the state could be approximately $500 in operating expenditures associated with JESTC publishing new rate sheets and updating the information on the JESTC website. To the extent that local governmental units utilize the Staff Development Center’s overnight room facilities, local governmental units could realize an increase in costs due to the increase in overnight room fees.
II.ESTIMATED EFFECT ON REVENUE COLLECTIONS OF STATE OR LOCAL GOVERNMENTAL UNITS (Summary)
The proposed administrative rule changes are anticipated to increase fee collections. To the extent the JESTC Business Center realizes the occupancy of approximately 4,100 overnight rooms in fiscal year FY 09 as in FY 08, the increase in room rates in the amount of $20.00 per room per night would result in increased revenue collections within the agency of approximately $82,000.
III.ESTIMATED COSTS AND/OR ECONOMIC BENEFITS TO DIRECTLY AFFECTED PERSONS OR NONGOVERNMENTAL GROUPS (Summary)
Due to the Staff Development Center also being available to non-governmental groups as well, non-governmental groups such as businesses will be impacted by these rule changes as the room rates will increase by at least $20 per room per night.
IV.ESTIMATED EFFECT ON COMPETITION AND EMPLOYMENT (Summary)
The effect on competition and employment will be minimal. While local privately-owned conference centers are available, LSP anticipates more new users and existing users than users who have otherwise sought a local privately-owned facility. Law enforcement training facilities are generally used by LA enforcement agencies who would not be able to perform training offered at privately-owned facilities.

FISCAL AND ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT FOR ADMINISTRATIVE RULES
RULE TITLE: Control of Specific Services (LOGO) Signing
I.ESTIMATED IMPLEMENTATION COSTS (SAVINGS) TO STATE OR LOCAL GOVERNMENT UNITS (Summary)
The proposed rule change amends the current rule which established the policy for businesses to install "RV Friendly" logo designations on their facilities by applying to the Department. The amendment lowers the minimum turning radius required by the businesses from 50 feet to 35 feet on all connections and turns, entrances and exits and at the ends of fuel islands.
The proposed rule change requires the department to review applications and install certain decals on the established sign boards at a cost of approximately $20,000 now to be expended in Fiscal Year 2008/2009. The delay in implementation occurred because no potential applicants could meet the original minimum turning radius requirement. The department plans to charge a fee of $25 per installation. It is estimated that 200 existing permittees would apply for 4 installations each so that total implementation costs of approximately $20,000 would be covered by this fee. Future permittees would be charged no additional fee for the "RV Friendly" decal because it would be fabricated with their new
