Page 58, following line 41, insert:
"N. On each marriage license issued under §20-14 of the Code of Virginia there is hereby levied a license tax of $50, which tax shall be collected by the clerk when the license is issued and accounted for as in the case of other state taxes collected by him. Ten dollars of this license tax shall 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, $30 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."

(This amendment creates a new tax of $50 on each marriage license issued in Virginia. The funds generated by this tax will be dedicated to domestic and sexual violence programs.)
