SB 338-FN - FISCAL NOTE

AN ACT relative to military discipline by the national guard.

FISCAL IMPACT:

      The Adjutant General’s Department states this bill will increase state general fund expenditures by an indeterminable amount in FY 2012 and each year thereafter. There is no fiscal impact on county and local expenditures, or state, county and local revenue.

METHODOLOGY:

    The Adjutant General’s Department states this bill establishes residency requirements for positions in the Department, establishes a military advisory commission, and establishes the office of state judge advocate and the position of state judge advocate. The Department states this bill will increase state general fund expenditures but is not able to determine by how much. The Department does not have information to determine at what salary level the state judge advocate position would be paid nor does it know how many, if any, assistant judge advocates would be appointed and at what salary level. Not knowing the size of the office, the Department is not able to determine the increased costs.
