(This amendment provides $9,266,133 the first year and $9,361,211 the second year from the general fund to increase the per diem for every state-responsible inmate housed at a local or regional jail by $4/day. A state-responsible inmate is defined as a person convicted of one or more felony offenses for which the sum of consecutive sentences is more than one year. At present, the state provides local and regional jails with a stipend of $12 per inmate day for each state-responsible inmate.)
