(This amendment provides an appropriation to the Corrections Special Reserve Fund to reflect the estimated impact on utilization of beds in the Commonwealth’s Adult Correctional Centers resulting in changes in criminal sentencing pursuant to a House Bill to be filed, which would expand the list of sex offenses resulting in a prohibition of certain offenders from being within a certain proximity to children to include any offenses similar to the current law of the Commonwealth made under the laws of any foreign country or its political subdivisions, any Native American tribe recognized by federal law, or the United States or any political subdivision thereof.)
