Explanation

The bill results in potential revenue loss to the Correctional Commissaries and the Correctional General Welfare fund and an equal revenue gain to the General Fund by requiring that any fund balances be transferred to the General Fund to offset the provision of medical care for inmates. Before $1.25 million was swept in PA 16-1, the March Deficit Mitigation Plan, the Commissaries account had a balance of $4.0 million, and the General Welfare fund had a balance of $726,000.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation.
