    UPDATE: DJJ – Proposed Rules Challenge

    Read More

    On November 12 -13, 2014, an administrative law judge in Tallahassee heard evidence and arguments in the Proposed Rule Challenge brought against DJJ by FAC and 27 counties.  The Rule Challenge was filed after DJJ held a series of rule workshops over the summer in an attempt to promulgate rules that comply with s. 985.686, F.S., the juvenile cost-share statute.  Although DJJ did make some revisions requested by the counties, FAC ultimately believed that the proposed rules did not comply with the mandates of the law.   Again at issue is the legal definitions of “predisposition” and “postdisposition” days , which determines the financial obligations of the counties and state.
