Fiscal Note Summary

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

    The purpose of this bill is to augment the funding of instructional personnel and to assure improved health services for students by partially funding nurse positions for certain counties as an intermediate step toward improving instructional personnel staffing. Each of the following counties shall receive funding at the state average contracted salary for nurses plus incremental costs as follows:
    
    (1). To employ one additional nurse: Cabell, Calhoun, Clay, Fayette, Greenbrier, Hardy, Lincoln, Mason, Mingo, Morgan, McDowell, Pocahontas, Putnam, Roane, Tyler and Wetzel.
    
    (2). To employ two additional nurses: Harrison, Marion, Mercer, Raleigh, Wayne, and Wyoming; and
    
    (3). To fund one existing nurse position to avoid the loss of this or another instructional position due to a budget deficit: Preston and Taylor.
    
    The total estimated cost of this proposal for the 2005-06 year, and thereafter, for the diabetes care plan act is $1,698,125 which would be an additional cost to the State through the Public School Support Program. See the attached schedule for an explanation of the calculations.
