On Thursday, September 12, 2013, the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) appeared before the Legislative Budget Commission to seek approval of a revised spending plan. Changes to the spending plan were requested due to a substantial budget deficit within the secure detention program due to the First DCA's ruling regarding the cost share relationship between the counties and the state. To address the shortfall, DJJ proposed a plan that would generate a little over $17 million to offset the projected $35.5 million deficit for FY13-14. Specifically, DJJ requested the budget release of the entire General Revenue Fund appropriated in the Detention Centers budget entity, use of projected cash surpluses in the Grants & Donation Trust Fund and Social Services Block Grant Trust Fund, delay of the implementation of certain non-critical contracts, and the temporary charge of Detention expenditures to the Probation & Community Corrections and Residential Corrections Programs. The Commission voted unanimously to approve the request.
