According to the Legislative Budget Board, no significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. The LBB further notes "According to the Capital Metropolitan Transit Authority (CapMetro), the bill would result in a
significant, positive fiscal impact for the authority. The provisions of the bill would allow
CapMetro to purchase facilities, rather than lease them,and this purchase would result in savings
on both a cash-flow basis and a residual asset basis. Using as an example a proposed paratransit
operations and maintenance project, financed over 15 years or leased over 20 years, the bill would
result in $20,583,609 in cash flow savings and a further $121,402,089 in residual assets compared
to a leasing alternative."
