No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend Government Code, Chapter 51 relating to local filing fees for certain types of actions. According to the Comptroller of Public Accounts, the agency would incur certain administrative costs to notify municipalities and counties of legislative changes related to implementation of the bill. To the extent the Comptroller would incur such costs, the fiscal implication is not anticipated to be significant. The bill would take effect September 1, 2003.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated. The sliding scale fee table for cases with multiple plaintiffs included in the bill would also result in additional revenues to the counties. To the extent that counties realize additional revenue, the fiscal implication is not anticipated to be significant.
