3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    The bill creates a new program for Aboveground Storage Tank regulation in Zones of Critical Concern.
    All estimates are based on 100 facilities to be inspected once every 3 years and review of Source Water Protection Plans. Total estimated positions = 3.83 FTE.
    Actual number of regulated sites is currently UNKNOWN at this time so the 100 is an estimate. Estimated capitalization fee is based on 100 site assumption with estimated total revenue for 2014.
    Another bill (SB 373) contains more frequent inspections and would have different fiscal impacts.
