LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 284, Beall. Juvenile justice: county support of wards.
Existing law generally requires a county from which a person is committed to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Justice, to pay to the state an annual rate of $24,000 while the person remains under the direct supervision of the division or remains cared for and supported at the expense of the division.
This bill would increase that annual rate to $125,000 if the offense on which the commitment is based, had it been filed in a court of criminal jurisdiction at the time of adjudication, had a maximum aggregate sentence of fewer than 7 years or if the offense on which the commitment is based occurred when the person was 15 years of age or younger.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
