Existing law authorizes the issuance of bonds for purposes of financing these projects, as specified.
This bill would require the department to conduct site assessments in connection with determining where to construct or renovate housing units pursuant to the projects described above, and to report those assessments to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee as specified. The bill would provide that specified reporting requirements apply separately to each institution or facility. The bill would require additional reports by the department to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee concerning the budgets, schedules, allocations from funds for the projects, and other items, in connection with the projects described above.
Existing law requires the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to prepare and update a master plan concerning construction and renovation of facilities under the department’s jurisdiction for which funds have been appropriated by the Legislature. Existing law generally defines items to be included in the master plan.
This bill would specify additional items to be included in the master plan relative to the construction and renovation projects described above.
Existing law provides state financing for construction siting of county jails, subject to matching funds from counties, as specified. Existing law requires the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the Corrections Standards Authority to give funding preference for those purposes to counties that assist the state in siting reentry facilities, as specified.
This bill would require the Corrections Standards Authority, to the extent possible, to ensure that funds for the construction of new jail beds be coordinated with the Department of Correction and Rehabilitation’s efforts to site new reentry facilities.
Existing law establishes the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, and charges it with various duties.
This bill would require the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, by January 10 of each year, to provide to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee operational and fiscal information to be displayed in the Governor’s proposed budget, and other operational and fiscal data, as specified. The bill would declare the intent of the Legislature in that regard.

Existing law authorizes local jurisdictions to present claims for reimbursement to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation for detention costs associated with persons under the jurisdiction of the state, as specified.
This bill would require the local jurisdiction to submit any of those claims to the department within 6 months after the close of the month in which the costs are incurred. If the claims are not submitted within that time, the bill would prohibit the reimbursement of the claims.
Existing law appropriates $300,000,000 for capital outlay to be allocated to renovate, improve, or expand infrastructure capacity at existing prison facilities. Existing law also authorizes the funds to be used for land acquisition, environmental services, architectural programming, engineering assessments, schematic design, preliminary plans, working drawings, and construction.
This bill would require the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to report to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee on the funds appropriated pursuant to existing law. This bill would also subject the projects for which funds are appropriated pursuant to existing law to approval and administrative oversight by the State Public Works Board, as specified.
Existing law provides, in any case in which a minor who is detained in or committed to a county institution established for the purpose of housing juveniles attains 18 years of age prior to or during the period of detention or confinement, that he or she may be allowed to come or remain in contact with those juveniles until 19 years of age, at which time he or she, upon the recommendation of the probation officer, shall be delivered to the custody of the sheriff for the remainder of the time he or she remains in custody, unless the juvenile court orders continued detention in a juvenile facility.
This bill would provide, if continued detention is ordered for a ward who is 19 years of age or older but under 21 years of age, that he or she may be allowed to come into or remain in contact with any other person detained in the institution. The bill would require the county to apply to the Corrections Standards Authority for approval of a county institution established for the purpose of housing juveniles as a suitable place for confinement before the institution is used for the detention or commitment of an individual under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court who is 19 years of age or older but under 21 years of age where the detained person will come into or remain in contact with persons under 18 years of age who are detained in the institution.
Existing law authorizes the juvenile court to make specified orders, including an order to commit a ward to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Facilities, if a minor is adjudged a ward of the court for violating any law or ordinance defining a crime, except as specified.

This bill would, commencing September 1, 2007, restrict the authority of the juvenile court to order the commitment of a ward to the division to those wards who have committed specified offenses. By changing the counties’ responsibilities with respect to juvenile offenses, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The bill would authorize the court committing a ward to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Facilities, to recall that commitment in the case of any ward whose commitment offense was not any of the specified offenses referenced above, unless the offense was a specified sex offense, and who remains confined in an institution operated by the division as of September 1, 2007.

Under existing law, if a person has been committed to the Division of Juvenile Facilities, the Board of Parole Hearings is authorized, among other things, to permit the ward his or her liberty under supervision and upon conditions, as specified, order confinement of the ward, order reconfinement or renewed release under supervision, or revoke or modify any parole or disciplinary appeal order.
This bill would, commencing September 1, 2007, make these powers of the board subject to the provisions described above and below, and would provide that the county of commitment shall supervise the parole of any ward released on parole who was committed to the custody of the division for committing an offense other than those referenced above. The bill would require the court to set and convene a parole disposition hearing, as specified, and would provide that the division shall have no further jurisdiction over the ward. By changing the counties’ responsibilities with respect to juvenile offenses, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
Existing law authorizes the Board of Parole Hearings to suspend, cancel, or revoke any parole and order returned to custody of the Division of Juvenile Facilities any person committed to the division who is on parole.
This bill would provide, commencing September 1, 2007, that any parolee under the jurisdiction of the Division of Juvenile Parole Operations shall be returned to the custody of the Division of Juvenile Facilities if the parolee is under the jurisdiction of the division for the commission of an offense referenced above, or to the custody of the county of commitment if the parolee is under the jurisdiction of the division for the commission of an offense other than those referenced above.
Existing law establishes within the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation the State Commission on Juvenile Justice, which is comprised of 11 members whom are appointed, as specified, by the Senate Committee on Rules, the Speaker of the Assembly, the chairperson of the Judicial Council, and the Governor, after consultation with, and with the advice of, the secretary of the department, and with the advice and consent of the Senate.

Existing law requires the county of commitment to make specified payments to the state for each person committed to the Division of Juvenile Facilities, including a percentage of per capita institutional cost.
This bill would establish the Youthful Offender Block Grant Program, commencing September 1, 2007, to enhance the capacity of county departments to provide appropriate rehabilitative and supervision services to youthful offenders, and would require the State Commission on Juvenile Justice to develop a Juvenile Justice Operational Master Plan for that purpose, as specified. The bill would require the Director of Finance to determine the total amount of the block grant pursuant to a specified formula and the allocation for each county, and to report those findings to the Controller who would then make an allocation to each county from the Youthful Offender Block Grant Fund, as established by this bill. The bill would provide for an annual increase in those amounts. The bill would require each county, on or before January 1, 2008, to prepare and submit to the Corrections Standards Authority for approval a Juvenile Justice Development Plan for youthful offenders that includes a description of the programs, placements, services, or strategies to be funded by the block grant allocation. By increasing the duties of local officials, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
This bill would authorize the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, a participating county, as defined, and the State Public Works Board to enter into a construction agreement in order to acquire, design, renovate, or construct a local youthful offender rehabilitative facility approved by the Corrections Standards Authority, as specified. This bill would authorize the board to issue up to $100,000,000 in revenue bonds, notes, or bond anticipation notes to finance the acquisition, design, renovation, or construction of approved local youthful offender rehabilitative facilities and would appropriate those funds for that purpose. This bill would provide that these provisions would become inoperative on June 30, 2017.
The bill would make a specified statement of legislative intent regarding the adequacy of the funding for the state mandate.
Existing law generally regulates the conditions of confinement for inmates and wards in state institutions and facilities. Existing law generally authorizes contracting by the state for the provision of specified services in connection with state institutions and facilities.
This bill would require the Department of General Services, in coordination with the Department of Technology Services, pursuant to other provisions of existing law, to amend contracts that provide telephone services to inmates and wards in state facilities in order to limit the amount of state concession fees per a prescribed schedule over several fiscal years, as specified.
Existing law appropriates $50,000,000 to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to supplement funds for rehabilitation and treatment of prison inmates and parolees. The funds may be used for staffing, contracts, and other services that include academic and vocational services, substance abuse treatment, and mental health treatment.
This bill would provide that those funds shall be used for developing prison-to-employment programs, expanding substance abuse programs for inmates and parolees, developing and implementing a risk assessment and needs assessment for inmates, establishing and funding day treatment services for mentally ill parolees, and expanding educational and vocational programs for inmates.
Existing law establishes within the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation the Corrections Standards Authority which is charged with studying crime, as specified, with particular reference to conditions in California.
This bill would provide that the Corrections Standards Authority shall allocate funding for 2 one-time probation pilot projects, as specified. Each pilot project shall be funded at $5,000,000 and shall be provided to one county probation department, as specified.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.
This bill would provide that its provisions are severable.

The department shall report on any funds to be expended for this purpose to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee. If the committee fails to take any action with respect to each notification within 20 days after submittal, this inaction shall be deemed to be approval for purposes of this section.

(b) The scope and costs of the projects described in subdivision (a) of this section shall be subject to approval and administrative oversight by the State Public Works Board, including augmentations, pursuant to Section 13332.11 of the Government Code.

The amount of the total appropriation in Section 28 of Chapter 7 of the Statutes of 2007 that is necessary for each infrastructure improvement project shall be allocated by institution. The appropriation may be allocated based on current estimates. These initial allocations may be adjusted commensurate to changes that occur during the progression of the projects.

Once the total appropriation has been allocated, any augmentation necessary to fund an anticipated deficit shall be based on the total appropriation and allocated to each project as necessary. The Joint Legislative Budget Committee shall be notified 30 days prior to the establishment of scope, schedule, and cost for each project by the board. The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation shall notify the Joint Legislative Budget Committee 45 days prior to the submission of preliminary plans to the board for each project.

The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation shall report on the allocations from the appropriation in Section 28 of Chapter 7 of the Statutes of 2007 and the anticipated deficit or savings to the Joint Legislative Budget Committee quarterly.
(c) The scope and costs of the projects described in subdivision (a) shall be part of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s Master Plan, as defined in Section 7000.

CHAPTER  1.5. Youthful Offender Block Grant Program
Article  1. General Provisions

1950.

1951.
 (a) There is hereby established the Youthful Offender Block Grant Fund.
(b) Allocations from the Youthful Offender Block Grant Fund shall be used to enhance the capacity of county probation, mental health, drug and alcohol, and other county departments to provide appropriate rehabilitative and supervision services to youthful offenders subject to Sections 731.1, 733, 1766, and 1767.35. Counties, in expending the Youthful Offender Block Grant allocation, shall provide all necessary services related to the custody and parole of the offenders.
(c) The county of commitment is relieved of obligation for any payment to the state pursuant to Section 912, 912.1, or 912.5 for each offender who is not committed to the custody of the state solely pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 733, and for each offender who is supervised by the county of commitment pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 1766 or subdivision (b) of Section 1767.35.

1954.
 For the 2009–10 fiscal year, and each year thereafter, an amount shall be transferred from the General Fund to the Youthful Offender Block Grant Fund equal to that amount transferred to the Youthful Offender Block Grant Fund for the 2008–09 fiscal year, as described in subdivisions (a), (b), and (c) of Section 1953, adjusted to account for full-year impact.

(a) Implementing risk and needs assessment tools and evaluations to assist in the identification of appropriate youthful offender dispositions and reentry plans.
(b) Placements in secure and semisecure youthful offender rehabilitative facilities and in private residential care programs, with or without foster care waivers, supporting specialized programs for youthful offenders.

(d) House arrest, electronic monitoring, and intensive probation supervision programs.
(e) Reentry and aftercare programs based on individual aftercare plans for each offender who is released from a public or private placement or confinement facility.
(f) Capacity building strategies to upgrade the training and qualifications of juvenile justice and probation personnel serving the juvenile justice caseload.

The plan shall include both of the following:
(a) A description of the programs, placements, services, or strategies to be funded by the block grant allocation pursuant to this chapter, including, but not limited to, the programs, tools, and strategies outlined in Section 1960.
