"2.  Botetourt and Craig Counties are hereby exempted from the provisions of paragraph C 1 in order to proceed in planning for a regional jail serving these two counties."

(This amendment provides an exception to the moratorium on approval by the Board of Corrections of reimbursement for the state share of local or regional jail capital outlay projects. This exception is granted for the proposed Botetourt County-Craig County Regional Jail, in view of the cooperative agreement in effect since 1976 between these two counties for housing prisoners, and the current need to comply with Board of Corrections standards and life safety code requirements. Approval of this project by the Board of Corrections shall be conditioned upon prior approval by the Compensation Board of a staffing plan for the regional jail serving these two jurisdictions.)
