Bill Text & Amendments

Important Note: The bill text below presents L.D. 688 as originally introduced. L.D. 688 was changed by the legislature through amendment. To understand the impact of this legislation in proper context, be sure to read adopted amendment text, available here: C-A (S-23) .

An Act To Amend the Laws Related to the Bolduc Correctional Facility

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

Sec. 1. 34-A MRSA 3266, as amended by PL 1999, c. 583, 24 and 25, is repealed.

Sec. 2. 34-A MRSA 4205 is enacted to read:

4205. Employees of the facility

Employees of the facility have the same power as do sheriffs in their respective counties to search for and apprehend escapees from the facility when authorized to do so by the director.

summary

This bill makes the following changes to the laws relating to the Bolduc Correctional Facility:

1. It repeals the statutory provision relating to the Maine State Prison minimum security unit. Because the Bolduc Correctional Facility was established in law in Public Law 2013, chapter 508, this provision is now superfluous.

2. It specifies that employees of the Bolduc Correctional Facility have the same power to search for and apprehend escapees as the employees of the other Department of Corrections facilities have.
