"The General Assembly finds that a request-for-proposal having been issued and a prime vendor having been selected, the Department may not enter into any contract for the construction and/or operation of a 225-bed juvenile correctional center until the following"

(This amendment modifies language authorizing the Department of Juvenile Justice to enter into a contract for a private juvenile correctional center.

Based on the current juvenile correctional center population forecast, additional facilities will not be needed in the near term.)
