Compensation Board

Page 63, line 47, after "J." strike the remainder of the line and insert:
"Effective July 1, 1998, the Compensation Board shall recover and deposit to the general fund the total additional cost to the Commonwealth, if any, for holding federal prisoners in a local or regional jail.  The Compensation Board shall make the necessary calculations and analysis to identify such costs on a facility by facility basis.  The Compensation Board shall then deduct such amount from the facility's next quarterly per diem payment which is due them for the care and custody of state and local inmates."
Page 63, strike lines 48 through 60.
Page 64, strike lines 1 through 41.

(This amendment simplifies the state recovery process for local and regional jails holding federal prisoners.)
