Fiscal Note Summary

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

    SB 1 Fiscal Note
    
    December 7 as a designated West Virginia Holiday
    
    Most of the cost for public employees is already included in the agencies base budget. This will only allow them to be paid for a day of no service. The impact is more on workload, with the exception of those agencies that provide 24/7 coverage such as: West Virginia State Police, Division of Corrections, Regional Jails, Division of Juvenile Services, Natural Resource Police Officers, State Parks, DHHR hospitals, Homeland Security, etc. These agencies will have additional cost to cover the difference between 40 straight hours for the week versus 32 straight and 8 overtime hours, however the State Budget Office does not have the information to figure the cost to those agencies.
    
    Also the cost to the state for county professional educators and service personnel covered under the School Aid Formula will impact the number of classroom days. Adding an additional day to the employment term will require an additional $7,895,851 (based on 2010-2011 figures) of state funding. This will also have an impact of an estimated $1,127,359 to local boards of education for employees outside the school aid formula.
