Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact


                  STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                       RS 10546

The purpose of the language changes to Statute 20-214 are to 
provide the state board of correction with the power and 
authority to specify the training of IDOC employees.  POST 
will be submitting a proposed amendment to Statute 19-5109, 
as follows:  The council may implement such minimum basic 
training and certification standards for department of 
correction assistants and officers as the board of correction 
may specify.

                     

The proposed changes will have an impact on state funds when 
POST takes over pre-service and specialty training for IDOC.  
Because POST is in the process of developing their budget and 
hasn't completed their assessment of costs related to taking 
over IDOC training, it is difficult to ascertain what the 
fiscal impact will be.
