Page 44, line 14, strike "$445,186,751" and insert "$444,066,521".
Page 44, line 14, strike "$449,649,742" and insert "$448,425,314".
Page 45, line 49, strike "the operational" and insert, "150 percent of operational".

(This amendment achieves savings by realizing that, while operational capacity is defined by the Department of Corrections on the basis of one offender per cell, local and regional jails have operationally double-bunked at least 50 percent of the capacity. In contrast to the one offender, one cell methodology used for jails, prisons are rated double-bunked by definition. Recognizing the actual practice in local and regional jails reduces the total number of overcrowding positions from 48 to 13.)
