(This amendment adjusts the federal cost recovery process, to provide an exemption for all of the additional bed space built to house federal inmates at Western Tidewater Regional Jail. Currently, a partial exemption of 76 federal beds is provided. However, the funds provided by the federal government and the localities built an additional housing unit in 1999 which has 180 beds. The Compensation Board has not provided staffing for this increased capacity, nor did the Commonwealth contribute the construction cost.)
