(This amendment provides $3.3 million the second year from the general fund for the fiscal impact of Senate Bill 108, which prohibits the use of isolated confinement in state correctional facilities and juvenile correctional centers, subject to certain exceptions. Under the provisions of the bill, if juveniles pose an imminent threat to themselves or others, they may be placed in isolated confinement for no more than 24 hours in a 60-day period and must receive medical and mental health evaluations every hour. This amendment would provide for 13 additional mental health staff to perform the required evaluations. The amendment would also provide for 15 additional residential specialists to comply with increased requirements for time spent in programmatic interventions and congregate activities. The bill has a delayed effective date of July 1, 2024.)
