Page 505, after line 1, insert:

"X. The Board of Corrections shall review the approval process, mechanisms for funding, and the appropriate amount of funding related to the state's share of the cost of constructing, expanding, or renovating local or regional jail or confinement facilities that fall outside the traditional model of jail facilities normally considered for approval by the Board of Corrections. Specific emphasis for the review shall be placed on secure facilities that may house offenders who require addiction treatment and recovery services, and for whom a non-conventional, but sufficiently secure, alternative confinement facility would be most beneficial and cost-effective. The Board of Corrections shall submit a report on its findings to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees no later than December 1, 2019."


(This amendment provides for a review of alternatives to traditional jail facilities approved by the Board of Corrections.)
