Page 16, line 35, after "fee", insert:

"Effective July 1, 2015, as provided in § 19.2-349, Code of Virginia, treasurers not being compensated on a contingency basis as of January 1, 2015 shall be prohibited from being compensated on a contingency basis but shall be instead compensated administrative cost pursuant to § 58.1-3958, Code of Virginia. Treasurers currently collecting a contingency fee shall be eligible to contract on a contingency fee basis. Effective July 1, 2016, the collection of delinquent court fines, costs, forfeitures, and penalties shall be made consistent with § 19.2-349, Code of Virginia."


(This amendment restores the policy adopted by the 2015 General Assembly concerning court debt collections by local treasurers.)
