Page 395, strike lines 26 through 31 and insert:
"F.  All residential staff housing properties owned by the Commonwealth and in the possession of the Department of Corrections are authorized to be sold as surplus property pursuant to § 2.2-1156, Code of Virginia.  Notwithstanding the provisions of § 2.2-1156 D, Code of Virginia, all net proceeds from the sale of such property after provision is made for any bonds outstanding on such property, as appropriate, estimated at $1,910,000, shall be deposited into the general fund.  Prior to the sale of these properties the Department  of General Services shall obtain an appraisal of the fair market value of such properties.  Current employees of the Department of Corrections who are currently residing in such residential staff housing shall be granted the first right of refusal to purchase these residences at fair market value."

(This amendment clarifies the language directing the sale of residences used by the Department of Corrections to house staff. In addition, the amount projected to be deposited into the general fund is reduced to account for any bonds outstanding on those properties purchased with revenues from VPBA bonds.)
