(This amendment provides $7,154,000 the first year and $9,223,200 the second year from the general fund for the Jail Contracting program operated by the Department of Corrections. With these funds, the Department of Corrections will be able to maintain a total of approximately 1,000 state responsible offenders in jail contract beds at a rate of $28 per diem, in addition to other amounts provided by the Compensation Board. The budget, as introduced, only included funds for 300 contract beds the first year and 100 the second year. This amendment is related to a series of amendments in the Department of Corrections which adjusts the rate at which new state prison bed capacity is brought on line.)
