(This amendment provides positions in the position count table for an additional 40 corrections officers and 7 medical/treatment positions in fiscal year 2022, along with the technical conversion of 13 temporary corrections officer positions to permanent for the Piedmont Regional Jail, to staff a jail bed capacity of 93 not previously staffed by the Compensation Board, as the previous expansion projects were not approved through the former moratorium exception process, but the increased bed capacity has now been approved by the Board of Corrections. A companion amendment to Item 68 provides funding to support the allocation of these positions. A companion amendment to Item 69 reduces funding currently provided for a partial exemption from the federal inmate cost recovery for which the Piedmont Regional Jail will no longer be eligible once full staffing for existing jail bed capacity is provided.)
