Fiscal Note
Minor revenue decrease - General Fund
Correctional and Judicial Impact Statements
Lowers penalties from $250 to $75 for first offenses and from $500 to $150 for subsequent offenses.
The incremental impact of reducing penalties will be a reduction of the minor General Fund revenue increase that had been expected from the bill as amended by committee A. Overall as amended here, a small net revenue increase is still expected.
