Page 55, line 48, strike "$53,637,055" and insert "$55,519,801".

Page 58, after line 49, insert:

"L. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph H. of Item 73 of this act, included in this appropriation is $1,882,746 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 $1,882,746 in the second year from the general fund for staffing for the Piedmont Regional Jail to reflect an increased jail bed capacity of 93 approved by the Board of Corrections. Companion amendments reflect the increased staffing numbers as well as a reduction in funding due to the facility no longer qualifying for federal inmate cost recovery exemption due to the increased staffing level.)
