(This amendment reduces the total deposit into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund by $387,895 from the general fund the second year. With this amendment, the total deposit is reduced from $1,924,661 in the budget as introduced, to $1,536,766. This deposit, as adjusted, is associated with legislation, as adopted by the 2013 General Assembly, to increase criminal penalties or create new criminal penalties, as required by § 30-19.1:4, Code of Virginia. These amounts are paid into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund to account for the expected number of additional beds in the Department of Corrections required to house additional offenders. A companion amendment to Item 388 utilizes these funds to support the early opening of the River North Correctional Center in Grayson County in October 2013.)
