"M.  Included in this appropriation is $1,194,404 the second year from the general fund for the estimated net increase in the operating costs of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment of House Bill 2749 of the 2007 Session of the General Assembly.  This amount shall be paid into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund, established in accordance with § 30-19.1:4, Code of Virginia."

(This amendment provides funding in the second year from the general fund for the additional state correctional beds associated with House Bill 2749, which requires the registration of e-mail addresses, screen names, and other internet log-ins used by sex offenders and increases the penalties associated with the production, publication, sale, possession with the intent to distribute, or financing of child pornography. This funding is required to address the Woodrum impacts of the bill.)
