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 associated with increasing the class of crime for the prohibited possession of a firearm by certain persons will increase General Fund and dedicated revenue by minor amounts.
