"Cost-free"? In what universe?

I'm not sure even L. Frank Baum would have gone as far in creating a fantasy world as state Rep. Pat Ownbey has in his press release about his bill, HB2835, which states that Ownbey's bill requiring mobile home park owners to provide storm shelters would have "no cost".

Think again, Rep. Ownbey: will there really be no cost involved in setting up an expanded state bureaucracy to enforce this law? Will no tax dollars whatsoever be spent on monitoring mobile home parks to ensure that they have shelters? And in what universe will mobile home park owners be able to build storm shelters without spending any money? And who will define and enforce the standards for those shelters? Who will pay their bills?
