Page 42, line 39, strike "$412,516,288" and insert "$413,977,469".
Page 46, after line 35, insert:
"M.  Out of the amounts appropriated for Financial Assistance for Regional Jail Operations, $1,461,181 the first year from the general fund is provided to the Western Virginia Regional Jail Authority to provide funding for the operations of this facility, which is expected to begin housing prisoners on March 9, 2009."

(This amendment provides funding for the Western Virginia Regional Jail to begin housing prisoners on March 9, 2009, as originally scheduled. The Governor's introduced budget assumed all local and regional jail projects would experience at least three months of construction delays. This facility, however, is currently expected to begin accepting prisoners as scheduled in March 2009.)
