SUMMARY
Synopsis of Bill
Senate Bill 443 appropriates $50 thousand from the general fund to the Tourism Department for
tourism related projects.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS
The appropriation of $50 thousand contained in this bill is a recurring expense to the general
fund. Any unexpended or unencumbered balance remaining at the end of fiscal year 2007 shall
revert to the general fund.
SIGNIFICANT ISSUES
The bill does not specify a purpose for the appropriation, thus allowing expenditure on any Tour-
ism Department project.
