(This amendment provides $10.6 million the second year from the general fund to increase per diem payments for local-responsible and state-responsible inmates held in local and regional jails. The amount reflects the 18.75% increase in the Consumer Price Index since the current rates were set by the 2010 Session of the General Assembly. Jails are expected to incur significant costs in compliance with new standards for behavioral health and medical care that are in the process of being adopted the Board of Local and Regional Jails at the direction of the 2019 Session of the General Assembly.)
