Fund Transitioning From Criminal and Juvenile Justice System

Concerning the repeal date for the transfer of money from community corrections to the housing assistance for persons transitioning from the criminal or juvenile justice system cash fund, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
2018 Regular Session
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Bill Summary

Legislative Oversight Committee Concerning the Treatment of Persons with Mental Health Disorders in the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Systems. In 2017, the general assembly enacted a provision requiring at the end of the 2016-17 fiscal year the state treasurer to transfer unexpended and unencumbered money appropriated for community corrections programs to a new fund to assist persons transitioning from the criminal or juvenile justice systems. The act repealed the provision in 2018.

The bill eliminates the repeal of the provision so that the transfer occurs at the end of each state fiscal year.

The bill appropriates $60,788 to the department of local affairs for affordable housing costs.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
