For those who need or want information on how the MISSing Angels Bill impacts each state, we are providing copies here of the official Fiscal Impact Policy reports we have found online at the state websites. Rarely does the MAB create a negative fiscal impact to a State, nor results in additional costs to a State’s Department of Health. This is because MAB legislation is worded to allow the Department to charge a fee for the issuance of a CBRS. Typically, MAB legislation results in positive fiscal impact for a State, for many years.
“Enactment of this legislation will have no adverse fiscal impact on Commonwealth funds. It is anticipated that the authorization for the department to charge a fee for this certificate will offset any departmental costs associated with issuance. House Bill 958 which contains the same provisions passed the House on June 13, 2011 with a vote of 201-0.”
The enactment of this legislation will not result in additional costs to the Department of Health. The proposed fee ($9.00) is anticipated to be sufficient to offset the costs of issuance.
