The above table does not include debt service on the outstanding bonds related to the construction costs of exit 10 improvements, toll collection system maintenance, or E-ZPass back office system expenditures.  Also not factored in is potential costs related to staff lay-offs should any of the seven (7) full-time or four (4) part-time employees working at exit 10 not be able to be relocated.  Therefore, the total net impact of this bill is indeterminable at this time.
