(This amendment removes funding for equipment purchases at the new Red Onion, Sussex II, and Wallens Ridge prisons due to delays in opening Sussex II and Wallens Ridge and the availability of other funding for the Red Onion prison equipment. House Bill 1600 changes the opening dates of Sussex II from April 1998 to October 1998 and Wallens Ridge from July 1998 until October 1998. This change makes full funding for equipment at these facilities an issue for the 1998-2000 biennium budget. House Bill 2262 provides $6.0 million to fully fund equipment purchases at Red Onion and begin equipment purchases at the remaining facilities.)
