This bill could also decrease state grant funds, by an undetermined amount, to any political subdivision of the state following a final judicial determination that the political subdivision has violated the provisions of this bill and shall continue annually until the political subdivision becomes fully compliant.

In addition this bill could increase receipts to the State General Fund and municipal general funds from fines; increase receipts to the State General Fund, county general funds, municipal general funds, and other funds to which court costs are deposited; and could increase the obligations of the State General Fund, district attorneys, and local jails by an undetermined amount dependent upon the number of persons charged with and convicted of the offenses provided by this bill and the penalties imposed.
