(This amendment increases the jail per diem for state-responsible offenders from $12 to $14 per diem. The amount was reduced from $14 to $12 in 2010 as a budget reduction strategy. State-responsible offenders are those with sentences of one year or more. The state-responsible per diem is paid beginning on the 91st day after the sentencing order is received from the court.)
