The Honorable Kellie Warren, Chairperson Senate Committee on Judiciary Statehouse, Room 441B-E Topeka, Kansas 66612 Dear Senator Warren: SUBJECT: Fiscal Note for SB 9 by Senator Faust-Goudeau In accordance with KSA 75-3715a, the following fiscal note concerning SB 9 is respectfully submitted to your committee. SB 9 would require law enforcement officers hired after January 1, 2022 to attend one of at least two or more diversity meetings scheduled by the Kansas Commission on Peace Officers Standards and Training (CPOST). The bill provides the requirements for participation and selection of participants from minority communities. The Kansas CPOST indicates that enactment of SB 9 could require modification of the agency’s Central Registry in order to track attendance and completion of the meetings. The cost of this modification is estimated to be $1,500. The Commission also reports that enactment of the bill could result in additional expenditures for local law enforcement agencies for salaries and travel to send officers to the meetings. The Kansas Human Rights Commission reports that enactment of the bill would have no fiscal effect on the agency. Any fiscal effect associated with SB 9 is not reflected in The FY 2022 Governor’s Budget Report.
