Honorable Lois W. Kolkhorst, Chair, Senate Committee on Health & Human Services

SB1145 by Johnson (Relating to reports on the prevalence of eating disorders and eating disorder-related deaths in this state.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
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 Department of State Health Services is required to implement a provision of this Act only if the department receives gifts, grants, or donations for that purpose or if the legislature appropriates money specifically for that purpose. If the department does not receive gifts, grants, or donations and legislature does not appropriate money specifically for that purpose, the department may, but is not required to, implement a provision of this Act using other appropriations available for that purpose.
The bill would require the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to collaborate with the Health and Human Services Commission to prepare and submit a report to the legislature on the prevalence of eating disorders and eating disorder-related deaths before December 1, 2020. The bill would require DSHS to prepare and submit a report to the legislature on the prevalence of eating disorders among youth in the state.
The bill would allow DSHS to accept gifts, grants, and donations from any source to fund expenses incurred from preparing the reports.
The bill would take effect immediately upon receiving a two-thirds majority vote in each house. Otherwise, the bill would take effect September 1, 2019.
This analysis assumes the provisions of the bill can be implemented using existing resources.
Local Government Impact
No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
