Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill includes General Fund appropriations for the Department of Corrections of $150,000 beginning in fiscal year 2018-19 for the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence to support certified batterers' intervention programs for indigent participant fees, training programs, transportation costs and administrative expenses for the coalition. The funding sunsets at the end of the 2020-2021 biennium. Any additional costs for the Department of Corrections to prepare a required report on the effectiveness of the program are assumed to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
