Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):



    Currently, local health departments (LHDs) issue operational permits to all temporary food vendors at all temporary events in their jurisdictions as required by Legislative Rule 64 CSR 30, Section 3.22 that reads, Temporary Food Service Establishment – A Food service establishment that operates at a fixed location for a period of time of not more than fourteen consecutive days in conjunction with a single event or celebration is required by law, WV Code 16-6-3, to have a temporary permit. The current annual revenue for LHDs related to temporary food establishment operational permit fees is approximately $407,167. This legislation would reduce LHD revenue generated from temporary food vendor operational permit fees by an estimated $203,583 to $305,375 (50 to 75 percent).
