Collection of Delinquent Fines & Fees by Treasurers (language only)

Item 70 #1s

Item 70 #1s

Compensation Board

Page 54, lines 37 through 40, restore the following language:
"Effective January 1, 2016, as provided in Section 19.2-349, Code of Virginia, treasurers shall be prohibited from being compensated on a contingency basis but shall be instead compensated administrative cost pursuant to Section 58.1-3958, Code of Virginia."
Page 54, lines 40 and 41, strike:
"Collections fees shall be paid on a contingency basis out of the proceeds of the amount collected."

(This amendment restores the original intent of the language in this Item concerning the collection of delinquent fines and fees by Treasurers. The language as adopted by the General Assembly in the 2014 appropriation act prohibited Treasurers and other local government entities from charging contingency fees for the collection of delinquent fines and fees, effective January 1, 2016.)
