Page 42, line 39, strike "$412,516,288" and insert "$413,034,393".
Page 42, line 39, strike "$428,128,258" and insert "$428,694,547".
Page 46, after line 35, insert:
"M.  Notwithstanding the provisions of Item 76, paragraph F., when additional jail overcrowding deputy positions are allocated to meet the requirements of one additional jail deputy for every five average annual daily prisoners above operational capacity as defined in paragraph E. of this item, the Compensation Board shall allocate such positions upon the request of the sheriff or regional jail superintendent in order of percent of average annual daily prisoners above operational capacity."

(This amendment provides funding for the additional costs of 16 deputy sheriffs and regional jail officers to meet the Appropriation Act requirement of one additional correctional officer in a jail for every five inmates housed above its operational capacity. The proposed language provides that the positions be allocated to meet the full needs of the most overcrowded jail facilities -- notably, Montgomery County and Page County. A companion amendment to Item 76 provides the positions in the position count needed to provide 16 positions for the three offices affected by this amendment.)
