          HB 392 would have minimal fiscal impact on the operations of         
          the State Board of Elections. Any implementation costs could         
          be absorbed within the regular operating budget.

          decrease the number of judges needed in the State.                   
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)
