(This amendment removes funds for compensating localities pursuant to the provisions of § 53.1-20.1, Code of Virginia, which requires the Department of Corrections to compensate localities in the event the Department is unable to remove state-responsible inmates within certain time frames as established in the Code. The Department has been removing state-responsible inmates from local and regional jails in the manner required by the Code and this is expected to continue in fiscal year 1998. A companion amendment to Item 78 appropriates the fiscal year 1998 amount of these funds to expand the jail contracting program. The fiscal year 1997 amount is reverted to the general fund.)
