(This amendment provides $1,526,724 each year from the general fund to establish six new Circuit Court judgeships, as recommended by the Judicial Council of Virginia. The new judgeships are provided for the 10th Circuit (serving Appomattox, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Halifax, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg and Prince Edward Counties); the 14th Circuit (serving Henrico County); the 15th Circuit (serving Caroline, Essex, Hanover, King George, Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond, Spotsylvania, Stafford and Westmoreland Counties and the City of Fredericksburg); the 26th Circuit (serving Clarke, Frederick, Page, Rockingham, Shenandoah and Warren Counties and the Cities of Harrisonburg and Winchester); the 27 Circuit (serving Bland, Carroll, Floyd, Giles, Grayson, Montgomery, Pulaski and Wythe Counties and the Cities of Galax and Radford); and the 30th Circuit (serving Lee, Scott and Wise Counties and the City of Norton). This amendment is contingent upon final passage of Senate Bill 178 by the 2008 General Assembly.)
