The difference between 10-year cost projections and fiscal notes

  • A 10-year cost projection provides the cost estimate of a bill over a 10-year period. Cost estimates for each year are reported separately and include only tax or fee increases.
  • A fiscal note provides the cost estimate of a bill over six years, grouped in two-year periods. A fiscal note includes other information about the bill not included in the 10-year cost projection.
