No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would require the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to implement the provisions of the bill if the legislature appropriates money specifically for that purpose and if the legislature does not appropriate money specifically for that purpose, TDEM would be allowed to use other available appropriations to implement the provisions of the bill.
It is assumed that the provisions of the bill relating to the emergency plan could be absorbed using existing resources at TDEM and the Department of State Health Services.
