Fiscal Note Summary

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

    The purpose of this bill is to required counties with a population 25,000 or greater have a Division of Motor Vehicles office location within in the county unless there is a Division of Motor Vehicles office location within 25 miles from the county seat; require counties with a population of less than 25,000 install a Division of Motor Vehicles Now kiosk unless the county seat is within 25 miles of a Division of Motor Vehicles office location; establishing the maximum amount of Division of Motor Vehicles office locations in this state; prescribing the maximum amount of Division of Motor Vehicles Now kiosks to be determined at a later date; and requiring the provisions of this code be implemented by July 1, 2021.
    The Division estimates that the bill will require the closure of 3 offices. The offices affected and the related annual cost savings are Moorefield ($105,275), Franklin ($64,359), and Welch ($82,716) for a total annual savings of $252,350.
    The Division anticipates the addition of 19 DMV Now kiosks at an average annual net expense $37,944 per kiosk for a total annual expense of $720,936 (19 x 37,944). These kiosks would be in the communities of Moorefield, Glenville, Franklin, Petersburg, Grantsville, Middlebourne, Marlinton, Wester Springs, Welch, Harrisville, West Union, Pineville, Madison, Clay, Hamlin, Hinton, Weston, Saint Marys, and New Martinsville.
    The Division cannot estimate the financial impact of this bill as changing demographics would force the relocation of offices to stay in compliance with the stated requirements.
