(This amendment reduces the total deposit into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund by $322,518 from the general fund in the first year. With this amendment, the total deposit is reduced from $889,181 in the budget as introduced, to $566,663. This deposit, as adjusted, is associated with legislation proposed by the House of Delegates 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 384 utilizes these funds to offset correctional facility operating costs.)
