"e. To increase the penalties for a death caused by a person driving with a suspended license  -- $50,000."

(This amendment relates to proposed legislation providing that anyone driving with a suspended license and causing the death of another is guilty of a Class 6 felony. While the proposed legislation has elements in common with § 46.2-868(B), which increased the penalty for reckless driving to a Class 6 felony in cases in which the offender was driving while his license was suspended for a moving violation and his actions were cause of another's death, the proposed legislation includes cases where the license was suspended for any reason, not just due to a moving violation. The funding provided supports the additional correctional bed space required for any new felony convictions associated with the proposed legislation's enhanced penalties.)
