Page 261, following line 33, insert:
"3. As a condition of receipt of state funds under this program, local community corrections and pretrial services agencies shall charge supervision fees, based upon the guidelines for Supervision and Intervention Fees as promulgated by the Department of Criminal Justice Services."

(This amendment requires all of the local community corrections and pretrial services agencies to charge supervision fees. Currently, 26 of the 37 agencies already charge such fees. This amendment requires the other 11 programs to adopt similar fee schedules. The fees are used solely for the expansion and development of the agency, or to supplant local operating costs of the agency. The local agencies may allow a waiver of the fee or reduction of the fee based on approved local agency standard operating procedures. This is one of a series of amendments to enable the criminal justice system to manage its workload effectively during a period of severe budget reductions.)
