OFA Fiscal Note

SEE BELOW

The amendment results in a potential revenue gain by creating a new offense. It is anticipated that relatively few fines would be imposed on an annual basis, and, consequently, any revenue gain under the bill is expected to be minimal.

To the extent that offenders are prosecuted criminally and subsequently convicted or plead guilty, the state could incur a cost associated with incarceration and/or probation supervision in the community. On average, it costs the state $3, 736 to supervise an offender on probation in the community as compared to $44, 165 to incarcerate the offender.
