(This amendment provides $1.0 million from the general fund in fiscal year 2016 pursuant to the provisions of House Bill 1944 of the 2015 General Assembly Session which revised the method by which the Judicial Department determines who is eligible for court-appointed counsel. A companion amendment in the Department of Corrections reflects the impact of House Bill 1944 on DOC as the legislation includes penalties for providing false information in order to be eligible for court-appointed counsel.)
