(This amendment provides $1,000,000 the first year and $2,000,000 the second year from the general fund for 32 additional public defender positions each year. When combined with 16 new positions included in the budget, as introduced, this amendment will provide a total of 48 positions. This will represent 88 percent of the staffing standard adopted by the Indigent Defense Commission for local public defender offices, which is based on providing 75 percent of the staffing available to the Commonwealth's Attorney's office for the corresponding jurisdiction.)
