"Notwithstanding §4-7.01b, should an increase in the position level number for the Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute be required due to agreement, litigation, or settlement with the United States Department of Justice, or in the alternative, in order to avoid such litigation, settlement or agreement, the Governor shall have the authority to make such increase.  Any increase made under this provision shall be reported in writing to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations Committee and the Senate Finance Committee within ten days of such approval."

(This amendment states the Governor must approve any agreement, informal or otherwise, reached with the Department of Justice. It deletes a requirement that the increase be reported to the Governor, the Department of Planning and Budget, and the Department of Personnel and Training.)
