Drivers License Reinstatement Fee

Page 381, after line 51, insert:
"Notwithstanding § 18.2-270.01 of the Code of Virginia, the drivers license reinstatement fee payable to the Trauma Center Fund shall be $100."

(This amendment increases the drivers license reinstatement fee from $50 to $100 for persons convicted of a second or subsequent violation of the DUI statutes within 10 years of the date of the current offense. The additional fee revenue of $9.0 million will be deposited into the Trauma Center Fund to reimburse trauma centers for the cost of providing emergency medical care to victims of automobile accidents. An amendment to Item 3-1.01 (Interfund Transfers) transfers $6.6 million each year to the general fund during the 2010-12 biennium. The remaining portion estimated at $2.4 million each year will restore funding for 14 trauma centers that was reduced in the introduced budget. All of the additional fee revenue will be distributed to trauma centers beginning July 1, 2012.)
