In addition, the Department would be required to return, if possible, any funds remaining in an inmate account to the former inmate within 60 days following the inmate’s release and to report annually to the Council the aggregate amount of funds remaining in all accounts of former inmates who are no longer incarcerated.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
