10:07 AM -- HB 17-1020



Senator Martinez Humenik, prime sponsor, presented the bill. Recommended by the Legislative Oversight Committee Concerning the Treatment of Persons with Mental Illness in the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Systems (MICJS), this bill modifies current law concerning funding and staff support for the MICJS task force. Specifically, the bill:

        • allows the Office of Behavioral Health in the Department of Human Services and any other state agency with an active representative on the task force to receive and expend gifts, grants, and donations in support of the task force;
        • permits the Office of Behavioral Health in the Department of Human Services to provide staff assistance to the task force within existing appropriations;
        • clarifies that the existing Treatment of Persons with Mental Illness in the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Systems Cash Fund may receive moneys appropriated or transferred by the General Assembly; and
        • removes language that prohibits the transfer of unexpended moneys in the fund to the General Fund or another fund.

Senator Martinez Humenik distributed amendment L.001 (Attachment B).
