(This amendment provides language that make technical changes to the review process for capital projects for local and regional jails. Language first adopted in Chapter 2, 2022 Special Session I, incorporated the Department of General Services (DGS) into the review process. This amendment more closely aligns required documentation for DGS with the information provided to the Board of Local and Regional Jails in order to streamline the review process.)
