"c. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection B of § 9.1-110, Code of Virginia, $23,519,846 the first year and $23,519,846 the second year is provided for the local match required by such subsection."


(This amendment provides an additional $23.5 million each year from the general fund for the School Resource Officer Incentive Grants Fund administered by the Department of Criminal Justice Services. The intent is to cover the local match required by § 9.1-110 in the Code of Virginia for schools that do not currently have a school resource officer. This amendment is associated with Senate Bill 415, which would require each school board to enter into a collaborative agreement with the local law-enforcement agency to employ at least one school resource officer in every public elementary and secondary school in the local school division.)
