Compensation Board FY2003 $0 FY2004 ($460,000) GF

Page 54, line 21, strike "$37,473,370" and insert "$37,013,370".
Page 56, after line 14, insert:
"I.  The Department of Corrections shall provide the Compensation Board, by the tenth workday of each month, a report identifying all felony sentencing orders which were not submitted within the 30-day period prescribed by § 19.2-310, Code of Virginia.  The Compensation Board shall reduce the monthly reimbursement due any circuit court clerk by $100 for each instance of noncompliance in accordance with the provisions of § 19.2-310, Code of Virginia."

(This amendment implements the provisions of current law, which requires the clerk to forfeit $100 for each sentencing order not submitted within the time period required by law. The amount of the reduction in funds is based on the number of felony sentencing orders that were not received by the Department of Corrections within 35 days of sentencing during the past year, multiplied by $100.)
