"D.  At the request of the Attorney General, the Director, Department of Planning and Budget, shall provide an amount from the Miscellaneous Contingency Reserve Account sufficient to pay the compensation, fees, and expenses of counsel appointed by the Office of the Attorney General in actions brought pursuant to § 15.2-1643, Code of Virginia, to cause court facilities to be made secure, or put in good repair, or rendered otherwise safe."

(This amendment requires the Director of the Department of Planning and Budget, when requested by the Attorney General, to provide general fund support for those attorneys appointed to pursue suits brought by judges against localities to improve courthouse security or conditions. Funding for such requests would come from the Commonwealth's Miscellaneous Contingency Reserve Account. This amendment was sought by the Supreme Court of Virginia.)
