities.  Therefore, in FY 2022 and each year thereafter, this bill will also increase state expenditures and local revenue by an indeterminable amount depending on the number of breast cancer plates issued.
