Senate Bill 39 as introduced would impose a Class C Felony penalty on a person that engages in repairs or services for damaged residential or commercial structures after a declared state of emergency by the Governor without a proper license. This bill could increase receipts to the State General Fund from fines; increase receipts to the State General Fund, county general funds and other funds to which court costs are deposited; and could increase the obligations of the State General Fund, district attorneys, the Board of Pardons and Paroles, the Department of Corrections, and community corrections programs by an amount dependent upon the number of persons charged with and convicted of the offenses provided by the bill and the penalties imposed.
