Fiscal Note Summary

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

    There will be no revenue to the state.
    This program has already begun to some extent. It will require expansion of what we are already doing. That will mean a refocus of our Social Worker program and require the addition of two more Social Workers. This will require an increase for salaries and benefits. They will need vehicles, fuel for them, computers and office equipment and supplies, and cell phones. We will also need funding to provide advertising of the program and brochures to distribute the information.

3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    It will require additional personal services, benefits and current expenses. There should be no difference between start-up and ongoing costs. Should there be pay raises in the future and the cost of benefits go up, yes, there will be increases in that area. The vehicle lease should remain constant until the vehicle is paid off and then it will revert to a lower lease cost. The cost of future fuel is impossible, at this point, to predict. The cost of the cell phone should remain constant.
    
    If this Bill should be approved and take effect immediately, it will still take some time to get the jobs posted and filled. Therefore, we do not anticipate any fiscal year 2013 expenses.
