(This amendment provides $2.7 million each year from an increase in the marriage license tax proposed in a companion amendment. The marriage license tax would increase from $20 to $50. Ten dollars of this license tax would be allocated to the Office on Family Violence at the Virginia Department of Social Services for distribution to community-based domestic violence agencies for the purpose of providing services to victims of domestic violence, and $30 of this license tax would be used to administer and provide grants to local community-based domestic and sexual violence agencies to provide age-appropriate services and prevention programming to children and youth, and their non-offending caretakers who have been exposed to or experienced domestic or sexual violence.)
