(This amendment eliminates the Woodrum impact to prevent the financial exploitation of the elderly, because the bill did not pass. In that bill's place, language is inserted for the Woodrum impact of House Bill 973, which imposes life sentences on adults who commit certain sex crimes against children 13 years old or younger, because that bill did pass, and the Woodrum impacts for the two bills was identical.)
