"3. No such person shall be released to a pretrial services agency in lieu of secured bond until he is determined by a court to be indigent pursuant to the provisions of Section 19.2-159 of the Code of Virginia."

(This amendment reduces funding for local pretrial services programs by $3,000,000, consistent with the provisions of House Bill 728 of the 2010 Session of the General Assembly, which limits pretrial supervision in lieu of secured bond to persons who have been determined by the court to be indigent. This amendment is contingent upon final passage of House Bill 728.)
