(This amendment removes language from the existing budget that exempts the Department of Corrections from making payments service charges levied in lieu of taxes by any locality in the Commonwealth. The Department was last required to make these payments in fiscal year 2009. The amendment also provides $2.0 million from the general fund in the second year as a preliminary estimate of the service charges the Department would be required to pay localities should the exemption from payment in lieu of taxes be eliminated, as the Department's base appropriation does not include sufficient resources to accommodate these payments.)
