"5. Culpeper County, in order to proceed in planning for a new local jail facility estimated at 150 beds.  Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 53.1-82.3, Code of Virginia, Culpeper County may submit the required community-based corrections plan, facility specifications, and expected financing costs to the Department of Corrections and State Board of Corrections for review prior to March 1, 2006.  Furthermore, the Governor may include a recommendation for funding such project for consideration by the General Assembly at its 2007 session."

(This amendment grants an exception to the moratorium on approval by the State Board of Corrections of requests for state reimbursement of the capital cost for local and regional jails. Accordingly, this amendment permits the Board of Corrections to consider for approval the request for Culpeper County to proceed with planning for a new local jail. The amendment also adjusts the deadline for submission of the required plan for this project to March 1, 2006.)
