Fiscal Note Summary

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

    
    A few years ago, the Division of Highways initiated the process of installing the florescent lime green signs on an "as replaced" basis.
    
    We anticipate that by 2010 all school crossing signs will be replaced with the new lime green signs.
