33-601.223: Designation of Institutions for Youthful Offenders
PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose and effect of the proposed rulemaking is to remove the list of specific youthful offender institutions and indicate that youthful offenders may be reassigned to non-youthful offender facilities per Section 958.11, F.S.
SUMMARY: The proposed rule removes the list of specific youthful offender institutions and indicates that youthful offenders may be reassigned to non-youthful offender facilities pursuant to Section 958.11, F.S.
SUMMARY OF STATEMENT OF ESTIMATED REGULATORY COSTS AND LEGISLATIVE RATIFICATION: The agency has determined that this rule will not have an adverse impact on small business and is not likely to directly or indirectly increase regulatory costs by more than $200,000 within one year of taking effect. A SERC has not been prepared by the agency. Based on analysis from the Bureau of Classification and Central Records indicating that the rule change only affects internal operations of the Department by permitting more flexibility in where a youthful offender program will be located and would not have an impact on small business or the private sector, the rule is not expected to require legislative ratification.
Any person who wishes to provide information regarding a statement of estimated regulatory costs, or provide a proposal for a lower cost regulatory alternative must do so in writing within 21 days of this notice.
RULEMAKING AUTHORITY: 944.09, 958.11 FS.

IF REQUESTED WITHIN 21 DAYS OF THE DATE OF THIS NOTICE, A HEARING WILL BE SCHEDULED AND ANNOUNCED IN THE FAW.
