Federal Inmate Per Diem Recovery (language only)

Item 64 #1h

Item 64 #1h

Compensation Board

Page 45, after line 29, insert:
"6.  The provisions of subsections 1 through 5 of this paragraph notwithstanding, in the case of those local or regional jails where the cumulative federal share of capital costs exceed the Commonwealth's cumulative capital costs, no overhead recovery shall be made for federal or out-of-state inmates occupying such beds.   The Department of Corrections shall determine on a case-by-case basis where such beds are in excess of the operational capacity established by the Department for the Commonwealth's state and local inmates, and such capacity for federal or out-of-state prisoners is supported by funds of other states or the federal government."

(This amendment corrects language in the introduced budget related to the recovery of per diem payments for inmates confined in local or regional jails, where bedspace has been constructed in whole or in part with nonstate funds.)
