Introduced by Rep. Tommy Brann (R) on November 30, 2021
To revise the “maintenance of effort” spending requirement that comes with counties accepting the privilege of having their own sheriff road patrols augmented with State Police “secondary road patrols” at no charge. This refers to a requirement that counties use this subsidy to permit a net-increase in patrols rather than substitute patrols paid for by state taxpayers for ones provided by county taxpayers. The bill would slightly water-down that requirement in some instances. See also House Bills 5732 and 5772. Official Text and Analysis.
