Page 313, line 21, after "fully exhausted.", insert:
"The Board of Corrections may grant an exception for the purposes outlined in this paragraph (Item 448.A.5) for the following project:
Loudoun County Adult Detention Center."

(This amendment provides an exception to the moratorium on approval by the Board of Corrections of state reimbursement for local or regional jail construction projects. This exception is granted for the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center, in view of Loudoun County's need to expand its current jail capacity from 118 to 232 beds with a minimal increase in staffing, and the County's efforts to join in a regional partnership, which have been unsuccessful. The state reimbursement rate for local jail construction projects is up to 25 percent of project costs, subject to approval of the Board of Corrections, and subject to the approval of a staffing plan by the Compensation Board.)
