Preliminary Fiscal Impact Statement
Potential current biennium cost increase - All Funds
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Eliminating the State's ability to recoup payments to an employee made in error by deducting or withholding amounts from subsequent wages may mean recovery in some cases is never accomplished, increasing costs to state departments and agencies. It is not possible to estimate the additional costs by fund, agency or fiscal year going forward.
