"An Act extending the termination date of the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. "


 

This legislation stems from recommendations contained in the Legislative Audit Report entitled "Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Sunset Audit", dated September 23, 2005.

Legislative Audit concluded that the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (Council) continues to serve a public need and is operating in the public interest. Accordingly, SB 250 extends the sunset date of the Council to June 30, 2014 for an eight-year extension.

Legislative Audit also recommended that the Legislature amend the Council statutes related to the appointment of Council members. Current law requires the Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (Network), a non-profit corporation, to submit a list of recommended candidates to the Governor for appointment when a vacancy occurs. Further, statutes require that the Governor fill any unexpired term of a Council member after consultation with the Network.

The Network annually receives a grant from the Council for a legal advocacy project and the appearance of conflict exists when a Council member reviews, evaluates, approves and monitors a grant to the same nonprofit organization that may have been responsible for recommending that individual be appointed to the Council. SB 250 deletes both statutory references that produce this appearance of conflict.

This audit was conducted under revisions made last session to the sunset process. The standard sunset period for occupational boards and non-occupational boards was changed from "not to exceed four years" to "not to exceed eight years". Additionally, to better measure operational performance, two new criteria were added to statute that must be considered in the course of a sunset review by the auditors:

  • The extent to which the board, commission, or agency has effectively attained its objectives and the efficiency with which it has operated.
  • The extent to which the board, commission, or agency duplicates the activities of another governmental agency or the private sector.
