Fiscal Note Summary


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


    As penalties for Kidnapping can include life sentences the WVDOC does not anticipate a significant fiscal impact from the passage of this bill. However, for each additional inmate sentenced if this bill becomes law, the state can expect a cost of $23,674 per year they are incarcerated (average cost per inmate in FY 2011). Offenders sentenced to the maximum term of 50 years under the final provision could result in costs up to (23,674 x 25 = $591,850) if they do not receive parole earlier and earn the full allotment of good time.
