  8        48-506.  DURATION  AND RENEWAL. (1) A registration of mark hereunder shall

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                             RS 14917

The intent of this legislation is to clarify that a fee is
required for each class code in a trademark renewal application.

                           FISCAL NOTE

There are, in the trademark database, over 230 trademarks with
multiple class codes that will begin renewing in 2006. Renewals
are at a rate of approximately 10 percent. This would suggest a
very small increase in revenue to the general fund.
