Clarify Definition of State-Responsible Inmates (language only)

Item 67 #2h

Item 67 #2h

Compensation Board

Page 44, strike lines 41 through 45 and insert:
"convicted of more than one felony offense and sentenced to consecutive terms for those offenses shall also be deemed a state-responsible inmate if the sum of the effective consecutive felony sentences exceeds 12 months."

(This amendment clarifies that inmates receiving more than one sentence which are to be served consecutively are state-responsible inmates only if those sentences are felonies and the summation of the sentences exceeds 12 months. This eliminates misdemeanor sentences from being included.)
