Page 397, line 12, strike "$235,090,748" and insert "$232,782,583".

Page 397, after line 22, insert:

"A.1. Out of this appropriation, $3,646,925 the first year and $5,935,253 the second year from the general fund is provided for the Department of Corrections to partner with the University of Virginia Health System and the Virginia Commonwealth University Health System on pilot projects to provide Hepatitis C treatment, orthopedic services, and expanded access to 340B medications for inmates.

2. The department shall continue the workgroup required in Item 390, paragraphs Q and R, Chapter 854, 2019 Acts of Assembly.  The purpose of the continued workgroup shall be to identify implementation costs and timelines and provide additional details on the planned pilot programs. The department shall report on the status and the progress of the pilot projects to the Chairs of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by October 15, 2020."


(This amendment removes $2.3 million the first year from the general fund for the Department of Corrections to partner with university health systems on pilot projects to improve healthcare for inmates. The reduction is based on deferring the pilot project with the UVA Health System for six months in order to allow time for more development and cost estimates of the project.)
