Item 83 #1h

Department of Elections


Page 18, strike lines 5 through 14.

Page 18, after line 22, insert:

"K. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the Department of Elections release a Request for Information in fiscal year 2020 related to the replacement of the Virginia Election and Registration Information System (VERIS). The Department shall provide an update to the Chairs of House Appropriations Committee and the Senate Finance and Appropriations Committee on the options and potential costs for replacing VERIS on or before September 1, 2020."


(This amendment removes language making the replacement of VERIS contingent upon a review by the Virginia Information Technologies Agency, and directs the Department of Elections to release an RFI for the system's replacement.)
