Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill expands the application of the 3 cents per barrel fee on refined oil that is transported by rail or highway to now include crude oil.  According to the Department of Environmental Protection, all rail and highway transporters of oil curently pay the 3 cents per barrel fee and therefore no additional revenue is anticipated to be realized from this change in fee assessment.
