CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A state board has authorized using contingency funds to pay for unexpected inmate medical costs.

The Department of Corrections requested $2.2 million in funding, which was approved Tuesday by the state Board of Examiners.

Prison officials say several inmates have had catastrophic medical cases over the last two years that were not anticipated in the budget approved by lawmakers in 2013.

The funding request now goes to the Legislature's Interim Finance Committee.
