Fiscal Note Summary

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

    This bill raises only salaries and benefits for WVABCA Enforcement Inspectors, Agents and Supervisors. The bill also creates at the West Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Administration a career development process, a training manual, evaluation and testing procedures, a WVABCA Enforcement “only” specific pay scale and a special annual “length of service award” salary enhancement (which is in addition to the state increment for all state employees).
    
    The bill does not state what the career development process is, what should be in a training manual or what are the evaluation and testing procedures.
    
    This bill will increase the WVABCA's budget for salaries and salary enhancements ($400 per year of service) paid to Enforcement Inspectors, Agents and Supervisors as noted in the flat pay scale included in the bill.
    
    The bill does not note the corresponding increase in benefits paid to the Enforcement Inspectors, Agents and Supervisors receiving the pay raise.
    
    The WVABCA is a special revenue agency, therefore general revenue transfers would likely be reduced to account for salaries and benefits proposed to be paid to Enforcement Inspectors, Agents and Supervisors.
    
    The bill's annual length of service award is an annual salary enhancement based on $400 for each year of service upon completion of 2 years of service. This $400 amount would increase annually in perpetuity as each Inspector, Agent and Supervisor’s years of service increases until retirement. Again this would significantly impact general revenue transfers.
