Exemptions to Federal Cost Recovery Methodology (language only)

Item 70 #2h

Item 70 #2h

Compensation Board

Page 56, line 4, strike "The" and insert:
"Through June 30, 2009, the".
Page 56, line 7, after "contribution.", insert:
"After June 30, 2009, all local and regional jails shall be subject to the cost recovery methodology outlined in paragraphs H.1 and H.2 of this item."

(This amendment removes the exemption from the federal inmate cost recovery methodology that had existed for one local jail and three regional jails based on federal bed construction. The funding required for the continuance of this exemption was eliminated for fiscal year 2010 in Chapter 879 of the 2008 Acts of Assembly. Without this language, all other local and regional jails per diem payments would require some level of proration.)
