HB402 by Davis, Sarah (Relating to a medal for certain members of the state military forces who served during the Cold War; authorizing a fee.), As Engrossed
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Government Code to allow certain members of the state military forces who served during the Cold War to receive the Cold War Medal. It is assumed the provisions of the bill can be implemented within existing resources, because the bill stipulates that the Cold War Medal may be awarded only if a fee in the amount necessary to cover the costs of awarding the medal is paid to the Adjutant General's Department. The bill would take effect on September 1, 2013.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
