Page 331, line 38, after "FY 2010." insert:
"The amount to be distributed to such a city created by consolidation shall equal the sum distributed to the city during the year prior to the effective date of the consolidation, net of any additional funds allocated by the Compensation Board to the Sheriff of the consolidated city as a result of such consolidation, as adjusted in proportion to the increase or decrease in the total amount distributed to all localities during the applicable year."

(This amendment provides that the new City of Alleghany Highlands, if approved by voter referendum, will receive an allocation of state aid to localities with police departments, in an amount equal to the funds that would have otherwise been provided to the City of Covington, net of any additional funds which may be provided to the Sheriff of the new city by the Compensation Board. The referendum on the merger of Covington and Alleghany County is expected to be held before the end of calendar year 2011.)
