"G. Included in the amounts appropriated are $1,864,015 and 30 positions the first year and $3,728,030 and 60 positions the second year from the general fund for additional deputy district court clerk positions."


(This amendment provides $1.9 million from the general fund the first year and $3.8 million the second year to allow the hiring of a total of 60 additional deputy district court clerks each year. Identical amounts were included by the Governor for this purpose in House Bill 30 as introduced. According to the Office of the Executive Secretary's staffing model, Virginia's district courts currently employ 276 fewer deputy district court clerks than are identified as needed by the model.)
