this office has detemined the following:
         Biennial Net Impact to General Revenue Funds by SB118-As Engrossed
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal 
basis for an appropriation of funds to implement the provisions 
of the bill.  The Texas Education Agency identified administrative 
costs of $47,684 annually to implement the provisions of the 
bill.  It is assumed that the provisions can be implemented 
within existing resources. 
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government 
is anticipated.
