Fiscal Note Summary

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

     The purpose of this bill is to authorize the Commissioner of the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles to issue no more than five (5) Class A registration plates to the division for vehicles to be used by investigators for commercial driver examination fraud investigation and driver’s license issuance fraud detection and fraud prevention. The bill authorizes the Commissioner to issue Class A registration plates to Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the West Virginia Insurance Fraud Unit. The bill deletes the outdated requirement that municipalities provide the Commissioner with lists of vehicles used by their law-enforcement departments. The bill also provides for penalties.
    
     There is no fiscal impact associated with this bill because this bill adds wording to Motor Vehicle Code that currently exists in the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the Insurance Fraud Unit sections.
    
     The new authorization for five (5) Class A plates for the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles’ Fraud Unit will provide minimal fiscal impact.
