(This amendment provides language adjusting the Compensation Board's authorized position levels for locally elected constitutional officers to support 302 additional sworn law enforcement deputy positions in sheriffs’ offices statewide, in accordance with the ratio of one law enforcement deputy per 1,500 population as provided in § 15.2-1609.1, Code of Virginia. The source of the population estimates is the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at the University of Virginia, as provided in the Appropriation Act. A companion amendment in Item 72 provides funding to support this change.)
