The bill creates a Class C crime for making a false public alarm or report that causes the evacuation, shutdown or lockdown of certain establishments. The current average cost of incarcerating one individual for a single year is $55,203.

The additional workload associated with the minimal number of new felony cases filed in the court system does not require additional funding at this time.
The collection of additional fine revenue will increase General Fund and dedicated revenue by minor amounts.
