Fiscal Statement

Although the current budget for staff in the Office of Commissioner of Higher Education is approximately $2.4 million per year, the actual fiscal impact of the constitutional amendment cannot be determined at this time, as it would depend upon a budget proposed by the governor and approved by the legislature.[3]
