(b) The fund may be used to supplement or offset, or both, the expenses associated with parole supervision or treatment services. The determination of the appropriateness of use of funds rests with the commissioner of the division of corrections or his or her designee.



NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to create a special revenue account designated the Parole Supervision Benefit fund. The fund is to be used by the Division of Corrections on behalf of its Parole Services Section.
