Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):

This is a process currently in place and would require no additional costs. Based on an analysis of prior months filing fees from counties, we provided the above estimates using an estimated increase of 57% over current levels. This is a necessary service and the increase from $1 to $2 is not expected to affect volume, thus, this increase in revenue is projected to continue indefinitely.


Nothing further.
