The takeaway points  are as follows

(1) the estimated number of licenses be reduced from twelve to three

(2) based on security and safety concerns the presence of DPS troopers is required on the premises of the three dispensing organizations seven days a week. The latter recommendation is estimated to cost approximately $1.2 million over the biennium. Additionally, a portion of the increase is based on the department’s more general recalculation of the costs associated with administering the program and new information gained from the vendor approval process regarding the costs of the registry software development and maintenance. The total estimated cost for administration of the program is approximately $4.4 million over the biennium.
