CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia's Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority has agreed to keep the per diem rate for inmates at $48.25 next year.

According to the state Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety, the authority board vote this week was unanimous.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that the rate has been the same since 2013 and is one of the lowest in the country.

According to state officials, West Virginia counties owe $13.4 million to the authority for housing inmates, and $5.7 million of that is more than 90 days overdue.
