10:41 AM -- Bill 3
Bill 3 requires a court that is determining the place where competency restoration services are to be provided to give priority to the place where the defendant is in custody at the time of the determination, when clinically appropriate. If a determination is made to provide competency restoration in a jail, DHS will provide competency education services.
Senator Cooke explained that he would not move forward with the bill.
