WTRJ Federal Recovery Request for Partial Exemption (language only)

Item 69 #1s

Item 69 #1s

Compensation Board


Page 61, line 19, after "7." insert "a."

Page 61, after line 33, insert "b. The Western Tidewater Regional Jail (WTRJ), shall retain an exemption from the recovery made by the Commonwealth for the state-funded cost of housing federal inmates, inmates of the District of Columbia, and contract inmates from other states for the first 76 housed inmates, and for every housed inmate above 130."


(This amendment adds language clarifying that the Western Tidewater Regional Jail (WTRJ) shall retain the existing exemption for the first 76 federal inmates and then the Commonwealth will retain the federal per diem for federal inmates starting at 77 through 130. All federal per diem would revert back to WTRJ for all federal inmates above 130.)
