Page 425, line 35, after "($35,000)", insert:
", and (iii) funding for all other Offices on Youth heretofore established and provided funding through Item 475 of this act.  The Department of Juvenile Justice may provide funding in the second year for Offices on Youth out of the local allocation if the affected locality so concurs."

(This amendment authorizes the Department of Juvenile Justice to provide funding for all existing Offices on Youth in the second year at the level that was funded in the first year using Virginia Juvenile Community Crime Control Act (VJCCCA) funds, subject to the approval of the affected localities. House Bill 1600, as introduced, recommended funding new Offices on Youth from this funding source. This amendment accepts that recommendation. During fiscal year 2000, there was over $1.5 million in VJCCCA funds unexpended by localities. This amendment seeks to maximize the use of these funds.)
