Implementer § 209 — DOC Report on Prison Substance Use and Mental Health Services

In doing so, the commissioner must consult with the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and the judicial branch.
The bill requires the DOC commissioner, starting by January 1, 2023, to annually report on this review to the Judiciary, Public Health, and Appropriations committees.
