Decreases Existing Revenue, Creates New Expense



Fiscal Note Summary


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


    The purpose of this bill is to remove all fees for the initial issuance or renewal of a Silver Star registration plate.
    
    This bill eliminates a one-time fee of $10 and an annual fee of $50. There are 41 Silver Star plates currently in existence. The Division estimates that this number will remain consistent with one new plate sold each year and one plate not renewing each year. Therefore, the Division estimates that revenue will decrease by $2,060 (($10 x 1 new plate) + ($50 x 41 registrations)).
    
    Expenses to implement the legislation will consist of cash register programing of $1,150 (10 hours x $115 per hour), and mainframe programming of $720 (8 hours x $90 per hour), for a total current expense of $1,870 ($1,150 + $720).
