Explanation

The bill creates the Criminal Justice Policy Planning Division within the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) to develop a plan for a more cohesive state criminal justice system. It is anticipated that implementation of this bill will require seven additional positions and associated expenses in both years of the biennium. The budget bill, sHB 6671, as favorably reported by the Appropriations Committee, contains funds in FY07 for this purpose in a newly established agency rather than the Office of Policy and Management. No funds were included for this purpose in FY 06.
