Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill includes General Fund appropriations of $980,000 in fiscal year 2023-24 and $1,240,000 in fiscal year 2024-25 to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) for 10 new Assistant District Attorney positions, 8 of which will be prosecutors for recovery courts, specialty dockets and diversion programs and 2 will be prosecutors for appellate and post-conviction review cases.
The OAG has indicated that it currently provides funding for the Personal Services costs of Assistant District Attorney positions while counties fund the All Other costs associated with such positions. A funding approach consistent with this tradition would reduce the General Fund appropriations to $900,000 in fiscal year 2023-24 and $1,200,000 in fiscal year 2024-25.
