(This amendment provides $342,862 from the general fund in the second year to provide for the annual costs of the Indigent Defense Commission's data network, internet access, and legal research software costs. The need for these capabilities was noted in an American Bar Association report, released last spring, which was critical of Virginia's provision of indigent criminal defense services.)
