Balanced Budget Note (Office of Management and Budget)
The fiscal impact of this bill is estimated to be minimal but depends on judicial utilization of the factor described in House Bill 3735 in increasing penalties. The fiscal impact is also dependent on the number of offenders convicted of crimes whose sentences would be eligible to be increased under House Bill 3735. Due to the uncertainty in judicial utilization of the newly proposed factor in House Bill 3735 and low number of offenders anticipated to be affected by House Bill 3735, the fiscal impact of House Bill 3735 is minimal.

Therefore, the full impact of this legislation is unknown.
