SB1476 by West (Relating to the creation of the veteran entrepreneur program by the Texas Veterans Commission.), As Introduced
|Fiscal Year||Probable Net Positive/(Negative) Impact to General Revenue Related Funds|
|Fiscal Year||Probable Savings/(Cost) from
General Revenue Fund
|Change in Number of State Employees from FY 2011|
It is assumed that TVC would require 3.0 new full-time equivalent (FTE) positions to operate the program totaling $135,000 out of the General Revenue Fund for salaries and wages each fiscal year. Benefit costs associated with those positions, and appropriated to the Employee Retirement System, would total $40,149 out of the General Revenue Fund each fiscal year. In addition, $12,207 out of the General Revenue Fund would be needed each fiscal year for other personnel costs. Travel related expenses for staff to attend meetings and training seminars would total $12,000 out of the General Revenue Fund each fiscal year. On-going operating costs, such as consumable supplies, would be $12,891 out of the General Revenue Fund each remaining fiscal year. A one-time cost in fiscal year 2014 totaling $6,654 out of the General Revenue Fund would be required for telephones, desks, and other office equipment. An additional one-time cost of $5,970 in fiscal year 2014 would be required to print brochures and other materials to promote the program.
The bill would take effect immediately if it receives a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house, as provided by Section 39, Article III, Texas Constitution. Otherwise, the bill would take September 1, 2013.
