Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the HIV/AIDS Prevention Program for Department of Corrections Offenders, Significant Others, and Family Members Act. Provides that the Department of Corrections and the Department of Public Health shall jointly develop and implement an HIV/AIDS prevention education program targeted to offenders incarcerated in Department of Corrections facilities, significant others, and family members of adult and juvenile prison inmates. Provides for elements of the program and a report to the General Assembly. Amends the Unified Code of Corrections. Requires HIV testing of all inmates upon admission to and before release from a facility (rather than prior to release of inmates with a documented history of drug use and upon the written informed consent of the inmate). Deletes a provision that HIV testing and counseling is not required unless sufficient funds are appropriated for those purposes. Provides that costs of mandatory education courses taken by inmates at least 17 years of age to qualify for a GED or high school diploma shall be paid by the Department of Corrections (rather than the defendant). Effective immediately.
