3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    The bill would result in an increase of one FTE within the Division of Personnel. If this would be a classified position it would be equivalent to a Personnel Specialist Senior, which is a pay grade of 14. The pay range for this position is $29,000 - $54,396. Based upon the salaries of other employees with similar job responsibilities within the Division of Personnel, the estimated salary would be $50,000 plus benefits.
    
    33% is our estimate of benefits/expenses including Social Security, Medicare match, employer contribution to pension, employer costs for health insurance, and other current expenses on an annual basis. 28% would cover the benefits and 5% would cover supplies and equipment.
    
    Because the position would be within the Division of Personnel, they could provide clerical and administrative support to the position, absorbing those costs from the Division's current budget.

    The bill is not clear as to how the position would be funded. Would the funding come from General Revenue or would the costs require the funding to come from the Division's current special revenue funding.
