Fiscal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Department of Central Management Services)
HB 4812 (H-AM 1) will have a minimal fiscal impact on the Department of Central Management Services. Due to the permissive language in the bill, along with the ability to use up current inventory, the only cost would be the execution of a cost comparison study to compare "green" cleaning supplies against current supplies.
