(1) Revenue collected in the Surcharge Fund is distributed to counties for costs associated with operations of the jails per PL 1987, c. 339 (4 MRSA, 1057). FY 2005 expenditures for the Surcharge Fund were below prior years due to technology conversion difficulties at the Traffic Violations Bureau.
(2) FY 1987 through FY 1998 represent reimbursement to counties for costs related to the support of certain prisoners at county correctional facilities, enacted by PL 1985, c. 821 (34-A MRSA, 1210). Fiscal year 1999 and beyond represents funding to the County Jail Prisoner Support and Community Corrections Fund, enacted by PL 1997, c. 753 (34-A MRSA, 1210-A).
(3) These amounts represent the salary and fringe benefits for state positions working in the eight prosecutorial districts. All other costs of the District Attorney's offices are funded by county funds. In the absence of this special arrangement, the salaries and fringe benefits of these state positions would also be supported by county funds.
(4) PL 1997, c. 750 established the Law Enforcement Agency Reimbursement Fund to provide reimbursement to municipal and county law enforcement officers for serving as court officers or witnesses. Prior to FY 1999, municipal law enforcement officers were reimbursed by the Judicial Department out of funds appropriated to the department from the General Fund; estimates are not available.
(5) These amounts represent tobacco fine revenue collected by the courts and issued to municipal law enforcement agencies as grants by the Maine Criminal Justice Academy to perform tobacco enforcement.
(6) Budgeted through 125th Legislature, 2nd Regular Session. Does not include funds in the Correctional Impact Reserve program.
