Fiscal Note (Dept. of Central Management Services)
The Department of Central Management Services is unable to project a fiscal impact associated with this proposed legislation due to the following factors: (1) The rapid change of the automobile industry - what manufacturers offer VIN numbers 1/2/4/5 may not be the same manufacturers that offer them tomorrow; (2) Whether master contracts with those manufacturers exist or vvould need to be bid out; (3) Each vehicle purchase is unique in that the type of vehicle that is needed - pickup truck versus a sedan vs. economy car; (4) The amount of vehicles purchased at any given time is dependent upon need a adequate cash flow, which is especially unpredictable.
