Fiscal Note Summary

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

    SB 78 would have a nominal impact on the revenues and expenditures of state government as they directly relate to the regulatory responsibilities of the Offices of the Insurance Commissioner (NO fiscal impact).
    
    The proposal seeks to clarify that the program for managing worker's compensation coverage for state entities by the Insurance Commissioner is to include the West Virginia Wing of the Civil Air Patrol. SB 78 could have a fiscal impact on the West Virginia Wing of the Civil Air Patrol.
    
    All premiums required for insurance coverage under the State Entities Worker's Compensation program are paid by the covered entity.

    The West Virginia Wing of the Civil Air Patrol is currently enrolled in the State Entities Worker's Compensation program.
    
    Amendments to Chapter 33, ยง33-2-21a (1) appears to contain a technical defect with regard to the reference defining a discretionary participant as a spending unit that is required by tweleve, article two, chapter eleven-b of the Code to provide a detailed expendiutre schedule to the Secretary of Revenue in his or her capacity as Director of the Budget "or the West Virginia Wing of the Civil Air Patrol". The placement of the reference to the WVW Civil Air Patrol appears to be in error as agencies do not file expenditure schedules with the WVW Air patrol.
