The Arizona Commerce Authority Authority was established to facilitate the beneficial economic growth and development of this state and to promote prosperity through the development and protection of the legitimate interests of Arizona business, industry and commerce within and outside this state.
The Authority was established by Governor Jan Brewer Executive Order and created a public-private board of directors to provide private sector leadership and support to diversity the state economy, create new jobs, and attract businesses. Prior to creation of the Arizona Commerce Authority, many of these duties were housed in the Arizona Department of Commerce.
See Arizona Department of Commerce, this document. In the State Compensation Fund was established as a stand-alone agency. It was subsequently privatized and terminated as a state agency, effective January 1, The employer, not the employee, pays the insurance premium. The State Compensation Fund was established to help Arizona employers provide medical coverage, rehabilitation and supplemental income for workers injured on the job. Employers could choose to obtain this type of insurance from the SCF, from a private insurance carrier, or by self-insuring.
Although not required to do so by statute, the SCF served as the insurer of last resort, accepting all employers regardless of claims history, size or business experience. The SCF received no state general fund appropriations, as it generated operating revenues from premiums paid by policyholders and from investment income. If SCF revenues exceeded the amount necessary to cover benefit payments and required reserves, dividends were paid to policyholders. The State Compensation Fund continued until January 1, when it was privatized and replaced by a successor mutual insurer corporation that assumed all liabilities and assets of the SCF.
See Laws , Chapter and Laws , Chapter for additional information. In addition to other responsibilities, the ICA administered the State Compensation Fund, which offered liability insurance to employers. The law also created a liability insurance fund, the State Occupational Disease Compensation Fund, to insure employers against liability and to provide compensation for employees who contracted an occupational disease as a result of their employment.
The State Treasurer served as custodian of the Fund. A board and manager were responsible for oversight of the State Compensation Fund, and the manager handled day-to-day operations of the Fund. In , the Legislature exempted the SCF from requirements related to the state personnel administration, risk management, employee compensation and insurance requirements. The Court stated monies and assets held by the SCF are not public monies, but are assets held in trust for the employer, injured workers and their families. See State Compensation Fund v. In June , SCF Premier was launched as a subsidiary company, which offered lower premium prices to large companies with strong safety records.
Legislation was adopted the following year making conforming changes to state statutes in order to reflect the termination of the SCF Laws , Chapter The Arizona Corporation Commission consists of five elected commissioners. In November , the voters amended the Constitution to expand the size of the Commission from three to five members and modified the term of office.
The term of office is now four years, with the possibility of reelection to one additional consecutive four-year term. The Commissioners are responsible for public utilities regulation, facilitating incorporation of businesses and organizations, granting or denying rate adjustments, enforcing safety and public service requirements and approving securities matters. The Commissioners choose one member from among themselves to serve as Chairman. An Executive Director serves at the pleasure of the Commission and is responsible for the day to day operations of the divisions. As of , there are ten state prisons, and six state-level private facilities.
The Department is overseen by a director that is appointed by the governor. The director must be experienced in adult correctional programs, and have qualifications and training for managing a modern penal system. The Department has four divisions. The Administrative Services Division manages a variety of administrative functions for the Department including financial services; information technology; facilities maintenance and construction; planning, budgeting, and research.
The Offender Operations Division is responsible for the operation and security of state-run prisons. Private prisons contracted with the Department are monitored by the Contract Beds Bureau of this division. Offender Operations also contains the Community Corrections Unit, which retains and monitors inmates granted parole to complete their sentence out in the community.
The Support Services Division administers human resources; staff training and development for employees; and work, education, training, counseling, and treatment services for inmates. This division includes Arizona Correctional Industries ACI , which operates businesses within prison facilities and partners with private employers to provide qualifying inmates with work opportunities.
The purpose of ACI is to provide training and work experience; to reduce the cost to society by allowing inmates to pay some portion of their room and board costs; to make restitution to victims; to require and enable inmates to provide assistance to their families; and to allow an inmate to accumulate savings for eventual return to the community. The Health Services Contract Monitoring Bureau monitors the private contractors that provide on-site healthcare for inmates including general medical and emergency treatment, dental, mental health, and pharmacy services.
Laws governing the operation of state prisons and the treatment of prisoners are found in Title 31, Chapter 2. Laws governing the operation of county jails and treatment of those prisoners are found in Title 31, Chapter 1. Since Territorial days, Arizona law has established both county jails, kept by the sheriffs of the counties where they are located; and territorial state institutions for adult and juvenile offenders. A superintendent and board of control were responsible for operating the prisons.
For more information on the history of institutions for juveniles, refer to the history of the Department of Juvenile Corrections. Laws , Chapter 65 transferred the powers and duties of the Board of Directors of State Institutions to the Governor. The measure also transferred responsibility for the Home for the Aged and Infirm Arizona Pioneers, the State Prison and prison farm, the State Hospital for Disabled Miners and the capitol buildings and grounds. It was an emergency measure, with an effective date of March 21, In , the legislature appointed a joint study committee to review juvenile corrections in Arizona.
The joint study committee appointed a professional advisory committee to conduct a full review of all correctional facilities in Arizona. The advisory committee found numerous problems with duplication and overlap among governmental units at all levels of the state and local corrections systems. The advisory committee recommended establishing a unified corrections system with a uniform set of standards and goals, dedicated accounting staff, and a centralized parole system. The joint study committee concurred with the findings and drafted a bill to create the state Department of Corrections, and transfer to the new department all property and personnel under the Superintendent of the State Prison and the Board of Directors of State Institutions for Juveniles.
This law also repealed those sections from Title 31, Chapter 2, Articles 4 through 9. Chapter 40 authorized the Director to establish and operate community correctional centers, which were meant to provide housing, supervision, and counseling for parolees and inmates allowed to participate in work and educational programs. Chapter enabled the Director to authorize performance of medical, surgical, or dental services deemed medically necessary by the attending physician or dentist for any person under care of the department but not employees when a spouse, adult next of kin, or legal guardian was not available.

Laws , Chapter was a comprehensive measure addressing a number of corrections issues, including juveniles, probation and parole, prisoner labor and compensation, members of the Board of Pardons and Parole, and duties of the Director of the Department.
The law also created the Corrections Industry Advisory Board, consisting of six members appointed by the Governor and two members appointed by the Legislature. This law made other technical corrections and conforming changes to the Department of Corrections and other statutes related to the disposition and commitment of juveniles. Laws , Chapter made numerous changes to state law on parole, work furlough, home arrest, earned release credits, and other early release programs, and made conforming changes to statutes governing the Department as part of revisions to the criminal code.
Laws , Chapter authorized the director to provide educational services and facilities to house minors who are committed to the Department for criminal offenses, to establish private detention facilities for persons in temporary custody, and to establish private incarceration facilities for minimum to medium security level offenders. The measure also created the Joint Select Committee on Corrections to review the construction schedule of prisons and monitor the growth or decline of the inmate population in Arizona.
An annual report is due by October 15 each year. Laws , Chapter outlined requirements for private prisons to operate in the state. A private prison is primarily directed at housing adult prisoners sentenced to incarceration by a court from another state. Laws , Chapter 33 established the Department of Corrections Building Renewal Fund and allowed monies in the fund to be used to repair buildings and infrastructure.
Funds are derived from various non-general fund sources including prisoner spendable accounts, the inmate store, and the ACI revolving fund. Monies may not be used for new buildings, landscaping or demolition, although a portion of the monies may be used for routine preventative maintenance. Current authority can be found at A. CORP provides uniform retirement and disability benefits for specifically designated positions listed in statute, which includes State of Arizona corrections officers and employees as well as county, city or town detention officers, dispatchers and probation officers A.
Although the Board is not responsible for the actions or omissions of the local boards, it has the authority to seek review or rehearing in order to protect the System as a whole. The Board of Trustees is made up of seven members, appointed by the Governor to five-year terms.
Statute requires each employer group participating in CORP to establish a local board and assigns numerous responsibilities to each board. Each local board determines eligibility for membership, retirement benefits based on years of service, and survivor benefits. Retirement began at age 62 requiring a minimum 10 years of service or at age 55 with a minimum 25 years of service.
Benefits included pensions for accidental disability and survivor benefits. Both the retirement age and the pension formula have been modified in the years since CORP was created. Initially, only counties could enter into a joinder agreement; in order to do so they were required to end any existing corrections officer retirement plan and submit to an actuarial review to determine the amount of money they needed to add to the fund.
The measure also established requirements for serving on the local board; outlined board powers and duties; allowed up to four years of military service to be converted to service credits; provided benefit increases for members; and established a death benefit for those not yet eligible for a pension. Laws , Chapter allowed municipalities to join CORP and required local boards to be established. The measure also allowed a municipality to enter into a joinder agreement in order to bring its detention officers into the plan.
Laws , Chapter allowed a local board to specify that a position was designated as eligible for CORP if an employee with at least five years service filled the position. Laws , Chapter 87 allowed pensions to be diverted to an alternate payee if compelled by a domestic relations order. The Board of Trustees also retained the power to call for a rehearing of a local board decision.

Laws , Chapter addressed cotton pest abatement and reimbursement of associated costs from the Council or the responsible cotton producer. Laws , Chapter 49 authorized establishment of a three-year, pink bollworm eradication program if approved by cotton producers.
A fee based on the number of acres of cotton planted funded the eradication program. The fee did not apply to acres planted with Bt cotton, which is a variety of cotton developed to control bollworms and other insect pests that attack cotton.
