Criminal Legal Reform
Bill Number: SB18-016
Year: 2018
ACLU Position: Support
Sponsors: J. Singer/R. Fields/ B. Martinez Humenik


Legislative Oversight Committee Concerning the Treatment
of Persons with Mental Health Disorders in the Criminal and
Juvenile Justice Systems.
 In 2017, the general assembly enacted a
provision requiring at the end of the 2016-17 fiscal year the state treasurer
to transfer unexpended and unencumbered money appropriated for
community corrections programs to a new fund to assist persons
transitioning from the criminal or juvenile justice systems. The act
repealed the provision in 2018.
The bill eliminates the repeal of the provision so that the transfer
occurs at the end of each state fiscal year.
