Fifty-Fourth Legislature, First Regular Session

 

FACT SHEET FOR S.B. 1140

 

county contributions; committed youth; repeal.

Purpose

Repeals the Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections (ADJC) Local Cost Sharing Fund (Fund).

Background

The ADJC is required to annually assess a fee to each county and administer the Fund. Failure to pay the assessed fees requires the State Treasurer to withhold transaction privilege taxes that would otherwise be distributed to the counties until the assessed fee is paid (A.R.S.
41-2832 and 41-2833).

In FY 2019 each county was required to pay their proportional share of $11,260,000 according to their population in the 2010 U.S. decennial census (Laws 2018, Chapter 278).

The anticipated fiscal impact to the state General Fund associated with this legislation is unknown at this time.

Provisions

1.      Repeals statute relating to the establishment of the Fund and collection of fees associated with the Fund.

2.      Transfers all unexpended and unencumbered monies remaining in the Fund to the state General Fund and appropriates the same amount of monies to the Arizona Department of Administration (ADOA).

3.      Requires the ADOA to distribute the appropriated amount to each county in a proportional share using population data from the most recent U.S. decennial census.

4.      Becomes effective on the general effective date.
