Page 48, line 29, strike "$594,031,949" and insert "$595,824,488".

Page 66, after line 48, insert:

"V. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph H. of Item 79 of this Act, included in this appropriation is $1,577,542 in the first year and $1,792,539 in the second year from the general fund to support new staffing associated with an increase in the rated operating capacity resulting from former expansions at the Piedmont Regional Jail that were not previously provided base staffing and related funding by the Compensation Board."


(This amendment provides $1.6 million GF the first year and $1.8 million GF the second year for an additional 47 positions each year for the Piedmont Regional Jail for approved, increased bed capacity. A companion amendment to Item 73 reduces funding currently provided for a partial federal inmate cost recovery for which the jail will not be eligible once full staffing is established.)
