(This amendment provides the "Woodrum" appropriation for House Bill 963, which would impose a penalty of imprisonment for five to 20 years for the transmission of child pornography by any individual for the purpose of gaining entry into a group of people trading or sharing child pornography to exchange child pornography for money or anything of value. 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".))
