FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Environmental Protection Agency)
The Illinois EPA estimates that the enactment of HB 604 will
require approximately $30,000 in FY02 to cover costs associated
with rule making. In addition, the Agency estimates that the
workload associated with FPA amendment reviews will increase by
approximately 50 percent. In FY03, the Agency will need one
additional headcount, at a cost of approximately $60,000. This
position is necessary to perform outreach activities and to
begin implementation of the adopted rules. In FY04, the Agency
will require a second headcount at a cost of approximately
$60,000 to assist with the increased workload associated with
additional reviews of local ordinances, regional/county/city
plans, land use ordinances. Also in FY04, the Agency antici-
pates that the three planning commissions that conduct the
primary FPA reviews will realize an increase in workload and
may require additional funding to perform the expanded reviews.
The Agency also anticipates increased legal costs associated
