Will it cost North Carolina too much money?

There has been some speculation about cost, but it is not grounded in any factual evidence. Based on comparisons to other states that have history implementing similar Marsy's Law legislation, like Illinois and California, there has been no indication of significant increased costs - and neither state has needed to allocate specific funding for implementation. Updated North Carolina fiscal notes were part of the legislative debate and suggest that there may be some small cost to the state to upgrade notification. 

Many prosecutor's offices in North Carolina already have ways and technology in place to provide victims with notice and information.  While Marsy’s Law may add a few responsibilities to DA’s and others in the court system, other than notice, there is little or no cost involved in the rights being proposed.  Many elected officials and citizens agree that we should already be doing this for North Carolina's crime victims and their families.
