Explanation

The bill would allow state agencies to dispose of weapons seized from certain individuals 60 days after the expiration of the term imposed by the courts. This is anticipated to result in a minimal savings to the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) as the agency would no longer incur certain storage costs.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation.
