(This amendment provides $50,000 from the general fund in fiscal year 2024 to the Corrections Special Reserve Fund to reflect the indeterminate prison bed space impact of enacting legislation to be considered by the 2023 Session of the General Assembly, which would establish penalties related to improperly storing a firearm in a residence when a minor under the age of 18 years of age is present. This amendment is a placeholder until the bill text and fiscal impact statement for the bill are produced.)
