Page 55, line 39, strike "$53,633,322" and insert "$54,133,322".
Page 56, line 17, after "Virginia." insert:
"Also included in this appropriation is $500,000 the second year from the general fund to provide for HIV medications for inmates housed in local and regional jails."

(This amendment provides funding for HIV medications for inmates in local and regional jails. Jails are currently using local funds to cover costs of these drugs. It is important to continue HIV drug regimen while in jail because persons incarcerated are returned to the community once their sentences are completed. This amendment would provide assistance to local jails who spend more than $25,000 annually on HIV medications.)
