AN ACT TO EXPAND THE AUTHORIZED USES OF GRANT FUNDS PROVIDED TO THE CONFERENCE OF DISTRICT ATTORNEYS.
Amends GS 18B.4 of SL 2013-360, concerning funds appropriated to the Conference on District Attorneys for district attorneys across the state to obtain toxicology analyses from local hospitals for persons charged with driving while impaired but whose conduct did not result in serious injury or death to others, now providing that the funding can be used (1) to receive a toxicology analysis for those charged as stated above, but adds clarifying language that specifically limits it to cases in which the person's conduct did not result in serious injury or death to others, and (2) for forensic DNA analysis (previously, did not allow funds to be used for DNA analysis). Also provides that the funding can be used to obtain the specified analyses from private laboratories approved by the State Crime Lab as complying with Combined DNA Index System requirements (previously, only approved funds to be used at local hospitals).
Effective July 1, 2015.
