Page 345, after line 17, insert:

"N. Out of this appropriation, the Department of Corrections shall reserve up to $53,000,000 in each year from its Special Revenue Fund to reimburse local and regional jails for the housing of state responsible inmates in those facilities, pursuant to §53.1-20.1 of the Code of Virginia."


(This amendment would add new language providing that the Department of Corrections utilize existing appropriations to compensate localities that operate regional jails and house state inmates for the actual costs of incarceration of those inmates.)
