          STATE MANDATES ACT FISCAL NOTE                                       
          HB 182 fails to meet the definition of a State mandate.              
          FISCAL NOTE (Dpt. of Corrections)                                    
          Impact: corrections population, 9 inmates; fiscal, $1,747,500.       
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE                                                    
          No change from DOC fiscal note.

          The bill would not increase the need for the number of judges.
