3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    There is no additional cost to the State or the County Boards of Education related to this proposed legislation.
    
    This proposed legislation will result in some cost savings to the County Boards of Education. Because employees would no longer be able to use more leave than they had accrued, some employees will end up on leave without pay status. There is insufficient data to calculate the estimated savings that counties would achieve from the inability of employees to use unearned leave.
    
    In addition, there are likely instances where County Boards of Education are unable to recover the cost of unearned leave from employees who terminate employment. There is insufficient data to calculate the estimated cost savings for all County Boards of Education; however, Kanawha County Board of Education estimated that they would save approximately $68,000 annually for unrecovered unearned leave from employees who terminate employment.
