(This amendment provides $2.0 million each year from the general fund to the Department of Corrections for salary increases for correctional officers and non-security staff at the Lawrenceville Correctional Center, which is managed by a third-party vendor. The amendment aligns with the minimum salary for correctional officers and the 5.0 percent increase each year for state employees included in the introduced budget.)
