House Bill 27 as passed the House of Representatives would create a Class C Felony penalty for the crime of aggravated home repair fraud. 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.
