(This amendment modifies new language regarding the privatization of correctional education services. It directs the Department of Correctional Education, rather than the Department of Planning and Budget, to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of any privatization proposal and further requires approval of the General Assembly prior to implementation of any such proposal. The amendment also clarifies that these requirements apply only to correctional education services in facilities operated by the Department of Corrections and the Department of Juvenile Justice.)
