A billion more dollars are needed to keep the state’s prison system up and running for the rest of the fiscal year. 
 
That’s the take from the Department of Corrections and it will require lawmakers to pass a supplemental spending bill to get it done. 
 
The trouble comes from “unappropriated liabilities” from last year when the state was operating without a budget.
