Page 704, after line 30, insert:

"10. Notwithstanding any provision of this act, the Board of the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority may supplement the salary of its Chief Executive Officer in accordance with § 4.1-101.02. The Board should be guided by criteria, which provide a reasonable limit on the total additional income of the Chief Executive Officer. The criteria should include, without limitation, a consideration of the salaries paid to similar officials in comparable independent agencies. The Board shall report such criteria and potential supplement level to the Chairs of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance and Appropriations Committees at least 60 days prior to the effectuation of the compensation action. The Board shall report approved supplements to the Department of Human Resource Management for retention in its record."


(This amendment includes language authorizing the Board of the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Authority to approve a bonus for the ABC's Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The proposed language is based on language already included in the budget for the Director of the Virginia Retirement System and the CEO of Virginia College Savings Plan.)
