Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):

Please explain increases and decreases in personal services, current expenses, repairs and alterations, assets, other costs and revenues, including assumptions and data sources and delineation between start-up and ongoing costs. Please also include a long-range schedule of costs and revenues if fiscal impact is expected to vary in future years. The production data for 2020 indicates that there were 13,937 wells that produced 10,000 cubic feet of gas per day or more which would raise $1,351,800 per year. Passage of this bill would allow the Office of Oil and Gas to bring back the 9 field staff which were part of the staff reduction in 2020 due to revenue issues. It would also shore up the budget for the Office of Oil and Gas.


Please identify any areas of vagueness, technical defects, reasons a bill would not have a fiscal impact, and/or any special issues not captured elsewhere on this form. None
