An Act To Raise the Base Assessment for Correctional Services for Oxford County

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 30-A MRSA 701, sub- 2-D is enacted to read:

2-D. Tax assessment for correctional services for calendar year 2017. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection 2-C, for calendar year 2017 the assessment for correctional services for municipalities in Oxford County may not be less than $1,228,757 and may not be greater than $2,050,000.

SUMMARY

This bill is submitted by the Joint Standing Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety pursuant to Joint Order 2016, Senate Paper 695. It is the majority report of the committee. This bill establishes for calendar year 2017 a minimum tax assessment for Oxford County for correctional services of $1,228,757 and a maximum tax assessment of $2,050,000. This bill addresses a critical need for funding for the Oxford County jail, which can be satisfied through county taxes if the base assessment for correctional services is increased.
