Item 66 #2h

Compensation Board

Page 67, line 13, strike "10,056" and insert "10,209"

(This amendment provides 153 positions in the Compensation Board's position count for additional correctional officer positions in local and regional jails that are severely overcrowded, which are defined by the Compensation Board as facilities that have an average daily population over the past 12 months in excess of 100 percent above their rated capacity. The positions are needed to meet the standard for jail overcrowding of one officer for every five inmates above operational capacity. A companion amendment to Item 59 provides the funding for this amendment.)
