(This amendment transfers $663,757 from the general fund the second year from the Department of Juvenile Justice to the Department of Corrections to establish a separate housing unit and programs for inmates under 18 years of age who have been tried and convicted as adults and committed to the Department of Corrections. Separation of these younger offenders from the adult population is required to meet new federal regulations under the Prison Rape Elimination Act. A companion amendment to Item 388 adds these funds to the Department of Corrections.)
