Page 478, line 25, after "$500.", insert:

"The department shall amend its contract with the vendor that operates the Lawrenceville Correctional Center to require that this funding is provided as a bonus  for correctional officers and require an accounting of the funding to the department. The department shall report on the use of this funding, including the number of correctional officers provided a bonus and, if applicable, any balances remaining to the Chairs of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance and Appropriations Committees by June 30, 2021."


(This amendment requires the Department of Corrections to ensure that the funding included in the introduced budget provides a $500 bonus for each correctional officer at Lawrenceville Correctional Center, employed by a private contractor that operates the facility, and is expended only for such purpose.)
