The House-Senate conference report for the Department of Corrections budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, 2012. This would appropriate $2.000 billion in gross spending, compared to $1.936 billion, which was the FY 2011-2012 amount enrolled in 2011. Of this, just $8.7 million is federal money, and the rest is from state taxes and fees. A Senate-passed plan to save money by outsourcing the management of one prison was not agreed to by the House. Note: House Bill 5365
contains an identical version of this conference report.
