(This amendment provides an additional $2.0 million each year to the Virginia State Bar for indigent civil defense. This will provide sufficient funding for approximately 14 additional housing attorneys for legal aid to better respond to Virginia's housing crisis, and to increase Legal Aid attorney salaries, which have fallen behind those of other public sector attorneys, including increasing the starting salary for Legal Aid attorneys from $48,000 to $51,000.)
