Fiscal Note Summary

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

    It is unclear what fiscal impact this bill could have the costs and revenues of state government because it only affects 1 current enforcement agent and 9 Inspectors. The bill would not provide civil service coverage to the Enforcement Director.
    
    The bill takes exempt or will and pleasure employees and automatically grants them civil service status but does not specify what level or pay grade they would qualify for under the WV Division of Personnel classification system. Some employees could get pay raise and other could get pay reductions.
    
    The bill does not provide for any testing or evaluation of these employees by the WV Division of Personnel.

    It is unclear what fiscal impact this bill could have the costs and revenues of state government because it only affects 1 current enforcement agent and 9 Inspectors. The bill would not provide civil service coverage to the Enforcement Director.
    
    The bill could allow exempt or will and pleasure employees to automatically become civil service without having met the civil service testing and qualification requirements as designed by the WV Division of Personnel classification system.
    
    This bill could create a precedent that the Legislature could approve legislation that circumvents the established WV Division of Personnel classification system of testing, evaluation and qualification processes to select qualified candidates for various posted positions throughout the state.
