Fiscal Note Summary


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


    
    The purpose of Senate Bill 56 is to establish a fee for the expungement of certain criminal convictions upon proper petition and to allocate that fee.
    
    
    A $200 fee is established and then allocated to 4 funds/accounts already in existence. There will be no separate or additional cost to the Treasurer’s Office in processing these fees. The Treasurer’s Office already collects various moneys from the circuit clerks and deposits them into various state funds/accounts. Effective July 1, 2019, a new online court fee system will go live and adding the additional fee will require minimal programming at minimal cost.
    
    The Treasurer’s Office has no basis for determining the amount of revenue that will be generated for the various funds/accounts.
    
    
    NOTE: The amounts allocated ($90 + $40 + $20 + $20) equal $170, not the fee collected of $200. The bill needs to be amended to reflect allocation of the full $200.
