Bill Caption

Relating to the repeal of the provisions providing for the suspension of the collection of certain fees when the balance in the oil and gas regulation and cleanup fund exceeds a specified amount.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

HB 2675 would repeal a requirement to suspend the collection of certain fees when the balance in the oil and gas regulation and cleanup fund exceeds $30 million. This would allow the fund to accrue an uncapped amount of money.

Vote Recommendation Notes

We oppose HB 2675 because it offends the principle of limited government by removing the cap on this fund and allowing fees to continue being collected regardless of how large the fund may swell.
