(This amendment provides funds in the second year to allow the Compensation Board to continue funding sheriffs' departments for the operation of jails, where the average daily inmate populations in the jail total fewer than ten. A new funding mechanism had been authorized which would provide state funds for these operations at a rate of $22.00 or $28.00 per inmate day only. A companion amendment to Item 78 eliminates the language requirement.)
