Fiscal Note Summary

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

    Implementation of the proposed legislation can only be predicted at this time as there is no current mechanism in place like that established by this legislation. Based on estimates of what the language of the legislation will require, at a very minimum the implementation of those requirements will cost $187,361 in FY2016 and $171,361 in future years. Notwithstanding, this cost may potentially be higher, initially and in future years, due to the fact that there is currently no existing model already in existence within our agency from which to draw an accurate comparison. The costs noted are based solely on a minimum estimate of resources to compile and report the data outlined in this proposed legislation:
    Personnel costs (One Administrative Services Assistant, three Office assistants) $171,361
    Computers, Software and software licensing: $6,000
    Office Furniture $12,000
    Cost for Office Space: Unknown

    The receipt and timing of forfeiture funds by our agency is unpredictable and the accounts they are deposited into are determined by the agency processing the case. Therefore, the scheduling of funds in one account to support the needed personnel would be difficult to guarantee perpetually.
