25 employ juvenile offenders in public service work projects for the purpose of
26 reimbursing victims of the juvenile offender's delinquent behavior.

28 to it pursuant to this chapter in a community-based or private program; pro-

24 of the department of health and welfare or the board of health and welfare
25 pursuant to chapter 18, title 16, Idaho Code, are hereby transferred to the
26 director of the department of juvenile corrections. The director shall have

28 his predecessors in law with respect to chapter 18, title 16, Idaho Code, and
29 shall be the successor in law to all contractual obligations entered into by
30 his predecessor in law.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Amending this section changes the name of the state "block grant
funds," which are distributed to counties, to "Juvenile
Corrections Act Funds." These funds will still be passed through
to the counties. Only the name needs to be changed in the
statute for clarification.
There will be no fiscal impact with this amendment.
