(This amendment provides positions in the position count table for an additional 40 corrections officers and 4 medical/treatment professionals, along with the technical conversion of 13 temporary corrections officer positions to permanent for the Piedmont Regional Jail. 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 70 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 provided.)
