Fiscal Note Summary

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

    With the passage of this bill, using fiscal year 2009-10 numbers, if the 531 inmates that took advantage of House Bill 2419 would have paid $50.00 per class and took all six classes, this would have generated $159,300.00 for the agency. Also, by doing this, inmates would have gotten 30 days off their sentence, for a total of 15,930 billable days that would, in turn, save the counties a projected total of $777,384.
