Item 42 #1h

Judicial Department
Circuit Courts

Page 24, after line 46, insert:
"G.  Mandated changes or improvements to court facilities pursuant to § 15.2-1643, Code of Virginia, or otherwise, including any new construction, shall be delayed at the request of the local governing body in which the court is located until June 30, 2014.  The provisions of this item shall not apply to facilities that were subject to litigation on or before November 30, 2008."

(This amendment continues the suspension of the authority of circuit courts to enter orders requiring localities to repair or replace court facilities if they are deemed out of repair. This language was first included in the budget in Chapter 781, 2009 Acts of the Assembly.)
