Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, no later than September 15 of each even-numbered year,
each executive state agency must file with the Department of Administration the
agency's budget request for the succeeding biennium. This bill requires each agency
to include with its biennial budget request, and to submit to the governor and the
legislature, a report that lists each fee the agency is authorized to charge. The report
must also include the following:
1. The amount of each fee or the method of calculating the fee if there is no fixed
amount.
2. An identification of the agency's statutory authority to charge each fee.
3. A statement whether or not the agency currently charges the fee.
4. A description of whether and how each fee has changed over time.
5. Any recommendation the agency has concerning each fee.
The bill defines “fee” as any amount of money other than a tax that an agency
charges a person other than a governmental entity.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
