METHODOLOGY:

This bill requires that a certain amount of excess money from the investor education fund be deposited in the FRM Victims' Recovery Fund instead of the State General Fund.  The Bureau of Securities Regulation indicates this bill would require up to $500,000 of the amount in excess of $725,000 from the Investor Education Fund to be deposited in the FRM Victims' Recovery Fund.  Under current law, amounts in excess of $725,000 are deposited in the State General Fund.  The Bureau indicates the excess has exceeded $500,000 for the last three years but notes there is no guarantee this would be the case in any given fiscal year.  The fiscal impact of this bill will be a decrease of up to $500,000 in State General Fund revenue and an increase of up to $500,000 in FRM Victims' Recovery Fund revenue.
