          CORRECTONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                         
          Since the Department does not know how many of the offenses          
          outlined in this legislation will take place and how this en-        
          hancement will be used by state prosecutors, the precise number      
          of prison sentences which would result from this legislation is      
          unknown. Thus, an accurate estimate of the impact on the prison      
          population cannot be determined.
