OPPOSED NO. MOTION AGREED TO.

Del. Vivian Watts (D-Annandale): THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER, HOUSE BILL 543 MAKES IT CLEAR THE SHERIFF OR ADMINISTRATOR OF A REGIONAL JAIL HAS CUSTODY OVER THE INMATE, IF THEY'RE HOLDING THE INMATE FOR ANOTHER JURISDICTION. THAT AROSE OUT OF A TIGHT DEFINITION OF A CODE WHICH INHIBITED A PERSON IN JAIL FROM RECEIVING APPROPRIATE MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT. THANK YOU.

[Unknown]: TURNING TO PAGE 24, HOUSE BILL 602 AND 410 MOVED TO REGULAR CALENDAR. ACCORDINGLY, HOUSE BILL 616 A
