Positions and Employment
3: Miscellaneous & Part 4: General Provisions)

Page 412, line 38, after "fund.", insert:
"The provisions of this paragraph shall not apply to on-duty employees assigned to correctional facilities operated by the Department of Corrections and the Department of Juvenile Justice."

(This amendment waives the requirement that Department of Corrections and Department of Juvenile Justice employees be charged a fee for meals served at the correctional facility while on-duty. The waiver of this requirement will reduce the potential for the introduction of contraband into the facility through packages and will assure that staff do not leave the facility while on lunch break, thereby increasing security and improving employee morale. Any costs will be absorbed by the respective agencies.)
