Page 52, line 19, 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. The amendment removes the June 30, 2018 sunset of localities grandfathered by the language as it exited in Chapter 665 of the 2015 General Assembly.)
