Page 320, line 15, before "To", insert "A.".
Page 320, after line 17, insert:
"B.  The Governor may authorize or direct the transfer of prisoner labor, or of farm commodities produced, at any state agency to any other state agency.  It is further provided that unit prices of foodstuffs or other commodities produced on farms shall be fixed on a basis no more frequently than semiannually by the Director, Department of Corrections.  These unit prices shall be the basis for charging the value of foods produced by the farms and consumed by the producing agencies or sold to other state agencies of the Commonwealth under the provisions of § 2.2-1116, Code of Virginia."

(This amendment transfers language included in Part 4 of this Act to this Item. Placing the language within the appropriation for the Department of Corrections makes this policy more accessible to other state agencies and to the public. A companion amendment deletes the language from General Provisions.)
