Compensation Board

Page 44, strike lines 38-50 and insert :
"J.1.a. The Compensation Board shall recover and deposit into the general fund 50 percent of the federal share of the state-funded personnel costs based on the percentage of contract federal prisoners to total prisoners held in a local or regional jail.  The Compensation Board shall compute the federal share using prisoner population information and state-funded personnel costs.  State-funded personnel costs shall be based on the May 1 budgeted amounts and any amendments thereto for salaries and fringe benefit costs of corrections officers, medical treatment, classification, cooks, and administrative positions approved by the Compensation Board for the facility.  The Compensation Board shall deduct the federal share from the facility's next quarterly per diem payment for state and local inmates.  Upon certification by the Sheriff or Superintendent that the federal government has paid for the construction of bed space in the facility, or provided a grant for a portion of the capital cost, the Compensation Board shall reduce the federal and total prisoner population by the federal prisoners corresponding to the facility capacity, as defined by the Department of Corrections, funded by the federal government.  The provisions of this paragraph shall not apply to any local or regional jail where the cumulative federal share of the capital cost exceeds the Commonwealth's cumulative capital contribution.
b.  It is anticipated that the Compensation Board shall recover $2,938,980 in each year.
c.  The Compensation Board may recover state-funded personnel costs using a method different from that set forth in paragraph J.1.a., if the local sheriff or regional jail administrator submits a cost allocation report justifying such alternative method to the Auditor of Public Accounts, and such report is reviewed and approved by the Auditor of Public Accounts."
