SB-471

AN ACT CONCERNING A MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT REPORT FOR AN ACCIDENT IN WHICH A PERSON WAS KILLED.


OFA Fiscal Note

State Impact: None

Municipal Impact: None

Explanation

There is expected to be no fiscal impact from the bill, which requires that in cases where an investigation into a fatal vehicle accident is not conclusive, the police department investigating must refer it to the state's attorney's office, which may refer it to the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) for further investigation. To the extent that the state's attorney's office refers cases to DESPP, any further investigation into such incidents is expected to be within the agency's capacity. The number of cases that are expected to be sent to DESPP for further review is expected to be minimal.

The Out Years
