Item 77 #1s

First Year - FY2023 Second Year - FY2024
Compensation Board FY2023 $0 FY2024 $1,417,208 GF

Page 63, line 14, strike "$64,856,238" and insert "$66,273,446".

Page 65, after line 37, insert:

“P.1. Notwithstanding any provision of law, beginning July 1, 2023, the compensation and expenses of the clerk of the circuit court in the City of Roanoke shall be paid by the Compensation Board. Commensurate with this action, all state funds collected by the clerk of the circuit court of the City of Roanoke shall be paid into the state treasury as provided by general law.

2. Included in this item is $1,417,208 the second year from the general fund to change the method of funding for the clerk of the circuit court in the City of Roanoke from a fee-based system to funding by the Compensation Board."


(This amendment provides $1.4 million GF the second year to convert the Roanoke City Circuit Court Clerk’s office from a fee-based form of funding to funding through the Compensation Board. This office currently receives no funding from the Compensation Board, instead it retains all fees that otherwise would be remitted to the Commonwealth to fund its operations.)
