Page 344, strike lines 34 through 40 and insert:
"1.  Senate Bill 1056 ($50,000)
2.  Senate Bill 1188 ($50,000)
3.  Senate Bills 1230 and 1231 ($50,000)".

(This amendment adjusts the language concerning the Corrections Special Reserve Fund. The introduced budget included $150,000 for the projected corrections bedspace impact of three proposed bills which required a deposit into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund, but these three bills were not adopted by the Senate. This language allocates the $150,000 which was included in the introduced budget to reflect the fiscal impact of Senate Bills 1056, 1188, 1230, and 1231, which were adopted by the Senate. Senate Bills 1230 and 1231 contain identical criminal penalties for the purchase of cigarettes using a forged business license, a business license obtained under false pretenses, or a forged or invalid Virginia sales and use tax exemption certificate obtained under false pretenses. For this reason, one deposit of $50,000 is made to account for the same change in criminal penalties for both Senate Bill 1230 and Senate Bill 1231. Accordingly, for each of the four bills this amendment provides the required deposit into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund.)
