(This amendment provides $123,778 each year from the general fund to support the participation of currently eligible Assistant Commonwealth's Attorneys in the career development program. The budget as introduced included $109,425 each year, which is about 23.5 percent of the total amount required to fully fund 43 assistant attorneys that have already met the criteria to participate in the program but are not currently funded. This amendment provides about 50 percent of the needed funding to align the salaries of these assistant attorneys with others in their offices who also meet the criteria but are already funded for program participation. This represents the next step in the implementation of the career development program.)
