Explanation of Fiscal Impact
This bill includes licensed paramedics with at least three years of experience as one of the additional qualifications a coroner must meet. RFA surveyed all forty-six counties and the MASC and received responses from four counties and the MASC. Aiken, Dorchester, and Chesterfield Counties and the MASC indicate that the bill will have no expenditure impact. Charleston County indicates that the bill could increase expenses but could not quantify the cost. However, we have contacted Charleston County for clarification and will update this impact statement if additional information is provided.
