TO REPEAL THE PROHIBITION ON CONTRACTING FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF PRISON FACILITIES AND TO DIRECT THE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION TO EXPAND THE SCOPE OF A CURRENT MAINTENANCE REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS.
Conference report, reported in by the House, recommends the following changes to 2nd edition, as amended, to reconcile matters in controversy.
Withdraws the previous amendment, which (1) directed the Department of Correction (DOC), effective when the act becomes law, to report findings on maintenance service contracts at prison facilities when the General Assembly reconvenes in 2012, and prohibited the DOC from expanding contracts before July 1, 2012; and (2) directed the Department of Public Safety, effective January 1, 2012, in the same manner if House Bill 200 became law. Conference report instead directs (1) the DOC, effective when the act becomes law, to study the benefits and costs of contracting for maintenance services at prison facilities and report findings to the 2013 session of the General Assembly, and prohibits the DOC from expanding private maintenance contracts to additional prison facilities unless authorized by the 2013 session of the General Assembly; and (2) directs the Department of Public Safety, effective January 1, 2012, in the same manner.
Directs the Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources to grant a waiver to allow additional connections to a bond-funded water line within certain designated areas and under detailed circumstances. Makes a conforming change to the bill title.
