"L. Notwithstanding the provisions of Item 73, Paragraph H of this Act, included in the appropriation for this item is $1,356,387 the first year and $1,553,278 the second year from the general fund to support staffing costs associated with an increase in the rated operating capacity resulting from former expansions at the Piedmont Regional Jail not previously provided for in base staffing and related funding by the Compensation Board."


(This amendment provides $1,356,387 the first year and $1,553,278 the second year from general funds for the Commonwealth's share of staffing costs for an existing 171 bed expansion of Piedmont Regional Jail that was not previously included in the Compensation's Board calculation for base staffing and operating support for the facility. A companion amendment to Item 67 of this Act reduces funding currently provided for a partial exemption from the federal inmate cost recovery for which the Piedmont Regional Jail will longer be eligible. An additional companion amendment to Item 73 of this Act provides additional position in the position count to reflect the new base staffing levels included in the Compensation Board's Formula.)
