.Page 429, after line 14, insert:
"H.  Notwithstanding the provisions of § 19.2-48.1, the Board of Corrections shall promulgate standards to reimburse local governments for the provision of magistrate quarters in local and regional jail facilities in the same manner as other eligible costs authorized by the Board of Corrections.  The new standard shall be implemented by July 1, 2010.  The new language shall be retroactive to all local and regional jail projects that were completed on and after July 1, 2008."

(This amendment requires the Board of Corrections to adopt regulatory changes requiring the Commonwealth to pay local governments for a portion of the costs of magistrate offices located in local and regional jails. The payment of these additional costs would be based upon the Commonwealth's reimbursement for the local or regional jail's construction costs. The language further states that this required regulatory change is to be retroactive to jail projects constructed since July 1, 2008.)
