(This amendment eliminates $9,000,000 the first year and $8,500,000 the second year from the general fund, which was included in the introduced budget to establish three new public defender offices in Chesterfield, Henrico and Prince William Counties. A companion amendment to Item 41 restores funding to the Criminal Fund which was reduced in the budget as introduced, based on the assumption that the three new offices would offset the need for court-appointed counsel.)
