Page 429, after line 14, insert:
"H.  In order to equitably reimburse local governments for the costs of managing local and regional jail projects, the Board of Corrections shall amend Standard 2.9.K.3.e of the Standards for Planning, Design, Construction, and Reimbursement of Local Correctional Facilities to provide for the reimbursement of the state share of the salaries and fringe benefit costs of local government employees whose sole responsibility is the oversight or management of capital construction projects by June 30, 2010.  Such costs shall be reimbursable in the same manner as other eligible costs authorized by the Board of Corrections for such local or regional jail project.  The amended language shall be retroactive to all local and regional jail projects that were completed on or after July 1, 2008."

(This amendment requires the Board of Corrections to adopt regulatory changes requiring the Commonwealth to pay for portions of local government employee salaries and fringe benefits if those employees jobs involve oversight or management of capital outlay projects. The portion of these local employee salary and fringe benefits would equal the percentage reimbursement associated with the local or regional jail project. The language further states that this required regulatory change is to be retroactive to jail projects constructed since July 1, 2008.)
