Authority: § 30-19.1:4, Code of Virginia.
A. From the appropriation in this Item, $10,597,657 in the second  year from the general fund is provided for the estimated increase in the operating costs of adult correctional facilities resulting from enactment, in the 2003 Session of the General Assembly, of Senate Bill 1118.
B. The funds in this item shall be paid into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund, established in accordance with § 30-19.1:4  of the Code of Virginia.

(This amendment provides the required deposit into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund pursuant to § 30-19.1:4 of the Code of Virginia, based on the corrections offender population impact of Senate Bill 1153, relating to the penalty for failure to pay court-ordered child support. The impact analysis for this proposed legislation indicates that an additional 476 beds in state adult correctional facilities, resulting in an annual operating cost of $10,597,657. This is the amount which is required to be deposited into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund. However, the impact analysis also suggests this amount would be offset by a savings to the Commonwealth of $1,249,693 in reduced jail costs. Therefore, the net state cost would be $9,347,964 by FY 2008.)
