Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):

     In addition to the dollar amounts stated above that will be
    immediately withdrawn from the Trust Fund, we will also have additional administrative expenses due to changes in programming and procedures to implement this change in the processing of a reimbursable overpayment. The estimated costs involved in the implementation of this law are as follows:
    Programming Costs:
    Programmer Hourly rate (Estimate of 100 hrs.) $3,049
    (Based on Salary Cost of $63,411)
    Non Personal Service Cost @ 39.4% $1,201
    Procedural Cost:
    Staff Position Cost (estimate of 200 hrs.) $6,098
     (Based on Salary Cost of $63,411)
    Non Personal Service Cost @39.4% $2,403
    Total Administrative Cost to Implement HB 2763: $12,751


    Even though this bill would increase the cost to the Trust Fund at a time when the solvency of the fund is in question, WorkForce’s main concern is the legality of using the Trust Fund to reimburse employers that choose not to be a contributory employer. An additional concern is whether this action will interfere with the manner in which the Military handles claims/payments since they are reimbursable employers as well. In view of these issues, we have forwarded this bill to the Department of Labor for a legal opinion.
