Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    This bill will not have any fiscal impact on the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. The purposed legislation was requested by the Administrative Office of the Supreme Court and only changes the way payment for the mental hygiene services is processed.
    Currently, mental hygiene commissioners send their invoices directly to the circuit judges. The judges then approve the invoices and then forward them tot he courts' Administrative Office for payment.
    The purpose legislation authorizes the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals to determine a reasonable rate of compensation for these cases. Further, it requires that the mental hygiene commissioners submit their invoices directly to the Administrative Office. This gives the Court more of an opportunity to audit the invoices and limit the possibility of a misappropriation of state funds.
