Fiscal Note Summary

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

    The West Virginia Division of Corrections is unable to estimate how many new offenders would be sentenced to our custody as a result of the proposed legislation. However, for each such offender incarcerated, the State of West Virginia can expect an additional cost of $28,369 per year (average annual cost per offender in FY 2015).
