Fiscal Note Summary


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


    There are currently 178 inmates that would become parole eligible if this bill is made into law. The WV Division of Corrections & Rehabilitation cannot predict what percentage of these inmates would be granted parole by the WV Parole Board without a deeper analysis of the factors in each case. However, for each year of incarceration that is avoided as a result of an inmate being granted parole under this legislation the State of West Virginia would save $25,879 (average annual cost per offender in FY2018).
