(This amendment provides $2.5 million from the general fund in each year to restore funding for the Department of Elections by the 2020 General Assembly, but was unalloted during the veto session in response to concerns about the expected decrease in revenues due to the pandemic. This funding was intended to ensure the Commonwealth pays 100 percent of the compensation of the registrars and electoral boards based on the compensation amounts listed in the Appropriation Act.)
