Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Office of the Comptroller)
The Office of the Comptroller estimates this amendment would have an insignificant cost to the operations of individual state agencies, boards, and other state officers. In reference to the Local Records Act, the Office is unable to ascertain the cost to various local governmental entities but would estimate that the cost would be relatively insignificant as well so long as the posting requirement applies to those entities that have a full-time staff.
