Compensation Board FY2017 $11,300,000 FY2018 $0 GF

Page 45, line 51, strike "$50,115,331" and insert "$61,415,331".


(This amendment provides $11.3 million in the first year from the general fund for jail per diems for offenders housed in local and regional jails. Senate Bill 29 includes $11.3 million in FY 2016 to cover the cost of per diems in FY 2016. However, the amounts recommended for reimbursements in FY 2017 and FY 2018 reflect the appropriations made by the General Assembly in the 2015 Session. Therefore, the amounts included in Senate Bill 30 for FY 2017 are at least $11.3 million below the amount needed to cover jail per diems in the first year.)
