NO FISCAL IMPACT
February 23, 1998
Scott Nachtrieb (866-4752)
TITLE: CONCERNING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF TRANSPORTATION PLANNING REGIONS BY THE TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION.
Summary of Assessment
The bill would allow each metropolitan planning organization's metropolitan area to be a transportation planning region, rather than requiring that five of the transportation planning regions be the existing metropolitan planning organizations. The maximum number of transportation planning regions established by the Transportation Commission may increase if additional new metropolitan planning organizations are designated.
The bill would clarify the areas that are to be included in a metropolitan planning organization's metropolitan area. This clarification would not change existing revenues, expenditures, or workloads for state or local governments. Therefore, this bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
