(This amendment provides additional resources for the Office of the Attorney General to cover costs related to ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers pursuant to the passage of legislation in the 2021 General Assembly Session. This is a placeholder amendment until a final fiscal impact statement is produced. Placeholder amounts reflect costs included in the fiscal impact statement for a similar measure (House Bill 5013) considered in the 2020 Special Session I of the General Assembly.)
