Compensation Board FY2017 $0 FY2018 ($272,967) GF

Page 52, line 5, strike "$61,348,245" and insert "$61,075,278".

Page 52, line 9, strike "$35,173,614" and insert "$34,900,647".


(This amendment reduces funding currently provided for a partial exemption 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. A companion amendment to Item 69 provides the funding for an additional 44 positions in FY18 for the Piedmont Regional Jail, to staff a jail bed capacity of 171 not previously staffed by the Compensation Board, as the previous 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 the respective additional positions in the position count, along with the technical conversion of 13 temporary positions to permanent positions.)
