State appropriations for operating costs of local correctional facilities. Provides that the appropriation for operating costs for local correctional facilities, for each fiscal year, contained in the Governor's proposed biennial budget bill shall include an amount for compensating localities for the cost of maintaining prisoners arrested on state warrants in local jails, regional jails, and jail farms and for maintaining convicted state felons in local correctional facilities for a period of incarceration that may not exceed one year unless a longer period of incarceration has been agreed upon in writing by the governing body of the locality or the regional jail authority. Current law requires that the Governor's biennial budget bill contain such amounts but does not impose the limitation of the length of the period of incarceration. Read the Bill »
