Explanation

The amendment provides that 30% of all revenue collected for this offense be remitted to the municipalities in which the violation occurred, which will result in a potential revenue gain of $185, 625 to various municipalities and reduce the potential revenue gain by $185, 625 to the General Fund that was identified in the underlying bill as amended.

There is no fiscal impact to the Judicial Department associated with the remittance of revenue to municipalities, as the Centralized Infraction Bureau of the department already performs this function for other offenses specified in statute.
