"C-152.1 Jarratt Egg Building (16882)

(This amendment authorizes the Department of Corrections, subject to the approval of the Governor, to enter into a capital lease to acquire an abandoned egg processing facility in the Town of Jarratt for conversion into a refrigerated warehouse and distribution facility for use by the DOC agribusiness program. This step is necessary due to a rent increase at the existing distribution facility at Courtland which makes continued use of that facility too expensive.)
