Page 349, line 38, strike "$85,531,132" and insert "$84,181,132".
Page 349, line 38, strike "$86,079,815" and insert "$85,379,815".
Page 350, following line 15, insert:
"The Department of Juvenile Justice shall provide a report on plans for utilization of the state juvenile correctional centers, including, but not limited to, alternative programs for housing juvenile offenders in local or regional detention centers on a contractual basis.  Copies of the report shall be provided to the Secretary of Public Safety and the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by September 15, 2006."

(This amendment removes $1,350,000 the first year and $700,000 the second year from the general fund from the budget as introduced, by delaying the opening of the fourth housing unit at Culpeper Juvenile Correctional Center for six months and by maintaining the current population at Hanover Juvenile Correctional Center when the newly-renovated housing units are opened. This amendment also directs the Department of Juvenile Justice to provide a report on facility utilization. A companion amendment to Item 404 redirects a portion of the savings from this amendment to mental health services and reentry programs for juvenile offenders.)
