(1) The Commission on Public Advocacy Operations Cash Fund is created. The fund shall be used for the operations of the commission, except that transfers may be made from the fund to the General Fund at the direction of the Legislature through June 30, 2011. The Commission on Public Advocacy Operations Cash Fund shall consist of money remitted pursuant to section 33-156. It is the intent of the Legislature that the commission shall be funded solely from the fund. Any money in the fund available for investment shall be invested by the state investment officer pursuant to the Nebraska Capital Expansion Act and the Nebraska State Funds Investment Act.

(2) On July 1, 2011, or as soon thereafter as administratively possible, the State Treasurer shall transfer one hundred thousand dollars from the Commission on Public Advocacy Operations Cash Fund to the Supreme Court Education Fund. The State Court Administrator shall use these funds to assist the juvenile justice system in providing prefiling and diversion programming designed to reduce excessive absenteeism and unnecessary involvement with the juvenile justice system.

(3) The State Treasurer shall transfer the following amounts from the Commission on Public Advocacy Operations Cash Fund to the Court Appointed Special Advocate Fund:

(a) On July 1, 2011, or as soon thereafter as administratively possible, one hundred thousand dollars; and

(b) On July 1, 2012, or as soon thereafter as administratively possible, two hundred thousand dollars.

(4) On July 1, 2012, or as soon thereafter as administratively possible, the State Treasurer shall transfer sixty thousand dollars from the Commission on Public Advocacy Operations Cash Fund to the Nebraska State Patrol Cash Fund.

The Nebraska State Patrol shall use such funds to contract with the University of Nebraska to study sex offender recidivism data before and after the passage of Laws 2009, LB285, which changed the Nebraska sex offender classification system from an evaluation of risk assessment system to an offense-based assessment system in the attempt by the state to comply with federal requirements under the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006.
