"The Board of Corrections may grant an exemption for the purposes as outlined in Title 53.1, Chapter 3 and § 53.1-21, Code of Virginia, for the following project:
Piedmont Regional Jail."

(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 expansion of the Piedmont Regional Jail, because the current facility was operating at 119 percent over capacity during the previous two fiscal years. 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 Piedmont Regional Jail.)
