The Secretary of State's Office will experience an expenditure increase of about $36,000 in FY11 for statutory publication costs, based on current estimates. This cost is the same for all joint resolutions of this type, assuming the length of the statement on the proposed amendment is roughly the same. Information provided by Pat Arp, Secretary of State's Office, phone: 777-5333.
(This cost may be considered an administrative cost but is listed here for consistency.)
