(This amendment provides $600,000 the first year and $1,000,000 the second year from the general fund and 15 psychologist positions each year to serve adult insititutions, community corrections, and the sexually violent predator program. The 2002 General Assembly eliminated 30 psychologist positions, and restored 15 the following year. This amendment restores 13 of the remaining 15 psychologists, and provides two psychologists for the sexually violent predator program, for a total of 15. These positions may be assigned as needed at the discretion of the Department of Corrections.)
