"C-66.20 The Governor shall allocate from the unexpended, unobligated balance available on June 30, 1997, an amount not to exceed $6,000,000, for the acquisition of equipment for the following projects:
Keen Mountain Prototype Correctional Facility #2 (Red Onion): $3,000,000
Keen Mountain Prototype Correctional Facility #4 (Sussex II): $3,000,000."

(This amendment eliminates language proposed in the budget, as introduced, which would have transferred bond authority from a detention center project (as authorized in Chapter 841, Acts of Assembly 1995) to a new project to purchase equipment for the Red Onion and Sussex II Correctional Centers. This amendment also provides that an amount not to exceed $6,000,000 from the unexpended, unobligated balances for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1997, be used for the acquisition of the necessary equipment.)
