An Act To Better Coordinate and Reduce the Cost of the Delivery of State and County Correctional Services

Emergency preamble. Whereas,  acts and resolves of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and

Whereas,  the unification of state and county correctional services will require concentrated planning and continued coordination of efforts for successful implementation; and

Whereas,  authorizing the transitional team to meet immediately will contribute to this effort and help lay the foundation for the work of the corrections working group and the State Board of Corrections; and

Whereas,  in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:
Parts: A B C

Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this legislation takes effect when approved.
