"Piedmont Regional Jail"

(This amendment provides an exception to the moratorium on approval by the Board of Corrections of state reimbursement for the state share of the capital cost of local or regional jail projects. This exception is granted to the Piedmont Regional Jail, based on the fact that the average daily population of this facility exceeded its rated capacity by more than 50 percent during fiscal year 2000. The state reimbursement rate for regional jail capital outlay projects is up to 50 percent of project costs, subject to approval of the Board of Corrections. Approval of this project by the Board of Corrections shall also be conditioned upon the prior approval by the Compensation Board of a facility staffing plan for the Piedmont Regional Jail.)
