(This amendment replaces general funds with nongeneral funds to open and operate Wallens Ridge State Prison. This amendment also restores ten (10.00 FTE) positions for enhanced perimeter and K-9 security. This facility will house inmates from jurisdictions outside Virginia as part of the Commonwealth's contract prison bed program. Sufficient space to house the current forecast of state responsible offenders is already available in other state and local facilities through the 1998-2000 biennium, making this facility available for contract prisoners. Proceeds from the contract prison bed program will provide the special fund revenues to support this appropriation. A companion amendment to §4-2.01 of this act establishes a Contract Prisoners Special Revenue Fund for this purpose.)
