Craigsville Wastewater Treatment Plant (language only)

Item 455.4 #3h

Item 455.4 #3h

General Conditions
Central Appropriations

Page 217, after line 8, insert:
The Director, Department of Planning and Budget, shall unallot and revert to the general fund from the Department of Corrections an amount equal to $1,000,000, representing the unspent appropriation from paragraph K.1. of Item 387 of Chapter 847 of the Acts of Assembly of 2007."

(This amendment captures $1,000,000 in unspent appropriations for the Commonwealth's share of the costs of constructing a wastewater treatment plant for the Town of Craigsville. No portion of this appropriation has been spent because the Department of Corrections and the Town of Craigsville have not finalized a contract for the Augusta Correctional Center's future usage of the facility. The general fund appropriation reverted to the general fund will be replaced with bond proceeds contained in House Bill 30. This is one of two amendments capturing the general fund proceeds from this project. Capturing these general fund appropriations was a recommendation contained in the Governor's budget reduction plan issued February 12, 2008.)
