Page 203, strike lines 23 through 30 and insert:
"D.  Notwithstanding the provisions of §§ 17.1-286 and 58.1-3176, Code of Virginia, the Controller shall not make payments to the Circuit Court clerks on amounts directly deposited into the State Treasury by General District Courts, Juvenile and Domestic Relations General District Courts, Combined District Courts, and the Magistrates System.  The State Controller shall continue to make payments, in accordance with §§ 17.1-286 and 58.1-3176, Code of Virginia, to the respective clerks on those amounts directly deposited into the state treasury by the Circuit Courts."

(This amendment is intended to clarify the intent of the 2010 General Assembly to discontinue the policy of paying circuit court clerks commissions on revenues collected by the general district courts but continue this policy for revenues collected through the circuit court. An adjustment has been made to the revenue assumptions to reflect a decrease in state revenues of $2.8 million from the continued payment of these commissions to the circuit court clerks.)
