Page 391, after line 44, insert:
"G. The Department of Corrections may review the community-based plan, facility specifications, and the expected financing costs, submitted to the Department of Corrections, prior to March 1, 2005, by the Counties of Franklin and Montgomery.  Furthermore, the Counties of Franklin and Montgomery may join, either jointly or separately, Roanoke County and the City of Salem in a regional jail project.  The Governor may include a recommendation for funding such project for consideration by the General Assembly at its 2006 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 a request for Franklin County and Montgomery County to join Roanoke County and the City of Salem in a regional jail project.)
