The Fund for Prison Industries is hereby created as an enterprise fund to receive all revenues derived from programs for vocational training and employment of offenders and the operation of the prison farm and to receive all revenues raised by the Department from private employers for the leasing of space, facilities or equipment within the institutions or facilities of the Department.
Money in the Fund must be maintained in separate budgetary accounts, including at least one account for industrial programs and one for the prison farm.
Subject to the approval of the State Board of Examiners, the Director may expend money deposited in this Fund for the promotion and development of these programs and the prison farm. The Director shall expend money deposited in this Fund to pay the premiums required for coverage of offenders under the modified program of industrial insurance adopted pursuant to NRS 616B.028.
The interest and income earned on the money in the Fund, after deducting any applicable charges, must be credited to the Fund.
If money owed to the Department for the leasing of space, facilities or equipment within the institutions or facilities of the Department or for the purchase of goods or services, which must be deposited into the Fund for Prison Industries pursuant to subsection 1, is not paid on or before the date due, the Department shall charge and collect, in addition to the money due, interest on the money due at the rate of 1.5 percent per month or fraction thereof from the date on which the money became due until the date of payment.
