February 19, 2012


"An Act relating to the employment of prisoners; and providing for an effective date. "


"SB 310 is a vital piece of legislation if we are to continue inmate work and vocational training programs in our correctional facilities."
- Sen. Wilken

 

Section 1. Deletes the "Correctional Industries Program" from AS 23.15.580(g) and focuses on employment of prison inmates while incarcerated. The Correctional Industries Program sunset on July 1, 2005.

Section 2. Replaces "agency" with "private organization" and specifies that a contract for prison labor must include at least minimum wage required by AS 23.10.065 and paid in a timely manner according to contract. Removes reference to Correctional Industries Commission.

Section 3. Removes reference to Correctional Industries Commission oversight.

Section 4. Removes the reference to AS 33.32 Correctional Industries and renumbers provisions.

Section 6. Allows the Commissioner to establish inmate compensation based on minimum wage for partnerships with private vendors and based on prevailing wage to participate in federal Prison Industry Enhancement (PIE) programs (partnerships with private vendors that sell products across state lines). Past legislation did not have provisions to pay prevailing wage as required by federal PIE programs.

Section 8. Removes the reference to Correctional Industries.

Section 9. Is amended by adding a new paragraph that allows the cost of confinement to be deducted from prisoner wages.

Section 10. Removes the reference to purchases of livestock. Removes the reference to the Correctional Industries Fund and Commission.

Section 11. Adds a new section to provide for transition from the former Correctional Industries Fund to program receipts and provides an effective date matching the sunset date of July 1, 2005.

Section 12. Adds a new section to provide for transition from previous legislation for the non-coverage of AS 23.30 (Alaska Workers' Compensation Act) for the period July 1, 2005 through the day before the effective date of this act.

Section 13. Adds a new section to provide for a retroactive date matching the sunset date of July 1, 2005, for the non-coverage of AS 23.30 (Alaska Workers' Compensation Act).

Section 14. Provides for an immediate effective date.
