Page 336, after line 13, insert:
"D.  Notwithstanding the provisions of § 53.1-81, Code of Virginia, the Board of Corrections may approve or commit additional funds for one-half the cost of construction, enlargement, or renovation of a local jail facility when such locality is also a member of a regional jail authority and all contiguous localities are each members of separate regional jail entities."

(This amendment would authorize the Board of Corrections to approve state reimbursement of single jurisdiction jail construction projects meeting certain criteria at the rate for regional jails which is 50 percent of approved costs.)
