Explanation

The amendment potentially reduces or eliminates the cost to the Division of Criminal Justice in the underlying bill. The amendment allows the Division of Criminal Justice to appoint a special assistant state's attorney (cost in the underlying bill) or designate a state's attorney from a judicial district other than the one where the incident occurred, which would eliminate the cost associated with contracting a special assistant state's attorney.
