288-04-050. Policy statement

It is the policy of the jail industries board of directors to meet all the requirements of chapter 36.110 RCW, 18 U.S.C. 1761, and BJA guidelines for the administration of the prison industries enhancement certification program (PIECP). A city or county housing jail inmates that produce goods for sale in interstate commerce will not be certified under PIECP unless the city or county meets these requirements. The board will provide technical assistance to help jurisdictions meet these requirements. The board may create a special revenue fund to help offset jail industries board costs funded by an amount equal to seven and one-half percent of inmates' gross wages. This amount shall be remitted to the jail industries board from the local jurisdictions' authorized deductions from inmate wages.
