(This amendment provides funding pursuant to House Bill 142, which increases the number of authorized circuit court judgeships for the 20th Circuit from four to five judgeships. The 20th Circuit includes the Counties of Loudoun, Clarke, and Rappahannock. This additional judgeship is recommended under the National Center for State Courts report entitled "Virginia Judicial Workload Assessment Report," finalized in November 2013. This expenditure could be offset by not filling a soon to be vacant judgeship in the 8th Circuit (Hampton). The study recommended reducing the number of judges in the 8th Circuit by one judge.)
