Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill expands the availability of deferred disposition to include Class B drug offenses. To the extent that individuals consent to deferred disposition and sentences are subsequently reduced, correctional costs will decrease. The amount of savings cannot be determined at this time. The current average cost of incarcerating an individual for one day in a correctional facility is $151.24, totaling $55,203 per year.
