"M.  Out of the amounts appropriated for this item, $3,814,882 the second year from the general fund is provided for the estimated net increase in the operating costs of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment of House Bill 2279.  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 151 state correctional beds that could be needed if House Bill 2279, which increases the penalties associated taking indecent liberties with children, was adopted. This funding is required to address the Woodrum impacts of the bill.)
