(This amendment provides language that specifically identifies judicial circuits that were selected and that received federal grants to establish drug court programs. The federal grants were awarded directly to these localities and the current language restricts the ability for the matching State funds to be used for the intended purpose. The Department of Criminal Justice Services will oversee the appropriate distribution of the funds. The structure, funding and guidelines for operation of Virginia's drug court programs will be studied by the Department of Criminal Justice Services pursuant to Senate Joint Resolution 399. This study will be presented to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by December 1, 1999.)
