Fiscal Note Summary

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

    - Relocation costs: The estimated increase of $500 per claim is
    based upon fifty claims per year, for a total of $25,000.
    
    - Travel to parole hearings: The estimate is for twenty claims per
    year at the statutory maximum of $1,000, for a total of $20,000.
    
    - Claims filed for loss of student loans: This is extremely
    speculative. For five claims filed per year, at an estimate of
    $4,000 per year would equal $20,000.

3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
    This measure will have very little impact on costs of state
    government because the Crime Victims Compensation Fund, a special
    revenue fund, is solvent. The Court of Claims receives a federal
    grant of approximately 60% of the prior year total awards.
    
    This measure will have absolutely no impact on revenues of state
    government.
