HB 1384 Inmate workers; court orders allowing work.

Introduced by: Ryan T. McDougle | all patrons    ...    notes | add to my profiles

SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Inmate workers; court orders allowing work. Provides that the circuit or district court of any county or city may enter an order allowing a person confined in a jail operated by that city or county to work on state, county, city, or town property, certain private property, or nonprofit organization property. Currently, the law only allows the courts to enter such orders for persons confined in a jail of that city or county. The amendment would clarify that a court in one county or city could enter such an order for a person confined in a facility operated by that county or city, but that is physically located in another jurisdiction.
