Department of Criminal Justice Services


Page 405, before line 1, insert:

"4. The Department may expend up to $125,000 per year out of the amounts allocated in Paragraph J.1. of this Item on costs related to the administration of the jail mental heath pilot program."


(This amendment clarifies the Department's authority to use a portion of funding designated for pass-through grants to local and regional jails for mental health pilot programs, on administrative costs. The agency has no existing authority to use the funding on administrative costs.)
