"In addition to any filing fee or other fee permitted by law, an electronic access fee may be charged for each case filed electronically pursuant to Rule 1:7 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Virginia.  The amount of this fee shall be set by the Supreme Court of Virginia.  Moneys collected pursuant to this fee shall be deposited into the state treasury to the credit of the Courts Technology Fund established pursuant to Section 17.1-132 of the Code of Virginia, to be used to support the costs of statewide electronic filing systems."

(This amendment authorizes the Supreme Court of Virginia to establish an electronic access fee to generate additional funds to develop and maintain a statewide electronic case filing system.)
