Fiscal Note Summary


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


    The purpose of this bill is to provide complimentary photo identification cards for those individuals that will be at least 18 years of age at the next general, municipal, or special election, who intends to use this identification card as a form of identification for voting.
    
    According to Vital Statistics records, approximately 20,000 people each year turn 18 years of age. Each of these individuals would be eligible for a fee identification card to use for voting purposes.
    
    The fee for a 17 year old to receive an identification card is $10 and the card is good until the person reaches the age of 21. This would result in a potential loss of $200,000 per year.
