          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Elections)                               
          It is estimated that approximately $150,000 for new hirees will      
          be needed by the Board to implement HB 1913. Several variables       
          present difficulties in developing a firm assessment of costs.       
          Items such as the number of candidates participating, the num-       
          ber of complaints filed, the number of investigations conducted      
          and the number of audits required will affect initial and long-      
          range costs.
