Eye On Boise

CAPP program funded

The budget set by JFAC this morning for the state’s prison system shifts various funds around to cover the $2.5 million bond payment and operational costs of the Correctional Alternative Placement Program, a new facility that’s scheduled to open in May of 2010. “The bond payment was not included in the governor’s budget recommendation,” noted Senate Finance Chairman Dean Cameron, R-Rupert. “I’m not sure how they were going to handle that, but at least we’ve taken care of it.” Committee members complimented Rep. Darrell Bolz, R-Caldwell, and legislative budget analyst Dick Burns for their work on the corrections budget motions, all of which passed unanimously.
