  385         (21) “Prescription” means and includes an order for drugs
  386  or medicinal supplies written, signed, or transmitted by word of
  387  mouth, telephone, telegram, or other means of communication by a
  388  duly licensed practitioner licensed by the laws of the state to
  389  prescribe such drugs or medicinal supplies, issued in good faith
  390  and in the course of professional practice, intended to be
  391  filled, compounded, or dispensed by another person licensed by
  392  the laws of the state to do so, and meeting the requirements of
  393  s. 893.04. The term also includes an order for drugs or
  394  medicinal supplies so transmitted or written by a physician,
  395  dentist, veterinarian, or other practitioner licensed to
  396  practice in a state other than Florida, but only if the
  397  pharmacist called upon to fill such an order determines, in the
  398  exercise of his or her professional judgment, that the order was
  399  issued pursuant to a valid patient-physician relationship, that
  400  it is authentic, and that the drugs or medicinal supplies so
  401  ordered are considered necessary for the continuation of
  402  treatment of a chronic or recurrent illness. However, if the
  403  physician writing the prescription is not known to the
  404  pharmacist, the pharmacist shall obtain proof to a reasonable
  405  certainty of the validity of said prescription. A prescription
  406  order for a controlled substance shall not be issued on the same

  410  substance be issued on the same prescription blank as a
  411  prescription order for a medicinal drug, as defined in s.
  412  465.003(8) 465.031(5), which does not fall within the definition
  413  of a controlled substance as defined in this act.

  422  under s. 893.04(1) or s. 893.05(2) is admissible in evidence and

  434  harassment of an identified victim or witness in a criminal case
  435  exists or that such order is necessary to prevent and restrain

  654  application and proofs submitted, if satisfied that probable
  655  cause exists for the issuing of one or more agriculture
  656  warrants, shall issue such agriculture warrants with his or her
  657  signature and office affixed thereto. Such agriculture warrants
  658  may be served and executed by employees of the department, with
  659  the assistance of third parties supervised by department
  660  employees, and shall authorize department employees with such
  661  assistance to undertake all actions authorized by the warrant.

  663  and shall authorize multiple executions of the warrant prior to
  664  its expiration. An agriculture warrant may be extended or

  879  department shall evaluate the feasibility of adding vocational
  880  education programs which have been identified by the Agency for
  881  Workforce Innovation Department of Labor and Employment Security

  953  delivered to the department together with the commitment issued
  954  by the court pursuant to s. 944.17 944.16.

  975  a procedure for providing commissary or canteen facilities or
  976  access to canteen items for the benefit of the inmate. The
  977  commissary or canteen shall not sell food that competes with the
  978  detention facility food program. It is recommended that inmates
  979  routinely carry no money and that a check-off system from their
  980  account be implemented. If money is permitted, a limit shall be
  981  set and all money in possession in excess of that limit shall be
  982  confiscated and deposited immediately in the inmate welfare
  983  fund, if there is one, unless it is needed as evidence in a
  984  trial or disciplinary hearing. If a detention facility does not
  985  have an inmate welfare fund, confiscated moneys shall be
  986  receipted and placed in the inmate’s personal property or inmate
  987  bank account. A shopping list shall be developed and printed for
  988  the information of all inmates with the prices and special
  989  conditions governing each sale shown clearly on such a list.
  990  Valuable items purchased by inmates shall be added to their
  991  personal property list after purchase and marked for
  992  identification.
  993         (b) Canteen prices shall be set so as not to exceed the
  994  fair market value for comparable products sold in the community
  995  where the facility is located.
  996         (c) Expenses involved in the commissary operation,
  997  including compensation for commissary employees and gratuities
  998  for inmates who may assist such employees, may be paid from the
  999  profit.
 1000         (d) Profits from the commissary shall be used for overall
 1001  inmate welfare, and an inmate welfare fund committee shall
 1002  recommend what expenditures are to be made. Activities of the
 1003  committee shall be reviewed by the officer in charge who shall
 1004  have final authority on expenditures. It is recommended that the
 1005  jail chaplain be a member of the committee.
 1006         (e) The officer in charge shall be responsible for an audit
 1007  of the fiscal management of the commissary by a disinterested
 1008  party on an annual basis, which shall include certification of
 1009  compliance with the pricing requirements of paragraph (1)(b)
 1010  above. Appropriate transaction records and stock inventory shall
 1011  be kept current.
 1012         Section 43. Paragraph (c) of subsection (1) of section
 1013  951.231, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
 1014         951.231 County residential probation program.—
 1015         (1) Any prisoner who has been sentenced under s. 921.18 to
 1016  serve a sentence in a county residential probation center as
 1017  described in s. 951.23 shall:
 1018         (c) Participate in and complete the program required by s.
 1019  958.045 958.04(4), if required by the supervisor of the center.
 1020         Section 44. Subsection (4) of section 957.07, Florida
 1021  Statutes, is amended to read:
 1022         957.07 Cost-saving requirements.—
 1023         (4) The Department of Corrections shall provide a report
 1024  detailing the state cost to design, finance, acquire, lease,
 1025  construct, and operate a facility similar to the private
 1026  correctional facility on a per diem basis. This report shall be
 1027  provided to the Auditor General in sufficient time that it may
 1028  be certified to the Department of Management Services commission
 1029  to be included in the request for proposals.
 1030         Section 45. Subsection (3) of section 960.003, Florida
 1031  Statutes, is amended to read:
 1032         960.003 HIV testing for persons charged with or alleged by
 1033  petition for delinquency to have committed certain offenses;
 1034  disclosure of results to victims.—
 1035         (3) DISCLOSURE OF RESULTS.—
 1036         (a) The results of the test shall be disclosed no later
 1037  than 2 weeks after the court receives such results, under the
 1038  direction of the Department of Health, to the person charged
 1039  with or alleged by petition for delinquency to have committed or
 1040  to the person convicted of or adjudicated delinquent for any
 1041  offense enumerated in s. 775.0877(1)(a)-(n), which involves the
 1042  transmission of body fluids from one person to another, and,
 1043  upon request, to the victim or the victim’s legal guardian, or
 1044  the parent or legal guardian of the victim if the victim is a
 1045  minor, and to public health agencies pursuant to s. 775.0877. If
 1046  the alleged offender is a juvenile, the test results shall also
 1047  be disclosed to the parent or guardian. When the victim is a
 1048  victim as described in paragraph (2)(b), the test results must
 1049  also be disclosed no later than 2 weeks after the court receives
 1050  such results, to the person charged with or alleged by petition
 1051  for delinquency to have committed or to the person convicted of
 1052  or adjudicated delinquent for any offense enumerated in s.
 1053  775.0877(1)(a)-(n), or s. 825.1025 regardless of whether the
 1054  offense involves the transmission of bodily fluids from one
 1055  person to another, and, upon request, to the victim or the
 1056  victim’s legal guardian, or the parent or legal guardian of the
 1057  victim, and to public health agencies pursuant to s. 775.0877.
 1058  Otherwise, HIV test results obtained pursuant to this section
 1059  are confidential and exempt from the provisions of s. 119.07(1)
 1060  and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State Constitution and shall not be
 1061  disclosed to any other person except as expressly authorized by
 1062  law or court order.
 1063         (b) At the time that the results are disclosed to the
 1064  victim or the victim’s legal guardian, or to the parent or legal
 1065  guardian of a victim if the victim is a minor, the same
 1066  immediate opportunity for face-to-face counseling which must be
 1067  made available under s. 381.004(3)(e) to those who undergo HIV
 1068  testing shall also be afforded to the victim or the victim’s
 1069  legal guardian, or to the parent or legal guardian of the victim
 1070  if the victim is a minor.
 1071         Section 46. Subsections (6) and (7) of section 984.225,
 1072  Florida Statutes, are amended to read:
 1073         984.225 Powers of disposition; placement in a staff-secure
 1074  shelter.—
 1075         (6) The department is deemed to have exhausted the
 1076  reasonable remedies offered under this chapter if, at the end of
 1077  the commitment period, the parent, guardian, or legal custodian
 1078  continues to refuse to allow the child to remain at home or
 1079  creates unreasonable conditions for the child’s return. If, at
 1080  the end of the commitment period, the child is not reunited with
 1081  his or her parent, guardian, or custodian due solely to the
 1082  continued refusal of the parent, guardian, or custodian to
 1083  provide food, clothing, shelter, and parental support, the child
 1084  is considered to be threatened with harm as a result of such
 1085  acts or omissions, and the court shall direct that the child be
 1086  handled in every respect as a dependent child. Jurisdiction
 1087  shall be transferred to the Department of Children and Family
 1088  Services and the child’s care shall be governed under the
 1089  relevant provisions parts II and III of chapter 39.
 1090         (7) The court shall review the child’s commitment once
 1091  every 45 days as provided in s. 984.20. The court shall
 1092  determine if the parent, guardian, or custodian has reasonably
 1093  participated in and financially contributed to the child’s
 1094  counseling and treatment program. The court shall also determine
 1095  whether the department’s efforts to reunite the family have been
 1096  reasonable. If the court finds an inadequate level of support or
 1097  participation by the parent, guardian, or custodian prior to the
 1098  end of the commitment period, the court shall direct that the
 1099  child be handled in every respect as a dependent child.
 1100  Jurisdiction shall be transferred to the Department of Children
 1101  and Family Services and the child’s care shall be governed under
 1102  the relevant provisions parts II and III of chapter 39.
 1103         Section 47. Section 985.486, Florida Statutes, is amended
 1104  to read:
 1105         985.486 Intensive residential treatment programs for
 1106  offenders less than 13 years of age; prerequisite for
 1107  commitment.—No child who is eligible for commitment to an
 1108  intensive residential treatment program for offenders less than
 1109  13 years of age under s. 985.483 as established in s.
 1110  985.483(1), may be committed to any intensive residential
 1111  treatment program for offenders less than 13 years of age under
 1112  s. 985.483 as established in s. 985.483, unless such program has
 1113  been established by the department through existing resources or
 1114  specific appropriation, for such program.
 1115         Section 48. Paragraph (a) of subsection (4) and subsection
 1116  (7) of section 985.632, Florida Statutes, are amended to read:
 1117         985.632 Quality assurance and cost-effectiveness.—
 1118         (4)(a) The Department of Juvenile Justice, in consultation
 1119  with the Office of Economic and Demographic Research, and
 1120  contract service providers, shall develop a cost-effectiveness
 1121  model and apply the model to each commitment program. Program
 1122  recidivism rates shall be a component of the model. The cost
 1123  effectiveness model shall compare program costs to client
 1124  outcomes and program outputs. It is the intent of the
 1125  Legislature that continual development efforts take place to
 1126  improve the validity and reliability of the cost-effectiveness
 1127  model and to integrate the standard methodology developed under
 1128  s. 985.401(4) for interpreting program outcome evaluations.
 1129         (7) No later than November 1, 2001, the department shall
 1130  submit a proposal to the Legislature concerning funding
 1131  incentives and disincentives for the department and for
 1132  providers under contract with the department. The
 1133  recommendations for funding incentives and disincentives shall
 1134  be based upon both quality assurance performance and cost
 1135  effectiveness performance. The proposal should strive to achieve
 1136  consistency in incentives and disincentives for both department
 1137  operated and contractor-provided programs. The department may
 1138  include recommendations for the use of liquidated damages in the
 1139  proposal; however, the department is not presently authorized to
 1140  contract for liquidated damages in non-hardware-secure
 1141  facilities until January 1, 2002.
 1142         Section 49. Paragraph (b) of subsection (2) of section
 1143  985.686, Florida Statutes, is reenacted to read:
 1144         985.686 Shared county and state responsibility for juvenile
 1145  detention.—
 1146         (2) As used in this section, the term:
 1147         (b) “Fiscally constrained county” means a county within a
 1148  rural area of critical economic concern as designated by the
 1149  Governor pursuant to s. 288.0656 or each county for which the
 1150  value of a mill will raise no more than $5 million in revenue,
 1151  based on the certified school taxable value certified pursuant
 1152  to s. 1011.62(4)(a)1.a., from the previous July 1.
 1153         Section 50. This act shall take effect July 1, 2010.
