Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                     STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                            RS 12382C1

In order to permit the Board of Certified Shorthand Reporters to
continue to fulfill its statutory mandate to protect the public
welfare through licensing and enforcement activities, it is
necessary to increase the previously established cap on the amount
that the board can charge for renewal fees.  Increasing the cap
rate on renewals will provide the board with the flexibility to
adopt, by rule, renewal fees that exceed the currently established
amounts.  In addition, the legislation will increase the cap rate
for the total amount that may be charged in the event of a delayed
renewal from one hundred to four hundred dollars.

                         FISCAL IMPACT

In the event that the board were to adopt a fee increasing the
amount of the renewal to the maximum cap amount proposed ($200.00),
given the current number of licensees (233), the amount of revenue
generated would be approximately $46,600.00.
