"3.  Out of this appropriation, an additional $1,116,050 the second year from the general fund is provided for local law enforcement agencies which are eligible to receive financial assistance under Title 9.1, Chapter 1, Article 8, Code of Virginia.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that these additional funds be allocated only to those local law enforcement agencies that would otherwise lose funding as a result of updated input data in the current House Bill 599 formula, and that any funding received by these local law enforcement agencies through this additional appropriation be used entirely for local law enforcement activities that respond to or reduce the incidence of violent crime."

(This amendment eliminates the proposed redistribution of 40 percent of House Bill 599 funding to cities based upon their violent crime rates. This action continues the distribution of House Bill 599 funds according to the statutory formula currently in place, but holds those localities that would otherwise have lost funding harmless. The amendment also preserves the addition of the Town of Windsor to the distribution formula.)
