(This amendment reduces funding currently provided for a partial exception from the federal inmate cost recovery for which the Piedmont Regional Jail will no longer be eligible once full staffing for existing jail bed capacity is provide. A companion amendment to Item 69 provides funding for an additional 44 positions in fiscal year 2017 for the Piedmont Regional Jail to staff a jail bed capacity of 171 previously staffed by the Compensation Board. These prior expansion projects were not approved through the former moratorium exception process, but the increased bed capacity has recently been approved by the Board of Corrections. A companion amendment to Item 76 provides respective additional positions to the position count, along with the technical conversion of 13 temporary positions to permanent.)
