"O.1. Included within the appropriation for this Item is $151,064 in the first year and $151,064 in the second year from the general fund for two additional FTEs to process expungements in the Criminal Justice Information Services Division that result from SB 608.  The appropriation for this Item also includes funding for twelve civilian technicians to process expungements of criminal records.

2. The Department shall report annually by August 1 of each year to the Department of Planning and Budget and the Chairs of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance and Appropriations Committees on the aggregate number of expungements processed by charge type and the man-hours required to process said expungements. The report may identify, along with the costs of such, any systems upgrades or organizational changes that would improve the Department's processes."


(This amendment provides funding for two FTEs to process additional expungements that may result from SB 608. First year funding takes into account reallocation of $108,800 GF that was proposed in the introduced budget for record sealing legislation that was not introduced. The amendment also includes language requiring the Department to report on its expungement program.)
