PENAL CODE
SECTION 4497

4497.  (a) The Legislature finds and declares that approval by the
electors of the County Correctional Facilities Capital Expenditure
and Youth Facility Bond Act of 1988 has made new funds available for
the construction and renovation of county jails and county juvenile
facilities. The Legislature hereby directs the Board of Corrections
to allocate and administer the moneys intended in the County
Correctional Facilities Capital Expenditure and Youth Facility Bond
Act of 1988 for county jails, and the Department of the Youth
Authority to allocate and administer the moneys intended in the
County Correctional Facilities Capital Expenditure and Youth Facility
Bond Act of 1988 for juvenile facilities, in accordance with the
provisions of this title.
   (b) Money appropriated for allocation under this title may be used
for the renovation, replacement, reconstruction, or construction of
county jail facilities, county medical facilities designated to house
persons charged with or convicted of a crime and who are mentally
ill, and county juvenile facilities. Money appropriated by this title
may also be used for construction of separate local detention
facility space for detoxification of persons arrested because of
intoxication.
   (c) It is the Legislature's intention to make the money
appropriated for allocation under this title available to counties
with established and documented needs for capital projects for jail
and juvenile facilities. However, that money shall not be used to
build facilities that the counties cannot afford to operate fully and
safely.
