(This amendment requests $110,000 from the general fund each year of the biennium to support the continued operation of a full-time Assistant Attorney General to handle complex gang cases throughout the Shenandoah Valley. An Assistant AG is currently handling these cases, at the request of the eight Commonwealth Attorneys in the valley, with the cost of his position being funded through a federal grant which will end June 30, 2008. The OAG has applied for additional federal grants but has been unable to secure continued federal funding.)
