NO FISCAL IMPACT
November 24, 1998
Scott Nachtrieb (303-866-4752)
TITLE: CONCERNING THE AUTHORITY OF THE TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION TO REGULATE HOURS DURING WHICH HAZARDOUS MATERIALS MAY BE TRANSPORTED THROUGH THE EISENHOWER TUNNEL.
Summary of Assessment
The bill changes the statutory reference as to which state entity regulates the hours during which hazardous materials may be transported through the Eisenhower tunnel. The Transportation Commission has, in fact, regulated these hours. However, the statute indicated that the Public Utilities Commission was responsible for setting these hours. This bill changes the statutory reference to the Transportation Commission. Since the Transportation Commission is already doing this task, there would not be any change to revenues or expenditures to the Department of Transportation or the Department of Regulatory Agencies. Therefore, this bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
