Fiscal Note Summary

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

     The purpose of this bill is to create an amnesty program for drivers with suspended licenses based on nonpayment of certain court fees in order to allow them to obtain their legal driver’s licenses without payment of citations ten years old or older.
     There are 112,739 unpaid citation files ten years old or older.
     If all of these unpaid citation files would be cleared because of the amnesty program, the uncollected reinstatement fee would be at a rate of $15 for each, which is the reinstatement fee required by WV Code §17B-3-9 prior to August 5, 2005. The total revenue loss based on this assumption would be $1,691,085 although most of these reinstatement fees are uncollectible.
