|HB 2396 establishes within the Office of Judges a new "compromise settlement division". The additional cost of the proposal is estimated at $200,000 annually and $20,000 the initial year of implementation (FY 11). The annual expenditures have been allocated to the addition of 3 ftes to staff the division and a nominal amount of current expenses. The $20,000 for the initial year is to cover supplying the division with equipment (pc's, work stations) and supplies.|

3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
The FY 2011 increases in current expenses and assets are to cover the additional costs of workstations, computers, phones, supplies and the development of forms. Depending on the effective date, the expenses may be incurred in FY 2012.
It is estimated that a new settlement division will require a staff of no more than 3 ftes.
Administrative Law Judge II - PS $75,000 + EB $26,000 = $101,000
Claims Deputy - PS $40,000 + EB $13,000 = $53,000
Staff Support - PS $25,000 + EB $8,000 = $33,000
Annual expenditures for Personal Services and Benefits total approximately $190,000.
Annual current expenses = $10,000.
