House Bill 2 as amended and reported by the Committee on Judiciary could increase the administrative obligations of the Office of Attorney General to bring a declatory judgement against a political subdivision of the state that has reduced funding of the law enforcement agency of the political subdivision by more than 50%, with certain exceptions.

Further, 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, local jails, the district attorneys, the Department of Corrections, the Bureau of Pardons and Paroles, and community corrections programs 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.
