(This amendment consolidates the Commonwealth's Attorneys' Services Council into the Office of the Attorney General. A companion amendment provides funding to the Office of the Attorney General to assume the responsibility for providing prosecutorial training, technical assistance, and dissemination of information to Commonwealth's Attorneys. The Office of the Attorney General is responsible for defending criminal convictions on appeal as well as defending Virginia when prisoners sue the Commonwealth regarding their convictions.)
