According to the Fiscal Impact Estimates, the legislation to reestablish the Task Force on Maternal Health Data and Quality Measures is not expected to have additional fiscal impact on the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) as funding for the task force is already provided and remains in the agency's base. The VDH should be able to continue the task force with existing resources and staff.
