(This amendment provides $15.5 million GF the second year to increase the per diem payments to local and regional jails for housing local responsible inmates with state charges from the current rate of $4 per day to $8 per day, which were the rates prior to being reduced in FY 2011. This funding reflects the eight-month cost to align with Compensation Board payment schedules.)
