          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Transportation)                           
          HB 575 will necessitate the removal of approximately 500 dual        
          speed limit signs at a cost of $40,000, which would result in        
          an estimated annual savings in maintenance costs of $5,000.          
          The Department projects that HB 575 will result in more severe       
          crashes, which ultimately will result in higher medical costs        
          to the State. The cost is indeterminate at this time.
