EXPLANATION OF IMPACT:
Since housing authorities are supported by local funds and/or self-supporting, there will be no additional cost to the General Fund of the State.
LOCAL GOVERNMENT IMPACT:
It is estimated the housing authorities have approximately 980 active employees. Based on the weighted average cost of $3,505 per subscriber in the State Health Plan, there would be an annual cost of $3,434,900 to the authorities to include these employees in the State Health Plan.
At this time without a survey of all the housing authorities, there is no information available on the number of retirees.
