"Y. Included in the appropriation for this item is $50,000 the second year from the general fund for the estimated net increase in the operating cost of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment of sentencing legislation as listed below. This amount shall be paid into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund, established pursuant to § 30-19.1:4, Code of Virginia.

1. House Bill 2133 -- $50,000."


(This amendment provides $50,000 the second year for a Corrections Special Reserve Fund deposit to reflect the indeterminate bedspace impact of House Bill 2133, which would establish a process for victims of sex trafficking to petition the circuit court to have convictions of adjudications of delinquency for prostitution, solicitation of prostitution, and maintaining a bawdy place vacated so long as the conviction was a direct result of being sex trafficked. This is a placeholder amendment until a final fiscal impact statement for the bill is produced. This bill is a recommendation of the Virginia State Crime Commission. Corresponding placeholder amendments have been drafted to the Office of the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court and State Police Items.)
