any other provision of law, in any case where a person has been
convicted of a felony and a sentence has been pronounced which requires

from the appropriate local official that he or she is prepared to
transport such person to the facility designated by the department,
provided that there has been compliance with subdivision (a) of section

is not in need of immediate medical care requiring the availability of a
hospital or infirmary bed, then the expense of maintaining such person
