Item 268 #1c

Accounts Transfer Payments, Department of

Page 190, strike lines 39 through 46, and insert:.
"d.  Effective July 1, 2012 Non-participating employers shall be responsible for self administering the payments of benefits in accordance with the requirements of the Line of Duty Act.  The eligibility determination process for the Line of Duty benefit shall continue to be determined consistent with the provisions of § 9.1-403 and any other applicable section of Code. The State Comptroller shall determine and collect from a non-participating employer an amount representing reasonable costs incurred and associated, directly and indirectly, with such eligibility determination.”

(This amendment deletes language under the Line of Duty program which requires localities that opt-out of the statewide program to use the State Comptroller to process their benefit payments. The non-participating localities would still have to provide benefits included under the Line of Duty Act.)
