"C. The Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretaries of Administration and Technology, shall review the feasibility of implementing an integrated criminal justice system web portal for the purpose of securely disseminating information to federal, state, and local criminal justice agencies.  Such a web portal would be intended to provide real-time access to information residing in the data systems of the respective agencies participating in the web portal, through a single secure point of entry.  Consideration shall be given to the experience of other states in implementing web portals for similar purposes; the potential value to be gained from sharing information in Virginia's criminal justice system; the potential for supporting the costs for such a web portal through agency fees; and the costs, benefits, potential revenues, and time frames for implementing such a system.  A preliminary report, including initial findings and recommendations, shall be presented to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by December 1, 2015."

(This amendment directs the Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security to review the costs and benefits of establishing an integrated criminal justice web portal as an efficient mechanism for disseminating critical information to local, state, and federal criminal justice agencies.)
