1 The fringe benefit costs for most state employees are budgeted centrally in accounts administered by the Comptroller. The estimated non-pension fringe benefit cost associated with personnel changes is 23.76% of payroll in FY 12 and FY 13. In addition, there could be an impact to potential liability for the applicable state pension funds.

2 The processing of DNA samples has been partially funded by $1.4 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Justice Assistance Grant moneys over the past two years. This ARRA grant is set to expire in June 2011.

3 2009 data indicates that the State Police made approximately 6% of statewide arrests for murder, negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, burglary and aggravated assault.

4 Local costs would be reduced should the DPS provide testing kits to law enforcement on a statewide basis. However, DPS costs would rise accordingly.
