(This amendment provides general fund support for the additional fringe benefit costs of circuit court clerks resulting from the proposed change in the excess circuit court clerks' fees to be retained by the Commonwealth. The proportion retained by the state would increase from one-third to two-thirds. Accordingly, by law, the Commonwealth would be required to reimburse two-thirds of the fringe benefit costs for circuit court clerks, instead of one-third. Although the introduced budget bill increases the retention of excess fees, an increase in appropriation for the Compensation Board to cover the fringe benefit costs was inadvertently omitted. A companion amendment increases by the same amount the amount of revenue expected from the change in policy regarding excess fees.)
