Current Bill Summary

SB 292 - This act revises the Interstate Compact for Juveniles. The compact is an existing agreement between the states regarding the supervision and transfer of juvenile delinquents who have escaped from supervision to another state. Adoption of the compact makes Missouri a member of the Interstate Commission for Juveniles and requires the state to select a compact administrator to manage the state's transfer of those juveniles subject to the compact. The compact establishes the powers and duties of the interstate commission and specifies the bylaws, corporate structure, rule-making authority, financing mechanism, process for dispute resolution, and enforcement provisions. The compact becomes effective August 28, 2007, or upon legislative enactment of the compact into law by no less than 35 states, whichever occurs later.

This act is identical to provisions contained in CCS/HCS/SB 84 (2007).
