Bill Summary

Under current law, when the general assembly passes a bill that causes a net increase in the period of imprisonment, the general assembly is required to appropriate money to cover the costs of that imprisonment for the next 5 years. The act suspends that requirement until July 1, 2025, and repeals all of the current statutory 5-year appropriations.
