Compensation of local jails for costs of incarceration. Provides that a jail be compensated for the housing of a convicted felon based on the actual costs of incarceration and that a felon not be moved to a jail until an agreement to pay actual costs has been reached between the Department of Corrections and the locality or regional authority. Current law requires that jails be compensated as provided for in the general appropriation act. Read the Bill »
