Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

The purpose of the proposed bill is to reorganize and redesignate the West Virginia Development Office as a newly created Department of Economic Development and the West Virginia Tourism Office as a newly created Department of Tourism, each as new departments under the executive branch of state government. The proposed bill makes no changes to the West Virginia Economic Development Authority, which is an independent agency under the supervision of the Department of Commerce, and will have no fiscal impact on West Virginia Economic Development Authority’s costs or revenues. The West Virginia Development Office and the West Virginia Tourism Office, both impacted by the proposed bill, should each be requested to submit a fiscal note to provide their estimate of the impact on costs and revenues of state government.
