Compensation Board

Page 49, after line 28, insert:
"R.  Notwithstanding § 17.1-285, Code of Virginia, the Compensation Board shall transfer the Commonwealth's share of excess fee revenue to any circuit court clerk's office that experiences a reduction in state funding.  This transfer shall begin on the first day of the month during any fiscal year in which a budget reduction is enacted that affects the clerk's office's permanent full-time positions authorized by the Compensation Board.  The transfer shall occur on the first day of the month during the fiscal year in the which the state budget reduction occurred.  The locality shall utilize these funds to maintain permanent full-time positions in the clerk's office."

(This amendment transfers the State's share of excess fee revenues to clerks' offices' which have experienced reductions in state funding during the fiscal year. A companion amendment reduces the state's general fund revenue to reflect the loss of revenue from these fees.)
