(This amendment increases the current allocation for the Virginia Legal Services Corporation for legal aid from $3,600,000 each year to $5,600,000 each year from the general fund. As the result of funding reductions since 2008 in the various funding sources, legal aid programs have eliminated 30 attorneys (20 percent of the total legal aid attorney staff) and also 27 support staff, and the legal aid office in Emporia has been closed.)
