Compensation Board FY2009 $0 FY2010 ($256,000) GF

Page 52, line 39, strike "$74,191,798" and insert "$73,935,798".
Page 55, line 6, strike "personnel".
Page 55, after "Board.", insert:
"Beginning July 1, 2009, the Compensation Board shall determine, by individual jail, the amount to be recovered by the Commonwealth by multiplying the jail's current inmate days for this population by the proportion of the jail's per inmate day costs provided by the Commonwealth, excluding payments otherwise provided for in this item, as identified in the most recent Jail Cost Report prepared by the Compensation Board."

(This amendment expands the existing federal inmate cost recovery methodology to recoup the entire costs borne by the Commonwealth for the federal inmates housed in local and regional jails. The Commonwealth provides not only the salaries for the jail deputies and regional jail correctional officers, but also office and vehicle allowances, grants, construction reimbursements, and other support. This change will generate about $256,000 in additional federal inmate cost recoveries.)
