Explanation

The bill expands the provisions that allow certain juvenile matters to be transferred from juvenile court to Superior Court and, to the extent that it results in a great number of incarcerations, results in a potential cost to the Department of Correction. On average, the marginal cost to the state for incarcerating an offender for the year is $1,9001.

The Out Years

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

1 Inmate marginal cost is based on increased consumables (e.g. food, clothing, water, sewage, living supplies, etc.) This does not include a change in staffing costs or utility expenses because these would only be realized if a unit or facility opened.
