(This amendment provides the "Woodrum" appropriation for House Bill 546, which defines as a predicate criminal gang crime the detaining of a person for the purpose of prostitution or the receipt of earnings from any person engaged in prostitution. State law requires that any legislation that would result in an increase in the prison population over the succeeding six years from its enactment be accompanied by an appropriation that would cover the increased prison operating costs in one year resulting from the additional inmates. (This is often referred to as the "Woodrum amendment".))
