Page 313, after line 41, insert:
"3.  If the Department of Corrections contracts with other governmental entities to house more than 1,577 prisoners from those jurisdictions, the Director of the Department of Planning and Budget shall transfer sufficient general fund appropriation from the Department of Corrections to the Compensation Board to reimburse local jails, in accordance with the provisions of Item 67, for the costs of housing additional state responsible inmates in jails as a result of the additional inmates from other jurisdictions in state prisons."

(This amendment provides for the Department of Corrections to cover the costs of additional per diem payments to jails caused by having to leave state responsible inmates in local jails in order to make room for additional out-of-state inmates in state prisons.)
