No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 205 would require the attorney general to quarterly review information on a statewide list which would say if a voter has been disqualified from jury service because they are deceased or a non-citizen. The attorney general would investigate to determine if the person has committed the offense of a false statement on an application.
SB 205 would also strike language which made it an offense to use the list of disqualified voters for any purpose other than determining if a false statement was made on the voting application. It also strikes language which makes it a Class C misdemeanor to use this information for any other purpose.
