(This amendment provides $2.0 million from the unappropriated general fund balance for the support of local community corrections agencies. Currently, there are 41 local community corrections agencies that have been initiated pursuant to the Comprehensive Community Corrections Act for Local Responsible Offenders or the Pretrial Services Act. These programs perform similar functions to state probation and parole offices. Although supported by annual grants from the Commonwealth, those grants have not kept up with the programs' caseload growth or increases in health insurance and VRS premiums.)
