Page 283, following line 16, insert:
"E. The Board of Corrections is authorized to provide a waiver from the construction requirements of the "Standards for Planning, Design, Construction and Reimbursement of Local Correctional Facilities, and Minimum Standards for Local Jails and Lockups" to a locality proposing a jail enlargement project involving the use of a temporary structure for housing community custody inmates.  Such structure shall comply with all of the applicable provisions of the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code and the Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code for its designated use and occupancy.  Such waiver shall not relieve the locality of the requirement for submission and Board of Corrections approval of a community-based corrections plan and a construction planning study.  Any locality receiving such a waiver shall not be eligible for construction funding reimbursement  authorized pursuant to Sections 53.1-80 through 53.1-82, Code of Virginia, for such facility."

(This amendment authorizes the Board of Corrections to approve certain temporary jail facilities, for which no state reimbursement would be provided for the capital costs.)
