BY JUDICIARY, RULES AND ADMINISTRATION COMMITTEE
1 AN ACT
2 RELATING TO THE STATE BOARD OF CORRECTION; AMENDING SECTION 20-225, IDAHO
3 CODE, TO INCREASE THE MAXIMUM FEE THAT MAY BE REQUIRED FOR THE PAYMENT OF
4 SUPERVISION COSTS AND TO MAKE TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS.
5 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
6 SECTION 1. That Section 20-225, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
7 amended to read as follows:
8 20-225. PAYMENT FOR COST OF SUPERVISION. Any person under state probation
9 or parole supervision shall be required to contribute not more than forty
10 fifty dollars ($ 450.00) per month as determined by the board of correction.
11 Costs of supervision are the direct and indirect costs incurred by the depart-
12 ment of correction to supervise probationers and parolees, including tests to
13 determine drug and alcohol use, books and written materials to support reha-
14 bilitation efforts, and monitoring of physical location through the use of
15 technology. Any failure to pay such contribution shall constitute grounds for
16 the revocation of probation by the court or the revocation of parole by the
17 commission for pardons and parole. The division of probation and parole in the
18 department of correction may exempt a person from the payment of all or any
19 part of the foregoing contribution if it finds any of the following factors to
21 (1) The offender has diligently attempted but been unable to obtain
23 (2) The offender has an employment handicap, as determined by a physical,
24 psychological, or psychiatric examination acceptable to the division of
25 probation and parole.
26 Money collected as a fee for services will be placed in the probation and
27 parole receipts account revenue fund, which is hereby created in the dedicated
28 fund in the state treasury, and utilized to provide supervision for clients.
29 Moneys in the probation and parole receipts account revenue fund may be
30 expended only after appropriation by the legislature.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
According to existing Idaho Code Section 20-225, any person under
state probation or parole supervision shall be required to pay a
set fee amount to help defray the direct and indirect costs
incurred by the Department of Correction in the supervision of
probationers and parolees. Idaho Code Sections 20-219, 20-220, and
Article X, Section 5 of the State Constitution, describe that
probation and parole must provide services to all convicted felons
and must not limit case load growth or the number of pre-sentence
The objective of this legislation is to increase the monthly cost
of supervision fee assessed offenders by ten dollars, from the
current forty dollars ($40.00) to fifty dollars ($50.00) per month.
This change in set fee amounts will allow the Division to alleviate
workload pressure on current probation and parole employees caused
by the increasing levels of offender populations, by funding new
positions and generating funds to cover related operating costs.
Community Corrections charges 97% of supervised offenders a monthly
fee, and collects an average of $28.10 per month from each. The
proposed ten dollars per month fee increase will generate an
additional $822,830 in revenue per year for the Department to cover
the cost of needed additional personnel and operating expenses
attributed to population growth.
As specified in statute, monies generated through collection of
this fee are placed in the probation and parole receipts account
(dedicated fund in the state treasury). This request will not
impact the General Fund.
