Bill Summary

Under current law, when a defendant is detained in jail on a municipal hold, the defendant must receive a hearing before the municipal court within 2 calendar days, excluding Sundays and federal holidays. Beginning January 1, 2023, the act requires the hearing to be held within 48 hours after the municipal court receives notice that the defendant is being held solely on a municipal hold.

The act makes clarifying changes to the district attorney assistance for bond hearings grant program and repeals the district attorney assistance for bond hearings cash fund.

The act decreases the 2022 long bill appropriation to the district attorney assistance for bond hearing cash fund by $600,000 and appropriates in the 2022 long bill $600,000 to the department of law for district attorney bond hearing grants. The act repeals the 2021 $150,000 appropriation to the district attorney assistance for bond hearing cash fund and appropriates for the 2021-22 fiscal year $150,000 to the department of law for district attorney bond hearing grants.
