The bill, referred to as SB210, aims to authorize the state of Alabama to establish concurrent jurisdiction with the United States over criminal offenses committed by juveniles on military installations within the state. The bill sets forth conditions under which the state may exercise this jurisdiction: first, the United States Attorney or the applicable United States District Court must waive exclusive federal jurisdiction, and second, the offense committed by the juvenile must also be considered a crime under state law.

The bill further specifies that once concurrent jurisdiction is established, the juvenile court in Alabama will have exclusive original jurisdiction over cases involving juveniles who are alleged to be delinquent due to acts committed within the boundaries of a military installation that are crimes under state law. The bill is scheduled to become effective on October 1, 2024. There are no insertions or deletions marked in the provided text, as it appears to be a new enactment rather than an amendment to existing law.
