Item 431 #1s

Virginia Information Technologies Agency

Page 295, strike lines 30 through 43 and insert
"B. Notwithstanding the provisions of §56-484.17, Code of Virginia, 60 percent of the Wireless E-911 Fund shall be distributed on a monthly basis to the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) according to the percentage of recurring wireless E-911 funding received by the PSAP as determined by the Board.  The Board shall calculate the distribution percentage for each PSAP annually prior to the start of each fiscal year based on the cost and call load data from all or part of a time period of up to three previous fiscal years."

(This amendment was proposed by the E-911 Board to eliminate outdated language that was codified in 2009 and change the distribution methodology for Wireless E-911 funding to move the date of calculation from October to June and to allow for averaging of cost and call load data in determining allocations.)
