Fiscal Note Summary


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


    This proposed legislation has a projected cost of $1,429,527. It will allow the WV State Police to increase the number of compensable hours a sworn member may receive in overtime compensation. The current rate of $236 per month has not been adjusted since 1990 and therefore has not kept pace with across-the-board increases, which diminishes the amount of compensable overtime hours that can be worked.
