Page 70, after line 14, insert:

"D. Notwithstanding the provisions of § 8.01-490, a treasurer, sheriff or other officer distraining or levying upon personal property may employ a licensed auctioneer or auction firm, as defined in 54.1-600, to sell such property on behalf of the officer, and may transport such property to the site of an auction for such purpose, regardless of whether the site is within or without the officer's county or city."


(This amendment adds language to clarify that an officer, such as a treasurer or sheriff, who distrains or levies upon a property may utilize an auctioneer or auction firm located outside the officer's jurisdiction to sell the property.)
