No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

Summary: HB 1115 would expand the eligibility requirements of the Alternative Fueling Facilities Program. This program provides government grants to private businesses for certain types of fueling stations. HB 1115 would provide grants to facilities in more locations in the state.

Analysis: HB 1115 would represent an expansion of an already dubious government program that that rewards politically favored industries and distorts free markets.
