AN ACT relative to the use of drug court program funds.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Drug Offender Grant Program.  Amend RSA 490-G:4, I to read as follows:

I.  There is established a statewide drug offender grant program which shall provide state matching funds as appropriated to support drug courts or alternative drug offender programs in state superior or circuit court districts, as determined by the office of drug offender program coordinator.  The grant program shall be available to counties operating either a drug court or an alternative drug offender program prior to the effective date of this section, and to counties that have not yet implemented a drug court or an alternative drug offender program.  The grant program may use funding to establish a family drug court in any county, including a county that has declined to establish an adult drug court program.  A county shall be eligible for a drug court or an alternative drug offender grant, but not both.  Beginning in fiscal year 2018, the statewide drug offender grant program shall continue as long as it is funded through appropriations in the state operating budget.

2  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
