| FUND(S) |
License fee $25 from alcohol servers & sellers
Sources of Revenue
|Other Fund No fund established|
Legislation creates:A New Program
Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.
| The $25 fee may be inadequate to cover the expenses of such a program and reduce revenues transferred by the WVABCA to the General Fund in order to cover the cost of such a program.
The bill fails to state/create a special fund where the fee should be deposited and expended to pay for the program.
Estimates are made on persons who serve and sell alcohol at about 5000 on-premise licensed establishments. If the average is 5 bartenders/wait staff. This bill could affect 25,000 people or more. The program if properly implemented could cost a $100/person. See estimates below.
|Effect of Proposal||Fiscal Year|
|1. Estmated Total Cost||0||-2,500,000||-2,500,000|
|Repairs and Alterations||0||0||0|
|2. Estimated Total Revenues||0||625,000||625,000|
3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
Personal services - hiring trainers
Current Expenses - Training program & curriculum
hearings, background checks, licensing
Assets - vehicles to travel the state
Other - travel & training expenses
The program would cost more than it would generate.
| HB 4466 has several problems with terminology, construction and many other requirements. The bill does not accomplish what it is trying to implement in alcohol server permitting.
The bill fails to state/create a special fund where the fees should be deposited and expended to pay for the program.
